We treasure every journey we made, and that's the main reason we put up this webpage to share with you.
So often we thought that we have travelled enough.

For the New Year Break 2010, we decided to visit Italy: a journey through the Tuscany region by train and car with little surprises on the way. Join us:
Special thanks to Reno Schulz, freelance flutist in San Gimignano, who saved our holiday after New Year eve when our room was double-booked and this world heritage town overloaded with visitors! You can enjoy a piece of his music when taking a look at the video above!
