“As we live and as we are, Simplicity - with a capital "S" - is difficult to comprehend nowadays. We are no longer truly simple. We no longer live in simple terms or places. Life is a more complex struggle now. It is now valiant to be simple: a courageous thing to even want to be simple. It is a spiritual thing to comprehend what simplicity means.”
Frank Lloyd Wright
Our second hotel city of our trip to Italy was in Tuscany, a launching point for day trips to Barga, Lucca, Florence, Forte Dei Marmi, Castiglione and Garfagnana. The hotel was in the mountains and a lot of driving and traffic circles were involved. A beautiful countryside, fields of wine grapes, rolling hills, walled cities, really lovely. These are photographs from Barga, and in the days ahead I'll share the other cities we visited in Tuscany.
