Rtw Day 25: Relaxing in Florence
It's occurred to me recently that I'm not in a hurry. Unfortunately, this realisation came a little late or I might have spent more time in Berlin or Amsterdam but... o well.
Anyway, I have a little over 3weeks left in Italy before I head over to South Korea and only 3 places to visit... including where I am right now so I'm trying to relax a bit.
For the most part, my time in Florence has been me wandering around the city. My first day consisted of intentionally getting lost with my camera in-hand, and yesterday I took a 25€ walking tour to learn more about the history. Today I'm doing some laundry and relaxing on the balcony and maybe later I'll make my way over to the pretty merchant's bridge on the other side of town.
Tomorrow should be exciting though, I'm taking a bus tour through Tuscany. For those of you who don't know, Tuscany is the name for the region in which Florence, Pisa and Siena reside. The tour will take us around town, give us a chance to see the tower, take pictures of pretty things and then eat some lunch. It's a full 12hours so that should be interesting.
I also haven't seen Michaelangelo's David yet (though I saw a replica placed where the original used to be). Frankly, the replica wasn't that impressive, but I'll probably go see it anyway on Sunday.
That's it for now. The pictures of Milan are up, so if you're interested, you can check that out there. Melanie has requested that I write some comment code for the images so I'll see if I can find time to do that on the trip from Florence to Venice but for now, if you have comments on pictures, please just post them here.
