We went to Sicily for a week, to get away from it all. Here we rented a villa, Villa Cristina, located in a rural area, but not too far from Siracusa. Simple yet cozy accommodation. The garden was huge and there were orange and olive trees, banana plants, grapes, tomatoes, chili peppers, herbs and much more. I love basil!Sweet tomatoes! I can eat Cherry tomatoes like candies!These bananas were not edible but the flowering herb was both decorative and exotic.
Did you know that banana plants are the world’s largest herb!
Could be a kind of herb??
Oranges, some were a bit too ripe.
Green sweet grapes
I have no idea what this may be.
Grapes, grapes, there were lots of grapes.
Above you see some images from the garden where we could pick and eat whatever we liked. There’s more to find in the garden and we did some trips with our car to a few towns and secluded beaches. More to come from Sicily in Italy!
It was a long time since I felt as relaxed as during our stay in Sicily. Away from it all, away from the outside world. Perhaps something we all need from time to time, completely without any internet access.
I love Italy and from Malta to Sicily it only takes 90 minutes by ferry. You can take a day trip or stay over the weekend. We went to Taormina, a city with a lovely Italian atmosphere, wonderful food and so nice people. And the best part is that you can take your little puppy with you…

The island is so small that they had to build a building on water where the restaurant are located.
Situated within the Sea Turtle Corridor, Lankayan Island is also a nesting place and foraging ground for sea turtles.
Forget about the internet, forget about the outside world, enjoy the moment.
Here you will find lots of turtles. Both in the water and on land where they lay their eggs.
Feel free like a bird, let your thoughts fly high!
An island, covered by thick tropical vegetation on its topside and ringed by an endless pure white sandy beach and crystal clear water. This jewel-like tiny island in the Sulu Sea is a real beauty and a place for serenity.
