Go back to Roma

I ate light breakfast and I still had a time to train,
Andrea played piano and sing a song for me~*

Very beautiful voice and I'm impressed!
It's like a professional :D

Well then it was time to train, I said thank and good bye to Andrea, then I head to train station by metro.

I bought a ticket by vending machine.

Napoli~Roma 10.50Euro

I ride on a train, dep 12.34.

Buuuuuut,,,,, shoooooot!!!!
I forgot to validate a ticket by printing date machine..!!!!(>_<)

In Italy, we have to validate the ticket before riding!!!
I totally forgot it!!!

When ticket man came to my coach, just I wrote in a date by myself by pen.

Please, please don't take fine~~~!!

The ticket man saw my ticket, he said "You have to print before riding, this is not working"

Oh,,,I wrote a date by myself... it is not work...?

But just I pretend I don't know about anything, I'm just a innocent Japanese tourist,,, so he forgive me. Yeah ;D

If a passenger forgot to validate, they take fine from 5Euro to 60Euro...I don't like this system...I bought a ticket correctly before riding...

In 3 hours, I arrived at Termini station of Roma.

Whoa~~~, finally I came back to Roma...!!
Almost my Europe trip is ended....

Andrea who hosted me 4months ago in Roma came to station to pick me up by bike.

"Long time no see~~~!!"

Then we head to home.

On the way home, I found a car parked just beside of a car, in normal street.
Oh, Roma...

We arrived at home and put my baggege, then

Andrea served me Mozzarella and Tomato~~~***

I love mozzarella cheese very much!!!

I asked teaching Salsa as Andrea is a salsa teacher as well.

He taught me 4 month ago but I forgot everything...
It'd be cool if I can dance salsa..!

I wrote blog tonight finally, then I went to bed at 3am.

Castel Sant'Elmo

I was soooo tired these days, so I didn't write blog these days, I write blog this morning.

Well, I go to sight seeing from afternoon.

I head to Castle Sant'Elmo Andrea suggested as panoramic view of Napoli.

But it's starting rain...

I wear rain-wear, then walk walk.

Ummmm, what about panoramic view under rain...?
No one on a stret.
Well, anyway I go.

I arrived at "Castel Sant'Elmo".

Still rain, what should I do..?

I headed to ticket office, I found a Japanese man walking from castle.

Oh, let's ask him about a view under rain.

"Are you Japanese? how was inside..?"

"Wow, why you know I'm Japanese! Many people think me Chinese"

Yeah, actually, Japanese people is very strange people, you know.
Good looking wearing, walking slowly under rain without umbrella, it's nothing but a starange Japanese(lol).

Nakamura(39) showed me some pictures at under roof, in few minutes a rain is stopped, so I go inside the castle with Nakamura.
Entrance fee is 5Euro.

Wooooow! Great panoramic view~~~!!!

I asked Nakamura taking a picture of me*

Me :D

Then we tryed to go to pizza restaurant to eat pizza though, it was closed as Sunday..!!

Instead of Pizza,
we ate a cake for dessert like a breast, 2.50Euro.

Napoli is dirty city though, food is yummy and a lot of people has a good sence of fashion.
It's a mystery.

Then we said good-bye and I went back to home.

Andrea was in home already, I did Thai massage for him before dinner.
Then Andrea ordered a pizza~~~~***

He said this is not best pizza in Napoli though, this is best pizza I have eaten in Napoli!!

Grazie Andrea :D

23 Oct 2010


I plan to go to Pompei today though, Andrea show me around a little bit, so we went out together.

Busy street of pedestrian paradise.

Villa Floridiana

This is a building of duke, but now is a museum.

Nice view from this park*

Well, I and Andrea take other way from here, so I rode on a metro to Piazza Garibaldy for station.

I thought I can go to Pompei by Ialian railway, so I was in line of ticket counter though, I have to take other private line "Circumvesuviana".

It was a little bit difficult to find the line, so I asked it at information.

Then I bought a 1 day ticket for Pompei though, it's a good ticket as I can ride every transport in Napoli as well!


Normally the price is 4.70Euro though, Saturday and Sunday is 3.80Euro, yeah!
And also I got a time table paper.

In 30min riding,

I arrived at "Pompei Scavi" station~.

