Hi folks, we're sitting in a cafe on the Piazza Vittorio in Turin (Torino) and we've just purchased some internet time using our laptop! It's amazing how we can communicate from our travels these days. Thanks to Todd Decker for introducing us to TravelPod, where we are creating our travel web site. We have posted some pictures from our first 5 days in Italy.

The drive from the Lake to Turin yesterday was "interesting" - as road repair on the Autostrada (we're now calling it the auto-stress-a!) made the driving a little scary for Cindy, and total hell for Mark in the city, because of poor Google-Map directions to the hotel (lesson: don't trust GoogleMap in Europe!). The hotel is in an excellent location, walking distance to all the sites we want to see here.

We hope you enjoy the pictures - we'll try to continue updating this site, but tomorrow we'll be in Cinque Terre (5 medieval villages) in the coastal countryside, and may not have internet access.

Ciao bella!

It is just so exciting for you to send us beautiful pictures of your trip. Everything looks fabulous. I hope you are testing the wine along the way, You need to so you can say what is best. Keep sending pictures when you can.

Much love
Sally

Hi Guys, Postefezula (horrible Italian :-), As Eileen said, company has returned to Windsor and house back to normal (what's that?). Pictures are superb and it looks like you are having the time of your lives. Returning to states will be painful. It still tickles me that you and Laura both in Europe at same time. Only in America !!! Won't be long and Blowing Rock trip will be due. Fun Fun

Loads of love, Dad
