Having just got back today from a wonderful press trip as the guest of Borgobianco Resort and Spa this week’s travel snap is a sneak peek of some forthcoming posts.

I’d like to share with you all that I’ve discovered about Puglia, a lesser known region of Italy, including exploring the enchanting town of Polignano a Mare perched on the clifftops overlooking Italy’s Adriatic coast and of course the beautiful 5 star hotel where I stayed.

I’ve met some wonderful and fascinating people including two fabulous chefs, a ‘light’ artist and a fascinating philosopher/poet. I’ve eaten lots of delicious food from delicate fish dishes to tasty foccacia bread and cheese plus exceedingly good vegetable dishes and succulent meats. I’ve been introduced to some new wines and great locally produced beers. Plus I’ve seen amazing sights including the beautiful trulli of Alberobello and the stunning cave system of Castellana Grotte but first I’ll simply tease you with a glimpse of Polignano from the bridge of the Via Traiana, an ancient Roman road that runs along the coast here.

Travel Insurance

I never travel without insurance. If something unexpected goes wrong the costs implications are just too high to take the risk. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 130 countries. They're the perfect choice for long term travellers or single trip insurance.
