On June 12, 2009 we sold our house. The next day we left on a trip to Italy. We spent 9 glorious days based in Cortona for 4 days, and Florence for the other 5 days. We had a wonderful time cooking with Alessandra Federici in Cortona, and floating over the Tuscany Valley with Ballooning in Tuscany.
You can read all about it in my trip report. We had such a great time we're already planning the next one.
