I had never even heard of Brindisi in Italy before I booked the flight and the reason I came across it was using Ryanairs cheap fare finder (you should all use this by the way – cheap and a great way to find strange, new, not so touristy places)
I paid like £30 for return flights, crazy! I booked a villa of Airbnb, it was in the middle of nowhere, so abit of a nightmare to get around! It was my birthday whilst I was there which was super special and I got super spoilt (see pics below) I woke up to a bottle of Pink champagne, presents on our rooftop and Pink balloons everywhere. How cute is le Bae?
We luckily had some bikes at the villa so we rode around all day stopping for pizza and pasta and beer. We went to the beach, it was pretty dam cold but my god that refreshed me!
I really recommend taking a short ride to a city called Ostuni! Its like an older less comercial version of Santorini – all white buildings. So beautiful to be around and to take pictures.
I really think everyone should do this once in a while – take a cheap flight to somewhere you have never heard of before and ditch the usual commercial tourist traps. I dont think I met one other tourist on this trip.. which is great sometimes!
