Ristorante Cala Rossa – Catania

Ristorante Cala Rossa – Catania

Jess and I were ready for our own adventure out into Catania.  Our plan was to go down to Aci Trezza to try a restaurant by the water, but along the way we hit some major traffic.  Everyone on Sicily was trying to get to the same area on this summer night.  Along the way […]

McDonalds ?

McDonalds ?

Does this look like McDonalds? I don’t see the monotonous and bland interior, nor do I see the random mystery stains on the tables or on the attached plastic chairs. Okay I guess the Italians got it right with all the design work on the interior, but the food can’t be as good right?  I’m […]

Trattoria Grotta Azzurra – Enna

Trattoria Grotta Azzurra – Enna

While walking all around Enna all day we built up a big appetite.  We started looking for a restaurant that I read about called Trattoria Grotta Azzurra.  Somehow we were lucky enough to bump right into the restaurant, but like usual… we were waaaayyy early.  7pm is usually an hour early we have found with […]

Enna

Enna

This will be the second time that we went to Enna, although last time we didn’t make it.  Last time our trip got intercepted by the call of the factory outlet mall along the way.  It takes about 1 hour to get to Enna from our place.  Enna is in the smack dab middle of […]

Boston

Boston

After our friends wedding in Kennebunkport we had a couple days to spare before we went back home to Sicily.  We decided to head down to Boston since our flight would be leaving from there and Jess has never been.  I have been to Boston over a dozen times because I had a pretty regular […]

Kennebunkport

Kennebunkport

Back to the States!  We were looking forward to this trip for over a year now.   Our good friends Matt and Laura got married in Kennebunkport and it was an amazing time and place.  Congrats to the bride and groom! This is the first time that we’ve been to Maine and it reminded me a lot of Northern […]

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 […]

Taormina and Gambino Winery

Taormina and Gambino Winery

  We took a trip that included the town of Taormina and a nearby winery, Gambino Winery.  We have heard nothing but good things about Taormina from several people so we were looking forward to seeing it ourselves.  Taormina is about 20 minutes north of where we live.  Below are a some photos to give […]

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 […]
