Originally, I had planned to write about each country in one post, but we just did too much in Italy to confine it to a post any reasonable person would want to read (you still don't want to scroll through an inordinate amount of pictures in separate posts, you say? Nonsense). Since I spent a lot of time exploring different parts of Italy while studying abroad last fall, going to Chianti wine country this time around was one of my favorites as I never made it last year. The day included what should have been an easy hike that was made excessively demanding by the ruthless heat, unbelievably beautiful views, a tour of a 13th century winery in a family villa, and a roughly 3-hour long family style meal complete with wine and olive oil tasting. So basically an Italophile wino's dream day. You know, if you know any of those (me. That's me).
