Cars & Florence

Driving south

View Europe 2015 on Adamtrumble's travel map.

We walked into town and had coffee. Justin worked out that we had walked for about 38 hours in not much more than two weeks - that's not including small walks.

Then it was off to Lamborghini for some petrol-head stuff.


We then plotted a route to Florence off the A1 toll road - the distance wasn't much greater, but it took almost twice as long due to ridiculously low speed limits. We weren't in a hurry and parts of the drive were lovely.

Until today, I have done all the driving, but Justin had a go for about 30 minutes today.


Driving into Florence, we appreciated Austrlian roads - at one intersection four lanes turned into three with no indication of who should go where.

At a major roundabout, we wanted to get off and a guy in a shit-box just pushed in, while a swarm of scooters passed on all sides!

We found our AirBNB apartment - there had been some problems with the booking. The owner's grandson explained she hated the English and we had been identified as such. When she fould out we were Australian, it was sorted.

We walked into the touristy part of the town for a while.


We had a great dinner at a local restaurant, followed by a gelato, which was amazing!
