As I was in Brindisi two weeks ago, I spent the weekend discovering Puglia, the South-Eastern tip of Italy, driving around the "heel of the Italian boot".
This part of the country, filled with vineyards and olive tree farms is more or less left aside by international tourists, even tough it features an unspoiled nature, sand beaches as well a rocky coastline dotted with cliffs. While in the summer this region must be scorched by the sun, this time of the year, the temperature is just right.
Many parts of Puglia either remind me of the Balkans, or of Greece. Exotic enough to make one dream.
