Roughly our trip.

We began our adventure on Friday June 2nd at 8:30 am and went to pick up a dear friend. Who is 7 months pregnant and her 3 year old daughter, and off we went, on a 5 day adventure.

It looks southern Italy it is!

We first were going to go to France but then the weather said there would be strange storms. So then we decided on going to the alps in northern Italy to see the lakes, but he storms were there to. So we decided to go to southern Italy and hit the beaches.

If we are going to Puglia, we need to stop and get some really fresh cheeses!

Run, the sun is gone and it might rain!!! Just our luck. Is it me or does that cloud formation look like a Pig Head?

The sun went behind the clouds and our water time was cut short. Our first day consisted of traveling, after the 1hr on the beach we had dinner and went to bed with BIG PLANS for the morning….


Day 2

We woke up to rain. UGH! So during breakfast we made a new plan and decided to leave and go even more south. We had friend who happened to be vacationing down in Torre San Giovanni, so we told her we will be there by supper.

That is some gorgeous water. This coastline is called “The Maldive of Salento”

Salento is the whole heel of the Italian boot, I have fallen in love with this place.

The wine in this area is called, Primitivio di Mandurea and it’s delicious….. The beaches are called “ Le Maldive del Salento”…… I don’t think I could live here but can keep coming back for vacations… The food is Good… Nightlife exists …..Beaches are of Dreamy…. The People are kind and friendly….

We stayed only 3 hrs had lunch in the camper,then we were off to Leuca, to find a boat that would take us to visit the caves tucked along the shoreline.

We found the perfect place with an amazing story.

I don’t know how we found this place on this dead end road but it was perfect.

This is Rocco, he came out and told us our camper is safe there because it’s a place of miracles.

The Story.

15 years ago, Rocco was doing his job of pruning olive trees. He came to this property, Parked his truck across the street and began to prune. For some reason his truck slipped out of gear and began to roll towards his across the street. As he turned to process what he was seeing the truck pinned him against this very olive tree, mind you this particular stretch of road is very steep and is also a dead end so the hopes of someone coming was slim…. Rocco was stuck and he could not see a way out of this horrible situation. All of the sudden he saw the Madonna, she came to him and gave him peace and told him she would take care of him. After 6 hours a car passed and stopped to help him and he was saved. When Rocco got out of the hospital he went back to this very spot and made a shrine to the madonna and has ever since dedicated his life to her and his living grave. He showed us some of his work, to me it kind of has a Salvador Dali feel to it. Below are some photos.

Goats, I guess they are heading home too, trying to beat the bus that travelled all the way from South Wales. LOL

Well we polished off another camper adventure, I truly hope you enjoyed it. If you need any information at all on any of the places we stayed please don’t hesitate to ask. This is a part of Italy that is a must see as well and it’s off the beaten path of tourists.
