Sicily - Day 2, Mount Etna and Taomina

For the first part of this holiday, the hotel in which I'm staying charges for WIFI and limits that to 2 GB for the 3 allocation.  My data here generally is OK, but in the hotel is painfully slow. 

So tonight, just a taster from each of those places and full blog when I get home

Mount Etna - at the time, 2,900 metres high.. minus 5 degrees, and snow and ice on the lava!  It last erupted in 2018 - so far, this year's been OK .. gulp!!

Just a few pics.

and yes, I walked up to there ! :)

and late afternoon, in Taomina... a town on a hilltop

Day 1 - Sicily, Catania - Letojanni

Awake at 03.30 and left home at 04.15 a.m.  so if any of this makes sense, I shall be pleased!

Data is slow where I am currently and WIFI - intermittant... so blog posting and picture uploads might be sporadic! :)

The flight left late but was straight forward and then off by coach to the hotel - this being high on a cliff with sea views.

The flowers on this tree are amazing and I've no idea what it is!
