Greek Theatre – Taormina, Sicily
The Greek Theatre in Taormina, is the second largest ancient theatre in Sicily. This photo was taken in 2005, when I traveled to Europe and fell in love.
It amazes me that Sicily wasn’t even on my agenda when I planned my European adventure, but part of the allure of travel is being able to make decisions at the spur of the moment. I met up with an acquaintance in Rome who insisted I visit his dear friend, and owner of a local bar, in Taormina.
Little did I know, I had just procured my own personal Sicilian tour guide. The next week I spent in Sicily is one of the highlights of my two months in Europe. I was introduced to the locals by a local who knew everyone and in turn made lifelong friends with whom I still keep in contact.
This was exactly what I needed at this time in my life. I was going through a divorce back at home in the states. Serendipity took over in Sicily and reminded me how much I love travel and how life can surprise you when you least expect it.
You are probably wondering who I fell in love with while in Sicily. The truth is that I fell in love with Taormina and have dreamed of returning ever since. There were a couple Sicilian boys who I was fond of, but ultimately, Taormina seduced me with its beautiful architecture, breathtaking landscapes and amazing people. Whenever I see this photo of the Greek Theatre, I am reminded of the friends I made and the time I spent in this magical town.
