Provence Snow

This is what we woke up to on Wednesday the 7th Jan... Locals said that it was last like this in the 80's sometime. Very cool (for the first 2 days, then the novelty wore off!!) 
Here is our wee village

Back in Milan

We flew back to Milan on the 27th and drove home. It was a quick one hour stop over to see Jackson and Alec and then we hit the road. 

Check out the snow they got at their place for Christmas

I missed you Jackson

Me and Jackson.. (Alec was being a nutter beside us)

Xmas in Rome Part 12

Lunch of Strawberries and Chips!!!


Dad.. you found us!!!!!!

Cool fountain

These 'flower sellers' were just a joke. They prayed on people and literally stuffed the rose in your hand and then waited a few seconds and then demanded money... These people were arguing with the guy saying that he gave it to them!!! It was very funny to watch. The amount of people who just drop the flower after the guy demands his money is HUGE.... as he doesn't want to take it back from you once you have it..

Xmas in Rome Part 9

Roman Forum day... 

Here I am picking flowers in the garden

Roman Forum

Check out their swimming pools.. If you look closely you can see the steps on the top right of the main one. 

Nearing the end... We had had a disaster as Maia ALWAYS had to take a wee handbag with her on our days out and she lost it here... and this was the day she had put HEAPS of her favourite things inside it... but thank god some nice person handed it in at the exit.. I have never seen her so happy!!!
