we had the pleasure to be invited to a blog tour in a valley called Valle del Raganello, in Calabria, the region at the toe of the italian peninsula. we decided to leave a day early, to explore one of the most beautiful town in Italy, Matera, in Basilicata region.
we spent a whole day driving and singing, and the funniest thing is that we realized that if we had driven for the same amount of kilometers but towards north, we'd reach Berlin or Paris! so, you can easily imagine the variety of scenery and lifestyles that we passed through. looking at my beautiful country sliding out of the car window, feeling every kilometer, was a good lesson of geography.
we'd have loved to take this amazing journey by lambretta, but it would have required at least a 15 days long vacation.
i leave you with two postcards i brought home, a little preview of the stories from southern Italy i'll tell you next week. have a lovely week end!
p.s. before my southern italy trip, i have opened i diari della lambretta's facebook page. it's going to be a place for blog updates and pictures. hope you like it ♥
