There is no such thing as a free lunch in Siena, Italy.

This is a story about my day in Siena. I had already been in Italy for a couple of weeks but this guy took the cake for being the most, er, forward shall we say?Story below under the photos… Beautiful streets of Siena. Clearly this place is all about the sausage, smoked meat and PORK! […]

Train Day Italy to Germany Day 71

Today I truly don’t have much to report! I was train bound from 11:00 to 7:00, which should have been an easy feat, but was made more complicated by things out of my control. I was only supposed to change trains twice today, but wound up changing 6 times! There was a fire in one […]

Siena, Italy Day 66

Today was a near perfect day. Siena is just beautiful. It’s smaller than Florence, and I heard WAY less English being spoken here. Florence is great, but I swear it’s two thirds American.  I remember thinking that the last time I was here too.  I’m sure I’m lumping a few Canadians in there as well, […]
