Sicilian adventures

Monday, 10 Nov 2008 | Views [1219] | Comments [4]

I’m sitting in my room in Catania looking for an excuse not to do the work that is looming ominously over my head……so a post it is! Sicily is remarkably different to mainland Italy, well, the northern part at least. I have to admit, when we first arrived ... Read more >

Tropea and the middle of bf nowhere

Sunday, 9 Nov 2008 | Views [1619] | Comments [2]

You know, it’s kinda amazing how amazed I continue to be after travelling for so long. Mind you, I have become somewhat indifferent to ‘beautiful churches’, ‘interesting museums’ and ‘gorgeous panoramic views’. Yet I am still surprised at the disparity ... Read more >

Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast

Monday, 3 Nov 2008 | Views [689] | Comments [1]

Apologies to my dedicated readers for the lackadaisical approach I’ve taken to my journal upkeep of late….we’re travelling more slowly and hence I have a lot less to report. Add to that that I’ve been working a bit recently and you have my excuse. ... Read more >

Rainy days

Tuesday, 16 Sep 2008 | Views [806] | Comments [2]

It’s hard to believe that in just under 3 days I will have left Italy and be travelling solo again for a couple of weeks. What possessed me to plan to leave Italy so soon? Am I crazy? Despite having accommodation booked, I’m almost considering staying ... Read more >

Touring with the olds

Sunday, 14 Sep 2008 | Views [437] | Comments [2]

“Fair go”. Stiff bickies Dad, it’s my blog, I’ll call you what I damn well like! I also apologise for the lack of description and detail in this blog – lack of sleep has melted my brain. Anyway, I had the pleasure of being tour guide for my parents, ... Read more >

Hungover in Bologna

Friday, 5 Sep 2008 | Views [622]

Well, I am bloody tired still. After our adventures in Venice we could not wait to get back into bed. So bloody well worth it though! Anyway, after saying a nearly teary goodbye to Sara and others, we boarded a regional train to Bologna. We couldn’t ... Read more >

Viva la vida Venezia!!

Friday, 5 Sep 2008 | Views [497] | Comments [3]

Once upon a time in a land far, far away (donkey), there was a beautiful town that sat on water. Indeed, instead of roads and cars, the main transport aside from walking the narrow laneways between the buildings was on the canals in gondolas. Now, ... Read more >

Return to Firenze

Tuesday, 2 Sep 2008 | Views [499] | Comments [2]

You are so incredibly lucky that Chelsea sleeps on the train and consequently I have time to update my journal so frequently! The poor little girl is so tuckered out from walking around the beauty that is Italia (and likely her little bug). ... Read more >

Roma with the Chopmeister

Monday, 1 Sep 2008 | Views [564] | Comments [4]

I certainly have a nice feeling of contentment right about now. After a teary reunion at the beautiful *cough* Termini station on Saturday with the fam, I’ve spent a full day in Rome with them (kinda). It was so great to see them – you don’t realise ... Read more >

A day in Roma

Wednesday, 23 Jul 2008 | Views [674]

Where do I begin? I have lots to tell, so I might split this into two sections. We arrived in Rome only for a couple of days so that Snuffy could put in his passport application so that we will be able to get visa applications and what not. We ... Read more >
