Happy World Tourist Guide Day! As a seasoned guide, I've had my fair share of unusual questions from curious travelers. From asking how much a church costs to wondering if San Nicola (aka Santa Claus) was a real person, I've heard it all.
But my personal favorite has to be the question of the pool depth. Yes, you heard that right. I once had a client who was so obsessed with the depth of the hotel pool that they asked me to measure it for them. I couldn't help but chuckle at the absurdity of it all.
And let's not forget the classic inquiry, "Can you see Yugoslavia from Bari?" Now, I know the Adriatic Sea is beautiful, but I'm afraid Yugoslavia hasn't existed for quite some time now. Sorry to disappoint!
But perhaps the most contentious question of them all is, "Why don't you put pineapple on pizza?" As an Italian, I have to admit, I do take pizza very seriously. So, to me, it's sacrilegious to put pineapple on a pizza. It's like putting Nutella on a hot dog - it just doesn't belong!
