Tuesday 23rd Dec - I know I'm getting a little repetitive, but ever since I saw this place on a TV program I have wanted to visit it in real life, so this was our chance as its only a short train trip from Bari.

... are a lot of olive trees round here and many white buildings. The trulli buildings are cone shaped and look very cute. It is nice and quiet here and we have our own kitchen again which is wonderful. We set out and did some shopping at the Conad supermarket and tonight we cooked at home – yeh. Pasta and salad – only one course – portion sizes we wanted. We really loved being with relatives but it is nice to be on our own ...
