Ok, things are starting to get exciting here. We leave in about 24 hours for our round the world trip and we genuinely can’t wait to jump on the first plane.
Yes, I know that jet lag is going to be absolutely awful flying the wrong way (west to east), but we’re planning on sleeping on the planes as much as we can to get used to the time at the locations we’re visiting.
So, up to last week our trip plan included a sneaky visit to the southern Italian region of Calabria, at the end of our three-week stay in Italy. Unfortunately that will not be possible this time round and so we had to look for an alternative. The place needed to be relatively close to Rome, because that’s where we’re leaving from, when departing Italy on our way back to Australia.
Introducing our new destination: Tuscany!! Yeah baby!
I am so so happy to go there! We will be visiting Florence for one day and then explore the Chianti region, as well as some other towns and villages nearby. All the while helping local restaurants and trattorie (inns) with testing out their delicious food and wine.
I know, someone has to sacrifice himself. Here I am. I’ll do it.
Anyway, here we go. Next post will be from the U.S. Ciao!!
