Alberobello: Trulli Belli

Picture postcard perfect 
                      A couple of weeks back,
       we went on a roadtrip - a sort of 'early
            birthday celebration' for hubby,
          whose birthday happens to fall on
Festa della Repubblica (meaning that prices
   for any type of accommodation are sky    
            high & everywhere is 'silly busy').

   Our first stop was Alberobello, where we
      managed to tick another one off the
Bucket List by spending the night in a trullo.

Via Bovio, 22 - home for a night 
 It was tiny, it was quaint & it was tucked away from the main tourist drag; in fact, we had real next door but one neighbours, ranging from old 'Nonno'
down to a 3-year old who didn't want to
go to school on Thursday morning.
And, although we were tourists, it was nice
to feel that we weren't really tourists at all.

We did, of course, wander round taking lots of photos, but Thursday was market day
 so I sort of got sidetracked taking 'not your usual tourist pic' shots (more of those later).  But I did take the one shot that surely everyone who comes to Alberobello must take....

I found my heart in Alberobello
