Sicily, Italy//Part Two

Day two in Sicily once again began with Nutella and croissants. After all, it wouldn’t be a real day in Italy without carbs and hazelnut spread! Shortly after we were on the road.

Cici and her family drove us out to the country toward Erice, where we were to spend the day. On the way we experienced a bit of a traffic jam due to a herd of sheep in the middle of the road. We were so fascinated by this and quickly jumped out of the car to take a picture. The shepherds we’re definitely confused as to why we were chasing the sheep down a country road, but I think it added a little entertainment to their everyday shepherding (haha!).

We spent the majority of the day walking around Mount Erice, a mountain overlooking the city of Trapani. The views were absolutely breathtaking and we were able to experience a beautiful sunset after our day of exploring.

Our final morning was spent walking around the beautiful, quaint town of Salemi and the rest of the afternoon we explored Palermo, Sicily’s capital. Sicily was one of the hardest goodbyes, but one of my favorite experiences abroad. If you ever have the chance to visit Sicily, do it! It was more beautiful than I could have imagined. 

Thanks for reading, Ciao!
