I wonder what is behind this gate near San Miniato?

The biggest step for me was booking my flight… that would finally make the trip real. Actually spending money on a flight, sending a deposit for an apartment rental and making sure there was sufficient funds in my travel savings account… that made it very real indeed! This was a lot different from saying, dreamily, “Someday, I’m going to go to Italy and France, someday…” as I browsed on the internet, looking and looking.

Ryan Truscott is a friend of mine and a manager with Flight Center. It is a company that guarantees travellers the lowest fares, so I put him to the test and he passed with flying colors! He booked 2 flights, because of the distance I had to travel from my home to Florence. The first flight was with the very delightful and very familiar airline, Westjet, from Edmonton to Toronto. The second flight was with Air Canada on a Lufthansa flight going over and an Air Canada flight coming home. The flight was from Toronto – Frankfurt – Florence, and then Paris – Toronto coming back. I didn’t make reservations for my flight from Florence to Paris, because I was planning on finding my own way via train, plane or car.

My flight to Florence cost $960CAN and the Westjet flight was just a little under $400CAN.
