The first day, we flew from Norway into Rome and took a train right away to Florence. We stayed in a very cute campsite that had a lot of mosquitoes. We did not get to the campsite till late at night because it took us a while to find the right train and bus. As soon as we got there we went right to bed. The next say, we got a visit from Branson! He was on a cruise in Europe the same time we were backpacking and my Mom and his Mom were able to arrange a rendezvous for us. We walked around, had lunch, took pictures, and parted ways, it was such an awesome day. The same day, we went to the Uffizi Museum with lots of paintings and sculptures. That night there was a very scary storm with lightning right outside our cabana tent. The next day I got sick so I spent the day in the tent while Mom went to train station to buy tickets for the next trip to Rapallo.
