Nev and Patsyanns' Round The?World?Trip 2006/7
June 12th Rome
Woke at 7 have to get a lift to the bus stop, bus to the airport then transfer to terminal, then plane to Rome!? Well after one plane a train a metro train 2 buses we got here around 4.30 and that's only because a girl on the bus told us where to get off for the camp. Not very helpful at the front cabin. Had a look around and it looks lovely , set in a big forrest but in the middle of nowhere. Tennis courts, swimming pool a shop and a cafe bar. Got cleaned up and went to the cafe bar got the feeling we weren't wanted, no one spoke English and we don't speak Italian, trying to order food was a nightmare, but we managed it in the end went to bed at 8.30.
June 13thNev went for a run and found the supermarket. We walked to the supermarket and bought only a few things to see us over as it was uphill all the back, we also have nothing to cook with or on. Had bananas, milk and biscuits for breakfast. Took water and fruit to the pool but found out we could not go in without a swimming hats! Went to bed at 9.30.
June 14th (lets hope it gets better) got the bus to the metro station and then the metro into Rome. Went to the Treve Fountain, St Peters Square and the Vatican. Found an internet cafe and e mailed home. Got the metro and bus back to the camp, had bread and cheese for tea.
Thursday June 15th Stayed at the camp and sunbathed by the pool had to but swimming hats from the shop they only had bright red! We looked like a couple of matchsticks. Watched England beat Trinidad 2-0 in the world cup. Only 5 of us in the bar and we had to listen to it in Italian. Cheese and bread for tea, livin the dream. Met two women from Hartlepool had a laugh with them.
Friday June 16thWent into Rome again could not get into the Vatican the queue was huge. Saw the Colosseum, had lunch in a steak house near the train station. Our first hot meal in 5 days. Sorted our route to Budapest via coach to the airport, got back to the camp and watched football in the bar, then played cards outside our cabin in the forrest, lots of bats flying around went to bed at 10. text Graham his birthday today.
