In a previous post, I took the mystery out of my Japanese bathroom. Now it’s time to dive into the Italian bidet!

It’s easy to take day trips in Italy by bus or train, and Lucca was the first place I wanted to visit.

A rainy start to the day didn’t stop me from making the most of the last eight hours of my museum pass!

Florence is so compact, it’s easy to pack a lot of sightseeing into each day … and still make time for pizza!

Art! Gelato! So many steps! More art!

Some cities take a while to woo you, but I fell in love with Florence the moment I stepped out of the train station.
