All roads lead back to Rome

Buongiorno readers! It is currently about 2:42pm in Roma. This blog is coming up awfully late because we have been super busy today (also had a slight sleep in!). Yesterday wasn’t the biggest day, but it was definitely one of the best days. We started the day off in our shitty hotel near Cinque Terre […]

Cinque Terre

Buongiorno from Pisa. It is currently 10:30am and we are on our way back to Rome. Yesterday was a pretty relaxed day in the postcard-esque Cinque Terre. The day started waking up in Milan. We decided to skip breakfast for a bit of extra sleep because we didn’t get home until late last night. We […]

Lake Garda + Milan

Buongiorno! It’s 9am and we’re on the road to Cinque Terre. We weren’t expecting to have such a big day yesterday but we did so much again. We had the classic breakfast again this morning – so many croissants! I (Aimee) couldn’t do this sweet breakfast for the rest of my life. When there’s bacon […]

Full day in Venice

Salute! It is currently 1pm and we are on the bus travelling to Milan. Yesterday was a massive day. The day started with a decent wake up at 8am with us catching the boat into Venice. The thing about Venice is that it is being destroyed by mass tourism. It is a big port for […]

Verona + Venice

Buongiorno! It is currently 7:30am and we are in the hotel in Venice. It is a nice hotel again with working air conditioning and good wi-fi. These things make a difference. Yesterday was huge. We left the hotel early, but not before ducking to the little cafe next door to the hotel and grabbing a […]

Buonasera from Firenze. It is currently 6:20 in the evening and we have a little bit of downtime so we decided to get a start on today’s blog post (even though we still have dinner to go). It has been a full day in beautiful Florence. We are really enjoying it here. We woke up […]

Pompeii + a night in Florence

Buongiorno from beautiful Florence. It is currently 7:50am and we slept pretty well last night. It’s been really hard getting into a regular sleeping pattern because we have just been run off our feet and trying to fit everything into the day has hurt the sleep, but last night was good. This morning we left […]

Sorrento day 2 – Isle of Capri

Buongiorno from beautiful Sorrento. It is 5:30am and we just woke up after a decent sleep last night. The day was yet again massive and filled with tons of things which is usual for Contiki. Contiki is a very fast paced and exhausting way to travel, but it is also very rewarding because you do […]

Vatican City + Sorrento day 1

Buongiorno from Sorrento. It is currently 5am in lovely Sorrento – slowly beating the jet lag…slowly. Yesterday was another big day. The weather has been quite hot which has been a big change from home where it has been snowing – or so I hear. This morning we had breakfast included at the hotel. It […]

Rome Day 2 – Contiki Start

Buongiorno from Roma! So when I said in that last blog that we were going to get some sleep after writing it, well our body clocks did not agree with us. We have been up since midnight and it is now 9PM Italy time – another long, but excellent day. The plan for this morning […]
