Western Sicily

Western Sicily

Indeed, the Island of Sicily is a perhaps often unsung jewel in terms of culture, history, and proximity to the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. From Roman Ruins to Seaside Resorts, from tourist-filled cities, to rolling hills of green olive trees and grapevines, this piece of Europe is a must-see for any well-traveled person.

In this guide we will visit the cities of Erice, Bonagia, Custonaci, Palermo, Catani, Marsala and Agrigento. We will admire the Old Greek temples in the Valley of Temples, in Segesta and Salinunte.

For nature lovers I recommend visitin Zingaro nature reserve, as well as several beaches, sea cliffs and the Salt Flats, a very special part of Sicily's history.

In this guide you will get more than 50 beautiful photos incl. GPS location and offline maps, tips on restaurants and photo tips for all photography lovers.

I am a: full-time, totally enamored Pro photographer {#dreamlife}, Foodie {#sotasty}, wine-lover {#drinkme}, travel junkie {#takemethere #morethanonce} + coffee addict {#wakemeup}.

I am a: philosophical, introspective dreamer and an energetic, outgoing, dynamic do-er. I write {travelblog} when it moves me. I love to cook. I adore rooftop bars {#viewfromthetop} and look for one in every city I love, live and travel to. I am obsessed with quotes. Fresh flowers make me happy. But photography makes me smile. Sometimes in that shy, delighted, just meeting someone kind of way. Sometimes in that broad ear to ear grin kind of way. Still. And hopefully always. This is a world that I belong to that I embrace fearlessly, distinctively, with just a touch of sparkle and a little bit more than a little bit of sass.

I own a boutique portrait and wedding studio, and have for 9 years. Yes, I love and live to travel, and capture everything I can along the way. And yes, it is business {#hardwork}, but it’s primarily a love affair. A journey. A surprise around every corner. A connection with the unexpected. An opportunity to meet with people who share my drive. A chance to explore the sides of me that are vibrant, bold, colorful. An ever-shifting balance between what is unique and ordinary, simple and complex, real and imaginary. Photography is a challenge. And a delight. And it was a fork in my road, the path less traveled, but the one I’m glad I chose. This is my story. And the story continues because I don’t just do it. I teach it. To be inspired and to inspire, to seduce and be seduced. This is the heady thought that wakes me up every morning, that reminds me that today…today and every day… I get to do what I love. And pass that on to others.
