Day Four had us docking in Napoli (Naples) and then a bus ride to...a town...and then a boat cruise Positano.
Notice the truly awesome hairdo I'm sporting. I call it "Please, strange lady, wait til my hair looks like monkeys did it and THEN snap the photo."
We were in Tour Group Number 10.
Some tour guides should have carried ropes and harnesses for the more, umm, annoying persons incapable of listening to a single, solitary instruction.
Stunning scenery. But the Canadian in me kept thinking "How do they plow those roads in winter?"
Well...all right then...why don't we just take your word for it?
Ahhhh, Pompeii. A very sad and interesting place to visit. Our tour guide pronounced the volcano as
Yup, with her lips out to the car.
Pompeii was built on the side of a hill, we hiked alot! These were single family homes, just basically townhouses, there were lots of them.
Home of a wealthy family in Pompeii
All the streets are the width of one chariot.
The volcano...the cone is missing off the top of mountain and there's a huge crater. What, you don't see the crater?
THAT is the crater.
Use your fingers to trace where the peak should have been. Scary, eh?
Nobody had a chance.
Pompeii today, a lovely port city with some pretty great gelato!
Sailing away from Napoli, heading toward Greece.
Our next day was a sea day, so we did fun stuff on the ship, like go to an art auction and what does my travel partner do?? Wins a limited edition!!
But it was also formal night, so we went to the dining room for dinner. And what arrives at my place at the table??? Yes, it's as big as it looks, and as good!!
But me and auction patron #179 didn't have time to stay, as we had to go to the gallery and choose the mattes and the frame. So the cake was delivered to our stateroom.
Number #2 on my bucket list, the island of Santorini.
The view from where we arrived in the morning.
Just wait til you see the views from Fira, the Akotiri excavations and the cable car ride!!!
