Remember when I claimed I’d be blogging regularly when I relaunched my blog? Remember when I then apologised for not blogging in nearly every other post?

in Travels/Uncategorized

Here’s a short video I made about my afternoon in Pisa. This was the first time there I visited this city – bustling with students, and tourists aware of how ridiculous they look. I managed to get a “stereotype tourist posing with the Leaning Tower” shot as well, so no judgement here!
