....and I'm sure you get my drift. In retrospect 10 days to travel from Sorrento, Naples, Rome, Florence, Tuscany and finally Venice was ambitious. Not so much in regards to the distance we had to cover, but more so, to the amount of meals we could pack in the 10 days.......heh. I calculated that at a standard 3 meals a day, plus 2 additionals for early morning and mid-afternoon tea, we were look at a maximum opportunity of 50 meals. In Italy. Being the ultimate carb-maniac that I am, you could only imagine my excitement. How did we go? Well let's just say, half way into it, we pretty much blew most of our spending money, and still with 1.5 months of Europe to go! Oops. But may I say ladies and gents, that every, single, spaghetti string, mozzarella ball, roma tomato, arancini ball, pancetta slice and the obvious kilo gain.....was worth it.
