One thing I’ve learned about travelling is that you have to be open to the unplanned. A friend and I were in Florence, in one of those lovely little alimentari café/delis where they have bowls of delicious things behind glass and you choose a plate, get a glass of wine and have a delicious meal much cheaper than in any touristic restaurant. We must have looked quite flummoxed by the choices because a local who was there doing the same as us offered help. We ended up with plates of great food and also a couple of wonderful tips for things to do in Florence.
