Thank you Columbus Day!  We’ve just had an amazing weekend driving through Italy up to Tuscany. WOW!  What a beautiful part of the country – while I’ve yet to see anything remotely ugly here – this one sure tops the list of stunning.  Rolling hills of vineyards, sunflowers, and small farmhouses as far as the eyes can see.

We loved our little agriturismo ”farm house” that we stayed in outside of San Gimignano in Tuscany.  Talk about romantic – and the food – 5 course meals with all you can drink wine pairings… UMMM this is why we came to Italy!?!

The little towns around the area were so much fun to explore.

But my favorite part was Siena – we’ll be back to spend a long weekend alone in this fabulous city full of so much history.   Love this town.

And then there was the entire reason we visited this region – the wine….  we visited several wineries in the Chianti region and a yummy gelato shop….

After 12 cases of wine, our luggage and car seat barely fit in the car – so we had to cut our winery trips short… till next time… I think we might need a bigger car!
