OK, I' m getting the last of my holiday posts out of the way! On my first visit to Rome, I didn't get the chance to explore the Roman Forum, but this time I managed to spend quite a few hours amongst the ruins. There was just too much to see, and once again it was absolutely sweltering! Here are some of my photos.

I'm so sorry I have neglected this blog lately - and today's post is nothing to do with Piers, I'm afraid. But it is the holiday season, and I've visited Italy, and in particular, I visited Pompeii, somewhere I've always wanted to visit. So, I'm afraid, it's my holiday photos - hope you enjoy them!
