After 5 years

After 5 years I am heading to Italy again. The last time I went I was young, impractical and excited.
Now that I am being honest I think nothing much has changed ..except the young bit I think!

Well I am heading to where the sun does shine and its a glorious 28 degrees, unlike here where the sun DONT shine, its a cold wet 16 degrees C and its been raining for the past 3 days with no signs of stopping...whatever happened to global warming? huh?
kidding..we do need the rain as drought has been predicted this summer in parts of UK..but where I am...there is NO lack of water whatsoever!

Cant say I am looking forward to being lost, but there is something to be said about landing somewhere where you dont get the language, dont know the directions and have a pretty good idea about what you want to do! (which includes what you want to eat!! and Drink!!)
Just need to plan how to get what you want I guess..the story of my life!!!
But I think that is where the excitement kicks in, being lost... Going to yet another part of the planet, meeting yet another set of humans who are like and unlike me!

Last trip to Italy, I covered most of the important places and a few unimportant ones, but Florence was left out. This time I shall be covering the Duomo there and the Florentine craftsmen if I get the chance. Also want to see the Leaning tower of Pisa which apparently does not lean anymore! But what the heck I shall stand at an angle and get a touristy shot!

Adios amigos! Shall be back with pictures!

Hmm. Italy, huh? Interesting. You seem to be a globe-trotter. Good. Have fun.
