What does a honeymoon in Tuscany look like?

Back to our irregularly scheduled trip report. When we left off, N. and I were wandering aimlessly in the Tuscan country side until the police pulled us over. The rest of our stay in Tuscany was considerably more peaceful (with the minor exception of an incidence where it took us 45 minutes to get gas). We also made a new friend - her name is Lelia. Her love for her home region of Tuscany was infectious. She introduced us to some of the most beautiful scenes we have ever beheld, treated us to the most delicious coffee, brought us wonderful wine, and took some beautiful photographs. If you are ever in Chianti, you must give Lelia a call - she's just as sweet in person. All images below are by Lelia.

Let me tell you about a honeymoon in Tuscany.

We took long walks around vineyards.


We soaked in the golden warmth of the Tuscan sun.


We discovered abandoned houses,


where we could camp out in the backyard.




We drank the most delicious wine.


We learned to ride horses.


We took lots of photographs.


We caught the last of the sunflowers at the end of their season. 


Most importantly, we enjoyed each other. 


And when the picnic was over, 



we walked away hands in hands,


knowing that for the rest of our life, 



if the road ever gets muddy or tough, we would always carry each other through


and be in each other's arms again.
