We Flunked Florence...



ahh friends, we arrived in florence and pitied the poor city for having to compete with the scenic wonder that was cinque terre. we had high expectations, visions of leather goods danced in our heads. but we were sorely mistaken. our hostel, inappropriatly deemed the "dany house B&B" was a smokey, mangey, and altogether a travelers nightmare. our accomadations fell way below our expectations but nevertheless we set out to see florence with a pep in our step. was it the crowded streets? the sunglasses worn at night? (if the italians could, they would create sunglasses large enough cover to their entire faces, they are seriously sporting blu blockers these days, no joke.) or was it the lack of fashionable bags and shoes we had our hearts set on? or perhaps it was our traveling ambition was at an all time low. we bypassed the famous sites and priceless art, we just didnt have it in us. we packed our bags and left florence a day early and headed to rome to once again recapture that traveling high. oh florence could it have been different?? Florence favorites...

ummm...we've got nothing...

oh no! so sad that firenze didn't go better for you ladies. on the bright side, though, i think this was your first bad experience since starting your trip, no? all things considered, that's not too shabby - i mean, you have been on the road for over a month now. hope the next spot goes a bit more to your liking...can't wait to read all about it!
