The university is closed, the exams are gone: it’s time for summer break. I quickly pack up, grab the camera and head to one of the many stunning corners of Puglia: the Gargano National Park. Avoiding the highway, we decided to slow down and travel coast-by-coast.
We mean to camp overnight on the shores, but the first stop is Vieste, a coastal town many times awarded with the Blue Flag for its crystal blue water. It is not designed for partygoers.
Relax is the main theme, and this is the attitude we set our mind on, just wandering throughout the old city, admiring the trabuccos, eventually picking up glasses of wine.
Climbing the cliffs along curvy roads, the day after we moved to another tiny port, Peschici. Surprisingly, there were a really few people laying on the wide beaches.
We honestly like when there’s nothing contrasting with the blue sky, the turquoise sea and the white sand.
On the way back home, we came by the highest point of Gargano, Monte Sant’ Angelo, where we bumped into a silent procession of people. We found out they were celebrating the religious festivity for the “Madonna del Carmine” (Our Lady of Mount Carmel), whose statue is taken all around the town.
