Postcards from Florence
Happy Monday to everybody! I am back home after a whirlwind of a weekend in Florence: I am feeling much more exhausted than I did before I left… This is the city in Italy, along with Rome, that is perfect for wandering about, admiring art, taking photographs, eating… Personally, I do not mind any of these activities but an intense weekend in the city allows no time for rest whatsoever! Stay tuned for my full post about Florence with my tips and reflections on this gorgeous city.
