So, I’m heading to Italy with my children. We are going to stay in Naples and Rome, mainly to see the Roman sights. But there’s a catch. We are doing the entire journey, from Cornwall to Naples (and back), by train.
It has taken much planning and hair pulling (my own hair 😉 ) to sort out trains for each leg and accommodation in both Naples and Rome (plus a night in Paris on the way back), but it’s finally all booked…
Now we just have the other things to sort out, like travel insurance (which is done), EHIC cards (which are ordered), suitcases, packing, activities for the train and some sort of neat tidy portable filing system for the reams of paper tickets and booking confirmations I now have sat in a pile under the passports.
My intention is to keep this blog updated with our adventures, both en route and whilst there… I will try, I promise, there may even be the odd picture 😉
Train is definitely the more expensive way to get there, but I’m hoping it will make the journey into an adventure!
