We've embraced the 'Slow' philosophy as a way of life - what's the hurry?. Taking time to smell the roses (usually on a glass of Viognier) is more our style. Having spent more then 3 years on the road, slow travel has become a way of life. We have revised our plans completely and now focus on quality, not quantity, slowly.
We’re just back from our flying visit to
the Italian capital. What a blast! It went by in a flurry of eating and
drinking and wearing our feet to the bone. You’ll be pleased to know that Rome
is still vey fabulous.
We loved catching up with Sally and Denis,
having plenty of laughs over many bottles of Prosecco. As we’d really done Rome last December, we just did a
few good churches, the eerie Catacombs, and loads of characterful bars.

We were staying in a dive near Termini
Station, cheap but clean and almost comfortable (apart from the bed and
shower!). It was like a sort of ‘Country Warp’ one minute we were in Rome and
the next, Bangladesh. Happily we didn’t need to spend much time at our digs. It
served the purpose! We prefer to spend our money on good wine.
And now for the weather report. It was HOT
and SUNNY!!!- fabulous with balmy
starry nights and a full moon. Now back in Bonn it’s cold and grey – groan. We are
planning a Boris trip next week to Dresden and Prague. Pray for sunny weather.
