29 May For the Love of Italy… Brindisi is My (Next) Destination
I spent a decent amount of time traveling overseas during the last couple of years, and every time I come back to my country, Italy, I marvel at its beauty.

Traveling in totally different contexts not only makes me feel richer, it also reminds me of how wonderful is the land I come from.
Italy was blessed with a unique blend of superb landscapes, stunning works of art and architecture, an amazing heritage and an incredible diversity, but the truth is that I sometimes take all this for granted, not paying the right attention anymore.
As strange as it may sound, I had never properly visited Turin until last year, despite it is a mere 150 km from Milan. I found the city gorgeous and definitely want to go back to see more of it.
Then there was the Molise region, wild and beautiful, widely unknown and definitely an off-beaten destination in Italy.
The wish to explore more of my country has grown stronger, thus the invitation for a trip to discover Brindisi draw a smile on my face. Another city I haven’t been, another region – Puglia – I never visited. And one more step into the endless charm and variety of Italy.
Brindisi, another piece of Italy to discover, and certainly to love
This is why – I guess – the journey is starting in Brindisi and finishing in Corfu, the lovely Greek island in the Ionian Sea.
A thrilling experience since we’ll reach Greece on board of one of the sailing boats participating to the Brindisi-Corfu regatta during which we will be, er… part of the crew.
Can you imagine 9 bloggers as the crew on a racing sailing boat?
Brindisi and the surrounding area offer so much that there will be plenty to write and share about: the Wine Festival, the superb food (I can’t wait to eat one of my favorite dishes: orechiette alla pugliese), a bike tour in the countryside, a stroll along Guna Beach, one of the best – from what I read – in the Salento Area. And much more.
From June 7th, 2013 to June 16th, 2013, you can discover Brindisi with me and the other awesome travel writers, photographers ,and video-makers invited on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and Pinterest.
Coming June, Brindisi is My (Next) Destination. Hope it will be yours as well.
