Living the Dream in Lucca


I’ll never be rich (at least not in monetary terms) or famous, but for the next two weeks, I’ll be living as if I were.

Our villa in Lucca is exquisite. Because of bed type and bathroom preferences among the other villa mates, I ended up with this fantastic room.  I’m so glad Sandy is joining me here on July 4th, to share this amazing experience with me.  Get ready, everyone–once little sister arrives, the blog will likely become much more exciting (or maybe not, so it can keep its PG rating.)

Check out that terrace, right outside our room.

Our bathroom

I’m quite proud of myself.  I actually figured out how to use the shower on my own. Usually Mike does all the hard stuff. This shower has knobs galore to control overhead, side and hand sprays. The door reminds me of Star Trek, except it has a seat, so you can be comfy while being beamed up?

Ours is the only shared bathroom, (with the “twin bed” room) but there is also a bathroom on the first floor. The three other bedrooms (two on the third floor) have their own, equally magnificent bathrooms. So, five bedrooms in total, and five baths.

There is also a large, shady terrace on the first floor.

  1. I wish I had a pool. It has been over 90 most days this week. The pool would have kept me from wining sooo much – but oh well.
    Shelley – can you pack up the pool and put it in your suitcase?

  2. I think this is the most relaxing vacation yet. At least I would be relaxed! I don’t have to bike all over the countryside like you guys do.
    Besides I’m sure they don’t have training wheels for me.

    • Thanks Lin,
      San and I went shopping yesterday and I bought one special item. Could there be a contest in our future? San wants to write some of the questions, which could indeed be scary.
