Ahh Firenze – I don’t think there’s anybody that visits Italy and doesn’t fall in love with the country. Had a wonderful girls trip away for the long weekend, made even better by the fact that I was joined by my oldest (in terms of friendship years, not people years!) friends from back home. Florence was also properly warm in May (unlike London’s BS ‘summer’) – I might have actually broken out in a sweat walking along the Ponte Vecchio. Of course the only way to combat heat like that is to (over)indulge in gelato (a massive weakness of mine) and ridiculous Nutella treats. Three gelatos a day keeps the doctor away…right?
