This picture was taken in Sicily Italy near Mount Etna. I'm not sure of the exact location. This was one of my favorite trips while abroad in Europe in 2008. Sicily is beautiful. It has such a diverse and rich culture. There is so much history here. The landscape, as you can see, was magical. I felt so free here. This was one of my last trips in Europe and we went out with a bang! Culture, cuisine, passion, history, PEOPLE- an education that cannot be matched in the classroom!
