    4 favorite Italian drinks

    As you’ve all seen we’ve had both Greek and Indian dinner, so it’s about time we take the food travels to Italy for some pasta and a few Italian drinks. As we were planning our menu for the night we kind of stumbled upon the idea of making cocktails in Italian fashion, and who am I to say no to a great idea huh? So cocktails it is! Keep in mind though when you’re reading this, we’re not always keeping the original recipes, due to the simple facts that our little bar at home did not have all the ingredients. Aperol Spritz So let’s start off with a fun fact,…

    Drinks on the beach

      Angelica and Annon the beach in Giardini Naxos. Drinks on the beach in Sicily whilst celebrating our birthdays. Yes, the both of us, we’re actually born on the same day just some years apart. And if you ask me, who turned 40 that day, that was not a bad way to celebrate your birthday. Would I like to go back to Sicily? For sure. But I guess I’ve seen Giardini Naxos for now, and Sicily has so much more to offer so if I could go back for a week or two I would love to see the botanical gardens and Catacombs in Palermo or the Greek amphietheatre in…

    Lazy pooldays

    Yes, we’re on a roll here, so lets stick with it. Lazy pooldays. Our poolarea in Sicily was the best. Sunbeds by the pool. Sunbeds by the lavarocks overlooking the ocean. A resturant overlooking the pool. It was really great. But my favorite time hanging out by the pool was in morning, watching the sunrise. You know that special time, before the world awakes and theres no sound but nature. Peaceful and quiet, thats just the best. I’m somewhat of an earlybird. I love the mornings. Yes, I love the mornings, but as I’ve told you before, I’m just not a peopleperson in the mornings. I love the quiet mornings…

    Grand Hotel Arathena Rocks

      Lets stick with Sicily for a while longer, as I said there are so much I havent shown you yet… Here are some images of the interior of our hotel, beautiful right? Nicely decorated with different colours everywhere, I really enjoyed our stay at Arathena Rocks, it sure was a great hotel. Our rooms were big and cozy, with a view overlooking the volcano Etna. Couldnt have asked for more. //Ann Dont forget to join us on Facebook and Instagram for daily updates and more images.

  • Italy - Giardini Naxos


      On last years summer vacation we spent a week in Sicily, mainly Giardini Naxos, but we we managed the time so we had some left for a trip to Taormina, on the east coast of the island. You know what, as I’m looking through the images that we took during this trip, I realise that theree are lots and lot of images that we havent shown you at all. So I do belive that there will be more post from our trip to Sicily. Its a beautiful and viberant city, filled with all that Sicily can offer. The smell of pasta at dinner time, the sounds of people sharing…

    Lightning storm in Sicily

      Kind of cool right? I wouldnt say that we had bad weather, but a few raindrops and the occasional thunderclouds came rolling in over the mountains every day during our visit in Sicily. The rain kept pooring for about an hour or so, so it wasnt bad, it gave us a perfect break from the sun everyday. //Ann #travelblogger #travelphotography #sicilien #italiensk #naturephotography
