    It was a very very long day

    September 9, 2019, Ligurian Sea ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Ok so, imagine driving in Italy, you drive up to a gasstation, you take the pump, doesn’t work, you need to pay first, do let’s try this again after trying a few different cards. Ok so at some point you realise the pump is black instead of green, diesel!?! What the f*ck! Who the F switched nozzles?! Thank God it was an easy fix but that was the dumbest thing and I never want to talk about it again.Read more

    Day 48c. Cadiz, Spain

    September 21, 2019, Ligurian Sea ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    We walked under the La Rosa Arch and to the magnificent Plaza de la Catedral and visited the Cadiz Cathedral. It was 5€ entrance to the Cathedral and Bell Tower with an audio guide. The Cathedral was enormous and ornate with gold and silver and stunning statues, paintings and leadlight windows. The Crypt was the largest I have seen almost the same floor plan as the church.Read more

    Genoa, Italy, part 4

    July 25, 2019, Ligurian Sea ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Finally, we headed back to the port, had a pasta and campari and Robin had a beer. Our last visit was to the the Museo Galata del Mare (Maritime Museum). This place was amazing! So much history, but the life-size boats were incredible and we could go on them and see how sailers lived and worked. Each of the five floors were a different period from 1100s to current time. Robin was over museums by now so he left me and the second floor to wander on my own.

    By far the best was the floor where the Italians traveled by sea to America. We walked from the docks in the late 1800s, to loading luggage on board, to the bunk rooms, officers' quarters, to landing in America, off the ship, to tiny B&B rooms. Then it changed to an early 1900s passenger ship, then to a submarine. Awesome!

    We were back on board at about 7pm, had a shower, rest and off for dinner at 8pm.

    Florence tomorrow. Eight hour trip. My feet already hurt, they'll be raw by tomorrow night.

    Genoa, Italy, part 3

    July 25, 2019, Ligurian Sea ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Next stop was the shopping district to buy me a tank top - it got up to 34c and I'd worn a linen shirt which was drenched in sweat after 1.5 hours on the top deck of the bus. Ten minutes in one shop and two tops for 14€ and we were off again and I was feeling much cooler.

    Stop two was the Christopher Columbus monument. Good, but not a lot to see. So we were back on the bus and stopped at Portello which is a lift that goes up a hill for amazing panoramic views of Genoa. Then we walked down a beautiful cobbled and steep path to the bus.

    Genoa, Italy, part 1

    July 25, 2019, Ligurian Sea ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    What a day! Off the boat at 8.30am, back on at 6.30pm. It's now 10pm and I finally writing up our day.

    We were booked for an historical tour of Genoa, but we assume it wasn't fully booked, so was cancelled so we did a hop on hop off bus. 10 minute walk to the bus.

    First it was a full round trip of the city to decide where to stop. First place off was Cattedrale San Lorenzo, a stunning cathedral from the mid 1200s.

    Genoa, Italy, Part 2

    July 25, 2019, Ligurian Sea ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Then it was off to the Piazza de Ferrari E Palazo Ducale, a royal palace dating back to about the 1600s. A lot of it had private exhibitions happening, but we went into the prison and up to the tower. That's was so fascinating. It was almost unchanged from the 1600s and still had original prisoners' pictures and writings on the walls. We also saw the tower prison for the elite or royal prisoners in the tower - quite respectable for a prison, even had windowsRead more
