It was a long day with flights and a 2+ hour drive from Florence to Castello di Casole but ended with a wonderful dinner. Foie Gras, pork sausage + fresh pasta, lamb + potatoes and semifreddo. Wine too.
The kids were great travelers. The airline lost Eva’s luggage and she took it in stride and Havana was creative enough to help her get dressed anyway.
It was a good flight on Lufthansa, although the food wasn’t very good except for the cheese plate. Me and the kids were all in one row and Gay was a couple rows back.
After a 2-hour layover in Frankfurt and a 1-hour flight over the Swiss Alps, we landed in Florence (at the Amerigo Vespucci airport, I love it!). I think this is my first flight ever on an Embraer, an E-90, plane.
It took a long time to pick up our rental car, the first wasn’t big enough to fit our luggage (we couldn’t fit 4 bags in a trunk that claims to fit 5) so we ended up with a Skoda Superb station wagon. Driving an Italian car in Italy is more appropriate anyway.
Then we drove for 2 hours to our place in Tuscany.
