In these first days of spring, if you are lucky, raising your eyes to the sky you can see flocks of swallows that come back after the long winter.
It is a fascinating spectacle that fills the heart with hope: the beautiful days are coming back, let’s get ready.
The return of the swallows is a moment of joy and serenity and we imagine that many of you have experienced this sensation.
No, we are not swallows, obviously, but how many times have we found ourselves looking up while waiting for a plane to land that brings home a family member who works or lives far away?
And who returns, does not feel a little like a small swallow who finally returns home, to find the nest he had left?
Airports and stations are places that could tell millions of these stories, tears of joy and long hugs.
Summer is the time when those who return home do not do it for a simple vacation, they want to embrace their origins and recharge their batteries.
In Puglia, the Family Reunions, are a real village festival: Everybody is called: cousins, second and third degree uncles, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. All ready to have fun, tell old anecdotes, stories of past lives.
Wouldn’t it be a good idea to even meet in another part of the world, a place that no one has ever seen and live it together, like a family?
Obviously, our advice is, also in this case, to choose Puglia: the BeeYond Travel villas have numerous beds and ensure the necessary privacy and tranquility that these moments deserve.
Waking up together, having breakfast, going to the beach, and then in the evening enjoying a barbecue in the moonlight: all these elements would make any family reunion unforgettable.
There are experiences that can be made here in Puglia that would strengthen ties that maybe the distance has weakened: gathering fresh fruits and vegetables and preparing them for lunch, perhaps after having learned to make orecchiette, the classic Apulian pasta. And then excursions in wonderful cities of art or in small villages, where you can lose yourself in the intricate streets and meet again in the only square of the village, perhaps led by the band that plays in honor of the Patron Saint.
No, it’s not a dream.
Now we understand why swallows always come back: they are doing well in Puglia and you and your family could say the same thing if you chose all this beauty for your holidays.
