An Island Adventure

Last weekend I decided to take a short, two day trip, to Palermo on the island of Sicily. I was in pursuit of some warmer weather and great sites. I was not disappointed!

The first day, I decided to take a walk around Palermo and take in the attractions. Palermo is a beautiful city, complete with the amazing architecture of the Byzantine, Arab, and Italian civilizations; all of who used to control the island. One of the most stunning sites I saw was the Cattedrale de Palermo, which featured all three of these cultures. I was also thrilled that Palermo was also armed with some of the best shopping in Southern Italy and I happily indulged.

The next day, I took a short train ride out to the village of Cefal├╣. The main attraction is the beach, which was amazing. It was great being able to sit out for hours in the warm sun, and it only being mid-march.

I loved my trip to Palermo and hope to return soon!
