    Plane views

    May 26, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    A few shots from the plane window while in flight :)

    The first shot is an aerial view of the Alps. Seeing how gorgeous they are made us consider changing the tail end of our Italy trip to include a train ride on Switzerland's golden pass line. 😍 i love trains!

    The second and third shots are our from our descent into the Venice airport.

    Getting to Florence (:

    May 26, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Somewhere in the sky, we decided to forego spending time in Venice and instead head straight to Florence after landing.

    To get there, we took a bus (5 euro pp) to get from the airport to Venezia Santa Lucia railway station (Venice island), and then a high speed train (50 euro pp, up to 300 km/hr) to get to Firenze Santa Maria Novella railway station (Florence).

    I love train rides. 😍😍

    "The American coffee shop experience"

    Bahaha! Of course the first place we end up stopping when getting to Florence is an "Americanized" coffee house. I loved the quote on the wall, and the shirt I wore today complimented it too well to not share.

    What was American about it, you ask? Well, there were alot of frozen sugary drinks on the menu. And they served Arizona ice tea in a can (random). Oh! And colorful bendy straws. That was the deal breaker.

    Must Try: Iced american coffee - but no milk and no sugar.

    Mercato Centrale

    "Mangiare per vivere e non vivere per mangiare"

    😍😍😍

    I loved this market and have no doubt I'll be back at least one more time before leaving Florence. The food options include ''Italy's best pizza" from Sud's, meat and cheese plates, fresh pasta, desserts, coffee, and wine of course. Did I mention Paleo is on hold again for this vacay?

    Must Try: The canoli
