Pantelleria ’08

Last week we followed the invitation of Simon, a friend of ours, and went for a one-week holiday to Pantelleria, an island in the Strait of Sicily in the Mediterranean Sea 100 km (62 mi) southwest of Sicily and just 70 km (43 mi) east of the African coast. The island is entirely of volcanic origin, and 117 km/2 (45 mi/2) in area. Hot mineral springs and fumaroles still testify a quiescent volcanic activity. The island is fertile, but lacks fresh water.

Simon’s family owns a beautiful country house nearby the sea where we stayed with some more friends. Throughout the week we had a great mix of relaxation, fun, good food, a lot of sun, diving, sulphur bath with fango treatment and motorboat action. I think everybody enjoyed it a lot and defiantly Lola had great fun with everybody and everything.
