This "On my way " was part of the journey from England to Malta ,by train and
ferry. From my home city to Palermo is about 1895 miles. Palermo and Catania are
on the island of Sicily, which is part of Italy. I travelled from Rome on the mainland by
night train taking about 10 hours . At the Straits of Messina , the train carriages board the
Schiff [ ferry] . Sailing was about 20 minutes. The straits are about 3.2 km [ nearly 2 miles ] The carriages disembark at Messina ,then
on to Palermo . I stayed 2 nights in Palermo, before moving on by train to Catania , about 3 hours. ----------Catania
is situated at the foot of Mount Etna. I stayed one night in a hotel. The fast ferry
for Malta goes from Pozzallo. On the walk to ferry point the road was boring and
i started to wonder if i was on the right way. I saw a Police Office, i entered the
office and asked if i was on the correct road for the ferry. The policeman's english
was as good as my italian . Nil . -- He left the room and came back with a Police car driver. who
took me in the Police car to the ferry point. -- On my return journey from Malta there was a bus to the rail
station. Pozzallo to Rome by train is 14 hours by night train. ----- I could fly by
airplane, but train and ferry and Police Car is more interesting. -------SICILY,  PALERMO. --  Monte  Pellergrino.
