JJ wanted to photograph Italy. Certainly, Italy was at the top of his bucket list. You heard so much about Italy. More than half of the artworks in the art history textbook are from Italy, so it has to be good.
Our trip to Italy kept delaying. We didn't go this spring. Summer was out of question because of the facts that there's a boatload of tourists during high season and summer Italy is excruciatingly hot. The delay gave us more time to do research and prepare for the trip. The trip was complicated because we had to visit 4 cities, Rome, Florence, Venice, Milan, plus a day trip to Pisa and Cinque Terre. We didn't know what to expect as I had not found any travel bloggers posting detailed travel within 4 cities in Italy like what I read about traveling within multiple cities in Spain online.
