Motorhoming in Sicily | From Reggio di Calabria to Messina, Sicily

So the Sicilian adventure begins here…. After the short 3.3 mile crossing that took about 25mins (or enough time for a quick breakfast…) we entered the laid back island of Sicily… Well perhaps not quite, after the hectic, horn blasting streets of Messina….Catch up on all our family motorhoming posts for Sicily below

As we headed into the olive laden hills to the North of Messina, the rumbling menace of Stromboli rose into view… a part of the Aeolian Islands that provide picture postcard views off the northern coast of Siciliy, it has a certain menace that was not made any better by the regular ‘dynamiting’ in the local quarries… enough to persuade two little girls that we might need to make a sharp exit!!
But onto Patti, a beautiful, quaint rural idyll off the beaten track some 50km outside of Messina… time to relax at a campsite bedecked with the spring flowers that Sicily is famous for….Can’t wait to see the monastery on the hilltop, or play more on the beach with the girls…. time to even get the bikes out!!!! But first, the bakery blogs… Both girls have been inspired by the variety of foods on this trip, so we have started a 12 part series available here… showcasing authentic foods from our travels (and some extra sweet cakes to keep the van’s stock going….). . See here for more
Both girls can’t wait to get using the Colourworks equipment from KitchenCraft…. matching the quality of the Adria motorhome, it has made all of us smile when the ‘splash of colour’ hits the table (both the cook and eat from…)


so where did we park the bus for the night?

    great post, very informative. I wonder why the other experts of this sector don’t notice this. You should continue your writing. I’m sure, you have a huge readers’ base already!
