    Initially we noticed this hotel on a web site promoting last minute deals and it was offering a room including breakfast for €39 where every other hotel in the region was around 80 to 130 range. We decided not to book on line but just turn up and check it out first. On arrival we were pleased to find that there were still rooms available but the asking price now was €49 including breakfast. We did ask about the €39 deal but was politely told that was on line and last night , we tried to haggle but without joy. Still at €49 it was a good deal so we took two rooms between the four of us. The rooms were a good size not big but enough room to be comfortable. The bathrooms and linen were very clean and the heating was working well. A little too well in fact we turned down the room heating and opened the windows to cool the rooms down which made it very comfortable. The remainder of the hotel however was very warm and we found this uncomfortable. We were here in Early November so the outside temp was cool and the pool was not an option. There is a busy road at the front but with the double glazed windows the noise was not noticeable, until we opened the windows to cool the room, but at night no issues at all. The staff were all friendly and eager to help us, with directions and any other questions we had, the language barrier was not an issue, the hotel reception manager spoke very good English. Breakfast was very good offering a selections of cereals and breads cold meats cheese, pastries yogurts, fresh fruit and tea and coffee. Overall we were very happy write the hotel and its staff and would stay here again no problem. As for location it was a 20 minute walk up to the old city or a bus from outside the hotel for around €3 very well located.

    ... all our booty home in one trip???





    So we settled on a few little trinkets, and a yummy lunch overlooking the Piazza. It has snowed recently here, but none coming down today while we look on, which is just as well or we wouldn't have been able to dine al fresco. So after a few hours discovering Siena, and the most delicious lunch eaten looking over the snow covered Piazza, we hightailed it ...

    ... and white marble was stunning and you couldn’t help but be mesmerized. Not that the Donatello and the Raphael paintings helped…
    The entire floor area was a masterful comic book like storyboard from the Bible all etched and in mosaic in marble. Very cool. The outer façade at the front was all decorated with the animal kingdom a bit like the Laon Notre Dam. And even though there were the legions of tourists everywhere, it was a very reverent ...

    ... the race, if the horse themselves make it to the finish line first, that contrade still wins! So cool! After touring around a bit more and looking at the diff types of churches and going up and down the larrrge hills, we broke for lunch. Steph and Molly and I went to a little sandwich shop, got some food and shoped around. This area is so much more laid back than usual. I also bought a cute pair of teal flats for just 13 euros!!
    Afterwards, we went to ...

    I arrived in Certaldo today, having spent last night in Florence. First, a bit about Florence. It smells. Like urine. Which is great when you're sipping a latte facing some fancy building (the Duomo, Battistero, something... I don't know, I get lost a lot). Anyways, the smell is super. But the city itself, once you get over the smell and stop being so lost, is pretty nice. I haven't seen much, but I'll be going back at least once on a ...

    ... taken time for my mind to get use to the change of the traveling lifestyle and the newness to ware off. After some time, you find yourself thinking about different stuff...very randomly. I have been juggling these thoughts around in my head these last few weeks. Slowly the start grow into clear thoughts and ideas...even answers to questions you have asked yourself for years. There are two major themes I think about everyday: 1. Believe it or not, I think about who ...
