    January 4 in Italy

    In a word, Bari for us was all about food. The girls commented that all we did was eat in the 24hrs. There was very fresh seafood, fine Barisene food, fantastic sgagliozze aka polenta chips and the best gelato so far.

    Our waiter from dinner proudly declared that he learnt to speak such good English from Netflix.

    In the medieval laneway, ladies would sell their homemade pastas and biscuits from their front doors. They would sit in their homes with the front doors open, a table set outside displaying their produce. They would shout their conversations to each other, as their hands busied with rolling and shaping orriechiete, 1.5 cm ear shaped pastas.

    In the evening, we finally saw a live nativity scene complete with dancing fluttering baby angels in front of a church just around the corner from our apatment. The locals were so welcoming of us, we were offered hot chocolate (we declined), and homemade biscuits, which we were obliged to accept. A man was most insistant that we walk amongst the scene which to our embarrassment, we did and got into everybody's way. It was such a happy and warm atmosphere that no one minded. Even when the crowd spilled into the street and blocked the flow of traffic, not a horn or impatient shout was heard.

    However, the next morning, Bari became the only place where we were told to leave a church (not the nativity church). We are still not sure why.

    Lastly in Bari, it took us only 2 hrs to see all the sights. Sum total of 2 Basilicas and 1 castle.

    The most important and significant find at the Basilica Santa Nicola, was that Ruby's patron saint is Saint Nicholas, aka Santa Claus. Very apt as He personifies Christmas and he is also the Saint of persons without certain undergarments. She was here to venerate her patron saint's remains in this Basilica. This Basilica is used both by the Orthodox and the Catholics.

    April 28, 2017 in Italy

    Érkezés után egyből a Maggiore-hoz sietünk felvenni a kocsit. A procedúra kicsit kicsit elhúzódott de megérte. Miután megtudták, hogy nem megyünk Nápoly felé, a hőn áhított nyitható tetejű Fiat 500-as helyett egy Mini One-t adtak. Dupla upgrade!!! Bár nagyon vártuk a kis Fiatot de a Mini is nagyon stílszerű.
    Barira bő két órát szántunk, elég is volt. Sétáltunk egy nagyot az óvárosban, voltunk bazilikban, templomban, láttunk várat és egy temetési ceremóniába is belesodrodtunk.
    Éhhalál ellen vettünk pár helyi falatot (mindenféle szalámi, sonka nyesedék, sajtkocka olivaolajba bekeverve), majd irany Gargano felé.

    Day 11: Bari, Italy

    July 1, 2017 in Italy

    Today we arrived in Bari after a 16 hour ferry ride. The ferry ride didn't turn out to be so bad and felt like it was actually pretty quick.

    When we arrived in Bari, google told us of yet another bus that didn't exist so when we asked around and no one knew, one of the port guards asked the Police. Since they couldn't find the bus either, they told us to get in a gave us a lift to our Airbnb. They were really nice and gave us some tips about Bari. There car was really small so the backseat was full with us and our two backpacks.

    Our Airbnb was pretty nice too. They had a cute 2 and a half year old son (or daughter - Zoe and I are debating as I heard Liam and she heard Lea, but he looked like a boy). At one point we were napping and we heard our door creeking so I went to go check and he was in the hallway.

    At night, we had a nice walk around the city and went to a pizzeria recommended by our Airbnb host. It was delicious, but took us a while to find it as it goes by three names apparently and we only knew 2/3 and it wasn't the one listed on the outside of the restaurant. Zoe had a Margharita pizza and I had a Caprese and then we walked around the town a bit and walked in a few stores (including H&M).

    It's a cute little town and it was nice to see it. Our Airbnb was right by the water too which made for a nice walk. :)
