And so the creative juices couldn't produce anything better than a return for the 3rd time, to Sicily. I remember getting upset at my grandson for not being able to make up his mind what flavor ice cream he wanted, so he decided not to have any ice cream. And then I took a good look at myself, and my in ability to choose a destination, and hammer out an itinerary. So I have stayed close to home for the last few years. Well, of all the destinations, Sicily won out again.
I leave the morning of the 8th of September, flying into Catania. Of all the places to go, I return to Italy and France, then a few days to visit a friend in Belgium. And I always seem to get the same flavor ice cream also. Pistachio Nut and Jamoca Almond Fudge. Not much variation, but I love it. I know I will love Italy and France.... again!
