Day one: After being up at silly o'clock in the morning, flying in bad weather for 3 hours, I finally make it into Rome where I waited excitingly for the girls to arrive.
The weather is lovely, and for it being October it feels like it is still summer. Once checked in, we are told we have been up graded to a private five bedroom,so no longer have to worry about our back packs or sharing a bathroom or bedroom with a stranger.
Once we have dumped our heavy bags(heavy being an understatement) in the room it is off to find out what the area is like. Passing by a number of old fashioned icecream shops and coffee cafes.
Once we have got our lunch sorted for tomorrow it's off to dinner having home made pizza and a cold glass of lager with old friends. Perfect way to end the 1st day, tho I must admit I am glad to be head to my bed soon.
