Traveling Like a Local with Locals!

♥ La Dolce Vita Salento Style! ♥

It’s so fabulous to be back in Puglia in spring time! It’s hard to believe that this is trip and tour #6! Every visit is as spectacular as the previousalways more to see and experience- and all of this is made all the more special because I partner/collaborate with local experts. Ylenia and Michele of YLTourPR and I have been a team for three fabulous years.

♥ Now returning is like returning home…
