I'm satisfied I've got this far
Driving and moving on with the van is very much part of our holiday and Tuscany makes this a very enjoyable part. The scenery is varied and beautiful and there is always something worth stopping and seeing.
In the 150 kms or so from San Gimignano to meet up with our Italian friend Karin in Sorano we enthused about the fields of poppies through the Elsa valley, we enjoyed a beautiful lunch spot with views over fields of vines and mountains, we drove over Monti Amiata; through firstly thick dark pine woods and then into the dappled shade of beech woods, seeing more trees than it feels we have in the whole of England and we stopped at Abbadia San Salvatore for a coffee and a stroll around the historical medieval town centre.
