Hey All,

Jamie and I made it to our camping site in Florence...I had stayed in a camping site in Rome but that was a bungalow..this was an actually tent...fun.. but Florence is alot colder then Rome..I thought the tent was going to blow away..and it was really really cold..I had to sleep in my thermals, my bennie and explorer socks..and I was still cold. Other than that Florence was incredible..

The Uffizi was an incredible museum with a great exhibition on Di Vinci, we spent 6 hours there and could have spent longer..We also saw Michelangelo's David, which was incredible as well...Strange museum tho..the is pretty much nothing else in there...we qued for an hour paid 10€ and spend 20 minutes in the place..but it's still worth it...Felt sorry for the people that qued for 4 hours the next day...may have spoiled their experience..

We also went to Siena for a day..which is a beautiful city..and great fun. on the last day we headed to Pisa and saw the leaning town..which was worth about an hour..but I had the worst hangover of my life..I literaly couldn't move..I made it to Pisa walked for 20 minutes to the tower and collapsed on the grass for about 1h and 30m..couldn't even lift my head to look at the tower..was great grass though..best of the trip...was worth going just for the grass....go to Pisa for the tower..nah i went for the grass..there are also a lot of other buildings around the tower.which surprised me as I thought it was all alone...

We left for the Cinque Terra after a mad dash to the train we we made by about 5 seconds...time for some relaxation!!!
