Under the Tuscan Sun: Our "Down" Day


Sometimes it's nice to just take a day amidst the hustle and bustle of a sight-seeing vacation to relax and recharge your tired body. And that's exactly what we did on day 11 of our family vacation. Surrounded by olive trees and vineyards, our villa was the perfect place to unwind and enjoy each other's company without worrying about the train timetables and long touristy lines of the city. We spent the day lounging by our private pool, soaking up the Tuscan sun, and consuming insane amounts of pasta, wine, and cheese. It was pure Italian bliss!




The next day we woke up bright and early to enjoy our last sight-seeing adventure in Italy...Cinque Terra
Stay tuned, y'all!

  20. I'm going to sound like a total fatty right now, but I would eat all of that pasta in one sitting. My obsession with Italian food is pretty crazy.

    And whatever that is with the pesto on top..yeah, I would love to have that on my desk at work right now.

    pretty photos!
