Rome to Petrio

sunny 25 °C

I got up and headed over to the hostels cafe for breakfast. After washing down yet another chocolate filled croissant with a latte I headed over to the train station to organize my ticket back to Petrio. After waiting for half an hour in a snaking queue, leaving my bags in the hands of another women to try the automatic machines to have her run over frantically and advise me my bags were slowly being overtaken by the moving queue.... Anyway you get the picture... I eventually arrived at the counter, purchased my ticket and headed out to find the mouth of truth. I wandered for ages and finally got my bearings! With a spring in my step I charged towards the epic monument that was sure to relieve me of my hand. As I reached the Colosseum I realized that time was quickly running out so I spun about and trundled back to my hostel to get my bags. I grabbed a bite to eat and headed down platform 1 at Termini, Rome's central station, to board my train. The train ride was rather un interesting other then the odd beggar asking for cash and dodging the ticket collectors like they were the grim reaper themselves. I arrived into Sinalunga and was promptly, and to my great relief, greeted by Ugo. After arriving back "home" I poured myself a glass of wine, set my washing on and told tales of my great adventures in Paris. It was great to be home and in the company of friends!!!
