Goodbye Princess – hello Rome!


Beautiful pastel buildings, flowers everywhere…Portofino was lovely, especially surrounded by all that bright blue water everywhere.  Love it; love it!

Good morning!  We just finished breakfast on the Lido…industrial view this morning here in the port at Civitavecchia, so the photo above was a much nicer sight to post.  We are scheduled to disembark in about an hour, then head to the train station where we hope to leave our bags and wander around Rome for a bit.  Our flight to Cologne is at 4p, so we have time to kill.  We spend tonight in Cologne, then take the train at our leisure up to Dusseldorf tomorrow.

This has been a great cruise; we’ve met some lovely people, visited lots of new places, and take home loads of good memories.

Enjoy your weekend…what are you doing?  Life is good!  Ciao…
