Spadalunga – Puglia

We have done absolutely  nothing since we got here.  Haven’t been anywhere, haven’t seen anything yet, other than the inside of some restaurants for food of course.  We haven’t even been out for a gelato yet.  Lazy and relaxing is the name of the game and this is the perfect setting for it.

Still no Rain.

It’s 8:00 p.m. and it is finally safe to come out of the house.  We decided to hit our favourite little Italian gelato place for something cool.  After that a short trip to the river valley to scope out an outdoor swimming pool where tomorrow we might seek some solace from this menacing heat.

We are taking it easy this morning.  Lazying around the pool in the middle of nowhere enjoying some sunshine and a nice breeze coming off the hills.  There are few things more relaxing than watching paragliders sail above in the clouds and listening to the water drop off the infinity pool.  Life is good.
