Postcard of the Week: Tuscany
I sent this postcard home to my mother in August 2011, during a weekend trip to Siena. I was coming to the end of my internship at Armani, and with that, the end of my Third Year Abroad. On the back of the postcard I wrote about the 400 steps of the tower in Siena, the view of the rolling hills just beyond the city walls, the medieval architecture of the buildings, and the upcoming Palio the following weekend… I was excited to only have 7 days left of the internship before my holiday to Sardinia with my mother, and I wrote about how much I was longing to see the sea. Part of the beauty of holding onto your postcards is that not only do you have a visual reminder of a certain place, but you also have a written record of what you were thinking at the time. Perfect for those who don’t keep a diary.
