here are a few (ok, more than a few) photos from our time in sicily (i posted a few while we were there, too.) josh was a missionary for 2 years for our church in southern italy ten years ago, so it was extra special to get to see all the little towns and places where he lived. we spent a little time in gela, palma di montechiaro, ragusa and syracusa (my favorite!) southern italy had such a different vibe and feel compared to the north where we spent the second week of our trip. it was very laid back, and josh says not much had changed at all since he lived there ten years ago. i really loved it. the views were so beautiful. the food was delicious. the people were the sweetest. it is most certainly a very special place.
