The hills, the hills. They are just beautiful and we definitely did not want to leave after two nights. But we are busy busy honeymooners, with places to go, museums to see... Our hotel in Tuscany was amazing. Tucked away in at the top of the hill away from the village, the hotel was a quiet change of pace from Rome.
The weather unfortunately did not cooperate with reading by the pool, soaking up the sun/view we had planned, but we had a great time anyway. We hopped in our little rental car and braved the VERY treacherous and windy roads and just explored.
Oh and that wonderful cooking class in tuscany we had planned was cancelled... boooo. The chef was "too busy" that day with dinner preparations that he couldnt fit us in. So after I wiped my big pout face off we went to a nearby town and just wandered... yes, more walking. Not that I'm complaining, the walking is definitely welcome after all the delicious food we are eating. SO much wonderful food, sometimes it seems all we do is eat and drink wine... it's a hard life.
Today is Wednesday, June 18 also know as my best friend, Taryn's birthday. Taryn, I hope you had a wonderful birthday week and Mike and I are thinking of you and will be sure to celebrate on your behalf Italy style. Happy belated father's day to the dad's and happy early birthday tomorrow to my Dad! Go golfing (it's thursday after all) and enjoy your day. We love you all lots.
Christine and Mike
