Hi its my turn.
Well to say we are having a ball would be an understatement.
We left Roma via a taxi heading off on a freeway, caused concern for a moment as we were only a 20mins walk from Termini. Anyway it turned out to be OK. At the station, we were only advised of the platform 15 minutes before the train arrived. Nothing like Aus. When boarding the handle broke on the larger bag, Sandra's extras. When we arrived at our compartment, there was a sign saying NO ENTRY.
A guard appeared and tried to move us to another compartment. We (Sandra) waved her hands about and finally he removed the sign and we stayed put. It would appear that he wanted the comp for himself.
Otherwise a safe journey to Napoli. Arrived, first impression dirty, after a friendly driver engaged us, we located acc about 30 min walk from station in an old apartment building (hotel) with a cable lift. Very quaint.
We jumped on a train and went to Pompeii, absolutely wonderful experience.
Next day we went by train to Salerno, then the bus from hell to Amalfi. Beautiful, had a great lunch and returned by ferry.
Times out will update soon. Ciao
