- Pompeii and the pink umbrellaToday I went to Pompeii. I made an early start (although my perspective of early has clearly changed over the last month as waking up at 8 is an absolute luxury usually) and caught the Circumvesuviana to Pompeii.

- Fare una Passeggiata a San LucaOne of the things to tick off on your list of must-do's in Bologna is the walk up to San Luca. The cathedral was built on the top of a hill 300m above Bologna in the mid-1600's and the 3.8km Posted by hotels_airports in Faccio un Giro... | Sep 30, 2014

- Coast of AmalfiThis morning I left Rome and made my way South to the Coast of Amalfi. My desire to come here can entirely be traced back to the Steve Harley song by the same name (YouTube it).

- Day 115 and 116We have spent the last two days relaxing, doing school work (much to the kids' disgust!), washing, buying food, eating food, planning ahead for the trip, and the girls went swimming. Not much to tell!

- Day 114 - Galo dell'InfernaccioWe felt the need to stretch our legs today so set off in the car and drove up into the hills for a walk that was recommended to us. We arrived at the end of the winding road and parked Posted by thepuks in Puks' Europe trip 2014 | Sep 28, 2014

- Tuscany We left Florence in a hire car and had a lovely drive through quintessential Tuscan countryside to our next destination, San Gimignano. A walled city with 14 towers, we had yet another gorgeous traditional stone apartment. We really have found Posted by kazandjim in Autumn in September | Sep 27, 2014

- Scherzi di VenerdìThe phrase "lost in translation" came to mind instantly when the closest that I could translate "Friday Funnies" into was "Scherzi di Venerdì". Unfortunately it doesn't quite roll off the tongue in the way that I'd hoped... Anyway here is Posted by hotels_airports in Faccio un Giro... | Sep 26, 2014
- Day 112 - San Benedetto del TrontoBuongiorno!
Today we did a few jobs in the morning, like wash our very dirty car, then after lunch we headed left to the coast. The drive is mostly on straight roads, through agricultural areas and lots of small towns. About Posted by thepuks in Puks' Europe trip 2014 | Sep 25, 2014
- Mercato Delle TerreI'm a creature of habit and those habits have followed me to Bologna. While the digestivi aisle in my local PAM is very much to my liking, the fresh food section is not - it reminds me of supermarkets at Posted by hotels_airports in Faccio un Giro... | Sep 25, 2014
- Roma - day of the newThe weather in Rome has been awful for the last 24 hours or so. Starting from last night it was very stormy with thunder, lightning and heavy rain. That threw a spanner in the works with my plans for today Posted by TravellingEm in Em Goes Travelling | Sep 25, 2014
- Roma primo giornoOur hostel is one floor of an apartment building, so this morning while getting ready we were serenaded by another resident practising piano. It feels like being in a film, with an instrumental background to all your actions.

- Day 111 - Ascoli PicenoI was up late due to my work call back to NZ last night so slept in until about 10am. Once up I realised that the boys hadn't been down for breakfast either. Teenagers! After some late breakfast we packed Posted by thepuks in Puks' Europe trip 2014 | Sep 24, 2014

Not much to tell about today. Up late, did washing etc.
Groceries in Aso. VERY frustrating buying groceries in Germany, Austria and Italy. So little choice of products. France and UK had the best supermarkets. Here there is a lot Posted by thepuks in Puks' Europe trip 2014 | Sep 24, 2014

Today I left Barcelona and flew to Rome. The hostel here is much better for me than the one in Barcelona. There is more space, it is less of a party hostel and Posted by TravellingEm in Em Goes Travelling | Sep 23, 2014
- A Milano in Treno Veloce.Venerdì scorso sono andato a Milano. Ho preso la Frecciarossa - un treno molto veloce! Questo tipo dal treno non esiste in Australia - mi dispiace dire. Va quasi 300 chilometri all'ora. Bologna a Milano 63 minuti. Favoloso!

- Day 9 and Day 5 of bike rideThis morning was unusual in that it had rained during the night. This worked out perfectly as our day started out with a walking tour and this allowed the moisture to be absorbed from our biking paths. Posted by Msdimond in Tuscany Trip | Sep 22, 2014
