At first it seemed like a good idea - the new apartment is slightly larger, more centrally located, has air conditioning, and fantastic views over the town. However, when we started packing we realised just how much we have accumulated over the past couple of months. It creeps up on you; an extra cup here, a bread-knife there. When it all adds up we seem to have roughly doubled what we started with.
Anyway, after surviving the move (more or less) we are thoroughly enjoying the fantastic views and change of scene. From one side of the apartment we see Santa Croce and Piazza Michelangelo, from the other we can see Palazzo Vecchio.
