The ultimate goal for this Voyage is to learn about the part of Italy where my father, Saverio (Sal) was born--Puglia (in Italian, Apulia). When Dad was still with us, we always talked about going to his hometown together. We never made that trip. Even though he left as a boy of 4 years old, he always remembered the white houses, the harbor full of fishing boats and the smell of the sea. My dream is to bless myself in the waters he played in as a child.
The town of Molfetta is my personal reason for going to Puglia but there is so much more here... 2000 year-old olive trees, caves, grottoes, seafood, the world's best bread and "Land of Oz" Trullo pointy-roofed houses. We are looking forward to spending some time in a Trullo B&B near Alberobello (a town with hundreds of Trulli) and in an apartment in the historic center of Molfetta overlooking the harbor.
