𝙳𝙴𝚂𝙲𝚁𝙸𝙿𝚃𝙸𝙾𝙽: Isola Bella is a small island near Taormina, Sicily, southern Italy.
Also known as The Pearl of the Ionian Sea, it is located within a small bay on the Ionian Sea; it was a private property owned by Florence Trevelyan until 1990, when it was bought by the Region of Sicily, being turned into a nature reserve, administrated by the Italian branch of the World Wide Fund for Nature. There is a narrow path that often connects the island to the mainland beach.
The island is surrounded by sea grottos and has a small and rather rocky beach which is a popular destination for sunbathers.
Taormina is a comune(municipality) in the Metropolitan City of Messina, on the east coast of the island of Sicily, Italy.
Taormina has been a tourist destination since the 19th century.
Its beaches on the Ionian sea, including that of Isola Bella, are accessible via an aerial tramway built in 1992, and via highways from Messina in the north and Catania in the south.
On May 26–27, 2017 Taormina hosted the 43rd G7 summit.
I can lie here all day long just watching and enjoying the relaxing sound of the waterfall. Something about chasing waterfalls.

I'm sure most of the People in Kenya are aware of the massive landslides that have been experienced in the West Pokot region. More than 50 people have died and many more still missing. Close to 100K people have been displaced and will need relocation.
The events of the last few days have been both tragic and unfortunate. My condolences to the families that have lost loved ones in the landslides and floods.
About six months ago, I went hiking in the mountainous region of West Pokot County, Kenya. It was one of the most toughest and challenging hikes that I'd ever done mostly because of the terrain. The region is certainly among the most beautiful and spectacular places in Kenya.
While exploring the area, I was shocked by the level of deforestation. What used to be Forest cover has been reduced to bare land as evident in the above images. Humans have established farms and homesteads in steep sloppy areas of the mountains, some nearly vertical. If you can see the white spots, those are homes and storage facilities with the large brown areas being the farms.
According to the locals, there is limited land for agriculture and for settlement. It is shocking to note that more than fifty percent of the County's population live precariously like this. Unless something drastic is done to address the issue, people's lives will continue to be at risk more so from landslides, mudslides, flash floods, rock falls, creeps and other forms of land mass movements. Of most importance is Education on the importance of Forests. The other being the dangers of farming and living on steep slopes.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Let it go. 😉 Let go of summer dreaming, toes in the sand, salty hair. It will come again. Now embrace the cold, because, as you can see, it can be also very beautiful. The Soča valley can be a frozen kingdom in this part of the year. 💙
Headed for the South American country of Chile? The Catedral de Marmol in Puerto Rio Tranquilo should be on your list. Its natural limestone formations and caves are absolutely worth the about an hour boat ride. #seeqr#seeqrtravel
