    ... scrambled and were able to get a flight, a day later into Rome and a flight to Florence. So, we meet at their hotel: Hotel Grand Minerva at 6. We have some time to kill.

    Florence is a walking city. So, we walk. Window shopping is an art in Florence. Dodging tourists is an art in Florence…thankfully we are professionals at BOTH! We know the back streets/alleys of Florence which have some AMAZING stores most ...

On Sunday (July 15th) Todd navigated our way to the city center using the public bus and we joined yet another bus tour. We had a lot of laughs on the bus tour because the driver was so crazy and I at least got knocked out by about five tree branches throughout the day.

    ... this guy, to the point standing and squirming out of her seat because she was laughing so hard, you could hear her laugh on the other side of the square.  We then decided that we were going to attempt to take public transportation home instead of waiting 3 more hours till the bus came.
