  1. Sure I would like to dream some more......

    I am in the progress of planning my next trip to Italy, and this time I'll finally go to Firenze (late April). Do you have a bed to recommend? May be we can meet?

  2. Britt-Arnhild,
    I will be in Geneva in March, hoping to travel through France and Italy on my way home. Then, I don't know: I applied to graduate school and am waiting for the results of the interview. *keepingmyfingerscrossed*
    I certainly can help you with finding a place to stay!

  9. The persimmon is magnificent as are the olives and the grapes and the steps. I'll try to hold that last image for the beginning of my dreams tonight.
