We're just ending our first week of our holiday in Tuscany and today has been the best so far.
Abbazia di Monte Oliveto Maggiore is run by Benadictine monks and is set in a glorious setting of peace and tranquility. What was really interesting apart from the monastery itself were the people who spoke to us at the beginning.
They wanted signatures and money! They were collecting for a Rehab centre in the village below. Given all the work I have been doing with RehabGrads I found it really interesting to find people here in Italy having the same problem as in Scotland. Getting into rehab! It was nice to chat with them and being able to leave a card with information about RehabGrads. Maybe we can help each other in the future, who knows!
We then had a lovely drive home where we caught the tale-end of the Wimbledon Men's tennis final. I has forgotten about it but given Andy Murray was playing, I shouldn't have! Anyway AM made history and became the first British player to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry back in 1936! An end to a perfect day.
