Arrived in Siena yesterday. After a couple of days of rain in Florence, the sun is shining and it is getting hot. Siena is very different to Florence. It feels much more ‘tourist town’ than the real city Florence was. I really like it for that reason though - loads of interesting shops to explore and amazing architecture at every turn. We have done some of the major sights today including some time at Il Campo - the major Piazza in Siena and reputedly one of the best Piazza’s in Italy. Also, seen Siena’s Duomo, which is highly adorned in typical Catholic Church style. Enjoyed another ice cream too (working my way through the flavours!).
I love visiting different countries - seeing amazing sights, getting to do new, exciting things every day, learning about other cultures and sampling the local food. I have been lucky enough to travel to quite a few countries, as shown on the map below, but there is so much more to see. My "to visit" list is long and always growing! Hopefully many more countries on my map will go red soon!
