Photos from Mt. Etna!

Ty and me at the Greek ampitheatre in Taormina

I’m busy writing, writing, writing right now, so today’s blog post is just to lead you to a bunch of super fun photos!

Mt. Etna erupted this past Monday, August 1st. Mt. Etna is in Sicily, Italy. It blows my mind because, even though it is one of the most active volcanoes in the world, I was walking around it just a few months ago, when I took a holiday to Sicily with my all my big guys this past spring.

It was such a wonderful trip. Besides excellent family and tourist time, my new book A Dark Sicilian Secret takes place in Sicily so there was a lot of research, too. I find Sicily a perfect romantic setting…

Be sure to see my photos from when we visited Mt. Etna.

Also take a look at my photos from my time in the resort town of Taormina, Sicily! So beautiful!

  13. I loved seeing your pictures. My son and his wife honeymooned in Italy and Sicily this past May. So romantic! They hiked the Amalfi coast, visited the Blue Cove, the city pf lemons, and hiked up north in the Dolomites.

    We loved visiting vicariously through their pictures!

    I hope you discovered lots of material for future books.

  14. I visited Mt. Etna a few times when we were living in Sicily because of my Dad’s job, but I was little and barely remember it. Nice pictures. It must have been a beautiful trip.

  15. Great Photos! As always!
    You two are such a cute couple!

    Someday we will make it to Italy!

    Thanks for sharing Jane! 🙂

  16. I forgot to mention I clicked on the link you have for Mt. Etna, the pictures were amazing and beautiful.
    I also think about safety for people and wildlife.
    It would be scary to be visiting during that time.

    Timing is everything!
    Have a great week! 🙂
