Tuscany in Pictures

We have had the most awesome week in Tuscany. We decided to drive back yesterday as it was hard to find a hotel for a few nights for a reasonable price. Apparently this week is the biggest vacation week for Italians and per old customs you must spend Monday (some saints day) by the ocean. Hence our early departure. The kids were amazing, and the 10 hour drive was rather painfree.

With that said, warning for picture overload:

Thankfully separated with two sets of stairs, so the kids never escaped without our attention to go down to the pool.

And what is better than renting a house together with people who like to cook gourmet meals for both lunch and dinner every day? Fresh fish from the local markets, lots of cheeses, breads, salami, grilled Tuscany steaks, lots of veggies and tons of fruits. And of course pizza! Amazing people, and luckily one of them is the kids uncle:)
