Rome: the final destination

So it’s a good job that I did put cushions down. I woke up about 6ish and Scarlett was laid fast asleep on the floor, on the cushions. I’m not sure IF she did fall out of bed. Or whether she tried to get out but was sleepy and just laid down lol but either way, I didn’t want to leave her there so I put her back in her bed and she then didn’t wake up until 8ish. I gave her a bottle then got her dressed so we could go down and get some breakfast. I asked Brett if he wanted to go but he said No. we went down and had some toast and OJ. We headed back up to pack the few bits we’d unpacked and then check out.

We checked out at 10:30 and started our long journey back to the train station. We asked at the station what the best way to get to the airport would be and they said bus. So we paid for a bus, at the bus station next to the station and at 11:25am we set off. We arrived at the airport just before 12. Our flight wasn’t until 4:20pm and the info for it wasn’t displayed so we decided to grab some lunch. So we found a restaurant and had some food. Scarlett fell asleep so we sat there for ages just chatting and shit. At 2:15 the display boards showed what check-in desk we needed to go to so we set off. We waited in the queue for what seemed an eternity. We finally got to the front and got our luggage checked-in. Then our boarding passes and off we headed to passport control and our gate. We went through. Brett took Scarlett to change her nappy whilst I grabbed some water for us. We got in the queue for the flight. We had to go on a shuttle bus to the plane. We finally got on the aeroplane at 4:10pm and then we took off.

Scarlett is such a brilliant traveller. I could not be more proud of her. She’s done so brilliantly. She’s been on 2 aeroplanes, 2 trains and 1 bus. Plus a few taxis. She’s just awesome.

We touched down in Rome at 5:25pm and then we picked up our luggage. We arrived at Fiuicimo terminal 1 and had to walk across from there to the train station. We booked a ticket, had a quick wee and at 6:23pm we embarked towards Roma termini. Scarlett had a bottle as she was whinging for one. We walked from the station to our hotel. We got there at 7:25pm. Finally got checked in and settled by 8pm. Brett had a shower then we headed out for dinner.

Brett had pizza and he shared with Scarlett. I had tomato and basil spaghetti. It was delish but so filling. We left and stopped at a supermarket for some bath stuff as we had run out. We got back to our apartment quite late. Scarlett and I had a shower together again and then Brett dressed her whilst I washed my hair off then I put her to bed. She took ages to go to sleep. Was almost midnight before she could be counted as “being asleep”.

Brett and I were going to watch a film in bed on the iPad but it’s too late. We need to get some kip lol

Heading into Rome tomorrow for the day. We aim to see the Trevi fountain, colosseum and a few other sights!
