Sicilian Countryside

Driving across the Italian countryside, on our way to Palazzo Adriano, I felt captivated by the rolling green landscape. Each twist and turn in the road brought a fresh set of mountains, buildings with architecture I had never seen, and even animals roaming the land. At one turn, we encountered donkeys grazing on the hillside. Noting the American girls' fascinating, the driver pulled over and happily allowed us to exit the bus to take photos. This experience may have been normal for him, yet meant so much to us. Simply walking along the grass and taking in the scene was a refreshing moment that reminded us all what an adventure it is to travel.
