So from Venice we headed off to Tuscany (this pic is us on the train). We were originally scheduled to arrive in Florence and then rent a car to drive the last 40 minutes outside of town. Alas... the Italian train strikes again. The rental car place closed at 7pm and we arrived at... 7:15. Oh well, no big deal. We got a hotel for the night in Florence with a plan to leave the next morning...
During the night John came down with a terrible case of the stomach flu. He literally didn't get out of bed for the next 24 hours. At the time we thought maybe it was food poisoning because it came on him all of the sudden and I was perfectly fine. The next morning he was feeling markedly better, so we finally got our car and headed out to Tuscany.
