... they seemed to understand, they were from England and just over for a few days! The parade started with much drum beating and marching! And we are still none the wiser of the significance of the event. We walk and walk and walk from 9am until 5pm with only a quick lunch and a coffee at around 3pm, so we are absolutely buggered by the time we get back to our hotel. Dinner tonight was a low key affair at a local eatery and it was nice to share it with a Canadian ...

But this dog was big, like the size of a greyhound, and the woman just let it wander around to other tables which was a bit gross and rude to me. Thankfully I had finished my meal when ...
... Florence has much more graffiti than I ever would have expected. Call it homesickness, fatigue, or hunger, I was not overly stoked on my first view of what would become my home for the next 3 months.
Luckily, however, my first week in Florence was one of pure comfort. After arriving on Wednesday, September 19, I spent only two days in Florence before 2 of my closest friends from home came to ...
