Week one

Ok, so I’m clearly getting older, the time that it’s taking me to adjust is proof. It’s also been quite hot, so that could be a factor. Overall though I’d say things are going well.

I’m in a smaller village East of Palermo and though it has a good selection of restaurants, cafes, markets, and a small electronics store. I do need to go to one of the larger towns for some household items I’d like for the new place. They’re only a 20 or so minute train ride away so it’s not a big deal.

The most difficult part by far has been the heat. I knew it would take some getting used to for me, but I just happened to arrive during a heatwave. Last night it was in the low 90’s through the night… did I mention I don’t have a/c? Luckily one of the first things I did was get a couple of fans. I can’t say they made last night great, but they definitely helped me through it.

Some of you may have seen pictures of just a few of the many great little beaches nearby. I plan to travel around the island in the coming months and practice my photography, so keep an eye on my Instagram and Facebook pages if you’re interested.

Also, your feedback and support are greatly appreciated. I want to make a site that is helpful and fun, so tell me what you’re liking, or not, and help me spread the word about the site and pages.




A piu tardi,
