Instagram year 2016 coming to an end – and fast it went

On Instagram – Looking back, what a year

A year of surprises it has been.

Looking back, We have down our fair share of discovering new venues and places.

One never knows what he really prefers really. We can’t stand the heat in Africa, then we long for the cold of Europe.

Once we are fedup from the cold, we again long for some warmer weather.

Brings it all to a confusion.

Italy in summer

Needless to say, some of the greatest time we had in Italy this summer. We enjoyed Italian culture and cuisine from Sicily, Noto, Modica, Pozzallo, and much more.

We took lots of video footage on Noto beach, which was a bit polluted, but otherwise the only place, apart from Malta, where I dared to swim in the sea.

Noto is a fantastic city by all standards. And some of the most incredible Italian food I sampled there.

That does not mean, Pulia or Puglia was any worse. In fact, we were invited by the property owners to feast on fresh figs in the gardens, a remarkable experience.

( I added some videos on Puglia on our youtube channel )
( Can’t tell you in simple words how delicious they tasted. )

Calabria we passed before but did not stop. The weather wasn’t too much inviting either, and we longed for Puglia.

Puglia is a region one can’t easily forget. The view is majestic, one can’t over emphasize enough.

It may be compared to Cinque Terra, the Ligurian coast of Italy. I still prefer Puglia. I fell in love with this part of Italy.

Go through our instagram channel and youtube channel to find videos and photography on Puglia.

Finally I want to speak about the marvelous beauty of Toscana ( Tuscany ). After a mere two weeks in the Tuscany we were mesmerized.

Be it the climate, the imaginary coutryside, the history of Siena, Florence, Montalcino, Montepulciano, and the Tuscan wine – one of the best the world has to offer – ( believe me, I know what I am talking about ), Toscana is not without a reason as magnificent as you might have heard.

I am writing this short article for a reason only : To pay tribute to one of the greatest country on earth.

I have covered Venice in my previous posts ( however – thanks to hackers, the posts arelong gone – still the files are with me and in some given time I will repost them. )

But to go back to Tuscany, we discovered our own hot spas, and I submersed in the hot springs daily, using the early morning – sometimes at 06.00 A.M., before the arrival of the large crowds.

I had this incredible feeling, sulfur was good for one skin. More pictures on our instagram.

In fact the whole Italy trip was worth more than all previous trips to this magnificent country.

Will cover some more of Italy in subsequent posts. I apologize for not being able to post all at once.

Watch out for more on Tuscany, Puglia, and more …

( I think the gods must have created this greatest of all European country ). Why after all, our greatest minds, like Sigmund Freud, Goethe, and more, were so drawn to Italy.


They knew why.

Finally, as the year comes to an end, I take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy and prosperous New year.

All the best and see you here soon again.
