Our workshop in Cinque Terre doesn’t start for 10 days, so we flew from Rome to Brindisi then caught a train along the east coast to Polignano where we met up with Amanda and Gordon for a week by the Adriatic.
I guess some people have trouble remembering which Door to drive through and which door to walk through
Our balcony in Polignano – Balmy breezes, local meats and vegetables, Birra Moretti and Limoncello.
Polignano is built on the edge of the cliffs overlooking the Adriatic
We were luck enough to coincide our visit with the Red Bull world Cliff Diving Championships. These towers are almost 30metres above the sea.
Competitors jump from the towers, perform a series of twists and somersaults to slow their decent, then land feet first in the water at over 80 kph.
Water entry can shatter bones and damage organs if not done correctly, so there were a lot more spectators than competitors.
