Hi folks, we're sitting in a cafe on the Piazza Vittorio in Turin (Torino) and we've just purchased some internet time using our laptop! It's amazing how we can communicate from our travels these days. Thanks to Todd Decker for introducing us to TravelPod, where we are creating our travel web site. We have posted some pictures from our first 5 days in Italy.

The drive from the Lake to Turin yesterday was "interesting" - as road repair on the Autostrada (we're now calling it the auto-stress-a!) made the driving a little scary for Cindy, and total hell for Mark in the city, because of poor Google-Map directions to the hotel (lesson: don't trust GoogleMap in Europe!). The hotel is in an excellent location, walking distance to all the sites we want to see here.

We hope you enjoy the pictures - we'll try to continue updating this site, but tomorrow we'll be in Cinque Terre (5 medieval villages) in the coastal countryside, and may not have internet access.

Ciao bella!
