Sicily, Matera, and the Zona di Trulli

We arrived to the island of Sicily in Messina.  We stopped for groceries as we planned to camp tonight. We had first though to just go the 28 Km to the first camp place, but decided to press on. It actually took over 2 hours in traffic to get the 62 km to the...

Holland

Germany

Germany

08-1991 Few countries in Western Europe have such a fascinating yet complicated past as Germany. Much of its history is easily explored by any visitor today. As you can understand from the date, this was way back. I was really young and I visited Germany with my...
