From last night we decided to make our way to Catania. We got a lift from our Airbnb father, it was so sweet, he tried paying for our breakfast hah. Cute.
He dropped us off at the train station where we had to walk down a flight of stairs with our bags and I tell you what, arm and leg day ha!
We got our ticket and went and waited with the other sheep.
Walking on to the boat, it was seriously not what i thought it was going to look like, but it literally took like 10 minutes to get to Sicily from Reggio Calabria, the wind must have been going to right way!
It started raining when we got off the boat and we decided the make a runner to the station. We then got a train from Messina to Catania. Which was very expensive?! 13.50euro?
2.5 hours later we got off the train got a taxi to our hostel and it was very comfortable, the beds we good and the shower was amazing, BUT there was a mistake with the booking and we lost money, but oh well sacrifices.
Having an AMAZZZZINGGGGGGGGGG SHOWER we chilled and did nothing for a bit, then went for a walk to look around and found a bar that was connected to a hostel, ( oh i forgot to mention that we met this dude from Melbourne on the train to Reggio Calabria and he was telling us about this hostel), anyway, so we went to the bar and there was a girl sitting alone and I invited her over to sit with us and she was from Germany and she told us there were a massive street and there are shops and restaurants etc.
We looked on googled it and went for a walk, after coming past such a BEAUTIFUL cathedral we kept walking up and we saw people with H&M bags and got really excited.
I asked someone where it was and we kept walking and there was the magical sign "H & M".
We did a lot of shopping that day and proud.
