I am deep into planning for Italy in September, and as our plans get more firm my excitement is threatening to put me over the edge. Must. Go. Here. Now.
The b&bs are booked, so the trip is starting to feel more real. One of my best college freinds and I are heading back to Europe, where we haven't been since our student days, to relax, explore, see, and savor. I know she could not be more excited either. When I sent her the links to the places I'd found, the pictures brought her to tears! Yes, Tuscany is that beautiful. We're going to split our time and stay for a few days each near Cortona and Siena, and in the meantime will be cruising around the countryside, stopping, discovering, strolling, biking and of course, sipping and tasting.
The pool stays open into September. I hope the weather will be warm enough to enjoy it.
I can imagine having a happy, sparkling party in this loggia. Who wants to come?
