Our week in Tuscany was fabulosso! (I made that up for those of you who speak Italian) Each day was filled with another exciting activity, delicious food, and perfect weather.
Rick traveled with us to Pisa and spend the first few days with us in Florence. We stayed in a tiny hillside village south of Sienna, Monitsi, in a beautifully renovated villa with 14 other travelers, including some of Sandi's slow travel buddies and a group of eccentric older women from Columbus, Georgia who kept us laughing most of the time.
Over the course of the week we took cooking lessons, art lessons, toured wineries, shopped for pottery, and Sandi even took a hot air balloon ride over the Tuscan countryside.
Between the two of us we have such great pictures and stories to share that you will have to read about our adventures for the next couple of posts! Ciao.....for now!
