Greetings, all! Welcome to VOX, which will allow me to post stories about our misadventures here in Europe and upload photos as well. Actually, the old site let me post photos, too, but I was just too technologically challenged to figure out how to do it there.
There’s more to follow, but I have to keep this short today as I’m packing for our trip to Sicily tomorrow. We plan to meet my parents there and spend a week exploring churches, castles and ruins; sampling the local fare (including a special wine made from grapes grown in the volcanic ash at the foot of Mt. Etna) and even doing a little fishing. We’re really looking forward to it!
The trip is a birthday present for Johann and my mother, who both have birthdays in October. And since all presents should come with pretty wrapping, we’re staying at the Hellenia Yachting Hotel in Taormina (see photos at right). If it’s half as good as it looks, we’ll be thrilled.
Thanks for visiting my blog and stay tuned for more soon!
