The Festival of the Marriage of the Trees

‘You want wine?’ a cheeky Italian got in front of my bleary eyed face and shook his leather-skin pouch holding the nectar goodness. I was taken aback actually and had to check my watch again for the time. It was eight thirty in the morning and I only had a drop of espresso to get me through the hour-long drive from my Corte San Pietro hotel in Matera. It was far too early in the morning, I reluctantly surmised. With a...

Should You Visit Iceland in the Summer?

Walking up to the lakeside in Reykjavik in Iceland, I shielded my eyes with my hand from the glare of the sun as I gazed at the islands in the distance that were clouded partially. A local resident walked by, only stopping to chortle at the tourists pretending to be Vikings at the monumental skeletal remains of the invading ship that stood calling to the sea. Several cars drove past on the road behind me and I just had to glance at my...

For the next four days, I will be at a German Destination I have never visited before. It’s Dusseldorf! As the capital of the German region of North Rhine-Westphalia in West Germany, I’ve heard it’s swanky, cool, hip and what’s more…sexy. What does that mean if it’s sexy? There’s going to be a Rexy visiting! (see, clever pun) As the centre for unique architectural designs, a hot bed of...

Who’s THAT Travel Blogger?! – Hayley of the LovePuffin Travel Blog

Before I went on my RTW travels, I could be often found stalking other travel blogs but what really interested me was the travel blogger behind the witticisms of their writing. Who are they? Are they real? Are they fit? So hence, for a long time coming, I wanted to do some travel blogging interviews and crack them open for their rawness inspiration of travel inside. Think Michael Parkinson.     This interview is with,...

Review: Corte San Pietro, Matera, Basilicata

‘Welcome to my home,’ Fernando greeted us warmly. We had arrived at the Corte San Pietro Hotel in the panoramic city of Matera in Basilicata. Lugging our suitcases into his inner courtyard in the cool air of the night, I was utterly amazed by the simple splendour of the luxurious hotel. With the clean and polished rock walls of the ancient stones of Matera, it certainly brought an ambience that was relaxing and luxury personified....

19 Pictures Why Matera Should be European Capital of Culture 2019

Stealthily in the night, a stray dog slunk from around a dark corner and passed by me without a raised snout in my direction. I braced myself with a hand against the ancient stone wall and peered behind me, watching the only life form I’ve seen in the last thirty minutes in this historic Italian city of Matera. From my hotel (Corte San Pietro), I climbed higher and higher through winding cobble-stoned streets with the glorious...

Is It Worth Visiting Basilicata in Italy?

‘I’ve never heard of Basilicata, really,’ a friend of mine said shaking his head as he poured me a cup of tea while I was too busy scoffing my face with Hob Nobs. I had just told him I was going to be visiting Basilicata in Italy in a few days. Offering my thanks as I accepted my hot beverage from him, I wiped the crumbs off my shirt and asked him why he hasn’t heard of Basilicata. ‘People don’t...
