Hockey in Sicily

Hockey in Sicily

Hockey and Sicily don’t seem like two words that should find themselves in the same sentence.  It’s hard enough to find ice for drinks let alone a whole sheet of ice to play a sport on.  Luckily ice isn’t absolutely necessary and luckily I didn’t leave my hockey equipment in the States when we moved […]

IKEA Catania

IKEA Catania

I thought it would be funny to show the differences between IKEA here in Sicily and back home in the States.  There is a new IKEA in nearby Catania that is the only IKEA in Sicily.  The store is pretty much the same as back home, but the cafe and food area is definitely different […]

Sicilian House Hunters International

Sicilian House Hunters International

  There were about 5 different trips that we took all together looking for places and I wanted to condense them down to one post.  We had a good time looking at places and there were definitely some highlights and some lowlights.  The cultural differences definitely came into play with random layouts, small kitchens, and […]

  Just thought I would have a random post about the fact I was finally able to get my iphone unlocked and working properly with an Italian sim card and service from Vodafone.  It was a bit of a process to finally figure out the way to make it all happen.  Long story short I […]
