Second stop is Florence. Staying at Hotel Silla from here will also see Sienna, Pisa and Lucca. I imagine this is the city that Susan will get lost in the museums and galleries and I will get lost in the streets. Thankfully we are going to buy cheap pre-[aid Italian phones so that when we are tired of being lost we can find each other.
DId you know that Florence was originally established by Julius Ceaser in 59BC? Nope neither did I.
I should point out to the well educated here that grammer and spelling is not my forte (neither is patience) - blame my school teachers. So I apologise in advance if you cringe as you read my posts and gasp at how different Susan and I are, how much more highly educated Susan is. The bottom line is I am MUCH nicer.
