Well, well, well....I am one unhappy dolphin. Talk about being totally forgotten. This blog would be about one line if i had my way, it would say "spent the whole day in a bag". Apparently though, i have to tell you what Matt and Jess got up to.
Today, it was decided, would be a relaxing day, a time to recover from all the travelling and try to get over the cold that Matt has (and now Jess is starting to get). I have been taking my vitamins everyday so i won't be catching any colds.
So they left me at about 9am this morning and went off to do the washing and buy their train ticket for tomorrows trip to Bern. (My advice that they buy it early this time). Then it was off for a walk around Florence, and what a nice city it is, or so they tell me, i wouldnt know, being locked up in a backp........ok ok. Geez they dont let you write what your really thinking.
The Duomo - the big church in the centre of the city.
They went to the Ponte Vecchio (this is a bridge over the river that has only gold jewellery shops on it), investigated the markets that run along all the streets here and bought a supersized pizza.
The hotel where we are staying is very nice, although quite noisy at night. Last night at about 11 there was all this racket outside, it was halloween and the youngsters around the city were partying, how inconsiderate to us weary travellers.
So mostly it was just a relaxing day, Jess had a nap, Matt did crosswords. They also went and bought books for their upcoming train trips. Matt bought more harry, and Jess bought David Copperfield. I bought 101 ways to entertain a lady dolphin (thanks for the advice Pete).
Well thats about it for today folks, off to Bern, via Milan tomorrow (Matt wishes it was saturday so he could stop off at the soccer).
P.S. I'd like to hear from a few more people, so sign up and post some comments, it keeps us entertained, especially me, when im left at the hotel by myself.
Also, photos have been added to the previous entries, so go back over them and have a look.
