Today has been all about taking a step backwards, once more, into Ancient Roman Culture. Having previously visited Hadrian's Imperial Villa at Tivoili, we did have an idea what to expect and of course Pompeii is well known the world over as the city that perished in the Vesuvius eruption of AD 79, but the sheer scale of it is overwhelming. We did not manage to visit it all or Herculaneum, it's smaller cousin similarly destroyed the other side of the volcano. One of us did feel ...

All organised to go for a shop (the shopkeeper was picking us up and taking us - even more civilised is that we can call through an order and they will deliver) when I got a call through on Skype and so the girls left while I had a lovely chat with my grandchildren. The heavens opened up and it has ...
