…but here goes.  So I thought I was booking a tour but turns out it was a driver who spoke no English. Basically I was paying for transfers. However 4 others made the same mistake so we muddled on through together and my Italian got even more opportunities to be given a go.

First stop Galatina. Now this was a return visit but last time was a bad weather day and was just for lunch. This time the church and Basilica were both open. And the Basilica was incredible. Fresco after Fresco.


Next stop was Otranto. I’ve talked about this place previously but it’s beautiful in the sunshine and just for Kevin a pseudo selfie to prove I’m here..
