What a quick, short trip in Italy! We packed a fair amount of sights and food into our four days. It was unfortunately hot and sunny which led to me looking awful; long sleeves (either a cardigan or a long sleeved shirt) and a baseball hat. Or an umbrella. I am aware of sunscreen, which I used on my face, but the problem with the rest of my body is that it's so hard to get every square millimeter of skin and then you have to keep applying it. But I survived! I loved having Gail Carriger's and Elizabeth Gilbert's voices in my head (as both of them have books where some settings are in Italy) and that made it all the more dreamy.
I hope you have enjoyed following along with my trip! I'm not done yet. I have more pictures and a little write up of my favorite activities. Also see London, Paris, and Switzerland.
