Liliana in 2D is in the cockpit of our virtual plane for this week and I am really looking forward to this journey as she is taking us to two places I would love to go to.

First, she is flying us to Castellamare de Golfo, Sicily in Italy. This is a very special place for Liliana as her Grandfather was born there and her Dad was a child there.

Next, she is jetting us off to Australia and landing in Sydney.

WOW!!!!! What a fantastic trip.

You are finding out the weather for these two places. This can be on the sheets we have made and can be found lower down on this page, or you can write it in a book as your own weather diary.

  • continent it is in;
