AEOLIAN ISLANDS

VULCANO

WELCOME TO VULCANO ISLAND

After a great couple of days in Sicily, we spontaneously decided to drive up to Milazzo harbour and started our next adventure at Isola di Vulcano. Hopping off the boat and suddenly greeted by the acrid smell of sulphur (just like smelling old eggs). natural healing baths are all over the island. 

 

Therasia resort made me this unique "Thailand" memory of seeing amazing scenery of rocks. Relaxing in a hot tub while looking at incredible rocky mountain in front, is all I need while on vacation!

Swimming in the sea, or salty resort pools or even (my favourite) heated pools - just in case you get bored of the jacuzzi bubbly feeling. Time to turn off and chill.

the BOAT IS ALWAYS FUN

A strong connection to boating has been discovered only a couple of years ago while enjoying summer in the Mediterranean. When there is a boat trip available we always hop on one! Discovery cruise around seven Aeolian islands with great company, listening to the history of volcanic rocks with stops to have a quick dip in the salty sea. Picnic, later shot of local liqueur and enjoying the sunset. Great day with great weather.  

"cruising around seven volcanic islands even just seeing clear blue sky and clean salty sea really made me happy. this simple moment at this magical location was so memorable."

ANOTHER MICHELIN DINNER at IL CAPPERO

The tasting menu at Michelin star restaurants is one of my favourite things while on vacation. Strong flavoured and esthetically beautifully plated dishes, sometimes with a feeling sorry to eat it.

The theme of tonight's dinner was "the taste around the world". Every single dish was representing a different country - what a great idea. 

A little confession to make. This was the only ten-course menu I haven't enjoyed at all. My stomach was very woohooo after a day on the boat and so I felt like dying while sitting at this restaurant instead of enjoying. I felt so so bad that after dinner (eating only a bites and not touching the seafood) I simply passed out and woke up with a strong gastric flu. But overall I am sure it was amazing, as my buddy sitting across the table said.
