We are sat in the Firenze Santa Maria station awaiting our train.

One observation we’ve noticed is that Dogs go everywhere with people here - why can’t we do that in England? I’d love to take Robbie to Sainsburys! Well maybe not sainsburys, but out and about with the looks of disgust if you step out of the local dog park “zone”.

Today is hot - again. Forecast for 33C. I’m going to whinge, but it’s too hot! I’d give anything for a day back in sub 25c temperatures just to let my body “chill out”!

We are staying in an apartment in Rome for the next 3 nights. It has two creature comforts we are longing for… A sofa. And a washing machine.

How sad are we?!
