island brothers

The Isole Egadi each have a unique personality; like three siblings living in the same neighbourhood. One is the quiet, handsome poet, one a rugged and burly fisherman, and the third a gregarious socialite.

Fast, efficient ferries connect the islands, making a full day round trip possible from my base on Levanzo. A swim here, espresso there, cold granita everywhere. I could have spent a week exploring each island; walking the back country goat trails in Marretimo and cycling to the outlying bays on Favingnana, but island time must end, and the Italian voyage migrate northwards to Venezia.

Arriverderci Sicilia, grazie mille.
