Tuscany Road Trip

You might think that I have already abandoned this blog since I haven’t been updating for the longest time ever. The truth is June and July have just been very busy for me — entertaining visitors, planning our three-week European holiday, and arranging things for my return to work after a three-year sabbatical!

But I won’t be overwhelming you with too much information on this blog entry. For now I just want to write about my recent trip to Tuscany, one of the best regions of Italy.

Le road trip de rêve — we followed the advice of our Lonely Planet guidebook, except we’ve replaced Volterra with Arezzo and Cortona

We have planned on going for a road trip all over Tuscany. our trip consisted of eight days and eight nights coming from Bordeaux, France to Florence to Pisa to Lucca to San Giminiano to Siena and Chianti Arezzo to Cortona and finally back to Florence again.

it was quite a tiring trip but definitely worth it! the place is as magical as how you imagine it and a lot lot better than pictures!

i have seen places that were the setting of some of my well-loved movies: The English Patient and La Vita e Bella, to name a few. you would think that visiting a single place in Tuscany would be sufficient because if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all… NOT true at all. each time we progress to the next destination in our trip, we get completely awed by how beautifully different one place is compared to the last one we’ve visited.
