Flickr favourites

As I impatiently fill in the time till our Sicily trip I’ve been reviewing some of my former favourite trips with a trip down my Flickr memory lane!

Just incase you’ve not noticed – I have a tiny bit of a photography obsession . . . .

So of course I have a Flickr account and of course it is full of peeling paint, doors and cats . . .

You can check out my Flickr account (if you haven’t already had your fill of my endless photos) here.

The latest additions are of a recent trip to Whitby and Flamborough head on the East coast.

Here’s another view of the delightful decrepit boat pulled up off the beach on Flamborough Head.


Then it’s over to Whitby for a saunter around the harbour, chips by the sea and the ramshackle back streets thronged with tourists.

The imposing Abbey looms large over the town, still as ominous as it was in Bram Stokers Dracula.

And it wouldn’t be a trip to Whitby without a visit to the last kipper smokers in the town. . .sadly it was shut however.


Planning planning!

It’s been a while since I put fingers to keyboard as I’ve been having a break from travelling to look after my lovely mum who’s been in hospital for quite a while.

But she’s home and on the mend now so I can start to plan the next adventure!!

After lots of deliberation we’ve decided to head back to one of our favourite parts of the world – Italy! This time in the guise of the island of Sicily.

Heading first to Palermo we’re then crossing the country to Catania where we’ll be based for a few days to explore the East coast.

Having read a fair bit online about the Mafia and the level of pockpockets and street crime on the island I must admit I’m a little apprehensive, but watch this space!

I’m sure there’ll be plenty to report back in a few weeks . . .
