Friday, August 9, 2013                I had a horrible sleep last night!  Thankfully, it turned out to be a great day to make up for the bad sleep…I love it when that happens!                I was at the pool by 9 am and did a great 3km swim.  The pool here is really quite superior to any...

Thursday, August 8, 2013                Today it was grey and dark when I woke up.  I decided I was going to walk all the way to the centre of the city from where I am staying as that would be the best way to see everything…except I made it to the end of the street when... Continue Reading →

Wednesday, August 7, 2013                I had a great sleep-in this morning before checking the heat list for today’s swim.  We have free practice in the mornings until 2pm.  The race itself only starts at 2pm…                I meandered over to the tram stop buying food for lunch at the local supermarket en route.  The pool is...

Tuesday, August 6, 2013                I did have another great sleep last night.  Now that Laure is around the nights aren’t as late as they used to be in the S. house – and my love of early nights quite likes this fact!                  M. S. drove my car, with me as a passenger, to get... Continue Reading →

Monday, August 5, 2013                I had such a great sleep last night!  It is such a relief to not sleep at 40 degrees!!  I also got up at 2am to look at the stars from my awesome window!  They were spectacular.                I actually woke up before Laure did!  Although she is pretty demanding during the...

Sunday, August 4, 2013                I packed up all of my stuff again this morning and made my way on the #4 tram to the train station, where I (thankfully) didn’t have any problems finding the shuttle bus to take me to the airport where I would pick up my car.  It was a longer bus...

Saturday, August 3, 2013                We woke up later this morning, which was a really nice change, to be honest!  Ilaria came in late from a party, but neither of us heard her.  Definitely an awesome Air BnB host…and she even left out a full spread for breakfast, which was awesome!                Our trains were around 1pm,...

August 2, 2013                We set our alarm this morning as well!  We decided to leave our bags at the BnB and do the hike from Vernazza to Monterosso al Mare with just our cameras and water.  It was wonderful to not have our bags with us.  Thanks to that and the fact it was cooler, the...

August 1, 2013                We got up before the sun had risen this morning…sad to think that the days are already getting that much shorter.  We were set to walk to the train station around 5:30am – and although it was already a good 20 degrees out, it was so nice compared to the last few...

Wednesday, July 31, 2013                We headed down to the centre to arrive at our bike rental place for 8:30.  After talking with the hostel, we decided cycling to Sienna was not an option, but we could definitely cycle on some quiet roads to visit a few little towns en route.                We had a rocky start. ...
