Over the next two weeks I have the pleasure of traversing south through the beautiful Italian countryside, visiting some major cities along the way and generally enjoying life.
As I type this blog, I am sitting on a train crossing the Tuscany countryside, looking at the Alps. It is stunning, and the aesthetic is exactly what I was hoping for. The only think missing is a glass of wine. Tomorrow, I will fix that by taking a winery tour. My hope is to find a comfortable chair, a tasty bottle, and my laptop to work on my dissertation while surrounded by the gorgeousness of this country.
If you ever find yourself with a desire to see the world, I highly recommend you look into the travel costs. In my experience it cost far less than I thought it would and I certainly would have traveled more had I been aware.
