One day we went there and got cold-cut specialties, cheese, bread, fruit and spreads to make a real feast in the evening. A very nice break from eating out.
I love the vibe of such markets, the shouting vendors, the smell of all the food and the buzz of people trying to find the best offer or most ripe tomatoes.

It has been years since I felt the Mediterranean water, and after a few days of being there I decided to go for a swim each morning to wake me up. It made me wish I would live in a place where I could do this every day. It is such a great way to start of the day.

We went to Sicily for 10 days, and stayed in Syracuse on the east side of the island. An old and run down city but very charming with a mix of architecture. In many ways it reminded me of Nice that I visited last year.
We arrived on the 13th and on the 15th of August there was a national holiday, which left the street almost empty; more quiet than during the Siesta. Otherwise the city seemed to be buzzing with life, especially at night where it felt like all the people living in the nearby area took their cars and came into town.
