Covering 2,000 years of history in two days in sun drenched Rome the holiday club visit the Eternal City during the 150 year celebrations of the unification of Italy.
In the grip of an unexpected heat wave while the Romans seek out shade Andrew, Kim, Micky, Sue and Christine do what the English do best and go out in the midday sun to see ancient, medieval and modern Rome.
Just two paras today!
Why the brevity?
yea! why so short, are ye running out of steam? Did the heat get to you? Where is the British stamina?
I expected to read what you all did, maybe that is tomorrows’ blog!
