The Armchair Traveler Goes to Tuscany


Can you tell the travel bug is biting me hard lately? It doesn't help that I'm looking at my photos and wishing for an adventure.
It's sad that all these never-before-seen photos are trapped in my computer!
Today, I release them! I hope you enjoy....

Florence.
There just never is enough time there. So many nooks and crannies to explore!







The Tuscan Countryside.
Absolutely breathtaking!








The Churches.
My inner Catholic comes out big-time in Italy!




The Food.
I don't need to tell you how fantastic the food is!






The Wine.
Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino--it's all good!




Next, The "Armchair Traveler" goes to Provence!

Pin It!

Delores, I'll travel along with you anywhere. Thanks for releasing these amazing photos. I'm just home from France and need to get my photos edited and out of the computer. It all takes so much time.
I look forward to traveling to Provence with you soon.....Sarah

Each one takes me to that spot if only briefly.
Greve is where I do plan to go...one day.

Delores,
I've never been to Italy so this was truly a treat for me. Most of my friends have been but fail to show their pictures. This is wonderful.
Thank you,
Karen

Delores...this is MEAN!!!!!!!! Now you have me wanting, daydreaming and obsessing about going away to Italy!! I mean I am always in the mood to go and lately really am in the mood for a serious vacation but these pictures just put me over the edge, they are just incredible. Boy do they tell a beautiful (and delicious) story!! Thanks for sharing...sooooo beautiful! Nothing quite like quite like the sounds, sights and smells of Italy.

Beautiful photos....the photo of the Tuscany countryside reminds me of California's Wine Country.
