August is the holiday month in Italy. CROWDED!

Here in the island Favignana, some 10 miles outside Trapani, west Sicily

Searching for the buildings from the lovely movie “Cinema Paradiso” in the Sicilian city Bagheira,
but found only these funny figures:

Sardinia to Sicily, 170 miles, 38 hours

A very nice airshow the day before we left Sardinia, probably not because we should leave.

A beautiful trip to Trapani, Sicily, where we at once felt at home in the fantastic fish and fruit/veggie markets to nearly half prices compared to Sardinia. And even more friendly, relaxed and human people. Without going too deep what a big difference it is between these two islands, belonging to the same country!
