TOSCANA: Road trip through Tuscany

on Tuesday, March 30, 2010

This post is going to have to be brief because I have to wake up in a little more than 4 hours for my trip to Paris. I will upload pictures and a longer post later.

However, you should be excited because I had an amazing trip. This past weekend a group of 10 of us rented 2 cars and drove down to Tuscany for 3 nights and 4 days. It was absolutely incredible and we all had a lot of fun. The first night we stayed in the heart of Florence near the Duomo, but the other 2 nights we stayed in 2 different cabins in the rolling hills of Tuscany with no other cabins or stores within a 15 minute drive. It was easily the most peaceful experience I have had so far in Italy and it was a perfect way to start my spring break! Some of the highlights were eating the best gelato I have ever had (by far), playing soccer, going to the top of the tower in Siena, going to a vineyard for a wine tasting, and getting to know a great group of people even better.

I am going to be in Paris from tomorrow until the 6th of April and then Madrid until the 9th. Once I am back in Milan I have to study for my midterm on the 14th but then I am going to Palermo that evening until the 17th. Needless to say, I am very lucky have the opportunity to travel to such beautiful places. Waking up in Milan everyday reminds me of how lucky and blessed I am.
