My next flight after my trip to LGW and Brighton was a flight to Rome. It’d been almost exactly a year since the last time I flew to Rome, so I was very much looking forward to going back to the Italian capital!

After arriving and checking in to our hotel, we caught the hotel’s shuttle bus into the city.

The bus drops you off just a couple of minutes walk from the Altare della Patria, which is also known as the Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II. It’s a monument built in honour of Victor Emmanuel, the first king of a united Italy, and is a very impressive building!

Part 2 of Lizzie and Jarett’s stay here in Dubai is here!

After some tasty cocktails at a great little rooftop bar just across the street from mine (Level 43 Sky Lounge, at the Sheraton Four Points) we were ready for an early night.

Because we had an early start the next morning…. off to Abu Dhabi!

We decided to get the bus as although I have a Dubai driving license I still haven’t driven here and it’s only 25 dhs each way per person on the bus (around 5 Euros).

Our first stop was a visit to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
