The days have been filled with beautiful sights, wonderful images, sculptures and paintings, and awesome food & wine!
I've expanded my knowledge of Giotto, and satisfied a curiosity about his work which was born when I visited the Scrovegni Chapel last year. My eyes were opened to the works of Fra Bartolomeo, Fra Lippi, and Cimabue to name a few. I have explored every corner of the Uffizi and Museo San Marco.
I've learned that the train system sometimes is not as perfect as I thought it was, and I'm not taking about the unexpected strikes in Italy. The bus system can be a little tricky if you don't know where you are going. I have validated what I've know all along: "I suck at reading maps"! , so thank God for the little blue dot on my google maps app that tells me where I want to go and if I'm going the right way.
