Planning our Tuscan Adventure

WoooHoooo! The countdown is on...just 13 days till our next adventure. June 13th we'll be heading to Italy again. The plan is to spend the first four nights in Cortona. We'll be taking a balloon ride with Robert Etherington of Ballooning in Tuscany...can't wait. We'll also be spending a day cooking with Alessandra Federici in Cortona...we've heard wonderful things about her.
The next five days we'll be based in Florence. I'm going to meet my man "David" and eat plenty of gelato. :) We haven't really planned more than one thing per day...we want to really experience Florence the slow way. I've spent a lot of time reading the SlowTravel forum, and I hope I've learned how to take my time and become part of my surroundings.
Life is good...let the packing begin!

Welcome to Blogging, Lisa. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do. DH & I traveled slowly through Tuscany and Florence in 07. It was a wonderful trip. I'll be looking forward to hearing about your travels!

Welcome to the world of blogging.
I love your header photo of Rome, gorgeous!
Safe travels!


This sounds like a fabulous trip! Cortona is lovely and Alessandra is very nice. (I love her shop!)

Have fun planning!

Terry (teaberry):

We just returned from Florence and Cortona (and Umbria) this past April. I will look forward to reading your blog and hearing all about your impressions of Tuscany.

Please say hi to Alessandra from me.


It won't be long till you are in beautiful Italy!

I hope you have a wonderful trip the SLOW way and that you will post about your adventures.


Your header picture is wonderful. Of course you will love every minute in Tuscany. As many times as I've been there, I've taken a balloon ride so am looking forward to your report. Have fun!
