travels, photos, and family
We managed to unravel the unfamiliar train systems and board TrenItalia in time to travel to Assisi. We sat with a young nun, who helped us when the conductor fussed at us because we hadn’t validated our tickets before boarding in Florence. I was just happy we made in time onto the train! The so-called ‘RapidTicket’ kiosk was no help and we waited in the wrong queue for several minutes before we were told we needed a number to get served. Just like the DMV at home!
Our travels were rewarded by a beautiful Tuscan/Umbrian landscape with wild poppies lining the train tracks. It started to rain as we arrived, which made for a fantastic afternoon sky and sunset.
