Casina di Rosa 10-2-10 to 10-9-10

For our week in Tuscany, we stayed at Casina di Rosa. This is owned by Gloria and Marcel, and it's a wonderful house to rent. This was our second stay here. We like how centrally it's located. It's in the...

10/8/10 Sorano, Sovana, and Pitigliano

I've gotten really behind on blogging. I just got where it felt like a chore and I just couldn't do it. Tonight, I'm sitting in our apartment in Paris, and I'm going to try to get caught up. It's hard...

10-7-10 Montepulciano

Yesterday I woke up with one thought-I’m actually tired of food. And wine. My stomach is now pulsating-in, out, in, out. It gets bigger with each meal, then shrinks a little as I sleep. The problem is that it isn’t...

10-6-10 Monte Oliveto Maggiore and Pienza

10-3-10 Siena

10-2-10 The drive from Bevagna to Civitella Marittima

Today we checked out of our apartment in Bevagna, and began the drive to Civitella Marittima. We could have gone the easy way, but no, we decided we wanted the slower scenic view. We passed through some majestic places,...

MEMORIES FROM A YEAR AGO - A TRIP TO ITALY

Last year, at the end of September/first of October, my husband and I had a wonderful trip to Italy. I am missing the beauty and culture of that country (and the food!), and am looking forward to our next visit....
