My Not So Secret Love Affair...



Last week I took off without my husband for three days to visit one of my other loves and it was fabulous.


Ok, that’s about as scandalous as it gets. Yet I really am falling in love with another part of Italy. It’s even creeping up on my reliable, faithful Sicily. It’s name is Puglia, otherwise known as Apulia stateside.


The "Road" to Paradise???


Puglia has it all: culture, deep rooted history (including the olive trees ha!), breathtaking beauty, interesting cuisine, up and coming wines, gorgeous architecture, top-notch hotels, plenty of activities to keep the restless happy, enough white sand beaches and turquoise blue waters to keep the mellow, well mellow, and even a touch of sophistication!

I’m going to be writing more about my beloved Puglia in the near future and am planning some terrific vacations for clients down there, so stay tuned for more on this sultry and seductive love affair (although I’ll be taking my husband with me next time!)...

Hi Megan .. I am glad that you are writing about Puglia.. I wanted to go there, but for the first time I felt unsure about the place.. don't ask me why, any other area of Italy I was ok with .. I look forward to more details :-)

I've been really interested in Puglia too, but have yet to go...the Trulli are what really piqued my interest I think!

We spent a week in Peschici on the Gargano peninsula in 2006, in an apartment here: http://www.peschicivacanze.it/index.php
I loved it and hope to return to see more of Puglia.
Saturday I found a bottle of wine from Puglia for $7 at Costco and it is fabulous~!
Enjoying your blog from cold, rainy Oregon!
