Italy travelogue, part VI

Everyone needed to recharge with looooong naps. I never nap, so the  fact I went out for two hours means the walking, walking, walking of the last  couple of days earned one.
 
We polished off the recharge with room service. Just perfect. 
 
Added more recharging this morning with yoga to work out all the  kinks and power up.
 
We have the windows open. I just heard what had to be a big family  walk by–chattering in Italian, over and across each other. Then someone  strolling by whistling a happy tune.
 
Today’s main goal is the Uffizi this afternoon, so I expect we’ll  get a late start out of here this morning. Main shopping goal for me is to find  something for Kayla and McKenna as I’ve covered the rest of the grandkids. 
 
It’s a very fortunate thing I left lots of room in one of my  suitcases for purchases. But most have been gifts. Well, except for two pairs of  sandals, two handbags and a scarf for me. But what can you do? But it’s pretty  great to have whacked down my Christmas list so well in August.
 
BW’s heading to breakfast, my signal to hit the shower. And hope it  doesn’t hit back.

  1. Hahaha! I hope the shower doesn’t hit back either!
    SOOO impressed with the Christmas list cross-offs. In August! With MINIMAL damage done to the luggage space due to personal purchases! Boom!
    And Yay! Shopping for girls! I get so excited when I get to shop for my friends’s daughters. I have two sons — the little girl inside me doesn’t get to come out & play so often 😉

  2. I love reading your travel blog – it’s almost like being there with you. Thanks so much for sharing your trip with us. Years ago when I was in Rome, I was told they don’t have any good shoes in Italy as they export them all to other countries. Now I know I should have gone to Florence!

  3. I just want to thank-you for doing this travel log and while it’s not the same as going there myself, I love seeing it through your eyes!!!

  4. Hi Laura I really enjoy these posts Thanks much for passing them along. Listening to Whiskey Beach as I type this post looking forward to ho Nora solves the mystery of Lindsey’s death. Don’t have any clues yet that are conclusive hard to stop listening & sleeping.

  5. I hope you get your suitcases wrapped when you fly back. The one time I didn’t all my purchases were stolen out of my suitcase. I was not a happy camper when I got home. I also use zip ties now. Good luck.
