A complete lazy day by the pool today. Joe went to the shops to buy some sunscreen while I chilled listening to music on my iPad. Went up to the room for a mid afternoon snooze then headed out from the hotel at 4.30 to go around the shops. Had a lovely tagliatelle with salmon at a nearby restaurant where we saw a clone of Krystle Carrington from Dynasty, then back to the room by 8.30 for a chilled night ...

... pokies for me unfortunately so It was off to bed for a good nights sleep before an early morning and long trip on the bus to Florence, Italy via Pisa. Very much looking forward to pizza, pasta and wine and onto Rome for a tour of Vatican City.
I apologise to anyone if I haven't got back to you or messaged/called - we rarely have wifi and I don't have a phone. Hopefully once the tour is finished ill be able to work it out!
Au reviour! ...
