Amazing pics! I love all the blue doors and the camel owner pulling out some "blue steel" for the camera!
That's exactly what he did! Lol!

Thank you! I have a canon 50D. If you're looking for a entry level SLR, I highly recommend the canon rebels.

Love, love LOVE the photos. Thanks for posting! Glad you liked Tunis as well. I was beginning to think that we were the only ones who enjoyed it!

Hello, loving your trip report and photos - how lovely your parents and your in laws get on

Had to laugh at the camel owner "posing" for the photo.

I know you have not got to it yet but Villefranche - the beach is close by and sandy???

Hi Shush! Definitely not! I'm very glad we stopped there.

It is nice we all like each other! In Villefranche we walked straight to the train station, so I didn't see the beach. Villefranche was beautiful though!

We went to the beach in Villefrench after we returned from Nice. It was a short walk from the tender pier along the road. The sand was real nice and DH said the water was not too cold for the first of June.

Thanks pixie08! I am using a Canon 50D. For most of this trip I had the 16-35L lens on, which I rented, as it is not in my budget yet.

Wednesday, April 28th, Day 7 – Naples and Pompeii

Look at the first sight that greeted us from our verandah this morning! Mt. Vesuvius!



We ate an early breakfast at Topsiders today and got off the ship early.



We declined all cab drivers (including one who followed us literally for 5 minutes with us repeating no over and over) and walked to the train station. It was supposed to be a 20 minute walk, but took us around 35. We stopped a few times for directions. We were behind an older couple from our cruise doing the same thing. We did see some neat parts of Naples.



The train station was fairly confusing, but with two other families from the cruise and some helpful Italians, we made it on to the correct train.

We decided that anything in Italy that remains still long enough, will eventually be covered in grafitti. It was everywhere!





The train ride to Pompeii was standing room only. Luckily we were only on for about 20 minutes.

You can see how excited dd was about standing:

Pompeii was huge. Just stunningly, huge. There is no way you can cover it in a day. We spent several hours there though. It was super hot in the sun and dirt, and I gladly paid 3 Euros for a coke zero at some point.

You can see Mt. Vesuvius in the background of a few of these:

We took the train back and started the long walk through the city. We toyed with taking a bus, but decided to hoof it. By the time we got back on board, we’d been walking for about 7 hours straight. We were earning our meals!

We ate a VERY late lunch (as in two hours before dinner) on deck 9 and went swimming again.

We ate dinner at Animators, and saw Oceans in the big theater. The part about the sea turtles was too traumatic that late in the day!

We headed for bed right after. We had a long day ahead of us tomorrow - Rome!

Wonderful pics from all the ports! The camel pics were awesome.

I'm probably gonna come off sounding silly saying this, but I think it's cool that the characters have all the different outfits.

Can't wait to read about Rome.
