    On our second day at Penny's Paradise we visited the town of Orvieto. As we wound our way up the cobbled hillside to the central square, passing little cafes and shops selling local produce, we were reminded again about how lovely Umbria is. There is nothing over the top, the towns are quiet except for happy, wandering locals and tourists and the food is exceptional.

    Before I go into what we've been up to in Florence, we did have one final morning in Switzerland. With this morning we visited Le Lac Souterrain in St Leonard (an underground lake just beneath the alps, in a sweet little village) The reason for our choice of activity – Channel 4's Coach Trip.

    ... the ceiling and the moths were flying around and mating left, right and centre. It was so gross, and made the whole apartment feel filthy.

    We decided to go for a walk, to explore and clear our heads and figure out what to do about our less than ideal abode. We had been told the apartment was a 15 minute walk to the town, but it took us 30 minutes in 40 degree heat to get there. Yet another detail that ...
