2018-04 Italy – Sicily

Originally my plan was to take my motor home and travel to the Delta of the River Danube in Romania. But I was not sure about opening times of Camping Sites in April and became nervous to explore uncharted territory on my own. Therefore a better known and also very attractive destination got a chance: Sicily. In hindsight I should have taken more time for all sections of the trip: driving down, around the island and back up. I did it in about nine days. 3+3+3…

2011-08 Italia

In the middle of 2011 we were not sure where to go for a holiday. Rather spontaneously we opted for a round trip through the middle of Italy: Apulia – Basilikata – Campania. We flew to Naples and got a rental car and headed eastwards.

Day 6, 22.08.2011

Normally I am too stingy to take a tour guide. In this case the person which approached us was German speaking and quite a nice guy. We had no regrets, the opposite, we would not have gained that amount of insight.

Isola Capri

Capri – Napoli

2006-08 Korfu

There is quite a significant connection between Austria and the Greek island of Korfu: our famous queen of the hearts, Elizabeth called “Sissi” built herself a small palace and spent lots of time around. She was ill from a lunge disease and enjoyed the mild climate.

Here she is, our “Sissi”. The theme of her palace was obviously “Achilles“. His statue is famous amongst insiders and dominates the scene.

Below is one of the best known motives of Korfu: “Island of the mice

2006-06 Rome

In 2006 we travelled to Rome over a long weekend and had a whale of a time 🙂 . We would come back at least twice.
In 2016, 10 years later, Bruno, Heinz and I would take our racing bikes with light luggage and cycle down from Haag in Austria. Rome is a place to come back anyway and enjoy the history, the culture, the fine arts and the life style.
