My stay in Sicily and to be more precise, in the busy town of Palermo, has reminded me once again that relationships are everything! As you know, we recently moved from San Diego to Sicily and while starting our new life in Palermo we’ve had to find resources for everyday things that we need in order to settle… Read More »


I want you to know this…

If you’re anything like us, you get flooded each day with marketing e-mails. Luxury hotels. Airfare offers. Cruise specials. When marketers inundate your inbox, it can feel like you’re drowning in a sea of “special deals” and “last-minute” promotions.

Isn’t it a horrible feeling to find out, after the fact, that your clients had issues during their trip? You know what I’m talking about, that nauseating, awful feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when something bad happens to you that could have been avoided.

Do you love pasta?

Fall in Italy is my favorite time of year. Towns bustle with festivals and fairs. Grapes get picked on foliage-draped hills. And, the air turns crisp and clear.

It is Wednesday night here when it is Wednesday afternoon at our home office in San Diego and the newsletter guy is knocking on my “computer” asking me where the heck I am.… Read More »


Spectacular Sicily

I love all of Italy. But, I have to confess: Sicily is especially spectacular. In Favignana, you can bask on a sailboat — bobbing in blue waters In Agrigento, you can peruse stone temples built by Ancient Greeks In Taormina, you can view snow-capped Etna and the shimmering sea In Palermo , you can savor local sweets… Read More »


WHY SEE-CILY?

Well, a lot of people have been asking me lately, “Why Sicily?” I tell them that we chose to move to See-cil y instead of the rolling hills of Tuscany or my beloved hometown of Turin, which is conveniently located in the lovely wine region of Piemonte, for many reasons but the greatest of these is LOVE. My family fell in love… Read More »
