Visiting lava flows on etna at 2800 m a.s.l.
Yesterday I got the amazing opportunity to visit lava flows on the south side of Etna at 2800 m a.s.l. To be close to one of the natures most fascinating forces is an experience words can not cover. See the lava move like a river down hills and feel the heat in the middle of […] The post...
Marina di ragusa – its amazing beaches
Marina di Ragusa is one of my favourite areas in Sicily. It was here I started my sicilian adventure and opened my activity here. I am glad I moved here first, because if I had started even in the place where I live now, I don't think I would still be in Sicily. Reason is […] The post Marina...

Out in the sicilian citrus fields
When I am out in the fields it is like paradise. You breath fresh air, look at all the hard work people do by hand and you are where we should be...in the nature. I feel free. This is one of my favourite part of my work, but also the most difficult. Regulary I visit […] The post Out in the...
Finally bbc has discovered sicily
I love this island like my home Lapland. Sicily is not complicated as sicilians say. Sicily is just difficult, like a wild horse you have to ride in and it took some years for us two to become friends. Sure I have lived here past life as it took so short time to understand what […] The post...

Women who lunch
It is quite common that resturants and bars offers foods or an "after-meal" drink for free. Especially if you are a group of foreign women in tourist places they often offer small side dishes and then a drink to help digestion afterwards. It is very common in non touristical areas that this...
