|Typical Tuscan Countryside|
What Could be Better than spending a week at a countryside villa in Tuscany? A week in a Tuscan Villa with my sister!
What Could be Better than taking a tacky tourist picture of me holding up the Tower of Pisa? Convincing my sister to take a picture supporting above mentioned leaning structure!
What Could be Better than climbing up the Mangia Tower in Siena? Looking down onto the Piazza del Campo and imagining the horses running around the outside in the annual Palio Horse Race.
What Could be Better than eating delicious Italian food? Having a lovely Italian woman teach you how to make the traditional, simple Tuscan meals as passed down to her by her mother and mother's mother. Thanks Paola!
What Could be Better than saddling up to the coffee bar to enjoy a cappuccino in Italy? Enjoying a cappuccino at a quaint little trattoria in the small Tuscan village of Rosano. In the cities you'll be charged extra to have a seat, but not here!
What Could be Better than overlooking Florence and the famous Ponte Vecchio? Being on the Ponte Vecchio!
What Could be Better than spending your birthday in Tuscany? I just don't know,...
*unfortunately other members of the family could not join in on the adventure (probably the mainly due to my lack of organization and advance notice)
