A Room with a View

This morning I received two bits of exciting news: all the hotels for our Girls' Trip to Italy have been confirmed, and our hotel in Santa Margherita on the Italian Riviera guarantees rooms with a sea view for our entire group.

Of course, thinking about a room with a view reminded me of Florence (which we will also be visiting) and the movie (appropriately titled) A Room With a View. The movie's setting juxtaposes the serenity of the English countryside with the gritty passion of Florence, and with Puccini's O Mio Babbino Caro as the musical theme, the result is a cinematic feast for the senses. (On a side note, while I don't generally espouse nudity in movies, the skinny dipping scene with George, Freddy, and Mr. Beebe always has me rolling on the floor with laughter.)

Anyway, A Room with a View is a great movie to watch if you want to get your Italy on ;-)
