Kristin's Blog: Day 3: Tuscany Bound!
This morning we had to have our bags outside of our room and tagged by 7am, and then we had breakfast. We had to be in the lobby ready to board our bus for our next adventure. On the way to Tuscany our bus stopped in a quaint village called Orvieta. It was spectacular and a nice change from the big city of Rome. En route we stopped at a gas station that was not your typical American gas station -- this one had a bathroom and a shower, candy (huge sizes), and alcohol and wine.
Orvieta was awesome and we loved walking around and seeing the countryside. After an amazing lunch at a local spot in Orvieta, we boarded our bus, listened to Italian music and drove on into. Tuscany. We had such FUN in this town, visiting and speaking with the locals. Korey and Alexa are wonderful about telling us where we should "fashion" (aka using the bathroom) as some are not very American-like as others. That's all for now as I am on my way to Tuscany and our wine tasting tonight!
I'm back... The adults headed to a wine tasting and Tuscan style dinner. The Junior Adventurers (including my twins) went off for an Italian Soda tasting, dinner, and a Disney movie. The Juniors also got to have Gelato. The adults were able to taste three types of wine, the first being a white, and then two reds. Our adult dinner consisted of appetizers of bruschetta and a cheese plate. Our first course was pasta with mushrooms, then we had pork with potatoes mash, along with beans and steak. The wine was free flowing and along with each type of wine we were given an explanation by a local Tuscan wine expert. All of the adults were excited to hear that we get to sleep in a bit before we head out for the day to a local farm to make our own pasta.
