Next month, we are traveling to Southern Italy from Philadelphia by way of the Pacific Northwest. Does this make sense? Not really. Are we excited? Heck yeah!
As adventurous travelers, we sometimes have to suspend all common sense and submit to the quest. Flying across the United States to attend a food writing conference in Seattle and then taking three planes to enjoy the best that Southern Italy has to offer – this itinerary makes perfect sense to us.
Why Southern Italy?
After a few days of exploring Naples and its frenetic streetscape, we’re hopping into a car to discover some less-traveled areas of the South including the ancient city of Matera and the trulli houses in Puglia.
