Karen Lost in Sicilia piazza Photo from Lost in Sicilia


I’m heading south in Italy this week to give a big Sunday Shout-out to a new friend and fellow blogger Karen at Lost in Sicilia. While her blog title suggests otherwise, we know from Karen’s fun and informative posts that she lives lives near Aci Castello just north of Catania in Sicily. What a lovely place to be lost in! I would just love to hop on a boat from Naples to Catania and meet Karen and her charming son for a stroll around one of the lovely piazzas in Aci Castello.


Karen from Lost in Sicilia


Karen is an art conservator specializing in archaeological objects conservation, and her passion for art, architecture and history makes Lost in Sicilia one of my favorite regular reads. I have also learned a lot about life in Sicily, which is not far from the Amalfi Coast and yet has so many customs, traditions and foods that are different from here. Head over to Lost in Sicilia and you will find yourself lost in dreams of sunny Sicily. Many thanks to Karen for sharing photos and stories about her beautiful city and life in Sicily!
