Change of plans….. My trip from Cinque Terre to Sicily this month is on hold, indefinitely. The chapters of my book need attention and as you can imagine, book trumps travel.
With this unexpected revision, I rented an apartment in the centre of Florence to be closer to the pulse of this inspirational city. I would have stayed in the garden indefinitely, however, all the apartments with Federica are booked for the month of October.
In a moment of brilliance, I contacted my landlord, Manuele from 5 years ago, to my delight, he had an apartment unrented for October. It was meant to be.
I’m living on Via San Niccolo, a quaint Florentine street a block from the river. It’s not a blissful garden, however, I’m a hop skip and a jump from restaurants, shops, the cobblestone streets of Florence and my shy and stoic boyfriend David.
The scenic views of Piazzale Michelangelo and bells of The Duomo will sooth my meandering soul.
