We will be heading home in exactly one month. I can barely believe it myself. Although I’m not really sure we are ready to go home, I also know we can’t maintain the pace at which we’ve been traveling for much longer.
For the past couple of weeks we’ve been exploring Sicily, and while the weather has been lovely, we aren’t quite sure how we feel about this region of Italy yet. As such, we’ve held back on writing about the towns and cities we’ve visited in detail. However today, I am sharing a photo from our time in Siracusa – a popular tourist destination notable for it’s rich Greek history and architecture.
Our visit, between Christmas and New Years Day, was quiet. Very little was open, there were hardly any other tourists around, and most of the locals seemed to be on vacation. Wandering through the Old Centre of town on one of these quiet, deserted days, we came across a man making large bubbles in the main square – the bubbles naturally attracted every child within a hundred meter radius. It was quite a bit of fun to watch the shrieking kids chase the bubbles, stretching to be the first to pop one. It didn’t hurt that the sun was shining and there wasn’t anywhere we needed to be.
