Tuscany – Day 5
Date: Fri 21st June
Temperature: Pleasantly warm
Highlight: Susan’s Birthday
This is our last day of relaxation and of course its a special day for the celebration of a very big milestone in Sue’s life before we hit the last stage of our European adventure! It has been pure indulgence having these last few days to relax and enjoy the company of good friends in Tuscany. It will be hard to get back into the full-on travel and sightseeing mode.
Today was Sue’s day, as long as it included a Gelato, which it did. So we all waited patiently for her to emerge from her extra long sleep in before breakfasting (Some of us were getting a little worried that we would miss breakfast altogether!).
After a leisurely breakfast and relaxing by the pool (you may see a pattern occurring here). It was time to venture out to another local village called Montelupo for some afternoon Gelato and a Cappuccino and some pastries and… (We’re too embarrassed to go on, particularly when we constantly get ribbed by the old man that we will be up for excess luggage on our return trip!)
On our return it was time to turn the Birthday celebrations up a notch with pre dinner (happy hour) drinks and nibbles before dining alfresco style and finishing off with a pre ordered Tiramisu Birthday cake. Luckily we dined at the Villa’s Restaurant so we could all waddle back to our Villa’s to recover.
A great day was enjoyed by all.
Happy Birthday Sue!
