Well you did say anything would be better than what you were watching, yoyo...

Exciting, Beckie!

not_so_insig 08-10-2020 08:47 PM

Taskmaster is on next Thursday 9 pm Channel 4.

Cacoethes 08-10-2020 08:58 PM

Yay taskmaster!

one_step_closer 09-10-2020 10:49 AM

Morning. What do you all have planned?

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 11:33 AM

Afternoon lindsay!
At least, it's Afternoon here!

I've just been to the da vinci museum. It was awesome!

What do you have planned?

nonperson 09-10-2020 11:46 AM

Very nearly afternoon here!

Just work for me today, blah.

Very jealous of your museum visit there, Beckie.

yoyogirl 09-10-2020 11:57 AM

I'm seeing a close friend today for a catch up.

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 02:29 PM

Ah work sucks np

The museum was so good!

nonperson 09-10-2020 03:07 PM

It does suck. Only a little bit left to go now though.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. =) What else have you been up to?

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 03:16 PM

That's good

Lots and lots of walking and getting lost!
I did stumble upon a medieval castle. One of my greater archaeological finds :p
It had a moat and everything!

nonperson 09-10-2020 06:00 PM

Nice. Got to love a castle with a moat. =o

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 06:16 PM

I also saw an actual submarine today! And an old steam train. The wheels were as tall as me! They really don't look that big in the movies!

nonperson 09-10-2020 06:24 PM

Ooh, a submarine isn't an every day sighting! Steam trains are cool too and yes, much more massive than they look on tv! I've climbed in and out of some and that was scary. =P

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 06:31 PM

I wasn't expecting to see it! I turned a corner and bam! Submarine!
You're brave! I wouldn't want to be climbing in and out of them!

nonperson 09-10-2020 06:38 PM

Cool surprise. =)

How's your Italian?

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 06:42 PM

My Italian is terrible!
I pretty much know 'hello' 'goodbye' 'thank you' 'you're welcome' and 'good evening'

nonperson 09-10-2020 06:49 PM

How do you navigate without speaking the language?!

That would terrify me. o.o

tamobhuuta 09-10-2020 06:52 PM

Milan sounds very exciting! I'm on holiday too, just to the New Forest.

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 06:53 PM

I get by!
And most people speak English anyway.
I do try to learn new phrases because I don't want to be one of these people who just expect everyone to speak English to me but I do manage

Ninja post tamo!
It is exciting!
Oh I love the New Forest. It is lovely there

nonperson 09-10-2020 06:56 PM

The New Forest is very nice. =)

Everyone's having adventures - I feel left out!

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 07:39 PM

You need to go on an adventure np!

nonperson 09-10-2020 07:56 PM

Adventures in the world don't feel safe right now. =/

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 07:59 PM

Yeah I get what you mean

nonperson 09-10-2020 08:01 PM

Are you having to quarantine for two weeks when you come back?

not_so_insig 09-10-2020 08:01 PM

Dont come to Wales either as most of it is high coronavirus wise.

nonperson 09-10-2020 08:16 PM

That's well outside my 5 mile travel radius anyway.

tamobhuuta 09-10-2020 08:29 PM

It is pretty here. But no opportunity to use my school languages. Small disaster, i have left my crucifix at home, i was so sure i packed it.

Cacoethes 10-10-2020 08:47 AM

I can't find a definitive answer online np but I imagine I will have to quarantine when I get back.

Oh no tamo! Will you be ok without it?

I had an early night last night.
I was exhausted!
Breakfast time now!

nonperson 10-10-2020 09:23 AM

What's on offer for breakfast? Personally if I was in Italy I'd want pizza for breakfast but I'm sure that's not an acceptable thing over there. =)

Cacoethes 10-10-2020 09:25 AM

It's not :p
We have a selection of pastries and meats and cheeses.
Also the usual cereal and toast.
And a coffee machine.
Oh and also cake. I just had a huge slice of cake

nonperson 10-10-2020 09:26 AM

I think Italy is on the safe list at the moment: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavi...avel-corridors

nonperson 10-10-2020 09:27 AM

Cake for breakfast is goooooood!

tamobhuuta 10-10-2020 09:29 AM

Mmmm tastey cake.

Cacoethes 10-10-2020 09:36 AM

I hope so np because quarantine would be a pain!

It was a very tasty cake tamo.
And a huuuge slice!

I'm on my way to the 'church of bones'
As recommended by another ryler!

tamobhuuta 10-10-2020 03:13 PM

What's the church of bones?

Cacoethes 10-10-2020 03:16 PM

I copy and pasted this:
In 1210, when an adjacent cemetery ran out of space, a room was built to hold bones. A church was attached in 1269. Renovated in 1679, it was destroyed by a fire in 1712. A new bigger church was then attached to the older one and dedicated to Saint Bernardino of Siena.

Unfortunately it wasn't open even though google said it was.
But the cathedral was 5 minutes away so I went there and it was beautiful! And massive!

tamobhuuta 10-10-2020 03:19 PM

that's cool but it's a shame you couldn't go inside. Milan sounds amazing.

Cacoethes 10-10-2020 03:29 PM

Yes I was looking forward to it.
But at least the cathedral was close!
Milan is great! I'm loving it.
I plan on going on an open top bus tour tomorrow. There is a red line and a blue line so I'll do both!

nonperson 10-10-2020 03:32 PM

A room to hold bones... O.o

Bus tour sounds good. What's the weather like?

Cacoethes 10-10-2020 03:35 PM

I know!

The weather is great!
Sunny and very warm!

nonperson 10-10-2020 04:59 PM

Perfect. =)

It keeps trying to rain here but it's not too bad. I have succumbed and put the heating on for the first time though.

Cacoethes 10-10-2020 05:05 PM

My phone says it's raining back home.

It must be rather chilly then!
I hate.putting the heating on too.
Just feels like a waste of money for some reason!

one_step_closer 10-10-2020 05:07 PM

My heating is on right now for a quick burst.

Sounds like you're seeing lots on your holiday Beckie. :-)

Cacoethes 10-10-2020 05:14 PM

Good plan lindsay! I only put it on in bursts too

I am! Its been great so far! :-D

not_so_insig 10-10-2020 06:05 PM

I have my heating coming on for 2 hours a day but it's an hour twice a day. I am cold because it's raining.

Cacoethes 10-10-2020 07:44 PM

Just had a delicious dinner of risotto, ice cream with cookies and a cocktail to finish it off!
Stuffed now!

nonperson 11-10-2020 12:11 PM

Afternoon all.

Sounds like a really nice dinner, Beckie. Are you on your bus tour yet?

Cacoethes 11-10-2020 12:17 PM

I went on a short one already. Now on the 2 hr 15 mins one. Just about to start!

nonperson 11-10-2020 12:21 PM

Oooh enjoy. =D

Is there a tour guide that speaks English so you know what you're looking at?

Cacoethes 11-10-2020 12:50 PM


There's a built in headphone thing that does 8 different languages so I'm covered!
