Sono Arrivata-Lucca

Yes, after two trains and much hauling of the heavy bag on and off said trains, I arrived in Lucca yesterday afternoon. I don’t really mind being responsible for my own luggage, but by the time I got to my B & B, I was simply exhausted! It might have helped if I’d taken notice of the actual address of the inn because then I would have stopped dragging the bag around sooner. I knew the general vicinity of its location, but not enough to find the front door. In the end, I made a phone call and said “dov’è?” (where are you) and the kind innkeeper came out and found me-I was mere steps away!

Thankfully I was not too tired to go out and start exploring. The streets were filled with shoppers, some tourists and lots of people riding bikes. I wound my way in and out of street after street, not even bothering to look at a map. How lost could I get? Some of the areas I remembered from my last visit, others were new and I tried to remember all the great food shops that I had seen. Of course I stopped into a few and bought various goodies for back in the room. The weather is spectacular and I can’t wait for my guests to arrive on Saturday. More later-I’m off for another walk.

The first photo is of the famous Torre Giunigi with its trees on top-we should probably climb up and take a look at the spectacular view from the top. The other is of the beautiful Chiesa di San Michele.

  1. My friend Gail, who is meeting you in Italy on Saturday told me about your blog and I LOVE IT!! What a great, adventurous life you must have. Enjoy her visit and be safe!

    • Barbara-you must be a good person if you’re a friend of Gail-she’s the best and it’s so exciting for me that she’s joining me here! I love Italy and have always wanted to share that with others. Doing this is a dream come true for me.
