Life in Sicily

I absolutely love living in my little town in Sicily! It’s located on the slope of one of the world’s most active volcanoes, Mt. Etna, which means we can often see lava spewing out of its craters.

Two of my favorite things about living here are the beautiful scenery in towns like Taormina and the granita which is a breakfast ice cream.


I’m heartbroken that I’ll be leaving for the states to go to college this summer. However, I’m incredibly thankful to have spent my entire life here, and knowing that I can always come back during school breaks makes moving away a little easier!
