Wine tasting for 4

The wine association I am a member of organizes special wine tastings also with small groups and we went to visit a small winery by the Etna slopes who produces only 3,700 bottles a year. Here we walked in the wineyards, learnt about the vine process, special details of the soils effect and how the rains fall….and at the end we tasted the winerys red and white wine together with other products produced on the yard and local cheeses. A special day in a special place.

Vinf?reningen som jag ?r medlem i organiserar speciella vinprovningar ?ven med sm? grupper och vi h?ngde med f?r att bes?ka en liten ving?rd vid Etnas backar som producerar endast 3,700 flaskor om ?ret. H?r gick vi kring vinrankorna, l?rde oss om vinprocessen, speciella detaljer om markens effekt och hur regnen faller …. och i slutet smakade vi ving?rdens r?da och vita vin tillsammans med andra produkter som produceras p? g?rden och lokala ostar. En speciell dag p? en speciell plats.

Emilio Pucci Bikini Bar World Tour at Timeo Taormina

Emilio Pucci has a Bikini Bar World Tour to promote his summer beach wear 2017 and yesterday the tour landed in Taormina at the Grand Hotel Timeo with an amazing unique view. It is one of the most impressive hotels in the world as Richard Gere said last years film festival in Taormina that he has never been in such place before. This tour goes from Tokyo to Beirut to Cannes and so on. Got an invitation from my favourite store in Taormina, Taormina Mood, at Corso Umberto which I recommend to visit if you are here as he buys in very special items from designers, here you do not find the classical line of fashion, just unique items. The blog writer in blue long dress. Visit Timeo if you are here, a classical breakfast at the terrace is a must; cappuccino and cornetto.

Emilio Pucci har en Bikini Bar World Tour f?r att marknadsf?ra sin sommarbadkollektion 2017 och ig?r landade turnen i Taormina p? Grand Hotel Timeo med en fantastisk unik utsikt. Det ?r ett av de mest imponerande hotellen i v?rlden som Richard Gere sa under fjol?rets filmfestival i Taormina att han aldrig varit p? s?dan plats tidigare. Denna turn? g?r fr?n Tokyo till Beirut till Cannes och s? vidare. Fick en inbjudan fr?n min favoritbutik i Taormina, Taormina Mood, p? Corso Umberto som jag rekommenderar att bes?ka om du ?r h?r d? han k?per in mycket speciella saker fr?n designers, h?r hittar du inte den klassiska modetypen, bara unika f?rem?l. Bloggf?rfattaren i bl? l?ng kl?nning. Bes?k Timeo om du ?r h?r, en klassisk frukost p? terrassen ?r ett m?ste; Cappuccino och cornetto.

Helicopter – Smoking Craters -Etna – The View – The Must Do!

Helicopter tour around Etna and its top crater is one of the most exciting things I ever done in my life and a must do if you come to Sicily. It is worth every cent spent! First you fly from the north side of Etna towards the top crater, around the volcano and at the end almost above the crater so you can see inside it. The back the helicopter flies just above the freshest lava flows back to the station again.

I flew with Sicily Private Spot and they do not fly if the crater is covered by clouds, and you even get your money back if the weather is not good. Here is their website www.sicilyspot.com

Helikoptertur runt Etna och dess h?gsta krater ?r en av de mest sp?nnande saker jag n?gonsin gjort i mitt liv och ett m?ste om du kommer till Sicilien. Det ?r v?rt varje spenderat ?re! F?rst flyger du fr?n norra sidan av Etna mot toppkratern, runt vulkanen och i slutet n?stan ?ver kratern s? att du kan se ner i den. Tillbakaf?rden med helikoptern flyger ni strax ovanf?r de f?rskaste lavastr?mmarna tills ni landar tillbaka p? stationen igen.

Jag fl?g med Sicily Private Spot och de flyger inte om krateren ?r t?ckt av moln, och du f?r ?ven pengarna tillbaka om v?dret inte ?r bra. H?r ?r deras hemsida www.sicilyspot.com

Visiting Lava flows on Etna at 2800 m a.s.l.

Yesterday I got the amazing opportunity to visit lava flows on the south side of Etna at 2800 m a.s.l. To be close to one of the natures most fascinating forces is an experience words can not cover. See the lava move like a river down hills and feel the heat in the middle of the snow is truly amazing. Here to witness wonders of the earth and understand how incredible small we are standing on one of the worlds most active volcanos.

We took the cable car to 2500m and then walked to 2800m. Arrived to the lava stream by 6pm, just before seeing the sunset towards south and see the red color of lava in the dark. The we had to walk back from 2800m to Rifugio Sapienza at 1900m. Tough tours, but really worth it. A memory for life. With these snow walls and weather conditions I felt like late spring home in Lapland.

Svenska

I g?r hade jag den fantastiska m?jligheten att bes?ka lavafl?den p? den s?dra sidan av Etna p? 2800m. F?r att vara n?ra en av naturens mest fascinerande krafter ?r en upplevelse ord inte kan beskriva. Se lava r?ra sig som en flod ner f?r berget, samt k?nna v?rmen i mitten av sn?n ?r verkligen fantastiskt. H?r f?r att bevittna jordens underverk och f?rst? hur otroligt sm? vi ?r st?endes p? en av v?rldens mest aktiva vulkaner.

Vi tog linbanan till 2500m och sedan gick till 2800m. Anl?nde till lavastr?mmen kring 18:00, strax innan f?r att se solnedg?ngen mot s?der och se den r?da f?rgen p? lavan i m?rkret. Sen var vi tvungna att g? tillbaka fr?n 2800m till Rifugio Sapienza p? 1900m. Tuff tur, men verkligen v?rt det. Ett minne f?r livet. Med dessa sn? v?ggar och v?derf?rh?llanden k?ndes det som senv?ren hemma i Lappland.

Standing under an erupting crater

We went to the north side of Etna, Etna Nord, by the sunset. It is an amazing trip with jeeps where you climb up above the clouds and wait for the sun to sink in to the mediterranean sea. We were lucky to also experience a very unique happening. A new crater was born 25th July this year and were lucky to stand just under it to see and hear it erupt! It is a very unique thing to experience….

Svenska

Vi ?kte till den norra sidan av Etna, Etna Nord, vid solnedg?ngen. Det ?r en fantastisk resa med jeepar d?r du kl?ttrar upp ovanf?r molnen och v?ntar p? att solen ska sjunka in i Medelhavet. Vi hade tur att ocks? uppleva en mycket unik h?ndelse. En ny krater f?ddes 25 juli i ?r och vi var lycklig att st? strax under den f?r att se och h?ra utbrottet! Det ?r en mycket unik sak att erfara….
