So today started early and I jumped a train south to Florence, where I heard there was some cool stuff to see. Seeing how I don’t have an Italy guidebook, just a few hostel flyers I picked up in Gryon, I didn’t know exactly what to expect. The only pre-trip reading I did about Italy was for Milan and since plans have change now I find myself wondering Italy without much guidance. Sure is fun and tasty though!
I got to Florence about four in the afternoon, walked to the hostel (or Ostello in Italian) about 200 yards from the train station and dropped my bag. I headed out for some lunch and to find a computer to upload all my blog for yesterday. The first was easy, (I had a ham and mushroom pizza) the second required me to spend most of the afternoon finding a computer that would play nice with my blogging program (I think it was the 3rd one).
Anyhow this felt like an uneventful day, it was even quite cold and windy. For those of you following I think after Rome (this weekend) with Matt I am going to fly to Athens, Greece (the flight is $100, much cheaper than the train/ferry combo) then work my way north through Bulgaria and Romania. That is if I don’t stumble across some hot lady that slows me down.
