Western Sicily

Western Sicily. This trip initially focused on Palermo and the surroundings, and then the area to the West, towards Trapani. The idea was to visit well a limited number of places, and we did.

A long weekend was the opportunity of exploring just a bit of […]

Vietnam

Central and Northern Vietnam, from Hoi An to Sapa. These few pictures document the highlights of a two weeks long trip to Vietnam.
