Nestled between the slope of Mount Etna and the majestic Mediterranean Sea is where we enjoy the Sicilian Simplicity

Yes, many days have passed and time has flown by. In late December I flew to the states to spend my birthday and Christmas with my family, and it was a very Merry Christmas.
In early January I flew down to Jacksonville, Florida where I met up with my love to sail six weeks with him, as he finishes his contract. Every week we are in Key West and the Bahamas. Our last Nassau day was spent at the Atlantis Hotel, enjoying their aquarium and white sand beach. I had never been there and it was a beautiful day.
After months of enjoying the flavours of Sicily, I would have to say that the foods are one of the most important things that I miss. I am in withdrawal, especially as I am currently sailing on a passenger cruise ship that cooks for the masses. I can not even begin to discuss the sadness that takes over us at every mealtime. But, we must be strong!
I have been carried away to a world that stops to taste the sweetness of the land, and admire all the treasures that their rich black soil provides. Now my journey begins as we enjoy the simple pleasures of the life! We came from different worlds, spoke different languages, but that didn’t stop us. We have our home in Sicily, and many adventures await us. Sicilia is our home!
Sailing across the Gulf of Mexico, I had the pleasure of meeting the most amazing man. Little did I know that he would eventually become the love of my life and would change my world. We were both working aboard a cruise line at the time. He, an Italian Engineer, and I, the featured headlining Vocalist, met at a crew party and the rest is history. Our beginning...
