Following Pisa we headed South to Orbotello. We stayed in "Parco Sosta Lanini" which was just across the road to a wild and windy sea.


We only stayed for one night but enjoyed one of our best yet stops for lunch, right by the ocean.



The crazy winding and steep scenic coastal road around Orbotello was a visual feast and we had serious house envy for some of the HUGE mansions perched on the cliff top.

Farewell i Cedri (for now!)

Visit to Pisa via the Serchio river

After a WONDERFUL week at I Cedri it was time to resume our trip. We drove Jeremy's mum to Pisa where from where she was flying from. On the way we stopped to absorb the beauty of "Ponte della Maddalena" bridge which crosses the Serchio river near the town of Borgo a Mozzano.

We indulged in all tourist necessities while in Pisa, it was a very different visit from the one before the wedding!

A week of bliss

Following the wedding we spent 5 days relaxing at I Cedri, spending much needed time with family and friends although of course it was not long enough. It truly is one of the most beautiful places on earth and Daniela and her team go out of their way to ensure that everything is as wonderful as possible.

We spent a lot of time reuniting and eating amazing Tuscan fare.

It was wonderful to be able to relax as a family after the rush of the preceding months.

Pizza Party

The day after the wedding we celebrated with a Pizza party overlooking the incredible grounds and views beyond. We were SO lucky to have had another gorgeous sunny day. This had been one of the wettest summers on record with hardly any consecutive days of sunshine so we were incredibly fortunate.

Daniela's team put on the most incredible food. It was a perfect, perfect afternoon.

Our wedding day

View European Adventure 2014 on bywaterbyland's travel map.

We had the most wonderful day and were so incredibly thankful for all of our amazing family and friends who went above and beyond to share our day with us and to help us pull it off. Planning a wedding while travelling in a campervan with two small children through foreign countries without a wedding planner was no easy feat and the only reason it all came together was because of those around us. Our photographer was the brilliant Riccardo Bestetti who captured the day so beautifully and we are indebted to him for the incredible photos that we will forever cherish.
