The First of Many Shared Trips

Where do you go when you just want to relax and enjoy some quality peace and family time? I don’t know about you, but Italy is my go to place. I just love everything about Italy, and I thought it was time to introduce my children to it. Every time I have went in the past, it was just me or myself and my wife traveling there. This time, I looked at some luxury villa rentals in Tuscany because I wanted to see what kind of place I could get for a clan as big as mine.

I really thought I would end up having to book some hotel rooms because I was not expecting to find a villa that has eight bedrooms. Just because we needed eight bedrooms does not mean there was just eight of us though. In total, there were 18 of us, because our children all have children of their own now. When I saw that villa that we ended up renting, it was almost like a sign that this was meant to be. I don’t really believe in things like that, but I did take it as a good thing that we found something that we could all enjoy together rather than bunking in several different hotel rooms.

The rooms are all spacious, and they each have their own bathroom too, plus there are a couple more bathrooms throughout the house. I would have never imagined that we would find that, so that was a nice thing to see. Plus, there is a pool, a theater style room for watching films, a state of the art kitchen that my wife wants to try to duplicate at home now, and so much more. Everyone enjoyed their time here, and I know that this was just the first of many shared trips that we take from now on.
