future plans in the works

So despite that fact that we are not yet fully planned for our summer 2010 adventure, we have already begun to discuss our travel wishes for summer 2011. Are we getting a bit ahead of ourselves? I think not! If we don't travel now when will we? Plus, it has been about six years since I was last in Italy, which is entirely too long a period of time as far as I am concerned and so therefore begging to be altered. Italy and Switzerland here we come, with albeit it a bit of a wait.

My Top 3 Must Sees:
  • Cinque Terre (which I did not have the pleasure of visiting last time)
  • My favorite restaurant in Florence, Ristorante da il Latini ( This restaurant was across from my apartment. We loved it! It is a set price and all the courses, but you have some selections within it and it is ohhhhhhh soooooo good. I even saw it featured on the food network after I came back from Florence! A definite must. They do not take reservations and you have to wait in line outside for a bit, but the upside is that they bring you complimentary drinks while you wait in line and everyone gets a bottle of wine to take home!
  • L' Uffizi - No trip would be complete without it, despite the fact that I have been to this museum at least five times. It is where, at the age of 15, I first fell in love with art history! Despite a very annoyed father who grumbled and pouted I spent over an hour (and no, I am not exaggerating) in the Boticelli room. I was in complete awe of La Primavera. I tried to take in every last detail, despite the occasional loud and boisterous tourist group (You know the ones I am talking about. Every time I enter the Uffizi I encounter them. They move fast from one must see painting to the other. They stop to hear a few key details of the painting and then race to the next stop on their list taking out any bystander who gets in the way).

Then, on to Switzerland where I am sure I will take a picture of every Swissy I encounter in honor of Tasha.
