Forza D' Argo is the most charming little hilltop village. You feel as though you have stepped back in time while wandering the tiny, curving alleyways.

Villa Romana


I made the journey to Piazza Armerina and the Villa Romana over the Thanksgiving holiday. The villa is an active archaeological sight, and truly an inspiring place to visit.

This train track is not far from my house. A small train, with only two cars, travels back and forth. I can watch from my balcony. It blows a whistle that sounds like a toy train as is passes.

Motta Santa Anastasia Castle


I drive by this inspiring scene everyday. I realize that I seem to be posting only landscapes. At this point, I am completely absorbed with the beauty of this place. In every direction, something photo-worthy appears.

Street Soccer/Calcio in Sicily

These little boys  continuously kicked the soccer ball into the main street, causing cars to come to a screeching hault.  I guess this was the only place that they had to play.  They seemed to be having a lot of fun.
