Left at an unmentionable hour and the flight took off at 6.15 a.m. on time. Arrived 15 minutes early with a following wind. Flew over the Alps - the most dramatic views as the cloud had cleared which had been with us since leaving Stansted!
Already seen Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and Coloseum - just a bit. Loads more to explore but it's been a glorious day with brilliant sunshine and blue skies
Seen a Hooded Crow (lifer!), Siskin, a Ring-necked Parakeet and, we think, a Serin - loads of Starlings and Sparrows..heard a Great Tit.
Table booked at a local Restaurant for our meal later.......
I think I'll sleep tonight! :D
