... per hour, you can't beat train travel in Europe...you leave in the middle of town and get to the middle of town. 15 minutes in a taxi, 10 Euro's later, and we are the hotel..makes Adelaide taxi fares look very very expensive!

Today has been a really rough blood sugar day for me and it's left me feeling pretty crummy and worn out.

... is a younger Brunello (Brunello is aged 5 years in Oak). With our bags full of wine, we climb back down hill to the car. On to the Monastery of Sant'Antimo a short drive away.
