I don’t think it’s ever too early to plan for a trip. There are so many ways to get information that it’s easy to do research and discover places to visit in the future. Even the idea of going on a trip is so exciting that it’s a nice way to pass the time. I’m thinking about another trip to Italy. And now that I know there’s delicious gelato throughout the country, I can concentrate on what I’d like to see. This time I’m going to consider some different places.
Spending time at a local bookstore is a great way to find information that helps with the planning process. Once I find a comfortable chair, hours go by before I realize how many books (or magazines) I’ve read.
I’ve been enjoying a beautiful book about farmhouses in Puglia that I recently received as a giveaway from Sharing My Italy…The Blog. You can see lots of pictures from the book on her blog post, and I’ve included a few more here. This is a region I’d like to visit if only to admire these buildings!
I’ve found that late spring is an ideal time to travel. The weather is usually nice and the crowds aren’t too overwhelming. So it definitely isn’t too soon to start planning. It allows me to start dreaming about the trip that much sooner.
