I've been visiting all the stores to look for city specific merchandise like in New York. Other than Paris, so far the Italian stores don't have them. There was however a pretty good sale on! Minnie PJs for 10euros...

I have loved every minute of your journey so far and I think I even glimpsed a few shots of Jonah looking at the camera and gasp, smiling .

The one thing that is missing young lady, is pictures of you. Please please please make more of an effort to get in front of the camera. If not for yourself, for your children later on.

Venice just looks super duper stunning. I cannot wait to go there one day. I enjoyed seeing your castle in Carcassone (did I spell that right).

And Club Med - are you serious. That is some great luxury for parents right there . Wowsers.

Can't wait to see and read more.

Your photos are stunning.
Sorry to hear about the head cold and the lack of sleep. Thank you for reading despite that! I hope you feel better soon

Thank you for the compliments! Jonah has been having a great time. Currently all three children are being spoilt with nana and grandpa travelling. This will get worse as soon as my parents and family join us...

I do have photos of me...I just hate posting them!!! Will try harder to post them

Love Jonahs Mickey shoes. They are fantastic. All of the kids look like try are having so much fun. Their smiles reach their eyes.

What I love in Italy is the food. So fresh and simple and filling and out of the main cities. Cheap. You almost feel like you are cheating them. We have passed through Bologna twice. It is on my list for our next Italy trip for sure.

Awesome!

I love Bologna. We had friends living there and as a consequence, we spent a bit of time in that city. It was a great place to use as a hub to Florence and towards Venice.

Your pictures take me back and I'm glad to see that the food reputation seems to remain intact.

The kids are having a ball. Their biggest fear is that its is time to go home! I definitely agree about the food. SO lovely to just have the natural flavours stand out

Lucky you! Bologna really has a different feel to the other Italian cities. We've loved our time there and we can now say that it has good Indian as well as good Italian

Nice angles, shushh.
Was the area under Bologna built by the Etruscans?


Your Florence apartment looks great. I hope the other family's kid is better. Looking forward to more of Florence but I love your shoes.

Great apartment (s) (and good owners/managers to let the other family stay as needed and still accommodate you -not everyone are so helpful), great shoes and I loved Jonah's Disney boots from the earlier post too. You will have to tell us what was the best moments of the trip when you return (which I think may be hard!)

I love when something unexpected happens. What a Beautiful parade. I love traveling as an extended family. I laughed at the golden boy remark. That is what my husband is called. Our girls love it and if we plan on gong aloe have to really convince them it wll be OK without the grandparents.


Did you get to the food Mercato. By girls loved it in there.

What a fantastic time in Florence. Those pictures of the parade were great. And no photography allowed in the museum anymore?


If your DH is the Golden Boy.....does that make you a Golden Girl????

We made it to the Mercato Centrale today. Blog post coming up

My family love DH more than me...He can do no wrong! I'm always getting told by my parents to take care of him better! As for his parents, they'd bend over backwards for him (and the rest of the family but especially for him!). I can understand why as DH has the most generous of hearts.

Princess, I was devastated not to be able to take photos in some of the museums. It was about 50% so far of museums in Italy where photography is not allowed. I suppose in some ways, it was good as I was able to enjoy what I'm seeing a little more.

Sadly, as much I'd love to be a "Golden Girl" (they were hilarious)...I'm nowhere near being one!

Our next two days in Florence
http://deliriouslydemented.blogspot....1/secrets.html
http://deliriouslydemented.blogspot....-shopping.html

THank you to everyone who've followed along. Its been a LONG read! You'll be glad to know that there's probably not that much longer to go though. We have 1 more day in Florence and then a travel day, a day in Rome and then we're on the cruise. I'll probably be awol then for about 2 weeks...
