The End Is Nigh Florence

The last full day for Florence and it was time to go and pay David a visit, I didn’t think it would be right to not go and see either the real one or the replica that stands outside the Palazzo della Signoria while here.

The first morning in Florence gave me flashbacks to home and the beautiful summer weather I had said goodbye to just a few months earlier. Feeling the aussie spirit I donned my aussie uniform (that’s shorts an a singlet to the rest of you) and made for a place I had marked as a must visit if I ever landed in Florence. This was of course Giardini di Boboli. Suzy […]
