Florence - the good stuff

Besides, the initial trouble and a parking ticket in the days to follow...Florence was really beatiful. Lots of art, lots of museums. A lot of what we saw I can't show you because most of the museums don't allow cameras. We saw Michaelangelo's David and the 2 copies through out the city (which I will show you, but they just don't live up to the real thing it was incredible). So without further ado here's Florence...

David number one: this is the copy that stands where the original once did...

Our daily gelato... how I will miss this...

The Ponte Veccio bridge in the background. I highly recommend seeing this at nigth when all the crazy vendors are closed and all that is there are the lust driven locals making out...

Hard to see but this is locals making out...

David number two, a bronze version at Piazza Michaelangelo.. the most beautiful view (see above).

We're now in Vernazza in the Cinque Terre on the coast, also known as my new favourite place in the world. Can't wait to tell you more, but the beach is calling.

Lots of love,
Christine and Michael


  1. To bad about the car - but it will be a good story to tell.

    The pictures are great and being able to follow has been special - you'll have to show me how to do it before we go in September.

    We will be there on Thursday to pick you up. Looking forward to seeing you and having you safely home.

    I think you should move some of the trees in the yard - tough getting that mower around them.

    Happy Birthday Taryn and Rob.


  2. Hi there
    Sorry I haven't written for awhile but I was waiting for another e-mail -- too dumb to know that they were already there and all I had to do was click on the original. I will know better now. Sounds like you are having a wonderful trip -- I'm envious. Even with little bumps and tickets, it iw wonderful. I'm sure you will be sorry when you have to come home. We will be happy when you are home safe and sound and we can see all your pictures and hear all the stories. We love you both and miss you lots.

  3. Mike...you no longer look touristy (it was really only the one pic), you two look like seasoned Italianos. Can't wait to see you two and hear all about it. Mike, I hope you didn't drop any
    "f -bombs" when you and the tree had a "moment"!

    Love you both,
    Michelle & Adam
