I am a single woman planning a trip to the UK, France and Italy in October-November 2012. At home I live in my own little renovation-in-progress cottage on the riverfront in Hobart, Tasmania. I work for a small private consulting company dealing directly with federal and state government, focussing on information and data projects.
I have travelled in the past to western Europe, the USA, and lived in the UK in my 20s, and I am most excited to be going back to see my absolute favourite parts of the world.
For some of this trip I will be travelling with my father, who is keen to do the Grand Tour of Italy one more time. In Italy we intend to spend most of our time in Venice, Florence, Rome and southern Italy, visiting museums, art galleries, historic and archeological sites, and aim to see some more of the surrounding areas by doing short side day trips by train and boat.
For accommodation in London, Paris and Italy we will be looking for simple 1-2 bedroom apartments where we can do some basic food preparation and have some down time. Nothing fancy, just convenient, safe and clean.
