I can't believe how busy this summer has been. June - and Italy - seems like such a long time ago! It's gone so fast though, which may be why it's taken me this long to go through the rest of my holiday photos.
I loved Italy. I think that’s been pretty obvious. I don’t think I’ve ever been somewhere before where I got home and started looking up the price of flights back straightaway (£50 return in October! LET’S GO!).
We only got to spend a couple of days in Florence, and didn’t actually SEE all that much – we didn’t go into any museums or cathedrals because we didn't want to spend all our time queueing – but I adored it. The restaurants are divine – the wine is SO CHEAP – and the shopping is out of this world.
Gelato every day. YUM.
I’m only half joking when I talk about going back towards the end of the year, because the markets are so fantastic that I really think I could get all my Christmas presents sorted in one fell swoop. Our hotel was about a minute from where the market starts – Hotel Eden, by the way, I really recommend (no frills, but friendly, comfortable and reasonably priced) – and I was like a kid in a candy store the whole time. Or a shopaholic in a bag store. SO MANY BAGS. As you guys know - remember Terence?
PS - I nabbed the above photo and that awesome gelato shot from my friend Russ - check out his flickr!
PPS - I made a Facebook page for my blog. Like it, would you? I'll be adding more Florence photos up there, too!
