Flashback Sicily (1)

So yes... The 9th of Octobre I had a one-week great escape to Sicily with Rikke. And I pretty much forgot I hadn't documented it.
We purchased a charter vacation and didn't know how we felt about that. And it was horribly tourist-y throughout the whole thing - but since we were at the Italian island outside the busy season it was actually quite all right.

The water was nice enough tempered to jump in and the first night of our visit, Denmark played against Italy (and lost miserably).

We booked a small trip with the firm (Tui) and got around to see some different towns - and we saw a Godfather location (the church).

Yes, we did see a lot of churches. It is Italy after all.

 Beautiful modern piece in a church in Taormina! And the bus plan changes quite a lot...

Buying food for lunch in the massive super market and eating Italian ice cream from our immediate favourite ice-vendor while watching chick flicks. 

Let's go to the beach, beach, let's play LUDOOOO. And how about going to Etna, the volcano, while we're nearby? (Basaltic stone is blackkkk weee)

Etna is so tall that you go above the clouds. It felt pretty surreal - seemed as you could step right across them. And yes we are considered children and bought Disney rings.

Going to Etna is probably ranked quiet high on my list of great achievements of my lifetime. It was such a fantastic experience ! I'm so glad we went.


 There were several different craters you could visit. Some were easy to get to. Others not so much. I decided to climb that MOUNTAIN (picture with bus) and it was both the worst and greatest idea ever. Rikke had to abandon ship since the air was so light and made the climb harder. I was bloody terrified since there were nothing to hold on to and the path wasn't cleared or made easy for you - it was millions of tiny stones that fell away from under your feet every time you took a step. I felt like I was going to fall down every second. But when I reached the summit it was just so breathtaking - and I'd surprised myself by actually accomplishing the climb.
And those souvenirs were ridiculous, haha.
