amalfi coast is just simply beautiful.

Off to Sicily next… Started at Taormina. Took an overnight ferry. Half a day to finish walking the whole city! Went mt etna.. Then gambini winery.. It was nice. Mt etna was freezing… Totally wrong to be in shorts and t shirt… 2900m high. Next diving- went with sea spirit. Did 4 dives.. It was really really beautiful dives.. The underwater landscape.. I vent seen before in Asia. Nice passage ways… Every dive an octopus.. Lotsa baby scorpion fishes.. Fireworks, Sea slug ( that looks like nudi)- dive sites: isola Bella north, south, canyon, roman colonnes. Well.. The colonnes under water.. Erhmm… Nothing compared to those above water.
