Tuscan meanderings

I’m quite behind in keeping up to date with everything we have been doing so will do a few mainly photographic entries in an attempt to catch up. This is the downside of packing so much into a holiday! 

The beautiful town of Assisi, home of St Francis was our next stop. As in the Sistine Chapel  there was no photography allowed inside. Instead we walked, marvelled, and listened to our guide tell the story of an amazing man whose Christian walk is as powerful and challenging today as it must have been all those centuries ago. There is something that lifts the soul as you wander this ancient hilltop city, a sense of the continuity of the family of faith.





Then an overnight stay in the beautiful town of Perugia. We decided to skip the organised tour of the town and had a peaceful evening watching the sunset while enjoying cocktails.




One of my favorite places so far has been our next stop, the hilltop town of San Gigminano. Just ancient and beautiful. I can’t explain how content it makes me feel to spend time visiting these towns, wandering these cobblestone streets and seeing the sun-soaked buildings. Coming from such a young country it’s as though I have been starved for this feeling of history and antiquity. We only had an afternoon but had plenty of time to sit in the sun, eat wild boar ragu and smooth creamy gelato.

Because I am a traveller I can look down on the birds and up at the fishes. I collect moments and can venture back in time to lost worlds. I seize life and simultaneously escape it at will. Because I am a traveller I envy no man at home.
