Day 21: - Half way... A drive to Rome!

WOW, we are half way already!!! I can't believe it really, as we have been on the go all of the time! If I had not been so busy with the conference and a couple of meetings here and there, I do not know WHAT or WHERE we would have been!

Anyways, what did we do today? After a slightly (15 mins) later breakfast, we headed out into Florence to do some last minute shopping etc, and to visit the Palace which was also great! Infront of it is a (copy) of the statue David.

Inside was also great, but as I had packed my camera (David was from my mobile phone), other shots are not worth posting! BUT, after checking out of the hotel, we headed up to the Michelangelo Lookout to have another look over Florence and some lunch before heading to Rome.

Once on the road, I literally fell right back into driving on the wrong side of the car/road. In fact, on the motorway, I even got up a fair speed of 155klm/h! I was on fire!

So we got into Rome, and to the hotel without a hassel, but when I got the file for the return address for the hire car, there was NO address there, but instead simply RM6 (where ever that is)! I only had 10 mins to get there, oh well, it was 10 mins late! I got back to the hotel, and we headed out to get some dinner and a walk (as if we hadn't done enough of THAT already!!!) ;)

So, what will tomorrow bring? Who knows, but it will most likely involve a bus tour, a few visits to a couple of old places and the like... At least I dont HAVE to drive!



  1. See, you could do it! Great pictures, as usual. I think perhaps you all are getting a little weary! Soon you will be on the ship, and you'll have a slightly slower pace. I think it will be good for all.

  2. Oh yes, forgot to mention how great that candy shop looks!
