Off-road trip to a castleOctober 7, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C
Martha and Paul headed for home at the crack of dawn this morning. 😢 But John and I and Leah and Mike had one more day in Tuscany! We decided to drive through Chianti to see Castello di Brolio and have lunch at the nearby osteria. Mike was delighted to find that a local group of Ferrari enthusiasts had gathered there. What's not to like about a parking lot full of Ferraris?
On display at the castle was an art installation of flower buds that reflect the castle tower. Try enlarging this photo and hopefully you'll be able to see this detail.
We took the "long way" back, on a series of unpaved roads through what we later realized was probably private property... the views were stunning!
Tomorrow we fly home. Hopefully we (and our bags) will make our connection in Paris with no issues. Martha and Paul were an hour late getting out of Florence this morning because of an extra bag on board. They had to unload and rescan all the bags. Sigh. The worst part of travel is going to and from. But there's definitely another trip to Italy in our future.Read more
