So yes I know where has Georgia and Karel been??
Answer is.... ITALY!!!
After the French Riviera we head off to Venice! On the way we stop in Romeo & Juliet's home of Verona where statute of Juliet and one of her boobies are showing, when you there you touch boobie that is showing for good lucky... So they say! As we where leaving one of the guys on the tour Jack almost got left behind cause he had gotten lost and the rule on the trip is if your not back at meeting stop on time you make your own way to next place as we have really strict driving rules for our bus driver that we have to follow by law.
Once we arrived in at our accommodation we had to get ready for our themed party which was had to do with the sea. There was 2 other contiki groups there also so It was fun, the guy I had met on day one from Newcastle was there so we had a dance and drink together to represent newy!
Today we went exploring through Venice the little tight alleyways & canals to find grand squares where there are many little shop, bars & marketa! Will we were there we saw the monuments of St. Mark's Sqaure and also visited the Rialto Bridge also went an saw a murano glass-blowing demonstration, then it was time to kick back and watch the city as we all went on gondolas, through the canals! Georgia and I had bought sail hats that had Venice written on them so we put them on for the ride!!
So it is off to Florence we go and on our we we stop at Pisa where we see of course the leaning tower of Pisa! Then back on the bus to Florence where we head to accommodation for some dinner and time to get change ready for a night of karaoke!!! Well once we got there they had massive jugs of cocktails and massive litre holders of beer it was amazing! So me an 2 other girls got up there and started singing to a song called Baby got back! It was the funniest thing and I thought I was never going to do it but when on holidays you do it cause you will never get to again, we all got on the bus to get home, and had a party on the bus everyone was singing and dancing having a good time the bus driver then the lights of and put blue party lights on it was the highlight of the night for me!!!
So we get up and head into to Florence where we have a guided tour around the city and see a lot of things too many to list oh and yes i did see the statue of Dave! Florence is every pretty and beautiful like the most of Italy I have seen! A group of has grab some lunch and just did some shopping and walked around until we had to wad back oh... We had a Florentine leather craft demonstration where they told what the difference between fake and real leather, after been in the city all day we head back to the accommodation to freshen up and get ready for a night out in Florence's biggest night club ( so we are told). The pasta in Florence was amazing I didn't have an pizza cause our tour guide earlier that day said the Florence is more know for there pasta which I think is true! We get to the club Space Electric Disco and its not what I thought it was going to be like more like a contiki club hardly any locals and also the fact 16 years were allowed in was werid but we still had a good night... Oh my go I forget to say they had a wet shirt competition going in the club was so weird only one girl in our group did it...(not me don't worry!)
Destination Roma!!! After a longish drive we have arrived in Roma, we we get a brief walking tour around the city so we know where things are as the next day is free time day! Laura, Alana, Jodi, Georgia & myself all grab some late lunch early dinner at this restaurant in one of the alleyways was so nice the food amazing! The waiter there was trying to pick up Georgia which was funny and entertaining. After that we head to the accommodation where that night we had a themed party once again and things time the theme was whiteboard maker. So what you do: buy a I Love Roma t-shirt and a maker and then at the party you go up to people and write little sayings or jokes or some that is personal between you guys. It was a fun night our group didn't drink at all really as the night before we had a big one but there was other contiki groups there who were out of control!
Today was free time in Roma! So we walked around and did as much as we could from Colosseum, the Roman Forum, Piazza Venezia, Trevi Foutain, Pantheon, Piazza Novona, St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City, Spanish steps, the monks bones museum (like three rooms full of bones Ewww)
Next stop Greece!!!!
