Hello again from the heat wave that is Bologna,

Yep it is boiling here in the heart of Italy - somewhat too hot round 35 degrees.  But never mind as more adventures has finally seen Heather claim her ring!  (Finally she whispers in my lug!)  We couldn't find one in Milan but a short walk to a jewellers and there it was - gleaming in the window!  Heather shot inside and after a (3 hour diliberation - or so it felt like!) she got it! 


 

Here it is!

We arrived here expecting a sh*thole of a hotel for the price and the scramble of a last minute rush to book it but it has turned out perfectly.  The hotel although cheap is a lovely and scenic 10 mins walk past leaning towers and medievil (as is the rest of Bologna - beautiful!) and has all the modcons including mini-bar!!

We have spent the majority of the time here just saying wow and it looks like a medievil film set and it is much more relaxing than Milan!

We have walked round the squares, looked at markets and even bought fish and chips!!  We have been good and finally (after a month on the road) decided that today would be the day we did some washing!!  It was quite an experience trying to work the machines in Italian but so desperate were we, that we got there in the end!!

On too Florence tommorrow - we can't wait for that!
