This honeymoon is getting tiring! Lots of early starts and long excursions in the heat is making us both tired. Claire event compared her fatigue to working a series of shifts on the ward. Therefore, we didn’t go out to a show last night and had another early night. It was a lovely, warm evening. We looked out from our balcony, as the ship sailed through the Mediterranean, past lots of small Italian islands. The sun had set and it was getting dark, but we were able to identify the islands by all the lighthouses shining in the night’s sky.

This morning, we woke up to find our ship had arrived in Civitavecchia. A coach took us on a long journey to Rome, which was a busy, but very beautiful city. We took in all the sights, including the Colosseum and gladiator arenas. I took a lot of photos, most of which were from the coach, as it wasn’t an on-foot tour.

As well at Rome, we were taken to another country – Vatican City. This was another stunning venue and we were able to see all the famous sights, including the square, where a new Pope is unveiled.

This was the last of our six excursions. Tomorrow, we are visiting Ajaccio, but will undertake that one independently. Finally, we will return to Spain, where we will have to opportunity to explore Cadiz, before returning to England – booo!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
