It's Better to Travel than Arrive?

"To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive"

obviously never flown long haul economy class"

Siena Photos

A random selection of photos from my afternoon in Siena, on my free day whilst staying at Castellare di Tonda.  I caught the train in to Siena and neglected to bring a map, so I just wandered around for a few hours, following the signs to things I vaguely recognised from books.  I figured if I got too lost, I'd just jump in a taxi, but I found my way back to the train station with no problems at all.  Siena is gorgeous!

This is where I had lunch.  It was in a 400 year old archway leading to the Campo, with a small restaurant and some tables staggered up the steps.  A gorgeous breeze was blowing through which helped keep me a bit cooler than the people sitting in the Campo.  Fettucine with shaved truffles and a glass of chilled white wine - bliss!
