Oh No What Have I Done?





We are in a new town 4 miles from the coast, not much to see, stopped at a restaurant for a quick lunch and ended up buying the 2nd most expensive meal of my life !!!

I thought the kids steaks were going to be like burgers, at 4.50 euros each. Turned out that I had mis-read the menu and they were 45 euros. Total bill was 185 euros !!! which is nearly what we are paying for 2 rooms in tonight’s hotel which is a 4 star !
I had to go on a long walk on my own afterwards to calm down.

One more espresso


I’m loving having a coffee instead of a beer, when in a bar which is odd for me! Half a teaspoon of sugar, quick stir, 2 sips later and its gone. Watching the barista’s is good entertainment too, but it is so much easier using a coffee pod.

Palatine Hill



Collisium is good but Palatine Hill is more interesting and the ruins are much bigger than I expected. We had to dash from shaded area to shaded area to stay alive, as it is 34 c.

Derek’s Birth Certificate

Just as well Derek brought his birth certificate as it for him a 12 euro discount at the Colliseum ! They were asking for ID to prove he was a pensioner and be was the first to have a birth certificate on him. He has carried that around for 60 years and this was the first time it came in handy.
