Wandering Around Lecce

Italy is one place that’s a real treat to just stroll the streets of any city or town your find yourself in. Be it the popular cities like Rome, Florence and Venice or the smaller out of the way places like Lecce (where this photo was taken) way down south in Puglia. The character and charm of these cities are what really gets me. Take the photo above, walking a […]


What to See and Do in Brindisi

Many of you might ask where is Brindisi before looking for things to see and do, such is its hidden status to the average tourist.

A Street in Brindisi, Italy

I don’t know why when it’s filled with such amazing sights like the Colosseum. Standing before the Colosseum, one of the most well-known symbols of Rome it’s hard to believe that it […]


How Much Did It Cost – Naples Budget

Naples Naples Naples…. I wanted to love you and that delicious melt-in-your-mouth pizza but I just couldn’t. After so much beauty in Florence, you just felt like the ugly cousin of the family I’m afraid. The up side of this is I didn’t explore as much as I should have so saved a little coin just relaxing and doing a little people watching along the shoreline. Day Transport Hostel Attractions […]
