A Mediterranean Paradise

It might be fair to say that you've never heard of the island of Lampedusa. Located about an 8 hour ferry ride south of Sicily, Lampedusa is technically the southernmost point in Italy. The island is southwest of Malta and is actually closer to Tunisia than the Italian mainland. Still Lampedusa is supposed to be a wonderful island - surrounded by stunning crystalline waters, gorgeous beaches and made up of a rugged landscape.

One of my uncles has a house in Lampedusa - admittedly, I've never been there. I've always thought of it as his secret getaway that he uses in the summertime. One of these days, we'll have to visit. In the meantime, here is a nine minute video I found on YouTube that provides a glimpse into life and culture on this gorgeous island.
