I definitely wasn’t expecting I was going to be covered in a mixture of capers, olive oil and sea salt, scrubbed and massaged for over 1 hour, that day, and it’s an experience that still makes me smile when I think back of it. My skin was glowing and so soft, for days after the treatment. And I loved the smell! The capers of Salina are worldwide famous and coming to this tiny island and having this specific scrub treatment felt luxurious, special and unique.
When you go to Aci Trezza and take a walk along the coast, looking at the stacks (Faraglioni) will create this evocative atmosphere, making the visit more special and unforgettable.
Also, did I mention there is a Jacuzzi plunge pool on the rooftop? So even when the sun is shining… you can still stay in. Never leave. Oh no why did I leave?
(Grand Hotel Arciduca – I will be back!)
The idea is to disconnect from reality a bit, rest and relax, climb as many volcanoes as I can (weather permitting) and if possible come back home with some kick-ass photos and memories to cherish forever. Lava? I love lava! Bring on the lava!
The first time I went to a Gay Pride parade it was in NYC 2009. Just 4 years ago, but things inside my mind have changed a lot ever since, on the topic too.
