HG thank you for one of the best trip reports ever. I read it aloud to my husband on a 2+ hour drive. We laughed a lot and arrived at our destination feeling full! We'll be in Puglia for a week mid-october .. And will make good use of your notes.

ez1- oh thanks so much, that is lovely of you to say- i hope it wasn't too hard with all my typos/italian auto correctness going on!! and glad it helped u and husband on your travels. This is the first time i ever did a trip report as am relatively new to Fordors but i really enjoyed writing it. Not sure my next trip to Paxos will have quite so much to report on

Am sure u will have a lovely time, i have my screen shot on laptop (and home PC) both set to Puglia at the mo and looks so pretty!

I've spent the past two hours devouring your Puglia foodie travelogue and cannot thank you enough for the wonderful details. We are planning a trip to the area in May so I, of course, wrote down your food and restaurant suggestions. However, I've most enjoyed living the trip with you each day. My poor husband thinks he might get dinner tonight, but I've sacrificed this for my virtual trip with you.

So appreciate your details and beautiful foodie writing!

We just booked a week's trip to Puglia in September and oh, did I enjoy reading your report! Just starting to check out places to stay and your descriptions will be a big help.
Thank you, thank you!

My husband and I are traveling to Puglia in March for our 20th anniversary. Thank you SO much for sharing so much. This kept me occupied on a long drive yesterday and I'm taking notes for our trip.

If it was that dead in May, I imagine March will be worse. I comfort myself that it will still be warmer than the Northwest US.

We are especially looking for good olive oil to bring home! And it would be wonderful if we could find someone who we could order from in the future. All the stuff we get here is so disappointing.

We are hoping not to use a car, so glad to hear about train stations as well.

Again, thank you for sharing so faithfully. And your descriptions so detailed I felt full just reading!!!
