    Welcome the new year. Today when everyone was still asleep after dinners, balls, parties of the night passed, I wanted to celebrate in my own way. On the road to my land. Welcome to the scents, colors, the sky of my Sicily. A toast to my land. One more year to your age-old history, a year for all of us. Happy New Year Sicily. Happy new year to all

    Recognise some of the roads from my 2010 trip. It is a great country for riding and sightseeing, Here is a shot where everyone stops for a souvenir pic.

    Sicilian riders are one of the friendliest people. We took the ferry from Genoa to Palermo, it turned out the ship's doctor was a biker also, bought us coffee and advised the best routes to take.
    Whilst touring, other bikers stopped us to buy coffes and local cakes (if you like pistachios, it is worth going to Sicily just to taste these cakes!).

    Happy New Year to you too
