Primavera Siciliana

In the Springtime of 2015, I made a trip to Sicily. My route was from Vancouver to London, where I spent a day before continuing on to Catania. I rented a car in Catania, and drove to the touristy town of Taormina for a few days. These are the pages of the photos I took. To keep the pages at a manageable size, the photos are on five pages: Taormina, Cefalù, Villa Romana del Casale, Agrigento, and Syracusa.

“Royal Geographic Society – Welcome” I had recently read a book called “The Lost City of Z” about a Victorian-era British explorer to South America. The Royal Geographic Society figured into the story, so I though I would pop-in to see what was what.

The Victoria and Albert Museum – One of the best in the world, and a pretty good place for lunch.
