I have discovered that pictures are not coming through, darn! I think it is the slow wi-fi at our hotel. I have great pictures from our day in Florence so will try to post tomorrow or at our next hotel!

Love Tuscany

We arrived safe and sound in Rome about 9:30 Friday morning and immediately headed by bus to a lovely winery in Montepulciano. Luckily they took us to the top in smaller cars. The climb would have killed us. 

After wine tasting with meats, cheese and bread, we headed to our hotel to meet the other 42 people in our group. They all went to Venice a few days before. We're staying for three days in the ancient castle owned by the Medicis. Very cool place. Tomorrow we head to Florence. 

Beautiful sights along the road. 

Stopping by way to pick olives. Not really

I was afraid I would miss fall but it's here too!

Largest barrel ever.

Our hosts, Andreas and Christian. 

More beautiful scenery as we approached.

Leaving on a jet plane!

Hi all!  We made it to the airport and through security. Woo-hoo. And our gate is at the very end so we are even closer to Rome😊  We have about an hour before we board and then depart at 6:30. I have high hopes of sleeping on the plane since I woke up at 5:00!! This morning.

Looking forward to sharing some wonderful moments with friends! And the sharing with all our friends we left behind.

Have a good week all!
