Thank you DOT429 and FOUR TWO NINE Magazine for the feature and article ” Around the world with LGBT travel expert Carlos Melia “. Few people know the LGBT travel industry as well as Carlos Melia.

La Compagnie operates with several flights a week on a full 74 Business-Class-Seats configured Boeing 757-200 known for its reliability, comfort, and fuel efficiency. The aircraft was previously operated by Icelandair.

CarlosMeliaBlog LIVE w/ Rashel Diaz at the studios of NBC Universal in New York, for my collaboration as Travel Expert at the morning show Un Nuevo Día on Telemundo.Telemundo is the leading Spanish speaking channel, and “Un Nuevo Dia” has recently won the Day Time Emmy as Outstanding Day Program in Spanish.
One of my favorite attractions, during my week visit to Puglia in the South of Italy, which at the same time I must admit, was also the most touristic, was the UNESCO World Heritage site of Alberobello and the unique and charming Trulli. An exceptional example of vernacular architecture. It is one of the best preserved and most homogeneous urban areas of this type in Europe. A Trullo or plural Trulli, (from the Greek word τρούλος, cupola) is a traditional Apulian dry stone hut with a conical roof. Trulli were generally constructed as temporary field shelters and storehouses or as permanent dwellings by small proprietors or agricultural labourers. Traditionally trulli were built using dry stone masonry. Their golden age was the 19th century. Nowadays you can find houses, hotels, restaurants and stores, inside the Trulli, all over the town of Alberobello, also part of the province of Bari. Town we named, in a funny way “Trulliland”, making you feel either in the Hobbit’s Shire Middle-Earth or right into a scene of the Smurfs.
