... to see just how beautiful this place really is. There are views straight out of postcards everywhere and the sea was perfectly clear and turquoise blue, it really was a place right from my dreams. The only downside was the whipping wind, but I can only imagine how perfect a destination this would be in the Summer.
The town was so cute, too. If you picture an Italian village where everyone knows each other, everyone is yelling, the families ...

The food from here is called Cucina Povera meaning something like peasant food. It's good wholesome food. In demand now. Back in Martina Franca and I love the old area.

Look like fairy houses, or hobbit houses. They're everywhere. Beautiful countryside. It's still raining when the train arrives in MF ...
... up and down the street of houses many have been turned into tourist shops with food, wine, ornaments & local crafts. Away from these main streets you have the opportunity to walk past many that are private residents, while walking past the houses it's easy to think an Oompa Loompa or elf might pop his head out the door to say hello.
Alberobello - which actually means "beautiful tree" in Italian, is a truly remarkable place to see, I'm so glad we had the chance. ...
