Here's a few pics from the weekend. More should follow in the next couple of days.
Can I just say I think Italy hates us? Let me explain.
Wherever we go in Italy we always have some sort of trouble. Gas strikes, heavy traffic and this weekend? Train strike. We drove, but in Cinque Terre we overheard some people talking about a train strike. No big deal, we thought it started at midnight. Uh no. It started at 9:00 p.m. By some miracle we caught the last train to La Spezia. I'm so glad we did, because when I heard we might be stuck in the the next to farthest town from where we were staying I almost started to cry. No joke.
First up: The cheesy Pisa picture.
Next up is the non-cheesy picture. I was going for the 50's vintage postcard vibe
This was probably the most Tuscan picture I got. I think the best "typical" Tuscan views were south of Siena and we didn't go that far.
I loved the color of this Vespa
Our first seafood platter of the weekend. It may not look like it, but it was delish!
Monterosso (one of the Cinque Terre towns)
