Who I’m 2017-12-23T18:57:44+00:00

Here’s in  brief the history of my life:

I’m Angela  and I was born and bred  some years in Novara ( Piemonte). Then my parents decided to get back to Sicily and I grew up on a   small mountain village in the Madonie park : Polizzi Generosa . Nothing incredibly exciting happened there and for this reason I decided to move in an other city where I  live happily: Cefalù . A  beautiful medieval town,  included in  the World Heritage List in 2015 I was a smart girl  in school and I loved to learn . I like music and books , animals , dance and most of all to know people and get in touch with the real soul of a place.
I also love photography , gelato and writing . And naturally  I like to travel and everything it’s in between.
I have a wonderful family with 2 beautiful sisters and now 2 handsome brothers in law and 2 adorable and amazing nephews.
It was in high school that I decided the travel world  became my work  and at the age of 24  I quit my University  to follow my dreams of traveling the world and building my own business .
It all seemed crazy, especially because I was young and not rich — but instead of pursuing a standard career, I  wanted to set my sights on becoming a permanent traveler and a perfect connoisseur of my island ! It certainly wasn’t easy, and it took some time, but I eventually got there. With a ton of hard work and determination, as well as the idea  of  the achievement of my goals, I managed, piece by piece, to create my actual success.
Today, I am a successful Travel agent or.. as I love to describe  myself : a travel designer  living a not static  life style. And I love my agency : Sicily by Experts
Visit my web syte  www.sicilybyexperts.it and if you need to reserve a particular tour write to my team.

My wonderful family : my mother and father , my sisters , my brothers’ in law and my little nephiew ( in this one there is no the picture of my niece..)

Some curiosities about me
I’m not a full-time traveler though  .  In fact,  mostly of my time I work  in my agency and in a hotel  . As much as I love traveling and having adventures, I also enjoy coming home to sleep in my own bed, cuddle  my kitty and my little chihuahua and chat with my friends .
One of my past jobs when I was young  consisted of serve in a restaurant.
I love the scent of home food ( mama’s food is my preferite)
Spring   and the months of june and september is my favorite time of year.
I took caribbean Dancing lessons some years ago and still now I love to go dancing with my friends .
My favorite color is blue
I love glamourous things ..
and I’m an incredible romantic person

I work on this blog part-time and do some freelance writing  – when I’m not globe trotting or I’m not at my office.
I’ve visited lot of countries so far and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon, because I have still lot to see ..
Traveling can be sort of magical. It’s unpredictable and beautiful and sometimes downright confusing. But that’s the beauty of it — you never really know what to expect when you pack that bag and leave home behind. They are  the reasons why I’m still traveling today.
In all places I go my preferred mode of travel involves staying at charming  hotels, because I like “glamour things “. Sometimes I travel solo and other times my boyfriend comes with me.
I appreciate  delicious  food and good wine  – and if they’re served alongside a beautiful view, that’s even better.
I also love being outdoors and spend a lot of time walking when I’m in a new destination.

Mama while cooking – one of my exibition during the caribbean dance’s lessons – I have always something blue with me – my 2 little love :  the queen of the house Mrs JLO  ( the cat)   and my cute little Attila ( the dog)

What’s “Sicily in my pocket”  about?
I created this blog as a project to share my tremendous passion ,enthusiasm and knowledge for Sicily
In the vast ocean that is the blogosphere, I wanted to stand out and  inject a little magic that’s mine alone ,  about my Sicily. A Sicily storytelled .. a Relational Sicily .. a Sicily full of real experiences.
“I’m on a mission to show the authentic, relational, experiential side of my island and the places I will visit around the world.  I write for people that are looking for  the most intriguous things and charming places and want to discover the soul of a place ..I love  sharing  travel stories and advice based upon my personal experiences about  this beautiful and charming Mediterranean island and also aroud the world.
Generally  , I prefer to focus on the human interactions and the life lessons learned along the way, both of which are, in my opinion, the most valuable aspects of a  travel.
In this blog , I chat about amazing meals  I’ve had in nice restaurants  and share pics of beautiful hotels that I’ve been lucky enough to stay in or wonderfull places I have seen . I also share outfit posts, style inspiration and  my latest beauty favourites ,  special events and weddings ideas.
In all posts , I just want to dig deeper into what is that turns me on during a tour or a visit , and – this is my key! – When I visit and write I visualise myself  having the same impact on my ‘follower,’ because  Words have vibrations and can inspire people.

Some of my clients … clients that become friends … the relational side of my work .. I love My work and naturally I LOVE SICILY

With this blog , I plan to accomplish these goals :
> Inspiring people through my personal adventures and discoveries
> Sharing my  information-packed articles that will revolve around travel , restaurants, hotels,  recommendations, and tips
> Showing  the best types of experiences you can have  in my island and also around the world  and that will help any kind of traveler in planning a memorable getaway  travel

When  people  read my words I should like they feel  Inspired, Informed,  Intrigued.
I have myriad places I haven’t yet been to , that I  would love to visit (if I get the chance someday)  and I promise that every place I will visit I will post tips and advices at the same manner I do with Sicily.
I hope my blog can encourage and inspire others to discover this amazing and enchanting Island , which offers a wealth of attractions  and activities for people of all ages and backgrounds and most of all … that let my followers come back home with the feeling that they  have been ” sicilian” for a while.

I love to hear from readers! So.. be in touch .. write me .. comment on my posts..
