He flew in from Vienna, and I arrived from Milano, following our agreement on the itinerary. For a long weekend, we rented a Fiat 500 and drove all over Tuscany.

We went to Cinque Terre, Siena, Lucca, Pisa, and some of Italy’s most beautiful cities. Together, we had a fantastic adventure.

We went on subsequent trips after the trip because we had a lot of fun. The story’s conclusion was that sometimes it is beneficial to step outside of one’s comfort zone and take a chance on a stranger; who knows, he might turn out to be an excellent travel companion.
