Salento vacation

San Pietro in Bevagna, summer 2011

I am still having some Blogger problems, but at least I realised that it is the browser problem related to Firefox, so thanks to Safari, I am able to be back to the blogland:)

San Pietro in Bevagna, Italy, 2011.

After just one week, it seems like we 've been there in some sort of other life, away from reality. Salento region of Puglia is one of the most beautiful regions of Italy, (the heel of the Italian boot) , just along the Ionian sea with beautiful sandy beaches and gorgeous architecture. Long sandy beaches are not among my favourite choices ( I am more pebbles and rocks person) regarding the sea cost, but it was fantastic for kids. The water was really so clean and looking in the crystal water under the sun, spoting the little fishes hunting under the water and the rainbowish reflections on the water, was sort of the inexplicable perfection.
San Pietro in Bevagna, Italy, 2011. Of course, not only that, but remembering those moments, provide some kind of serendipity and tranquility inside me. I was really enjoying all the colours (all the incredible shades of aquas and peaceful blues), smells, food, my kids happiness and some blissful moments of doing some hand embroidery and doodles. (yay for the friendship bracelets!!! you can even find the free tutorial here)

We visited some nearby cities, like Gallipoli, Manduria, San Marzano, Porto Cesareo and Porto Selvaggio (double gorgeous).

We found so many shells and took them as souvenirs and reminder of another wonderful summer vacation.

Now, it's time to think about some work here;)
I am preparing many free tutorials, so hopefully I'll be back with the first one in a few days.
