REFLECTIONS ON THE WEEK
The Discover Sicily itinerary really does catapult you into such an array of experiences from ancient Roman and Greek treasures, to the stripped back simplicity of time at the beach, or a stop off for gelato.
But while this might be something you could just as easily enjoy back home, when you’re on holiday, there is something much more charming about it. I for one, feel so much more in the moment, soaking up the atmosphere, and taking nothing for granted like you might when you’re back at home. And of course, there are the new people you meet along the way to share it all with which can’t be underestimated.
It was never something that was really on my radar, but I have fallen in love with Sicily and am so glad that I’ve discovered it. It’s so beautiful, the architecture, the history, the people, the food – everything about it is just brilliant.
SOMETHING NEW WITH JUST YOU
I’ve always thought that I’d ticked off a lot of Europe in the past, but it’s always different on a Just You tour. You seem to find things you never knew were there or existed since you last visited, or simply see things with different eyes, so I would say never write off something that you think you’ve done before, there’s always something new to unwrap.
I’d love to venture further afield next and do a bit of long-haul travel with Just You – Vietnam, Argentina, Chile and Brazil all look pretty spectacular, but we’ll see what’s next!
