Off we go! This was taken on the first (of three) flights! We hadn't lost the last flight yet, since we were put on the wrong connection flight! Is traveling EVER easy?
We were just happy to be in Italy at this point, and awaiting a flight I secured for us with my broken Italian in order to make it to our final destination. Palermo, Sicily :)
A few pics from our first night in Palermo, where my cousin Gerry (pictured in the cover photo) took us to get some HUGE rice balls, a Sicilian specialty!
This man is the reason my mother came to the United States, where she would meet my father (also from Italy, but from another part of the country) get married, and have my brother and I! Thanks, Zio Filippo! He is now retired and enjoys a home at the beach in Sicily half the year with his lovely wife.
Some of my favorites from our day of sight seeing in Palermo. I love that city.
More Palermo! We all had a great time. It's also great to be back in the States!
