Fly with Me
I thought this photo was appropriate for the New Year—these studs checking out the winds and getting a gauge on the conditions. I ran across it recently when going through photos for a presentation on Italian wines.
There are so many places where I would love to travel with my parents. Sicily is one of these places. While planning a business trip a few years ago, I found Masseria Rossella, a cozy little agritorismo about an hour outside of Palermo in the area of Piana degli Albanesi.
The woman I was traveling with and I used it as a base while we explored the area around Palermo, including day trips to Erice and Sambuca.
The location is gorgeous and quiet, with a small pool and beautiful bucolic vistas. It is the sort of place to disconnect from your cell and internet for a while.
If you want some excitement, you can sign up to go paragliding with Adriano Patti at the Accademia Siciliana Volo Libero Scuola Nazionale Parapendio
