Today is the second time that I guest host the Friendly Friday photo challenge after the floral theme two weeks ago. I’d like to thank all the participants and you were not few and far between. Let’s do it again today!
Yesterday morning Snow Melts Somewhere mailed me her chosen topic for today just as I was getting ready to co-drive 7 or so hours from Tuscany to Slovenia. Guess what her theme was? Day trip! Yes, she is still in the wheel and greets you all.
I like day trips. Day trip has been a category on my blog since I started it. You are welcome to have a look at my past day trips here.
However, since I don’t have my camera at the ready during this long trip that I take two or three times every year (in both directions), as it’s clearly quite trippy enough to just watch out through the windscreen for seven hours, I will show you the only day trip, okay, half-a-day trip that I took with my visiting uncle in the last two weeks. In such temperatures even keeping your eyes open for the whole day is a little miracle.
Just recently I had a brief look through the Lonely Planet for the southern Tuscany area and this bit about our regional capital stood out: “Poor Grosseto!” Indeed. Have you ever heard of it? No worries, nobody has. Neither had I before moving some 45 minutes to the south of it. Last week was only my second time to visit its historic centre on what must have been the hottest day in the six years since I moved here.
It was also the first day of the seasonal sales but I can’t say I noticed. You will note a cute little bag my uncle was carrying for me. 😀 Truth be told, after a short dash around the old town we settled for the air-conditioned shopping centre, no matter how much I hate them.
I planned it thus on purpose – first something for the heart and soul, and then capitalism. No wonder the photos only show the first part.
And now over to you. I’m curious about a day trip (or more) that you have taken or wish to take or were sorry you took or was the best day of your life. Everybody welcome!
Here’s how you join us:
- Leave the link to your post in the comments section of this post.
- Remember to include a pingback in your post!
It’s that simple!
You’re welcome to add our logo to your post, too, but that’s entirely optional. You can also add the WordPress tag Friendly Friday so that people can find your post more easily in their feed.
Please check out other participants’ posts because that’s the most fun part!
There’s no deadline for participating and the challenge is open for all. Next week Friendly Friday will be hosted by Amanda. Most probably see you again here in two weeks’ time.
Here is some Grosseto then so that now you can say you know it.
