Our holiday in Sicily

By 24/10/2013 One Comment

Josh and I went to Sicily on on our holidays at the end of September and I thought I’d share a few photos, just because it’s a beautiful place! It’s worth mentioning that I don’t take my big camera on holiday for loads of reasons; I might lose it, we’ll get delayed at airport security, it might get stolen, it’ll be annoying to carry around all day, I might drop it in the sea, Josh can’t use it so there’ll be no pictures of me etc. etc. But the best reason is that it’s just good to enjoy a new place and experiences without being behind a camera all the time. So these photographs were taken on a Panasonic Lumix point and shoot camera and edited in Lightroom.

We flew into Trapani (on the West Coast of Sicily) and hired an apartment there. This is the beautiful view we woke up to every morning…

Off the coast of Sicily, there are three Egadi Islands – Favignana being the largest one. We hired bikes here and managed to get round the island in a day, stopping off to swim in the coves.

From Trapani, you can take a cable car up to the mountain town of Ericé. It’s an ancient place that once had a Temple of Venus teetering on the mountain side. Ericé also contains an impressive quantity of cats!

We also stumbled across an abandoned church, which was a bit creepy!

I’d love to go back again, so if you’re getting married in Sicily and you need a wedding photographer, I’m your girl!

    Wowsers, this place is gorgeous! That first photo makes my soul happy. And also, who needs a big camera when this is what you do with a point and shoot?
