Tuscany and Umbria

Last week I went to Italy on holiday to visit Florence, and the Tuscan countryside. Highlights were:

– Learning about renaissance art (including seeing a bunch of great sculptures in Florence)

– Strolling through Siena

– Experiencing some wonderful Tuscan views from places like Montalcino and Cortona

– Fitting in a stay with one of Kim’s friends at a vineyard in Umbria

The only downside was having to deal with the mad Italian drivers on the hair-breadth tuscan roads – speed limits, indicators and correct side-of-the-road all seem to be optional…

I’ve put some photos up here.
