I've gone from this Morning of staring at St Peters Basilica to the services at a Newport Pagnall to vacuuming the house and all that entails from being on holiday but I've relaxed on holiday and despite me posting honestly I've been less active on social media. You see life isn't about the likes on social media it's the here and now and appreciating what you've got.
The end of holidays are always a shock you hold on to every scrap of memories from your holiday.
You battle through with a delinquent tea that quite frankly tastes of sorrow but people watching is a free alternative to the airport lounge. Normally you'd find me ( us the family in the airport lounge ) but we didn't do this on the flight out not coming back as Heathrow Terminal 5 is actually ok ( I always love going from Heathrow) And Fiumenco airport is pretty cool to as airport s go !
Did you know that this holiday I've walked the equivalent of two whole marathons in 37 c heat with added humidity on top ! One day it was even 42 c ( the day I got a bit of heatstroke)
I've never walked so far in my life sightseeing and soaking up the culture! so when you are walking around Rome do make sure you have comfortable airy shoes I did wear my walking shoes one day with comfortable insoles but then just wore my Fit flops after that.
They say Rome wasn't built in a day but it has certainly given me a kickstart in the fitness steaks. . (Oooooh steak )
Of course when in Rome you eat as the Italians do
When coming to Rome do pack an empty water bottle as there as so many water fountains around Rome where you can fill your water bottle up for free don't buy from people flagging water in the street for one Euro, buy water from supermarkets when you need to.
Public transport is easy and cheap in Rome you can either take the Metro or bus we used the public where I have to say you can't be shy about your personal space !
Personally I don't think you really need to take a bus tour in Rome but you could do if you're short of time.Once you've taken the bus or Metro it is really easy to walk to your chosen destination such as the Trevi fountain, Vatican City and so forth.
