Northern and Central California; A Two Week Driving Itinerary

Due to COVID we planned to stick to traveling in the United States in 2021. Northern and central California has been on our list for a while...the lure of San Francisco, the hills, the seafood, giant redwood trees, wine country, Yosemite and Pacific Coast Highway are irresistible when you start thinking about it.

Exploring Italy Family Style

This Family trip to Italy was motivated by the idea of exploring a number of Italian locations, ie; Rome, Florence, Siena, Pisa, Livorno, Venice and the Ferrari Factory in Maranello. This blog page will provide you with an overview of the trip with links to each place we visited.

We utilized the Italian Railroad System for most of the trip, only had a rental car while we were in Florence - due to the distances involved for some of the day trips we had planned.
