Ah, dreamy Tuscany! During most of our trip in Italy we used trains to get around, but we wanted a car to explore the Tuscan countryside, so in Florence we picked up a rental and spent a few days driving around and exploring towns. We stayed in an agriturismo, which was fun. Some favorite moments in Tuscany:

-visiting an ancient fortress.

-stopping at a cheese shop in Pienza and meeting the owner and her son. She was wonderful to talk with (we mostly spoke Spanish with a few Italian words thrown in there, and she only spoke Italian, so we used lots of gestures and it was fun because she really made an effort to communicate). She offered us cheese samples with bread and olive oil, which made a nice lunch since the restaurant we had planned to eat at was closed. (Note: although I eat a mostly vegan diet, I do eat cheese when traveling in Europe.)

-stumbling upon a luxury car show. I’m not a car fan, but Waldir likes nice cars, and I liked seeing Waldir enjoy that. 🙂

-doing yoga at the agriturismo, overlooking the countryside as the sun set. ❤

-I also liked the cats at the agriturismo. 😉

-eating at a michelin restaurant.
