I was born in London UK and spent fifteen years in the banking industry before making a move into the world of weddings and events. Fifteen years ago I visited Sicily for the first time after reading an article in a magazine and was immediately seduced by this magical island and its people. Two years later my husband and I bought our Sicilian home in Giardini Naxos, got adopted by many Sicilian families, acquired a Sicilian big brother, made an amazing network of ex-pat friends and became addicted to cannoli. My love for Sicily inspired me to write a Blog called White Almond Sicily sharing travel advice, food tips and living life “The Sicilian Way” writing in a fun and visual way using my own photos to encourage more visitors to the island. I now divide my time between London and Sicily with my husband and our rescue dog Daisy, who embarks on a UK to Sicily road trip twice a year. Daisy loves her Sicilian life and has explored Mount Etna in a defender Jeep, enjoys wine tasting trips, been on the set of Inspector Montalbano, had her photo taken with the character Caterella and is quite the celebrity in Taormina.
