    Week #6 - Home sweet home

    September 8, 2016 in Slovenia

    It's been six weeks since we sat in our car and started our roadtrip. 10000 km and 42 days later we're back home. Today is our first day back home and let me tell you, nothing beats your own bed and couch! Thor agrees, as he slept till 11😁 Home sweet home! And it's such a pleasure to come home to a clean apartment (thanks for setting up fresh bedding for us Raquel!).

    I'm sure we'll feel post-travel depression soon, as the trip was really AMAZING! We didn't watch tv a single day, I think that explains a lot 😊 We did a circle around France, but we could easily stay there and explore for another month or two, there's so much more to see! And for you miss Italy, we'll be definitely seeing you some more!

    There wasn't just nature and places that we loved. We also stayed at 7 different great houses and met a lot of nice people! (Thanks for having us! And thanks for the wine-we have it enough for the whole year! But when I think again, it will be perfect for our cheese and wine party tomorrow😋) Home exchange really gave us that something more that we never experienced before. We loved it! 🏠

    I know it's been only a day, but can't help to think any other question than 'Where to next?' 😉

    Lucca

    September 5, 2016 in Italy

    Old city surrounded by the walls, which are now pedestrian promenades. We took a walk through the cobbled streets and discovered Lucca is not as small as we first assumed. Aparently this is a very old city, with big churches, towers and squares. Not to mention all the stores and cafés. Lovely.

    Pisa tower

    September 5, 2016 in Italy

    Who doesn't know the leaning tower of Pisa? Funny how one man's mistake in 11th century lead to world famous attraction. Beside the leaning bell tower(that you can actually visit!) there are also cathedral and baptistry on the square. Amazing sights. And let me tell you, it looks bigger in person😉

    Florence

    September 4, 2016 in Italy

    Everything seems big and magnificent, art is literally on every corner. There's amazing bridge with houses called Ponte Vechio, where are now expensive jewelry stores. If you want to make a statement that's probably the place. Go big or go home right:) Florence are definitely beautiful and a must see city, even though they don't give that tipical Tuscany vibe. They offer a lot - great walks, views, museums and places to eat. It is a little bit too big and crowdy for us, but we really enjoyed it!Read more

    San Gimignano

    September 3, 2016 in Italy

    Another day in stunning Tuscany. The sights just don't stop to amaze us. And the views... San Gimignano is a unique medival town you spot from miles away as It has this special towery city skyline. It is very beautiful inside too. With narrow streets shops and markets. Belissimo.

    Siena, Italy

    September 2, 2016 in Italy

    Well this is the first bigger town in Tuscany and we are already convinced. You can really feel the renesanse in the air. The architecture is stunning and so are the streets inside the wall with all that cute shops. It was hard not to spend everything here. Thor was once again in the center of attention as kids and random couples wanted to pet him. I bet he felt like a star :)

    It's funny, that Siena with big Duomo and Piazza is so large, contrary to small villages we passed by today, but somehow has this Tuscany vibe. You can spot this town miles away, as orange-brown color gives it away. Impressive.Read more

    Chianti drive

    September 2, 2016 in Italy

    The heart of Tuscany as some say. Rolling hills with wineyards, olive trees and castles(or what is left of them). What an amazing sights. Wow. Just wow. We really had to stop every few kilometers just to take in the views. From here comes the original Chianti wine, if you were wondering :) For real classic type of wine look for the black rooster sticker on the bottle. You're welcome :)

    For anybody who wants to explore and see the real Tuscany, just take the S222 road from Florence to Siena (possibly make the circle as al the roads are very scenic). Prepare to be amazed.Read more

    Week #5

    September 1, 2016 in Italy

    We're on a roll. 5 weeks! Together, in a car. And we didn't killed each other. Yep, must be true love 😉 Jokes aside, we expirienced so much already that some of the places we visited seems like ancient history. Luckily we keep it all here on our blog ☺

    Roads we travelled were amazing, breath taking, sometimes spiral and difficult, but all together made our roadtrip fun.

    Our last stop, under the Tuscan sun, just began and we're hungry for more(italian food in particulary)! Bring it on, Italy!Read more
