父がフィレンゼで 数週間マンションを借りている事で 遊びに行って来ました。実を言うと 結婚32年で初めて父と旅行しました。嬉しかった!ダーリンと次女、次男、ミラノに入り車を借りて 色々な町を寄りながらフィレンゼに入りました。久しぶりのヨーロッパの春が綺麗でした。フィレンゼで二日過ごし、親孝行をして、ピサの斜塔を見に行き、感激!!想像以上に素晴らしいもので、ピサの町の人々も優しくほのぼのとした感じでした。ジェノバまで車で走り、やはり、港街のためか 少しがらを悪く感じました。終日はミラノからスイスに入りルツルンを見てからコモ湖に戻り、カーフェリーでベラジオまで渡り、コモ湖に面したレストランで夕食を頂きました。幸せな旅でした・・・

これから時差ボケはどうなるか???怖いね・・・

Dad is renting an apartment in Florence for a few weeks, so we (JM, daughter 2 and son 2) thought we would check out how they are faring. I have been married for 32 years and this is the first trip I have had with my father…….very much overdue!! We flew into Milan, rented a car and drove through Parma, Bologna on our way to Florence. We spent two full wonderful days in Florence, mostly on our feet. I wouldn’t recommend  driving into Florence….the streets in the city are hell to get around!! Then off we went to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa….I wasn’t disappointed. It was amazing. Everyone in the tower areas was walking around with big grins, the police were extremely friendly and the food wasn’t even expensive, something you would expect in such a tourist mecca like Pisa. Next on our itinerary was Genova. I would say it is a tad tough after Florence. We did have a problem navigating ourselves around, maybe we will try it again on another trip. On our last day we drove into Luzern in Switzerland from Milan( the kids said they didn’t want to go but when they arrived they were amazed at the beauty) and finished off with dinner at the Bellagio on the Como Lake……….how could it get any better than that???

Home now, will I be able to sleep tonight??? That is the question!!!
