Aeolian Lipari – Pumice stone and Around the island vespa tour

Lipari is slow living island north of Sicily, part of the Aeolian islands. Here Pumice stone was extracted for stone washed jeans and the beauty industry. After 2nd world war Mussolini’s daughter was placed in exile here.

As to this date you can bring your car with if booked an accommodation, easiest is though by Vespa.

Sicily Marina’s | Marina di Ragusa

If you have a nice yacht, it is a good idea to park it in Marina di Ragusa like the world’s largest sailing yacht A does every summer. Sicily’s most beautiful Marina, best beaches on the island and great restaurants.


Om du har en yacht är det en bra idé att parkera den i Marina di Ragusa som världens största segelbåt A gör varje sommar. Siciliens vackraste småbåtshamn, bästa stränderna på ön och fantastiska restauranger.

Crossing those waves with the Icon – Summer in Sicily

First real summer day in Taormina and it was time to lift the ancor of the yacht to take a bubble and gourmet tour around the stunning coast line of Giardini-Naxos, Taormina, Isola Bella and Letojanni. You have not seen Taormina properly if not seen from the sea side! Nuff talking, I let the photos speak…


F?rsta riktiga sommardagen i Taormina och det var dags att lyfta b?tens ankare f?r en bubbel- och gourmettur runt den fantastiska kustlinjen Giardini-Naxos, Taormina, Isola Bella och Letojanni. Du har inte sett Taormina riktigt om du inte sett fr?n havet! Nog med snack, jag l?ter bilderna tala …


Reparations a la Sicilian style

During the “Italian holidays” starts also the reparations a la sicilian style. Makes no sense to fix damages before this period of year I dislike the most is over.
A woman backed in to my Vespa?and I fell,?even if she saw me coming. She was totally destroyed and hysterical. Also afraid what it will costs to repair damages. I saw that they did not have great economy, so I let her go and take the cost myself. She was surprised. I am just tired of all the shit going on until Ferragosto is passed…


Under “italienska semestern” startar ?ven reparationerna a la siciliansk stil. Det ?r meningsl?st att fixa skador innan denna period p? ?ret jag ogillar mest ?r ?ver.
En kvinna backade in i min Vespa och jag f?ll, ?ven om hon s?g mig komma. Hon var helt f?rst?rd och hysterisk. Ocks? r?dd ?ver kostnaderna f?r att reparera skador. Jag s?g att de inte hade bra ekonomiskt, s? jag l?t henne g? och tar kostnaden sj?lv. Hon blev f?rv?nad. Jag ?r bara tr?tt p? all skit som p?g?r tills Ferragosto ?r ?ver…


My Vespa as new….one month ago…


Sicily – Season is officially open

In Sicily the tourist season starts to open up. Beaches gets cleaned, more traffic on the streets, facades gets painted, summer lidos opens…it is like living in a new place when winter turns to summer. Sicily is perhaps the safest area to travel to, I may say that even from Naples and below is very safe in Europe now. And we have the super famous organisation ironically to thank for. Where those guys are, there are also police present. But mafia has better knowledge of who is coming and going than the system itself and they protect their interest carefully. A summer top by Recanati beach is saying “Health And Dick”, so I guess the season if officially open.


P? Sicilien b?rjar turists?songen att ?ppna upp. Str?nder reng?rs, mer trafik p? gatorna, fasaderna blir m?lade, sommar lidon ?ppnas … det ?r som att leva i en ny plats n?r vintern v?nder till sommar. Sicilien ?r kanske det s?kraste omr?det att resa till, kan nog s?ga att ?ven fr?n Napoli och ned?t ?r mycket s?kert i Europa nu. Och vi har den superber?mda organisation ironiskt nog att tacka f?r detta. D?r dessa killar ?r, det finns ocks? poliser n?rvarande. Men maffian har b?ttre kunskap om vem som kommer och g?r ?n sj?lva systemet och de skyddar sina intresse noggrant. En sommar topp fr?n Recanati stranden s?ger “H?lsa och Snopp”, s? jag antar att s?songen officiellt ?r ?ppen.

It may be time to clear this once and for all

I live in a tourist destination and for seven years I have been listening to many sicilian men who brags about the foreign women they slept with and how they used them for a week. So let’s clear this up once and for all. Nordic women travel the world, ?are free, breath the world, live in it and are independent as women and economically. We know men in e.g. Greece, Italy and Turkey are easy men to get in bed and know about those trips there with the girls or even solo, and we know exactly what is going on (eat, drinks and casual sex) but do not talk about it, there’s no need to. It was a one week swing with that italian man and back home we do not have that kind of life style.

Some women may stay in the tourist destination, many though moving back home after some years. Some take the man back to their home country just sending Dimitris back to Greece as the real life is not as during the vacation (Dimitris lovely acts and words fades out, as they often do with these mediterranean men after they “got the girl”). ?Some perhaps manage to create something and that is lovely. How often do not we read in women’s magazines about those men who decides to fly to her home country, rings the door bell just to become an unpleasant surprise finding her living with a country man.

While this sicilian man still talks about that Sinikka from Finland, Anne from Germany or Lisa from Sweden after 5, 10 or 15 years and many times still have feelings for her, that nordic woman is propably back home, having a man from her country, perhaps married with kids and house, vaguely remembering which year she was in Sicily (was it 2001 or 2003, I can’t remember), but she will surely not remember the sicilian mans name and never mentioned him to her friends. It was just a fling…

Problem is when you live in a touristdestination.


Jag bor i ett turistm?l och sju ?r har jag lyssnat p? m?nga sicilianska m?n som skryter om utl?ndska kvinnor som de haft sex med och hur de anv?nde dem i en vecka. S? l?t oss klara upp detta en g?ng f?r alla. Nordiska kvinnor reser i v?rlden, ?r fria, andas v?rlden, lever i den och ?r oberoende kvinnor och ekonomiskt. Vi vet att m?n i t.ex. Grekland, Italien och Turkiet ?r enkla m?n att f? i bingen och vet om dessa resor med flickorna eller solo, och vet exakt vad som h?nder (?ta, dricka och tillf?lligt sex), men talar inte om det, det finns ingen anledning att g?ra det . Det var en veckas sving med den italienska mannen och tillbaka hemma har vi inte den typen av livsstil.

Vissa kvinnor blir kvar p? turistm?let, m?nga flyttar tillbaka hem efter n?gra ?r. Vissa tar mannen tillbaka till sitt hemland f?r att bara skicka Dimitris tillbaka till Grekland d? det verkliga livet inte ?r som under semestern (Dimitris romantiska handlingar och ord tonar ut, som det ofta g?ra med dessa medelhavsm?n efter att de “fick flickan”) . Vissa kanske lyckas skapa n?got och det ?r h?rligt. Hur ofta l?ser vi inte om dessa m?n som sedan reser till kvinnans hemland, ringandes p? hennes d?rr bara f?r att bli en obekv?m ?verraskning d? han finner henne boendes med en landsman.

Denna sicilianska mannen som fortfarande talar om Sinikka fr?n Finland, Anne fr?n Tyskland eller Lisa fr?n Sverige efter 5, 10 eller 15 ?r och m?nga g?nger fortfarande har k?nslor f?r henne, ?r den nordiska kvinnan troligtvis tillbaka hemma, lever med en man fr?n sitt land, kanske gift med barn och hus, minns vagt vilket ?r hon var p? Sicilien (det var 2001 eller 2003, kan inte minnas), men hon kommer s?kert inte ih?g sicilianska mannens namn och aldrig n?mnt honom till sina v?nner. Det var bara en fling…

Problemet ?r n?r du bor i en turistdestination.
