So, this is it.

My long awaited Florentine dream

Some of you may know how much I have wanted to visit Florence.

Some of you may not.

Did it start with reading ‘A room with a view’?

Quite possibly, corny I know.

All said and done, this has been a long standing dream of mine; to visit possibly the most beautiful place in the world (in my view)

So, in my fortieth year, after much planning I’m going.

Settled into my airport hotel the night before I fly to spend two days in Verona before travelling by train to Florence.

Who knows what it will bring? Hopefully wonderful architecture, warm sun, and a newfound love for everything Italian
