8 Hours in Florence and Pisa

9 Nov 2013

On our third and last day in Italy (here's our awesome day 1 visiting family and day 2 spent in the gorgeous italian riviera) we found ourselves with four hours to kill before we needed to head to the airport in Pisa. We drove from Genoa to Florence, where we stopped for a focaccia at a lively little place where the owners, a married couple, sang and danced as they worked at a furious pace to serve all the tourists customers gathering around their counter. We washed down our breads with their local table wine, which turned out to be both outstanding and incredibly alcoholic. No doubt the former a causality of the latter. Proof of that is in the last picture.

Cinque Terre in a Day

7 Nov 2013

Day two of our adventures in Italy started with a two-hour forty-five minutes' ride zigzagging along the coast of the riviera to get to the Northenmost of the Cinque Terre: Monterosso. (Here's day 1 meeting our long lost relatives in Italy and day 3 running about florence and taking silly pictures in pisa *bonus: funny animated GIF of me....)
