Travel Blogs from Naples
15th - 16th August
We caught the late train from Rome to Naples so we didn't actually get into Naples gone 9pm. As soon as we left the train station we where amazed how hectic it was. Not only was it hectic but it was really really dirty. Nothing like the other cities we had been to.
Our hotel wasn't too far away from the train …
Naples is.... Umm... Nope, there is nothing nice to say about it. We arrived late as it was just a stop over, the city is very dirty, graffiti everywhere, extremely run down buildings and the roads are terrible. Our hotel was lovely bit upon check on there were also two 'mafia looking' type guys ...
... Kinda nice but again, really dirty and full of people trying to sell the same old ****: keychains, scarves, toys that squeak, and lazer lights. Someone threw a hard piece of chewed gum at me from a car. :( Nice birthday gift. Decided maybe I should change direction.
Stopped at a grocery store and picked up goodies for dinner. Went back to my room and relaxed. I treated myself to my own room (with a king sized ...
... someone wins. We still have a chance.
We still feeling lucky. Jason and I know each other very well, and we knew we had a real shot at the grand prize as winners of the Newlywed game. We didn't know what the grand prize was, but that didn't really matter. We got dressed up in our finest wrinkled cruise wear and strutted into the theater like winners. What we didn't know was that it wasn't really the Newlywed game, but more of a "How well do you know your ...
... catacombs as well. So, hopping off the bus, I rented a bike and road down the road towards the catacombs. Since they each cost about 8 euro to visit, I decided to pick only one. I picked the oldest- the catacomb of St. Sebastian.
Although the endeavor began on a nice paved road through the first section of the park, I began to notice just how ****** the bike I rented actually was. Watching the front wheel, I watched it rotate awkwardly as ...

This hotel wasn't too bad but I think where it is would put off a lot of people. It's not too far from the train station and it seems like you have to walk through the back streets of Brooklyn to get there. The hotel was at the end of a cul-de-sac. When we walked in the receptionist was laying down on the sofa watching TV. He checked us in and showed us to our room. The room itself was too bad. It was clean, we had air con and a TV. But our double bed was two single beds pushed together which meant I was the one sleeping in crack haha. The bathroom on the other hand was nice.
Outside of the hotel was rough and rugged. Was really dirty but we kind of liked this because it gave the area some character. When we went for a wonder and brought back some pizzas the owner didn't mind at all which was good.
We were happy with this hotel because it was cheap and cheerful but for some people its not the best place to stay because of where it is. If it is a flying visit like ours then its good for that but wouldn't stay there for a week or so.
