It’s time to tell the tale of Sicily.
But as I’ve been preparing the photos of our trip over the course of the past week, I’ve realized it’s so hard to put it all into words.
Sicily is, simply, the MOST beautiful place on earth. Full of the MOST beautiful people, who eat the MOST delicious food. And bask in the MOST glorious weather. They’ve been doing everything longer and better than you have – proudly tracing their origins to the Phoenicians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Ottomans. Standing apart from the rest of the world while they do it, on a gleaming hunk of rock teaming with olives, almonds, and citrus in the sparkling Mediterranean.
And lucky me – I’m one of them (at least 50% one of them). And my, how I’ve fallen in love with my ancestral home after this trip, as did the people traveling with me (some of them newcomers to the island, some old friends).
They all felt Sicily’s superlative qualities. We shared in several “best meals ever,” “best cappuccinos ever,” “most beautiful beaches ever,” and I’ve decided that’s all I can really do, to adequately convey the glories of our trip – show you all these “bests.”
In them, you’ll see the Sicily we all now know and love.
