As the old Peter, Paul and Mary song went: “Well, my bags are packed . . . I’m ready to go . . . ” and I can almost say that’s true. Trying to pack in the midst of fighting family fires, making last-minute lists, and re-checking reservations for flights, hotels, and most important, wonderful Italian restaurants, has kept this little old tour guide very busy in the past week.
I am so looking forward to showing a new group of women my favorite parts of my favorite country, Tuscany, Italy.
Very early Thursday morning, a limousine will arrive in front of my house and begin to load up the ladies’ luggage, and then the ladies (“women” is the term I prefer . . . ) and the driver will whisk us down to DIA where we will begin our journey, accompanied by mimosas. I like to start out our travels in style.
Within a bit more than 24 hours, we will disembark at the Pertola airport near Florence and begin a 2-1/2 week exploration of Florence. I will post photos and a bit of a narrative of our days, and hope you enjoy traveling vicariously with us. Perhaps you will be inspired to join me for my next adventure, either in France (late April-Mid May 2015) or in Italy again (mid-May to early June, 2015). Watch for more details soon!
In the meantime, ciao!
