    Holiday photos (56k and tiredness warning)

    Well it's that time again. Here comes some more dull holiday photos!

    Went to Tuscany for a week with my parents. Most of the photos look the same.... mainly Italian hill towns but there are a few of Florence too.

    Sorry about the different sizes too, I scaled them down but they started at different sizes due to some being taken on my camera(2.1MP), some on the super-mega-cybershot(7.2MP) and some on my phone (2MP). The more geeky viewers may wish to guess which photos were done with which camera!







    View from the garden:


    Night time garden shot:


    Fiat-tastic!:




    We got an A180 hire car but I would rather have had this!:


    Mopeds. Evil.


    The Ponte Vecchio (bridge in the foreground):




    This one doesn't really show much, I just like the look of it:





    Wake up now, it's over.

    I love Italy, cant wait to go back, im either gonna have a week in Sorento later this year or try and get back to Rome.

    Fab pics, when i saw the first one i thought you were in Rome as the Piazza di Spagna is where the Spanish steps are in Rome.

    Would you recommend Florence? What is there to see and do there?

    Yeah it was pretty relaxing. Can't really complain if your parents offer to pay can you?

    Raz - Florence was well worth the visit. We parked up on the hill which is only a short walk or bus ride away. Views are excellent from there too.

    Tim - Yeah, it is the cathederal mate. Bridge is pretty cool too, for those of you that don't know it was the only one in the city not destroyed in WW2.

    The day we went to Florence there was this big parade thing going on. I think it was a union thing but they really went to town with it..... banners, drums, whistles.







    Should be getting away towards the end of the summer with Claire but it'll probably be Warwick and Alton Towers as we are both saving to buy a flat (seperately I might add! )
