The Sicily Chronicles...the finale.

I'm sure by now you are well and truly aware that I went to Sicily recently. If you are not aware of this fact, well... I went to Sicily recently.

This post is all about showing you just how amazing Sicily is. Forget for just a moment the practical info and the websites for B&Bs. Just look at how fantastic it is...

These olives were growing right where we were staying.
Erice- a small town in the mountains, reachable by cable car.

The leaves of this fig plant were so thick you could carve your name into them

We took a trip to the Lo Zingaro nature reserve, and unfortunately we couldn't see much of the park. Why? Because recently there have been a lot of forest fires. Such a big shame that this once beautiful landscape had been reduced to blackened tree stumps and ash. Who knows how long it'll take for it to be reduced to what it was before.

But I don't want to finish on a negative note.

All I have to say is: Go to Sicily. It's incredible.
