Tuscany

Finally we had a holiday just for the three of us!

We stayed in a gorgeous farm next to Siena.

Every day we woke up and went for a walk in the middle of a beautiful painting. Stunning views!

We went to see the medieval fairytale San Gimignano, then absolutely surreal gothic Siena. Volterra is a great medieval town but the serpentine drive up the hills was a – as Warwick described it – one way ticket to vomit city for Lula. No wonder it was one of the last towns to surrender to Florence in 1361!

Cecina was less splendid but Lula loved the sea! And Pisa was definetly the least nice of all places, but we had to see the leaning tower!

On top of that, Italy ( the first country in Europe to completly ban smoking in public places ) is the most child friendly country you can imagine. Everyone stopped and talked to Lula. She got so many presents! From eggs for breakfast to ice cream and little toys. She has a strong fan base there. Lula loves ice cream and pizza, pasta and gnocchi, especially with spinach!

And she has her first tan! Very delicate one because of sun protection but still there. And she could sit in a swimming pool all day now!

And of course Italians won the world cup and it was great being there for it! They went mentally happy after the match!
