What a month October has been for me. In Newcastle Sting joked with me "haven't you got a home to go to?" I have, and I've even spent the bulk of the time at work, but I have been out of the office with whirlwind trips around the UK and now to see Sting in Florence. This was going to be my grand tour (or was that 2007-8?) where I turn into Renaissance man, and learn all those "things they would not teach me of in college?" Time to soak up culture on a scale of unbelievable beauty, awe inspiring artwork and a glass or two of Chianti. Even the odd shower of rain, couldn't dampen my spirits. Did I mention Pizza? I am reliably informed that some fans were lucky enough to see Sting having a quick Pizza opposite the Teatro, before the sound check, whilst I was still admiring Renaissance artwork.
