honeymoon adventures in assisi

June 13, 2011


After three busy days in Rome Matthew and I were really looking forward to the countryside. We had rented a villa right near Assisi and it sounded perfect..until we got there. It was definitely not how it was  described online; the towels were hard and stiff, the bedding felt damp, there were hardly any lights, the stove didn’t turn on, the refrigerator didn’t work, the shower was kind of gross- I could go on and on. Not to mention, the guy who owned it seemed like a complete weirdo! We got out of there as fast as possible and went into Assisi to look for wireless in the hopes of contacting the villa rental company. We met the nicest people in Assisi, from the lady who walked us over to a tourist office, to the man who found us a great deal on an apartment for the night. Matthew and I ended up falling in love with Assisi and we were so glad everything worked out as it did because we were able to live in this beautiful hill town for a couple days and just explore.
 I didn’t even think to pack socks and it got so cold one day that I had to wear Matthew’s blue ones!

I still want to share some photos from the countryside, Florence and the Amalfi Coast, so I’m going to work those in over the next week or so. Since I can’t post wedding photos just yet, it’s the next best thing, right?  🙂 
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! It was very June Gloomy in LA, and still is today. We should be finding out about that apartment this afternoon and I’m crossing my fingers and toes. I’ll let you all know what happens!
