Rome, by all means Rome...


P1030392

As you read this post I will be somewhere in the air over Europe, on my way to Italy! Due to the whole 'getting a job' not working out quite as I'd hoped I have some time on my hands and a bit of money burning a hole in my pocket so I decided to do the whole travel thing. I'm not much for backpacking, or roughing it, so I decided a month travelling round Italy sounded much more civilised (and more interesting to me!) than Thailand or Africa...

I'm starting in Rome with my friend Kate, then travelling down to Naples to see Pompey and Herculaneum with my Classical Civilisation obsessed friend Kat. After that I'll do a few days in Florence, visit Pisa and Siena, and finish in Milan just as Milan Fashion Week is ending for some shopping as an antidote to all that culture!

Consequently my blogging will be a bit minimalistic over the next month. Although I hope to keep up the tweeting in earnest, I'm not sure enough of my Internet connections, time constraints and ability to find anything to talk about other than pizza and renaissance art to keep up any regular sort of blogging schedule!
