It was last year at Christmas time

It was last year at Christmas time

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 of visiting families members, meeting friends, travelling, 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:

Afternoon up on the hills of Apulia

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!
