Ok. So, I have 1600 pictures from the Italy trip after deleting duplicates and just obviously bad shots. The thought of doing the best editing this collection really deserves makes me break out in a cold sweat.
In addition to the picture problem, I am also drowning in what to say about what we experienced. I really don’t have the words. Every single day was amazing in it’s own particular way. My eyes were drowning in beauty either in the artwork or the architecture or the landscape. And now, I need to hang paltry words around it.
In the interests of starting somewhere, here I am. In Florence.
The pictures below were from our first full day in Italy after a tremendously needed 12 hours of sleep, which banished our jet lag. We went to the Uffizi in the morning and the Galileo museum in the afternoon.
The Uffizi was incredible. I was like walking inside an art history book. I’m not going to try and describe it and just point you to a good link if you want to know a bit more about the museum and it’s most famous works. Just know that loads of famous paintings are in there, and all the décor around the paintings is just as magnificent as the paintings themselves.
I have so much more to say, but I just don’t have the mental bandwidth to say it right now. But! These are only half the pictures from our first day. The second half will be for the next blog post. There I might find the words explain how I fell in love with Caravaggio or I might talk about how freaking weird it is that the have Galileo’s appendages on display.
