Hello! This morning I was going to check for the small plants of golden tomatoes on my balcony, since I water them quite often, mostly twice a day, when I saw this little beauty taking a rest in the vase of the daisies and contemplating the view. Very quickly, I grabbed my camera and slowly focused on it. Glad I could immortalize the moment we said “good morning” to each other. It was like a little miracle of the day. Wishing a good day to everybody 🙂
From our house to yours, we would like to thanks our followers and guests.
Wishing Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and to your loved ones.
Be safe and see you in 2022! 🎄

Hello! It is the beginning of the fourth Advent week and we are in the mood for Christmas. We enjoyed a beautiful walk in the early morning in the Baroqued old town of Lecce, South of Apulia, and took some pictures while the city was just waking up. A new video is now available on Giuseppa Sallustio Vimeo channel and here in our webpages at My Holidays in Apulia®. Welcome!
It was last year, around Christmas time, when your host, Giuseppa Sallustio, made the following Vimeo video with a selection of photos taken between Autumn and the Advent season 2020 by visiting small towns and cities of art in the South of Apulia. Then, the short Vimeo video was posted here in the Home page dedicated to My Holidays in Apulia® tourist company.
From then on, in this 2021, more steps have been taken to overcome the pandemic, in order to get back to a more normal life and finally, by observing health rules, being allowed to visit families members, meet friends, to travel, etc.
Now, we are almost to enter a new Advent season and the wish for everyone is to live this time of the year with the mesmerising child feeling in the heart.
Welcome and enjoy the video:
It was time for a gorgeous drive along the winding streets of the undulating hills among Brindisi, Bari and Taranto provinces. When we left the city of Lecce, the weather was nice and mild, indeed it was 26° C. Later on, after one hour and a half of driving, the tempearature was around 22° C and the sky had a light veil of clouds, which enhanced the mellowness of the soil and the honeyed palette of colors that nature uses to offer as gift during the Autumn season.
Once more we witnessed a masterwork of nature. Reverberating golden light and pink streakings painted the sky above ploughed fields, these latter as powerful expression of hard work and daily life in the surrounding area. That modern view of a rural frame, which reminded of the meticulous telling of great artists about authentic life in the countryside.
Wishing everybody a beautiful weekend!
“It is nature that makes wheat and grass grow, but it is art that prepares the soil”. – Giovanni Battista Della Porta

Through the eyes of their host, Giuseppa Sallustio, it was the cosy feeling of home for her guests, friends, families who chose Lecce for their Christmas holidays.
They had great time visiting the old center of Lecce, in the South of Italy, enjoying its art, exploring the coasts without missing the chance of a long drive in the beautiful Itria Valley and then having good food all together by the fire place.
