A little bit about me - since semi-retirement I live a sort of split life in two European countries and enjoy living and travelling in a budget fashion.
I live for part of the year, usually spring and autumn, on the east coast of Sicily, close to the city of Siracusa.
Twice a year I drive from England to Sicily and twice a year from Sicily to England.
The Sicilian plan is to experience a Mediterranean lifestyle whilst visiting as many destinations as possible on this largest island in the Mediterranean and the places within easy reach.
I enjoy finding out everything there is to know about a place and revisiting until I am totally immersed. Favourites are large cities and remote villages, anywhere and everywhere, where I like to live the local way of life.
The photograph of Mount Etna was taken 18.4.2014 with a 'Libeccio' sunset.
