The forecast called for thunderstorms & lightening here in Roma on Thursday (and the convent is closed to volunteers each Thursday), so I decided to take the train up to Siena for a fun little getaway. I sure was not disappointed as Siena is absolutely spectacular! It is a Tuscan town that is known for its medieval brick buildings and the Palio di Siena, a traditional horse race around the town square which happens every summer. I am already planning my return visit!!

Spritz, an Italian speciality! (Prosecco with ginger beer) I am a fan of drinking my meals while in Italy ; )

  1. A spritz sounds delicious! Why did we never try that? Guess it means we'll have to come visit again to try it :) Love you and love reading about your adventures!!
