Spent Sat and Sun exploring Florence again. This week we get the fierenze card to see the museums for three days. Yesterday we meet up with Luca and had a great day walking up to San Miniato al Monte and Piazza Michelangelo, nice day but windy. Took lots of pictures, walked all over town and went for a nice pasta lunch. Today we rest, shop and rest some more. The next 3 days will be hard work waiting in ques and viewing all the galleries. Will talk again soon.

We are now in Florence and bunkered down in our Hotel room. Once again Google Maps thought we should go the scenic route, however a chap we asked the street name from directed us a much quicker one. No dinner tonight after our loverly Italian lunch, but definitely an early night is in ...
... going to be a small little garden. NO, this was a garden on a massive scale and.....overlooking Firenze. We got some beautiful photos and I will post them here.
Today, had been the highlight of the trip for Keith. I have never seen him more full of life. He wandered around the gardens and the palazzo like a little kid in a candy store. What was so perfect about today? Seeing him smile all day long and running through the gardens, literally running. ...
