I hope you have a great time Beckie.

Cacoethes 08-10-2020 07:04 PM

Sounds awesome np!

No the song has no relation to Milan at all. That's why I'm confused

Thanks lindsay!

not_so_insig 08-10-2020 07:05 PM

My ex psych came from Milan. At least that's where he did his degree in medicine in.

yoyogirl 08-10-2020 07:26 PM

Groans! Yet another repeat of the Richard Osman House of games. How depressing? I wish i could watch ambulance or 999 anything is better than daytime **** with a bunch of D list celebrities. In a couple of weeks another “delightful” return of it takes two. Zzz I wanna sleep zzz

nonperson 08-10-2020 07:33 PM

Switch to E4 for Big Bang Theory.

yoyogirl 08-10-2020 08:55 PM

Not a fan of that at the moment.

Cacoethes 08-10-2020 09:14 PM

Just arrived in Milan!

nonperson 08-10-2020 09:37 PM

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

Exciting, Beckie!

not_so_insig 08-10-2020 09:47 PM

Taskmaster is on next Thursday 9 pm Channel 4.

Cacoethes 08-10-2020 09:58 PM

Yay taskmaster!

one_step_closer 09-10-2020 11:49 AM

Morning. What do you all have planned?

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 12:33 PM

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 12:46 PM

Very nearly afternoon here!

Just work for me today, blah.

Very jealous of your museum visit there, Beckie.

yoyogirl 09-10-2020 12:57 PM

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

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 03:29 PM

Ah work sucks np

The museum was so good!

nonperson 09-10-2020 04:07 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 04:16 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 07:00 PM

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

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 07:16 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 07:24 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 07:31 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 07:38 PM

Cool surprise. =)

How's your Italian?

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 07:42 PM

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

nonperson 09-10-2020 07:49 PM

How do you navigate without speaking the language?!

That would terrify me. o.o

tamobhuuta 09-10-2020 07:52 PM

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

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 07:53 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 07:56 PM

The New Forest is very nice. =)

Everyone's having adventures - I feel left out!

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 08:39 PM

You need to go on an adventure np!

nonperson 09-10-2020 08:56 PM

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

Cacoethes 09-10-2020 08:59 PM

Yeah I get what you mean

nonperson 09-10-2020 09:01 PM

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

not_so_insig 09-10-2020 09:01 PM

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

nonperson 09-10-2020 09:16 PM

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

tamobhuuta 09-10-2020 09:29 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 09:47 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 10:23 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 10:25 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 10:26 AM

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

nonperson 10-10-2020 10:27 AM

Cake for breakfast is goooooood!

tamobhuuta 10-10-2020 10:29 AM

Mmmm tastey cake.

Cacoethes 10-10-2020 10:36 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 04:13 PM

What's the church of bones?

Cacoethes 10-10-2020 04:16 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 04:19 PM

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

Cacoethes 10-10-2020 04:29 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 04:32 PM

A room to hold bones... O.o

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

Cacoethes 10-10-2020 04:35 PM

I know!

The weather is great!
Sunny and very warm!

nonperson 10-10-2020 05:59 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 06:05 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 06:07 PM

My heating is on right now for a quick burst.

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