Colourful belts in Florence.
Some winter woollies in York
Looking Up in Florence.We had both read I, Mona Lisa, just prior to leaving on our European adventure.
Set in Florence and mentioning visiting
the Duomo and the Bell Tower frequently
we were both happy to this site come to life.
I think this depicts a trade.
another look up moment.
a warrior (?) standing over a victim.
I thought the victim had a lot of hair on its head..

We chose not to visit the real

David while in Florence.
Travelling to Europe last year gave us the
opportunity to see and or visit many places
Both of us had, not long before departure,
finished reading a book titled,
“I, Mona Lisa’ which was set in Florence.
The Medici family were the main characters,
The story was a fictional depiction of how,
and why, the Mona Lisa may have come to be painted.
The Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees
are two well known landmarks of Paris.
Dubai’s Burj Al Arab.
We had planned on partaking of High Tea at
the Burj Al Arab in 2013.
Unfortunately our plans had to change.
It was, however, a 7 star experience worth waiting for.
