Well, this one has been a long time coming… 🙂 We’ve finally gotten round to editing the full video from our Italian road trip. (I’d already done one here with a quick rundown of the places we’ve visited) but never the full video. Well, if you’re into Italy or just fancy a little jaunt across the … Continue Reading

After spending a beautiful albeit cloudy day in Florence, the sun decided to finally pop its head out! With this in mind, I decided it make perfect sense to head over to one of the most colourful places in Italy – Cinque Terre!
