I have been to Victoria Falls twice, in 2016 and 2019. Both times I experienced one of the most powerful shows of nature. However in 2019 the whole Zambezi River basin suffered quite a serious drought, and the volume of water dropping down into the gorge was quite low.
Cefalù is nowadays a nice, human sized beach village but it was originally built by the Normans. That is why its marvellous Cathedral shows mosaics similar to those of Monreale and Palermo, also included in the Unesco world heritage.
When I planned my tour of Sicily I thought I would see as much as possible of it, thus I needed to well balance driving time and allocate reasonable visiting time at every stop, including overnights. Mazara del Vallo was a big surprise which exceeded my expectations thus I stayed too short.
Although my grand tour of Sicily was pretty much along the coastline, I decided to add a short detour to the mainland to visit the homeland of hand made ceramic: the city of Caltagirone.
The next morning I drove along the recently completed highway from Aci Sant'Antonio to Siracusa, the capital of the greek culture in Southern Italy.
In the past weeks I have explored quite a lot of my surroundings including places I do not visit very often or where I had never been before despite their proximity.
In 2018 I decided to spend my Christmas Holidays in India. Having just a couple of weeks at my disposal I had to decide which area of the Country I could visit. I choose Rajastan, the north west region, but obviously as my entry gate was Delhi which is not far from Agra, I also included the Incredible Taj Mahal in my visit.
