So just back from my holidays and still have a few days off until I go back to work. Today is the wash the clothes and try to get back to normality day, why are holidays away like that. You get back and you kinda feel out of sorts, bit weird to me anyway. I stayed in a place called Capaci, about 10 miles from Palermo. The weather as you would expect was excellent, hot everyday and the coldest it got during the night was the high 80s.
I don’t take a lot of photos when I am away, my wife is more the one for the photos but above and below are some of the ones I took. We stayed in a villa which was very nice and Capaci is a laid back easy going place. The beach was very busy at weekends and def better to go during the week, the sunsets were something else. Most people come out later at night as it is just a little cooler overall.
Right outside where we were staying an older gentleman drove an original 1967 or thereabouts Fiat 500. It had over 200,000 on the clock and the only car the guy had ever owned and he didn’t see the need to change it, as in his words ” it still worked “.
So just some photos from my trip, my wife and friends went into Palermo for the day but I decided to be lazy, and given how mental the drivers were I decided to chill out and have a day to myself. I went for a walk, ate some bread, had a beer and read a book with my feet up so no photos from Palermo but I am sure my wife has a few. Sicily is a lovely place, some things are pretty expensive and others not. We went self catering as I prefer to do that. The pizza is very good, the beer not great, the pasta good but most days I had an egg sandwich for breakfast. You can’t take Dundee out of the boy. The people are mostly friendly but things like public transport where we stayed was not great so we had to hire a car, my wife drove lol and given how she drives (hopefully she won’t read this) fit in really well but seriously she was brilliant and braver than I could ever be.
It was good to get away and have a break, next year we are thinking we will play it by ear, and depending on the EU situation with travel, we might just stay in the UK and visit down south.
