We are on holidays - catching up on some reading and have been enjoying Douglas Sladen's 1905 book, " Sicily The New Winter Resort". It is a classic. Here is the opening sentence in chapter one-

" Sicily is the best winter resort in Europe : its climate is more equable than the Riviera,it has no mistral,and there is more to interest people who go abroad to see fresh scenes,and not merely to reproduce English life under more genial skies."

Blog posts will be back in mid January.  Happy holidays.
