Italia 2009: Pompeii

Experience told me that I would wake up early on my first day (after the previous days 14 hour flight) I decided to head straight down to the Naples area as I really wanted to go there and thought it best to get it done and dusted sooner rather than later. One of the places I visited was Pompeii which was very interesting to look at although that novelty wore off as I wandered aimlessly among the ruins in the strong afternoon heat trying not to get sunburned as I still hadn’t bought any suncream. Hence, why I am wearing a long sleeved t-shirt and long pants in most of the photos.

Sadly there wasn’t so much in the way of information boards which are usually sufficient for me. Without a map or info on the history of the eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius it was quite hard to get a real feel for the place but a guide would have driven me crazy, making me more tired and with very little information being retained in all likelihood.
