Eastbound and Down
Some of you out there followed our travels in Europe back in 2012. We managed to see London, Amsterdam, Paris, and Rome that time. Travis continued on to Florence and Orvieto, Italy. We missed so many amazing sites, but we always planned on going back for more.
Well we're headed back this Tuesday. We're eastbound and down with a new passenger on board.

Willa will be turning one in Italy this summer and we are so very terrified excited to be enjoying Florence with her.
This trip is less about pleasure and more about business. Since my subject of interest in graduate school is southern Italy, we thought it would be a mutually beneficial to return to Italy so I could add substance to my research and enjoy living in a different country for a short time. It is a great opportunity for my education and for our own travel ambitions.
I can't guarantee very much excitement on this go-around. We're staying in apartment in the heart of historic Florence and, for the most part, will be staying local. We have a few trips planned though. We hope to make it to Pisa, Milan, Venice, Rome, and Postiglione (the hometown of my great-grandfather). Anything else will be a bonus.
As before, any tips, hints, or suggestions are always encouraged and accepted.
Travis, Lisa, and Willa-Anne
