Oh, no! You took the TRAIN!!!!

Just kidding, of course. I am thoroughly enjoying your trip report, warts and all. Very real and very much fun.

And, yes, Italians in general are wonderfully hospitable and generous. I'm sure there are exceptions but I never met one.

Shutterfly will NOT work for me, I've tried. I want to zap out a double of my ONLY album and it won't let me, so that I can make a new album of Italy. So I've jumped ship to Flickr and that's not going so smoothly. I have so many darned photos that it doesn't want to take them, then Flickr told me it will only take "X" amount per MONTH.

I hate the photo thing. It's my nemesis.

Hi Liz,

I see that you did create a duplicate album of your France trip but I'm not at all clear on why you wanted to do this. So you have 2 albums with the same pictures (France) and none of Italy.

Why don't you upload your Italy pix to the empty album on Shutterfly? Do you need another training session? I'm more than happy to help. If I lived closer to you I would upload the pix for you.

Ohhh...do you mean you want to delete the extra album? I thought "zap" meant to create an additional album.

You can create a new album any time - I have bunches of them. You don't have to worry about deleting the duplicate album.

To delete the duplicate go into the album and click on the trash can icon on the right.

Hello lizcakes, I finally got caught up with your thread and oh I have so enjoyed reading it. I would never be able to take a walking vacation as you did..you are awesome! I am glad that you were pleased with the tourist office at the Florence Train Station, one of my friends is one of the head people regarding the tourist office. I will pass on your good comments.

Those black flies are totally disgusting..I cringed for you! And yes the kindness and hospitality of the Italians is always so overwhelming, most of them are truly beautiful people.

I so look forward to your next installments!

I'm enjoying this trip report as much as I did the one in France --except for the blackflies, of course.

I have been trying to follow your progress on both Google Earth, and Mappy, but my Italian geography is so poor I have problems. Do you think you could load a map of your route onto whatever photo site you finally choose?

OK, I've updated Shutterfly somewhat but I seem to have lost one picture. [sigh] But Part 1 is done, Part 2 will follow. Maybe.

Have a ball. They are REALLY boring pics and I know no one can believe it, but photo ops were few and far between until we got to Venice and my favorite pic (probably) of the trip in Burano, coming soon - watch this space.

nukesafe: Adrienne has very nicely made a map of my route - or rather she's making one even as we speak. I am not, ahem, quite as computer literate as you would like to think of me. ; - ]

But I can type like a bandit, thank goodness. The writing is so-so. If you want to read great trip writing, read St Cirq - go to her posts.

Hi lizcakes, your photos are not boring! I just looked at them and enjoyed them so much. That fat cat on his back, precious, lol. And I always love pictures of doors and windows and stairs with all the potted plants. Lovely! Your pictures make me homesick for Italy!

Here's the map of Liz's route. All the towns are listed but not all are marked on the map. If you read down each column of towns, the ones in bold correspond to the towns marked on the map.

Liz - Russi is no where near your route so we'll have to check the spelling and correct later.

I'm not sure why the URL didn't completely hyperlink. I've tried it several times and I think this site is the problem.

I tried tiny url but that doesn't work either. It looks OK but when I preview, the url is shown twice and doesn't go to the site and I can't edit the link.

Oh well, copy and past the URL above to see the map.

I love your pictures! They make me miss Italy so much. Thank you for your efforts in posting them.

That scarecrow man was pretty creepy, wasn't he?

For anyone who is interested in Liz's other walks, I've posted the routes for the Cotswolds and the walk in France.

Just for anyone that is familar with Castlefranco in the Region of Veneto as I am the town that lizcakes was at is Castlefranco di sotto. So many smaller places in Italy have such similar names it can get very confusing.

Great report. I hope you didn't lose your Word doc with your B&B list during the trip, but I would like to share with you my tip for keeping copies of important documents. Assuming you have access to your email overseas, I scan all documents (passports, visa, tickets, tips I have collected etc) and email them to my own email address. Then if disaster strikes you can print them out in any internet cafe on the way...
Waiting for more installments.
