A long trip I made in the summer of 2009. I started from Rome and went all the way to Austria with this small 106, which at the end did 2500km in 10 days.

In 2009 also, I did the slave for a living. The job wasn’t that bad, but it was consuming me slowly each year. I worked on a computer all day, executing orders all the time, and I didn’t like that. So for me that was slavery. But I was lucky. So lucky. I had priviledges. I could leave the job for 4 weeks each year and do whatever I wanted. But I couldn’t take these 4 weeks all at the same time. No no no, that’s too much. My owner unchained me for 2 weeks in summer, and 2 weeks in winter. So the plan was to use my summer temporary 2 week freedom days to do what I most like to do: Travel. Visit places I’ve never been before! “So I said goodbye to all my friends and packed my hopes inside a matchbox ’cause I know it’s time to fly”

At the end of the first day I was already in Tuscany. I found this quiet agritourism in the middle of the hills near Siena.

Agriturismo Collesassi. The owners were nice people and everything went fine. I took some pictures of the place.
