On the Autostrada with Jim & Magrit

I spent the day with a tour guide in Siena while Magrit stayed back at the B&B in Pienza trying to get over a cold and cough. She slept most of the day and is in much better shape because of the rest. This is our last night in Pienza before heading back up to Pisa to meet with our group.

I didn’t get any shooting in today but will feature this video that Magrit shot of me while driving from Venice to Chianti a few days ago. I actually like driving in Italy except when I am on a country road and want to stop to photograph and a local Italian is driving about 2 inches behind me! It can be somewhat nerve racking. I have been able to keep up with the best of them though on this trip as we have a VW Golf which is a driving dream on the serpentine Tuscan roads. I always want a new car after using a rental in Italy.

    My favorite part of driving in Italy is when the oncoming drivers are ALWAYS on your side of the road…even when its not a curve. Very interesting driving.
