and I literally mean finding them. I don’t remember the last time I walked this much. Was more adventurous today and used some back streets which meant I also discovered some little restaurant gems I’ve noted for another day. Talking of restaurants, I had lunch at a lovely one. Just a plate of the local speciality. Orecchiette.  Literally “little ears”. It was delicious.

I’m staying in an Airbnb apartment and the host lives across from me via an enclosed courtyard. She’s invited me to have dinner with her and her younger  daughter tonight which is lovely. I’ll be digging for more hints and tips.

So day 2 a bit calmer. Found another more helpful tourist office and starting to think about how I am going to spend my days. The scary train station is near and I’m sure it’s not normally too bad so will give it a go and go visiting.   But only 1 more day here then I’m back to Bari to meet the parents and my sister and bro-in-law who are coming out for my birthday weekend.   Feeling a little bit lonely at the moment. Not so used to just being on my own most of the day. But once I get going that should get better. To be fair a couple of tourists joined me at my table when I stopped for a coffee. But my German is worse than my Italian and French put together ….😉
