In April 2007 Mark and Linda set out to begin a new life, somewhere Europeish.

Next stop on our trip was in Mantova, a small lake town in keeping with our goal to visit smaller, less touristed towns in Italy.
I think we were a little underwhelmed when we arrived - we couldn't find a hotel in the old town so we were near the station, then we managed to get ourselves lost navigating our way into the town, and it was cold and dreary when we did find one of the main squares.
However after a quick lunch of some of the local specialities (especially the delicious pumpkin ravioli), and finding some of the more attractive and lively squares, we felt a lot happier with our decision.
As you've probably come to expect, we spent our time wandering around the town, checking out the enormous Duomo, shopping and eating.
We finished up with another delicious meal for dinner before heading back to our hotel for the night.
