|Castel Gondolfo...I just hope I can ride AND look at the views!|
So to answer the question I've been asked a few times lately ..."are you excited".. hmm perhaps more worried than excited!
Apparently the locale is called the Castelli Romani area...so I can envisage I'm going to be spending a bit of time exploring it and if you check a couple of posts back you'll find a proposed bike ride going right through that area...a ride proposal made in total ignorance of what the area had to offer.
As a bit of research prior to my trip I've been delving into ancient Roman history and have discovered THE most fantastic podcast called "The History of Rome" by Mike Duncan..free, gratis and for nothing at iTunes. Highly recommended.
2 more sleeps
2 more rides
and a bit of packing
woo! hoo!...out of wet cold and thoroughly miserable weather into hot, sticky, uncomfortably humid weather, mozzies and earthquakes!
