Silvio Berlusconi's name has been coming up a lot with our tour director. She's very proud of her country but talks a lot about how Berlusconi let the people of Italy down with his scandalous behaviour and business practices ... not cool 😡
There are A LOT of tunnels in Italy! We cross the country by driving through the mountains not by driving over them I've discovered.
One of my favourite churches so far has been the San Giovani Evangilista in Ravenna. It was originally built for use as a monastery, but became a Church in the 18th century. I really liked the gothic architecture and mosaics.
The toilets at our comfort stop this morning were of the 'old style' i.e. holes in the ground - I wasn't expecting that!
Grazie to everyone whos been spurring me on with my blog, grazie grazie xx ( yes I am using all the Italian phrases I studied up on before I left NZ)
Oh and 'pronto' is used when answering the phone (like us saying'hello') - in this instance it means 'I'm ready' or 'I'm ready to talk to you'... interesting...
