Only a few kilometers away from the winery, where we stayed, was the village Radda.
A nice, small, picturesque old town.
Radda there is, according to excavations, since about 2000 years before BC.
The first written mention of the place in 1002 AD.
In the morning we went first
- we had rented a small apartment with self-care and were too lazy to prepare themselves breakfast -
to Radda, visited a tiny bistro, sipping latte macchiato and eat delicious, warm bruschetta.
Bruschetta is a toasted bread,with fresh olive oil and chopped tomatoes.
We could sit for hours in the cafe and watch people coming and going.
Hello dear people! How are you? I’ll tell you now something about Frieda.
She lives very well with us and makes us happy.
I’m sorry that I forgot yesterday the MusicFriday.
Friends have visited us and they had a dog with them.
He is much smaller than Frieda, but both of them have well understood.
They were running through the house,
they have played together,
and have enjoyed the time.
Later we all went out for a walk. And whenever our friends have thrown a pitch for their dog, Frieda also wanted the branch.
It was very funny!
Today we were the first time with Frieda at the group training.
It was nice and Frieda heard well.
Frieda concentrated and almost did not notice the other dogs.
In the next hour, we can already in the advanced group.
We are very excited about it!
The autumn holidays in Tuscany – in the Chianti area – spending means lots and lots of rest. Most tourists have left for home and life in the picturesque villages returns back to normality.
The morning began with a cold, clear air, frozen grass, the mist rising slowly, and a good espresso in a nearby village.
The leaves of the vines were turning golden or red, the light was soft and perfect for countless photos.
We had found shelter in a vineyard situated among rolling vineyards, the nearest village was a few kilometers.
For our last day in Paris we had bought tickets for the Louvre.
Museé du Louvre
We’ve looked at the Louvre, especially the old masters such as Rubens and Rembrandt. There were relatively few visitors and it was pleasantly empty.
As we moved toward Micheangelos Mona Lisa, the crowd grew larger, dense scramble and the pictures were hard to see. Nevertheless, we looked at the Mona Lisa, a relatively small picture.
After the Louvre we needed a break, we crossed the Seine and sat in a restaurant called le voltaire.
I’ve eaten omelette – and I tell you, I’ve never in my life eaten such a delicious omelette there.
Jardin des Tuileries
The rest of the day - the evening before our flight was going home – we make use of two gardens,
which we wanted to see even more essential.
The Jardin des Tuileries is nice, but full.
Jardin des Plantes
The Jardin des Plantes is definitely worth visiting. Such beautiful trees, so old and the avenue of trees – just amazing.
In winter, the avenue of trees to be beautiful.
Paris was the best trip we have made this year. Paris is beautiful and full of charm.
Too bad that the six days were over so quickly.
We would have spent even more time as you stroll and look.
There is still so much we have not seen it and so much of food that we have not yet tried.
