The Power of Disctrict-Meetings

During my trip through Italy I could experience something, which made me change the way I see the existence of districts. For the last view years (since I became a LEO)…

Naples and Procida

During the night we had bad thunderstorms and lots of rain. So I started my tour through Naples later than expected. Never mind, it was stunning and I enjoyed walking through all these small little streets and watching (and taking photographs of) people. It’s a paradise for street-photographers.

Horse Meat and Club Meeting

In the evening I was invited to the monthly meeting of the LEO Club Catania which took place in a traditional Trattoria in city center. I had to try this really tasty horse-meat-balls which everyone was talking about. Actually I really enjoyed the specialities we got to eat. Overall, the cuisine in Sicily is amazing!

Catania

After having breakfast on the rooftop terrace of my B&B I got the chance to see a wonderful beach a bit outside of the town. We were having some great fun and for sure a swim in the sea there. For lunch we went for lunch where I had to try this “granite” things, lovely tasting brioche with sort of chilled fruits.

Massafra – Catania

Massafra – Catania

After just a few hours of sleep Luigi and Annalisa took me to the train station in Massafra, so I could take the train to Taranto, Salerno and further to Catania. In sum it was a beautiful 13 hours train-trip through the beauty of southern Italy.

36th Charter Night LEO Club Taranto

In the evening I was invited to the 36th Charter Night of LEO Club Taranto. Taranto is around 30km away from Massafra and as far I could see a wonderful town, influenced by north african styles. I really need to come back there one day. A charter night is the official start into a new LEO year, presidents and teams change their chairs and new members will be received to the club.

Crypts, Stairs and Food

What happened so so far today: In the morning I was taken to see the world famous crypts, the historic center of Massafra, the castle and afterwards attend some delicious lunch at a LEO members place. I think you should just watch and enjoy the images.

Let the story begin, Wels – Massafra

Well, this day I spent on a train, sitting and trying to get some sleep after a sleepness night. So this 16 hrs ride was pretty short. Reaching the connection trains in Salzburg, Innsbruck, Bologna and Bari was also really easy and I never had to wait longer than 10 Minutes.

I am actually pretty nervous about my first official “The LEO Book”-trip. Especially because I don’t know what will happen and how everything will develop. I spent over 1 1/2…
