Palermo, Sicily ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น ______________________________ Ticked off a bucket list item last weekend by going to see @palermocalcioit at the stunning Stadio Renza Barbara. Anyone who has ever played @footballmanager will understand the love you can gain for a team you would otherwise have no connection to. I played as Palermo every year and promised Iโ€™d go see them play live one day. Finally made it last weekend for my birthday to see the home game vs Cessna #forzapalermo ______________________________ #palermo #sicily #italy #serieb #football #bucketlist #travel #pink #adventure #latergram #birthday #dream #sonya6000 #sonyalpha #fifa #vscocam #vsco #love #team #instalike #instagood #mountain #weekend #holiday #shadow #stadium #sport

Taormina, Sicily ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น ______________________________ One of the must-sees in Taormina is the ancient Teatro Greco, built in the 3rd Century BCE. For Archaeology buffs - noticed itโ€™s mostly built from bricks, which is not very โ€œGreekโ€. I am told most of the theatre is actually from the roman phase #nerdlife The theatre was built facing into a panoramic view which includes Mount Etna _______________________________ #taormina #teatrogreco #sicily #italy #mediterranean #sun #travel #architecture #archaeology #history #culture #bbctravel #sonyalpha #sonya6000 #vsco #vscocam #weekend #holiday #etna #blue #beach #mountains #instalike #instagood #love #latergram #tree #clouds

Isola Bella, Sicily ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น _______________________________ The beautiful Isola Bella is known as the pearl of the Ionian Sea.

Freetown, Sierra Leone ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฑ _________________________________ Weโ€™ve been working on repairing this sea wall since it was washed away during serious flooding in 2015. Work finally got underway in January this year when low and behold this โ€˜beastโ€™ of a ship arrives to moor just off the coast where our project is happening. This is a power station on a ship!?! which is muted to be bringing power to parts of Freetown for up to 5 years whilst a new power station is built. Thankfully we only lost 2 days on site while the massive cables were hoisted over the site __________________________________ #freetown #sierraleone #africa #ocean #construction #technology #sonya6000 #sonyalpha #landscape #thisisafrica #visiterlafrique #checkoutafrica #travel #westafrica #conservation #sky #instagood #instalike #bbctravel #natgeo #tbt #adventure #uk #ship #caterpillar #engineering
