Flashback Sicily (2)

Giardina Naxos, also known as the first city founded on Sicily, also known as where we lived, is apparently famous for that church.

Giardini Naxos is a city located at the bay. We had to walk for just 2 minutes to reach the ocean! Our hotel had a nice location, weee.

Sun, sun, sun. And fooood.

Grocery shoppingggg. And pizza (naturally).

We befriended this lovely couple of other Danes. They didn't really know how to feel about the too-tourist-y feel of things, haha. They were so nice and we had some great evenings playing cards with them.

Close to Taormina, which is close to Giardini Naxos, is a well-known island called Isola Bella. But you have to take the cable car. And I'm sort of afraid of heights. But I did it and made it to the place.

I found a jelly fish, iiiiiih.
And I hijacked some Brits boarding a boat to see the Grotta D'Azurra (Blue Cave). It's an optic phenomena where the light in the cave makes the water seem a mind-boggling shade of blue.

Back to Taor-"most romantic city in the world"-mina to see the old Colosseum and eat the last dinner meal of the trip - naturally with an ocean view.

The very last day went by without great drama. It was the coldest day of our stay and every weather forecast said that it would start raining and becoming colder. So it really was time to go home to even colder little Denmark. 
But we read by the beach, took a quick dip in the water one last time and went home to pack.

My two favourite Polaroids from the trip. Taormina and Etnaaaa.

I did shop. But only a tiny bit.
Our ice-vendor had this fantastic photograph hanging in his shop. It is so cute, haha ! It was so much fun to see him looking at us as normal, semi-annoying tourist the first time we said hello to him and then him wishing us a safe flight back home on the last day. He was a lovely man.
