After bragging about my cheap flight from Prague to Roma for weeks, I got royally dudded by Sky Europe who managed to say that the computer printout I had saying my flight was 11 pounds was not a final confirmation.  Nett result, the most expensive two hour flight of my life - dodgy Slovakian Airlines, NEVER AGAIN!!!

Either way brilliant to catch up with The Chad again after our 10 day "banana split".  Good catch up chat over some of Italy's world famous pizza and then a self directed walking tour of Roma by night.  What a beautiful place and what a pleasant surprise to see that my previously map illiterate brother has turned into a modern day Columbus in the space of a few weeks.

Managing an early start the following day it was off to Pompeii.  One of the most amazing places I have ever been and truely grateful to do it again and have more time to enjoy it.  Personally funny to be back in the square in Naples that four years ago I bought a "mobile phone" from a bunch of the local mafia and ran for my life only to find it was a box of rocks... Another superb example of Italian train timetables with our two hour train taking nearly four eventaully had us back in Roma and ready for a big one.  I think we both achieved a massive night and I finally got "The Chad" back for all his nights of snoring.

So a month of Cat - Cat travel is over and what a month it has been.  So many sights, one dent, some huge nights out (going to be hard to forget that night drinking 15 year olds under the table or wondering the streets of Amsterdam looking for the source of the light).  It has been an absolute pleasure to travel with my brother - I probably speak for all brothers in saying you never really get the chance to spend enough time together and realise just how funny and interesting your own brother is.  Cheers mate for being one hell of a travel partner, even if you are no "Goose" and your initial map work sucked!!!
