Tuscany ... We made it!

We always promised our selves that we would go to Tuscany some day and here we are. We are in the town of Sienna. It is a medieval town completely surrounded by a large wall. The streets are all cobblestone (come to think of it – so was Rome and Sorrento). Walking thru town you can imagine knights and damsels from King Arthur’s time (ok wrong country but the analogy works).

We drove up here this morning on the Autostrada. Its kind of fun being able to legally go 85mph. (I wont say how fast we really went ) but you sure can cover a lot of ground in a short period of time. We are here today and tomorrow. After that our schedule is open. We may stay another day here or we may head north towards Switzerland. You will know when we do.

Did I mention that we are paying about $9.00 for a gallon of gas?

We also brought so much clothes that we are seriously contemplating either shipping a bunch back home or just throwing out a suitcase full. The saving grace I guess is that we are traveling by car. If we were going by train we would have already lighted the load.


  1. Greg and Katie,

    It sounds like y'all are having a wonderful time, and I can't wait to see more of your adventures on here each day. Love the pics and commentary.

    Now don't forget... Switzerland = Chocolate.


  2. Wow! It sure looks like an amazing trip! Love seeing all the photos! Wish we were all there with you!

  3. From the photos, the camera appears to be working fine, and is all you wanted it to be.

    Looks like the trip has been also.
