I am struggling with this notion currently. And, I thought I'd take a moment to remind myself that there really is no destination.⠀
The pandemic woes are monumental for me right now. My 'normal' way of traveling through life is unavailable at the moment. ⠀
How is everyone holding up? How are you traveling 'well'? I could use a boost in spirit right about now. ⠀
Thank you - xoxo Jack
Caltagirone is a city well know for its wonderful Ceramic tradition:
Ceramics of Caltagirone:
The XV-XVII centuries are considered the golden age of “The City of Ceramics” that is embellished with churches, institutes, colleges and convents. Along with the Jesuits comes the first University which offers lectures of jurisprudence, philosophy and medicine and a new, important hospital, the best of the island, is built in the town.
In 1693 a catastrophic earthquake destroys Caltagirone and many other villages in the Val di Noto: a huge tragedy that kills about 100 thousand people.
With the city’s reconstruction also the ceramic art lives again with new, artistic impulses. The artisans’ ovens churn out vases, fonts, sinks, frontals, statues, architectural decorations for churches, bell towers and houses, small and large tiles.

The Muscat Clock Tower in MBD, Ruwi is the oldest monument in modern Oman and showcases the Sultanate’s commitment to modernization,”
Years ago, most people did not have watches, and prior to the 18th century even home clocks were rare. The first clocks didn’t have faces, but were solely striking clocks, which sounded bells to call the surrounding community to work or to prayer. These clocks were therefore placed in towers so the bells would be audible even from far distances.
Mediterranean memories ⛱. A very last minute change to our Italy itinerary landed us here in this beautiful place. Sicily was never in our original plans for this trip. We were supposed to be heading to Tuscany but the weather forecast was pretty grim a few days out so we changed our plans to chase the sun down south. We checked into our hotel, made a beeline for the sea and just looked at each other as we reclined on our sun loungers super chuffed with our decision. ☀️😁
