Week 34: Venice and Verona

Monday, 28 Nov 2011 | Views [611]

Ah fair Verona where Shakespeare doth set his most belov’d of plays! I personally don’t understand why any story where the hero and the heroine die is considered a romantic story (more like a tragedy in my opinion) but romantic would be the word I’d ... Read more >

Week 25: Pompeii and Vesuvius

Thursday, 8 Sep 2011 | Views [715]

I’ve never been so terrified during a Doctor Who episode until I re-watched the Fires of Pompeii with the knowledge that I would be there soon. Of course I was being ridiculous, because Vesuvius looked like a sweet and innocent mountain when we were ... Read more >

Week 25: Tiovoli: Hadrian’s Villa and Ville D’Este

Wednesday, 7 Sep 2011 | Views [381]

If I haven’t made a big enough deal about it in my previous entry – Rome makes a package on people who love ruins. And it’s not just in Rome, there are day trips to places outside Rome to see the ancient ruins. Tiovoli is one of them and of course ... Read more >

Week 25: Ancient and Modern Rome

Wednesday, 7 Sep 2011 | Views [528]

You can’t escape ancient Rome in this city. It’s everywhere! There are ancient structures or ruins just lying around or being excavated at the speed only Italians can complete a job. Famous ruins like the Colosseum and the Roman Forum are of course well ... Read more >

Week 16: Cinque Terra

Friday, 8 Jul 2011 | Views [519]

Whilst hiking up and down the steep terrain from Corniglia to Vernazza in Cinque Terra I started philosophising to distract myself from the heat and the pain, and came to the conclusion that I would not like to know my future. The reason why is because ... Read more >

Week 16: Tales from Tuscany – Pisa anyone?

Wednesday, 6 Jul 2011 | Views [611]

If you know anyone who’s visited Pisa and they tell you, ‘the only thing worth seeing in the Leaning Tower’, well I’d be inclined to believe them. Especially between now until 2015. Why 2015 you ask? Well your guess is as good as mine. Unless of course ... Read more >

Week 16: Tales from Tuscany – Siena and San Gimignano

Wednesday, 6 Jul 2011 | Views [506]

I had never heard of either of these two towns until I booked this day trip. It sounded like a lazy way to see two towns in one day, so naturally I was inclined to go. Of course being the naive and unworldly person I am, I didn’t realise how hilly the ... Read more >

Week 16: Tales from Tuscany – Florence/Firenze and Fiesole

Wednesday, 6 Jul 2011 | Views [781]

Watching the sunset over the River Arno is Florence is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s lit up the river so it was as if this ancient city was on fire. And with over 30 degrees Celsius almost every day it may as well have been ... Read more >
