As some of you may know, I am planning a trip to England this September (see countdown in sidebar) to visit a friend and her new hubby. While I am there, the three of us are planning a long weekend to Florence, Italy.
All of this, I knew would happen, but then I get an email from A and she says, "It's time to plan our trip to Italy!" So suddenly it becomes real! Actual plans!?! Oh boy, I'm nervous and excited all over again! My excitement has been refreshed!
She suggests we fly into Pisa and take a 1 hour train ride into Florence because it will save us money. Great! I secretly wanted to eyeball that leaning tower anyway (hope I can see it, atleast!).
And a train ride through the Tuscan countryside??? Yeah, twist my arm!!
We have decided to rent an apartment for our 5 days/4 nights because it is actually cheaper than getting a hotel room. Also, with a full kitchen we will be able to shop in the markets for fresh goodies and cook them ourself! Less expensive and waaaay fun!
Once the final plans for the apartment have been made, I'll share some photos and information about it. I'm excited all over again!!!
