I am sat in Andrea's Aunties lovely apartment in Tuscany thinking....'could we get away with hiding in a cupboard for a little longer in heaven'?! It's going to be really hard leaving in the morning after a brilliant five days enjoying:
a) full on SPACE
b) amazing food - Eugene's cooking and La Pievucca
c) the brilliant company of our great friends!
It has been a week that started with a worrying (to the boys) ...
... of cheese it was but it was delicious. I stupidly asked the woman who owned the shop if she had any Brie cheese... needless to say she laughed in my face and told me Brie is native to France (how was I supposed to know?). Next, we found a cute little outlook ad took scenic pictures of the rolling hills of Tuscany. Then we drove about 45 mins to eat lunch at Sant' Anna ... a monastery which is now a retreat house, a gem of Tuscany ...
... village of Monterosso, it said it was a 2 hour walk but we did it in 1 and a half but it was not an easy walk, lots of steps and narrow walkways at times! It was funny because everyone we past going uphill never spoke! We reached the final village for a well earned gelato!
We really enjoyed today as it was so beautiful. And tonight we are really tired.
... here and the town is very quiet. We went into the medieval village again, this time venturing into the little narrow streets by car - very scarry! It really did feel like we were driving through where you should only walk. To give you an example its like driving your car up cable car lane off Lambton Quay - except I would say Cable Car lane is wider!
Weather here today much cooler ...
... me down a street... I shot him the biggest death stare ever when he approached me and then went and told the police officer. All was okay though, so don't worry Dad!! (if you're reading this).
I got back to Florence around 5.30pm, stopped by a supermarket (always fun :D ) to pick up some cheap dinner, made my way back to the hostel and here I am.
