Hey guys, just got back from Rome, with plenty of photos for all you guys to see. The flight itself wasn't too bad. I didn't find out until after I swapped into it that it's a notorious horror flight, but the trip we did wasnt too bad. On the Rome-Dubai leg we were delayed for 3 hours inside the aircraft because the air conditioning wasn't working, and because of that the passengers were quite restless the rest of the way, but apart from that it was okay.

It was also the first time I had a deadheading flight. This is where we fly (in either Business or first class) for the sake of positioning - there was already a crew operating for the Rome-Nice leg and we were taking over for Nice-Rome-Dubai. As it turned out, there was no one flying first class, so we got upgraded, and for 45 minutes we got treated like royalty.

So... here are the photos from Rome. They look pretty good already, but you can't possibly fathom how beautiful the place is unless you visit Rome yourself. The amount of photos here also warrants it being the largest post in my blog to date.

Picture of me outside one of the last remaining building where the Ancient Romans had villas at the Piazza de Campidoglio

Side view of the Vittoriano building, located at the Piazza Venezia

Ruins of the Foro Romano, the forum of the Ancient Roman Empire.

Christine, me and Shari (the only economy chicks on the flight) in front of the Senatorio, also at the Piazza de Campidoglio

The Vittoriano, in all it's Italian glory

Shari and I standing on the main viewing platform of the Vittoriano with a nice view of the Italian flag

Replica of the Equestrian Statue of Marcus Aurelius, the person believed to have founded Modern Italy

Me outside the Colosseum, with a guy in gladiator costume to the side

The very famous Trevi Fountain

Shari and I outside the Trevi fountain

Geppetto's workshop

A picture of me with Pinocchio

A Caravaggio painting from inside Santi Apostoli

The main altar thingo of Stani Apostoli

The stunning roof of Santi Apostoli

Inside and outside of the Pantheon

Spanish Steps, at the Piazza de Spagna

Christine filling up water out of the boat monument at the Spanish steps. The water out of here and the Trevi fountain is very pure and refreshing, and certainly better than the tap water in Dubai.

Castel St Angelo. Built as a fortress, sometimes a prison, and a museum, it is best known as the summer residence of the Pope.

The Swiss guards, who have the responsibility of looking after the Vatican. They also only speak German, believe it or not.

The Piazza St Pietro in the Vatican City, also more well known as St Peter's Basillica square, where the Pope is seen doing his handshakes and whatnot on the balcony.

The Via del Corse at twilight. I think we were eating gelato at the time.

Next flight is to Athens, which I know is going to be excellent. It's also only a 5 hour flight direct, so even if we get passengers that are stroppy, it will be mercifully short.
