One of the great things about being a travel blogger is meeting others on the road. Just by chance I was on the train on my Kindle and noticed Breakaway Backpacker had tweeted he was also heading to Florence.
Since deciding not to pursue endless travel it seemed that everything was going my way.
Jaime is hilarious and scandalous. He blogs without fear or apologies about topics I would never dare to write about.
We looked around for lunch, but it was 2pm and we were both accustomed to Spain where lunch and dinner are both late. This isn’t true in Italy so most restaurants are closed, but we found a tiny restaurant on a backstreet with locals.
I splurged on a $12 lunch that included salad, spaghetti with white truffles, beef carpaccio and 1/2 litre of wine.
Let me tell you 1/2L each is a dangerous thing because after lunch we headed straight to a wine shop.
