Driving Tuscany, Italy

We love Italy and our driving loop through Tuscany in spring 2008 was great fun. I wrote a separate blog to document this trip.

This blog isn't written in story form, but more of a journal of what we did.

We stayed at a castle and an agritourismo, too. Starting in Pisa, we saw Siena, Florence, Pienza, Cortona, Arezzo and Lucca -- and many small villages, too.

Hiking and Driving the French Riviera

There's nothing prettier than the blue water and the villages in the South of France. We enjoyed day-hiking coastal trails with jaw-dropping views in May 2008. Another journal, rather than story.
