Florence, one day in 1988 by accident…… I was in Munich the day before and wanted a sleep. I asked the Haupbahnhof for advice :”you gotta long train please” ; I said to them. they ot understandin the impost of my free mind could not advise. Only when I explained in detail that I wanted to go anywhere in Europe that was at least 8 hours away could they suggest a destination – Firenze was 9 hours away. I said “YES” to this and tried as hard as I could to politely refuse their tourist information for the town. Subsequently I caught the train from Munich to Firenze, sleeping very well I may add, and alighted in mid Italy. It looked at bit rubbish so I walked round the main train station of florence and asked for a ticket to somewhere decent. I think I ended up in austria Somewhere.
