Lipari Island – A Sicilian Getaway

What do you do when you are on an island for an extended period of time? You go to a smaller nearby island. Sorry for the random thought, but I think its funny how many islands we have been to over the past couple years. We might have an obsession with them or maybe some […]

Skiing & Snowboarding in Sicily

Skiing & Snowboarding in Sicily

Its funny how much is packed on this island.  I always thought San Diego was unique because you could go skiing and surfing all in the same day, but here its even easier.  It takes about 40 minutes from where we are to get up the mountain and its amazing how the scenery changes.  You […]

West Coast Sicily Wineries – Planeta Winery & Donnafugata Winery

A trip to the West coast of Sicily has been looming over us for the past year.  It has always been on our list to explore over there, but always gets aced for something else that comes up.  The 2+ hour drive definitely has influenced our decision.  Back in August something came up that forced […]

Wakeboarding in Sicily

Ricotta Cheese Farm

Ricotta Cheese Farm

We decided to make some cheese…haha.   There was an outing to a local cheese farm that has some of the best Ricotta in Sicily.  Part of the deal was that we were able to watch and get involved with the whole process, which was pretty cool.

Agrigento Sicily – Valley of the Temples

Agrigento Sicily – Valley of the Temples

Agrigento is a place that every visitor of Sicily should try to make.  Especially if you are into archeological things.  Agrigento is well known for its well preserved Greek temples that date back to 580 B.C. !!  Now I understand why they call America the New World.   Wikipedia has a page about Agrigento that […]

Back in early April, Jess and I wanted to go for a road trip.  We hadn’t been up the Northern coastline yet and Mario told us of a place called Tindari.  Its located on the Northeastern coastline of Sicily and has a ton of history.  The story behind the black Madonna and the duomo is […]

Ragusa, Ragusa Ibla, Modica, Scicli, and Marina di Ragusa

For our 3rd Anniversary we decided to put together a little trip to Southeastern Sicily.  We stayed at a great place in Marina di Ragusa called La Moresca and explored all around the area.  With our anniversary being in October we found all the towns to be quiet with all the tourists long gone! This […]
