When Greece comes to mind we immediately think of three things; wonderful beaches, ancient ruins and financial ruin.
The first two are very prevalent whilst evidence of the third can been seen when we entered Athens on the newly built freeway with barely any traffic at all!

Sicily & Amalfi Coast
Mythology, Judaism, Christianity, Islam… The religions of Sicily are the faiths of the Mediterranean. Coming from North & South, East & West, every civilisation that has conquered Sicily has left its theological influence.
Palermo, the capital , is called The Most Conquered City in the World.
With its stunningly beautiful harbor and towering mountains, it has been a settled area even before history was written.
One of the highlights of Palermo is the Capo market. This place is an explosion of colors, fast scooters , animals (even horses!) and loud shouting as vendors compete to attract potential customers their way.
We had an interesting time on the island and to finish out trip in Italy we couldn’t help but ride the beautiful Amalfi Coast one more time.

Back to reality after spending a week floating around Venice and Verona.
After doing a few running maintenance jobs and repairs in the car park of a supermarket (after hours of course!), we visited some friends in the beautiful “Lago di Garda” region who were kind enough to host us for a weekend. Thanks a million Umberto, Prudenza & Semir!
Since then we have been traveling the beautiful islands of Corsica (France) and Sardinia (Italy) which can only be described as breathtaking.
