Our Journey: Creativity, Reflection and a Love Affair with Nature

Matera: From Shame to Shine, A City Reborn

     We were unprepared for the effect that Matera would have on us. As one of the oldest cities in the world, its life’s breath has risen and fallen.

Alberobello and its Unique Spellbinding Trulli

 The unique and unusual ‘trulli’ of Alberobello were a sight to behold. Wandering around these remarkably unconventional dwellings, one can only be curious as to how they came about.

What else can we say – it was an unexpected pleasure. Just awe inspiring!   As we approached the new part of Monemvasia we could see the small, but commanding island where the […]
