Otherwise, we're leaving them behind and heading back to the island in the morning, hoping this fabulous weather lasts long enough for at least one more good swim before the rains set in. No complaining, though, as the gardens need a good watering and forest fire season is in full swing. . .
I'll leave you with this inspirational photo of my son and daughter-in-law, last featured in this post, cooking up a sumptuous feast for the family. Why inspirational? this is how these two showed up for our drive back to Bari after a week in Peschici. Those backpacks they're wearing? Contain everything they brought for a ten-day stay in Italy! That included looking decent for dinners at the wine estates they visited. Impressive, no? As light as Pater and I travel with our carry-on cases, I couldn't help envy this freedom.
Do you cycle in the city? If not, did you once? Do you cycle at all? Did you when you were young? Or answer any question about cycling or backpacking that you can imagine I might have asked....I always like to hear from you, truly!
