... night in was in store after a big lunch and being exhausted from walking so take away pizza and a movie in our room was the plan. Man if only take away pizza was that good back home. I think I have ruined pizza now for the rest of my life, my god its just too good here!

... This bridge is an artefact in itself and was spared bombing in WWII under direct orders from Hitler. It looks something like a shanti town rather than a UNSCO World Heritage site, nevertheless it was wonderful to see and walk over. The walk over is a sardine, shoulder to shoulder walk with the other twenty thousand tourists in Florence! Its pretty crazy.... The bridge's shops were originally used by butchers in the 1500's however, the filth ...
