I come from a small town in south Italy called Sava - Here:
We visit my place every summer because we have one of the most beautiful beach resorts in Italy! The water is warm and cristal clear and the beaches are white and sandy!
Also, food is delicious, and since Stefano and I are good gourmets, we have had loooads of food ----which reminds me: I've made the 30 days challenge but then left for Italy and gained 3 kilos..(sigh sob)
How have the holidays gone?
Well.. It's nice to be back home. As soon as we landed in Brindisi, I've realised how much I missed that beautiful piece of land. I am fine in Spain, but there's no place like home, right?
|Port of Otranto|
Stefano was pretty impressed by the Cathedral in Otranto - the cathedral has a beautiful mosaic on the floor representing the genesis but, if you walk further, you will find this:
|I must admit it does looks a bit creepy..|
Back to places and lands now:
|Santa Maria di Leuca's Caves|
If you visit Santa Maria don't hesitate to get a trip by boat and visit its famous caves ;) They are gorgeous!

I decided I want to learn old traditions of my family and region, so I can bring them with me anywhere I go.
A typical homemade pasta made in my region is orecchiette.
|Granma and I|
I got her to teach me how to make them - I still have to practice many years if I want to reach her perfection!
I didn't take any picture of dishes and food.......... that's because I want to prepare them myself and share the experience here on the blog :P
