Wild, wild Coast

... Salvatore grows oranges, lemons, figs and onions and we were sent off with a bag of these when we left the next morning..... lovely hospitality. From what we saw, Calabria is like the South Coast in the 80s: sugar cane growing on the side of the road, sea sand on the road, low ugly architecture. In fairness, we didn't go to the beach, but of all the places in Italy, I wouldn't rush back there as I find it ...

Mammola day 2

A travel blog entry by sueesposito

... We had a siesta and then headed to the town. Don bought an espresso and I had a gelato ingliese and creme caramel. We sat with our new friend Nicodemo Agostinos. He had befriended us on FB.

A man coming out of an office said we needed to come back tomorrow to get info on where Don's mum and dad lived in Mammola and where Don's maternal grandmother was buried ...

Mammola day 1

A travel blog entry by sueesposito

We started to walk to the beach but as there was no clear signage we got the car and" found a road down to the brollies and lounge chair area. The sand was red and I took a dip in the Ionian Sea. It was so clear and refreshing. Tonight is the game between Italy and England in the World Cup. We ate a little later and could hear the surrounding houses with ...

Ostuni

A travel blog entry by sueesposito

... lemon tea with milk. Italians make magnificent coffee but tea is a foreign concept. We decided to venture into Ostuni 8 kms away. We had a vision of a small town like Yandina. Think again! It was hectic, busy and parking a logistically nightmare. I used my sign language to ask a shopkeeper if we could park on the street. Not where we were, so she helped us find a park and pointed to the ticket machine. Blue lines you pay, white are free and yellow are ...
