Three weeks in Italy now...sooo beautiful. (slowwwww internet..hence no blogging! :(... )...BUT..today we arrived in Florence and so I had to persevere to say I am now sitting on the terrace at the FABULOUSLY BEAUTIFUL VALDIROSE B&B...OH...MY...GOODNESS!!! Irene..you have made the most heavenly place on earth here...just gorgeous. (especially after some rather tired and sad hotels etc on our travels..pompeii, viterba...sigh)...but here!! And Irene sadly isn't even here! Away at a wedding...but her dad is the most welcoming, lovely host...nothing too much trouble. So fellow bloggistas!!..when in Florence, this is the place for you!!....photos will be coming when we've been here more than a millisecond!...but they take an age too so maybe when I'm home in 10 days. Just wanted to say, if you haven't seen Irene's beautiful B&B...check it out here...Valdirose ..bellissima, mi amica...bellissima!...Thankyou Irene and family for being so great with my on again, off again booking!!!!
So we love Italy...but the driving!!...went into Florence city itself then spent about an hour getting back out to get to this southern area of Florence!!NINE LANES MERGING WITH NO LINES...INSANE TRAFFIC HERE!! ( nothing like little ole New Zealand!) But Steve has practically become an Italian now when it comes to driving (on the WRONG side of the road, i might add!!)...did the Amalfi coast and now he thinks he can take on anything!! ;)
Ciao bellas..time to sleep after our long day...Buon notte...
