Grandma, Me and Pisa

Can you remember my Grandma from England who visited me when I was living in China and Holland? This time she has come over to stay with us in Italy for three weeks. As good hosts, my humans and I have decided to show her around some of Italy’s booti-ful cities.

Me and Grandma.

We began our road trip once Grandma had settled into our place in Lodi. Guess where our first destination was to be?

Ta-da! I’m going back to Pisa.

Here we are ready for the off. I would be sitting next to Grandma for the entire journey.

As an experienced traveller, I decided to show Grandma around Pisa. Here we are in front of the Leaning Tower.

Grandma may be eighty years old but she’s still as strong as an ox.

See what I mean! She can even support the Leaning Tower with her fragile hands! I’m impressed!

Me, Dad and Grandma happily posing in front of the Pisa’s Duomo and Leaning Tower.

After a full day of sight-seeing, we (I mean ‘THEY’) headed to a nearby restaurant for something to eat.

Unfortunately, I had to watch them devouring their food before I could have mine.

OK everyone, thanks for dropping by my blog. I have to go now and start penning the exploits from our trip to the next city on our itinerary. Can you guess where we’re heading to?

You have the mooooosssst wonderfully beautiful grandma! She is pawesome! We love all those towns you've been visiting and especially the Umbrian Assisi and Orvieto - what beautiful art and churches/duomos and towns there! You're a great guide, Homer! It has been waaaaaay too long since we visited and apologize for having been AWOL. Actually, I have a new sister, hence the "we." I was doing some research on little Avalon's history, as her Dad is from England. When I punched his name into google, it came up with YOUR BLOG!!! Avalon is related to you! Through William, who is her dad - isn't that amazing? Born all the way out here in California and we are... cousins? Not sure by how many generations, but... funny! Anyway, we have travel in common - love those road trips already! Keep showing us your great travels around Italy. Mom was last there 2 years ago and pines to visit again!
Hugs xoxoxo

Happy Father's Day to y'all!
Hello Grandma, wishing your grandma is always as strong as the day she tried to straighten the Leaning Tower.
My pawrents were there, my mom had her index finger fixing the tower too but it looked so fake!
Again, post ends with wonderful moment: Eat it!
