One morning at the last moment, we decided to go on an adventure to Lucca for the day, which is a short 1.5-hour train ride from Florence. Here’s how we learned to purchase the train tickets for such a short, and impromptu, trip!
As much as we love traveling the world, the Traveling Flâneurs have some big news. We’ve decided to settle down a bit and create a home base from which to launch many future travels. We’re building a house! In Vermont! We’re excited to have you come on this journey with us while we figure out how to build a home while being 500 miles away.
We have big plans for 2019; to live intentionally while spending time with the people who matter, and cooking more adventurously! I don’t know about you, but good friends and good food help keep me grounded, especially when going through big transitions.
With such big plans for the year, we have been thinking about how to set ourselves up for success in the new year. Read on to find out what some of our favorite things are for achieving our best year yet…
If there’s one question we get a lot, it’s how to shop for leather in Florence. We have been to Florence enough to know that it’s not always easy! Leather shops are a dime a dozen in this town, and if you aren’t careful, you can return home with a piece that will likely fall apart in no time. But good news — we’ve done the research so you don’t have to! We’re going to run through the top tips and tricks we’ve found for purchasing some leather to love while in Florence, Italy!
There is so much of Rome to see. But if you’re like us, sometimes you need a break from the fast-paced city.
Enter a bike tour to the Appian Way. We can’t imagine any other way to see it!
We met at 10:30 in the morning for a lengthy day of biking. Once we got outfitted with our bikes, helmets, and rain ponchos (which were thankfully never needed!), we were off to see the catacombs, Appian Way, and aqueducts!
Word about the best sandwich in all of Florence is out.
I’m writing this while drooling in line with about 518,491,153 of my closest friends (give or take a few million…)
It’s been about 20 minutes. Am I any closer to the door? Questionable. Is it ridiculous that I’m waiting this long for a sandwich at 8pm on a Saturday? Probably.
Is it worth it? Why yes, yes it is.
