Actually, mom and dad are gone now already. It was great having them here, and I think they really enjoyed themselves. I think dad will be happy to be home eating rice again though.
We traveled with them through Italy which was fabulous. We drove through the Swiss Alps, saw Venice, Treviso, Tuscany (Florence, Siena, Certaldo and San Gimignano) and Lake Como on the way back to Freiburg. Tuscany is exquisitely picturesque and we definitely would go back there again for a vacation. The food and the wine in Italy were fantastic!
