Our Safari Guide……assured us he was only planning

tomorrow’s itinerary.

The Beefeater Guide had plenty of stories to tell

about The Tower of London

 

Our guide (foreground) at the Colosseum

was aware of its history and many

previously unheard of facts.

After spending…

…a damp morning in, and around,

St Mark’s square in Venice…

…moved over to Murano for lunch.


Colourful…

…Murano…

…lifted our spirits…

…in more ways than one.

 

…Surprisingly after a looong lunch…

…no-one seemed to notice the very light

drizzle still falling as we made our way

back to our ferry ride home.

The first rain we had during our European Holiday… 


was in Venice.

Rain (outside) gave us an ideal opportunity…

 

…to spend the afternoon carousing

with newly acquired friends

After last year’s fire,

I believe Notre Dame de Paris …

…will take considerable restoration to

return it to its former splendour.

Pompeii.

I was so pleased Pompeii was on our itinerary.

The lighter coloured stone in the amphitheatre seating

are restored sections.

FriendlyFriday-Coffee-Conversations

In Florence, hot, weary looking for

a cold drink and a place to sit for a while.

I ordered iced coffee…expecting a glass

of coffee flavoured milk, some ice and

at least one if not two scoops

of ice-cream to help

further chill the liquid.

Needless-to-say I was surprised to see

this cocktail/martini glass in front of me.

It did contain iced coffee.

Very strong coffee and some ice.

It was definitely a case of,

When in Florence, do as the Florentines do.

And I did.
