Content: Starting my Val d'Orcia tour by arriving with the train to Asciano. I found a very pretty place in Val d'Orcia at Couchsurfing. It's located near Trequanda where the German artist Brigitte Deval lives. She's producing fabulous dolls, even having the b&b. She's waiting for me at the train station while I enjoy the scenic views during few stops.
