Pantelleria: Hugged by an Island

Is it possible to feel hugged by an island?? Is it possible that I may have stumbled on the most wonderful souls on the planet??  I just returned from the amazing island of Pantelleria in the sea south of Sicily.  I am brimming with excitement to share my adventures from this wonderful slice of paradiso. The people of this island are quite possibly the warmest souls in Italy. I have returned with my bagagli brimming with gifts, my notebook filled with recipes, my camera filled with amazing images and my heart filled with warmth for these wonderful, wonderful people.  How I can’t wait to share these travels (from hair-raising driving adventures to a sighting of Giorgio Armani) and recipes (from mouth-watering ravioli stuffed with local creamy ricotta and mint to Arab-inspired couscous dishes) – but first I must finish our tour of wonderful Sardegna!
