Buongiorno Firenzie!

Ciao, Ciao!

After some 17 hours of the most nerve racking travel we've ever experienced together, I am happy to report we had a safe and punctual landing in Florence!! I can already tell the trip was well worth it.

Willa handled the travel with as much grace and ease as a 11-month baby can. She did not loose her cool on the plane and managed some play and sleep time. She was even complimented by a passenger for her good behavior.

We were not so fortunate. When we landed we were extremely sleep deprived. Lucky for us, our apartment was not far.

After finding our new apartment the three of us took a much needed nap. Feeling slightly more rested, we went out for our first meal of risotto and spaghetti. Delicious! Willa is really enjoying Italy's latte.

We meandered for a little while the streets were clear before heading home for a good night sleep.

The Il Porcelliono (Piglett) is a landmark in Florence. You are supposed to place a coin in the pig's jaws and let it drop in the grate below for good luck. You also rub the nose to ensure a return trip to Florence. The nose is bright and shiny from all of the visitors' desires to return to Florence.

We're still settling in, but Florence is a beautiful city bustling with life. We're looking forward to much more exploration in the weeks to come.

Buonasera!!

Travis, Lisa, and Willa
