Marshall and Bonnie travelled to Europe in late-November and early-December of 2004. While we first spent a few days in Paris, we were so busy sight-seeing that we didn't take too many pictures. Alas... We spent most of our time in northern Italy. We flew into Florence and checked into our time share condiminium at Loro Cuifena, about 35 Km by train to the southeast. The next day, we went to Venice (again by train, always a fun adventure) to explore with Bonnie's sister Nancy for three days. Then back to Florence for a couple of days. To end our first week in Italy, we went back to our condo, La Ferriera, for the weekend. It rained a lot and we got to know the town and region well by foot. The next week we traveled to several small Tuscan towns with our friends Mary Lee and Doug. We took day trips to Cortona, Arezzo and Sienna. We finished our trip with a day in Florence before flying home. We loved most the people of Europe, and the incredible cultures and societies that they have built over the millenia. Of course, the food was the high point. It did not matter where we ate: the people took their food very seriously, perparing and presenting it with incredible skill and love. Here are a few snapshots that we hope convey our adventure. Enjoy!