I paid 11Euro for admission fee of Pompei ruins and go inside.

I can't believe this city was died by volcano...

I went back to Napoli, then Andrea take me for dinner :D

Yummy french fry, beer and Panino***

Grazie, Andrea!!

Then we went back to home, I went to bed soon as sooo tired.

I woke up at 7:30am, and took shower.

This is the view from Ves's terras.

I ate very light breakfast, then I went out home at 8:40 with him who going to work.

Well, I go to sea port taking safe street.

Walk, walk.

This is still clean street.

I say many times though, Napoli is really dirty.
India of Europe, it is the Italy.
Colkata of Italy, it is the Napoli.

Everyone across a road even a car is coming.
No rule city, it is the Napoli.

Church on the way.

Well, I arrived at port and I dashed ticket counter as next boat leave soon.

Napoli~ Capri 16Euro one-way

What a expensive.
But I wanna see the Blue carve(Grotta Azzurra), so I go to Capri!

I rode on a ferry~.
Rough wave makes me sick...

I arrioved at Capri in 1 hr~*

Well then, let's buy the ticket of Grotta Azzurra, Blue cave,,,,

"Because the sea is rough, No service to the blue grotto"

...I saw the sign.

W, WHAT!?!?!?

Hey~~~!!!! Wait a minute~!!!!
I came here for Blue cave, please don't say such a thing~~!!!(>_<)

When I asked about it at a ticket counter, yesterday also closed the Blue cave.

No way~, no way~....
I never expect that...

But anyway I will find a way, no time to dissapointed.
Let's hung around the Capri island!

I rode on a funicorale to Capri town, 1.40Euro

Wow~, nice view~ :D

I got a free map of Capri island, let's hung around~!

I walk, walk on a small street.

Then a front view was suddenly opened.

Belvedere Cannone

Wooooooow!!!! What a beautiful~~~!!!!

I feel so good and took some rest here :D
No one here, very quiet.

Well, where do I go next?

I looked at map and go back to town center once.


I walk on a small street rumdomly.

Walk, walk.

Walk, walk.

Come to think of it, it seems no transport in this narrow street but walking...

Oh, there is a special transport!
This is the transport for local people~.

Walk, walk.

In 40min walking...

I arrived at the eastern part of Capri,
Villa Jovis~!
Entrance fee 2Euro

Like these.

Well next, I walk on a mountain road to go back~.

Walk, walk.

Walk, walk.

I am always walking by flip flap.
If you working on a flip flap company, it'd be great advertisement if you be a sponser for me!(lol)

Well, I walked down a mountain, I feel hungry though, I guess everything are expensive as here resort place,,, so I eat biscuit,,,

Hey! I fond some people taking pizza box!!

Ves told me yesterday though, if we eat pizza on a table is expensive but take away is cheap!

Yeah, let's try!!

I walked few minutes, I found a restaurant on a pizza box.

"Ciao~! How much a margerita for take away?"


What a cheap!!!

"I take it~*"

Just I went to toilet while I ordered, in 5 min the pizza was done.

This is it.
Big box.
I open a box with excited...

Just now burned 30cm pizza!!!!
I'm happy this is just 3.50Euro~~~***

When I was eating the pizza on a bench, many people saw me and said "Bonapetito!" with smile.
I reply "Grazie" with smile.

I'm very happy~***

Incidentally, it's 30cm pizza but a base is very thin, so I can eat everything if my stomach is very small :D

Well next, I walk to other sight.

Acro Naturale

Whoa~~, beautiful*

Well next, I thought to see a cave though, I couldn't find a street, so I go back to town center and let's go to next town.

I take bus to Anacapri, next town, 1.40Euro

This is Anacapri.

Well next, I take chair lift to top of a mountain~!!
Round ticket 9Euro.

Great feeling and super view~~~!!!!
I like this chair lift very much~~~!!!!

There is also walk way to "Monte Solaro" though, the way is behind of lift, so taking lift is much better view!!
Feeling like flying!!! :D:D:D

View from top.
What a good feeling~*

Then I go back by chair lift again though,
Gabbage box on a lift(lol).

I couldn't go Blue cave today though, instead of that I walked around the Capri island about 15~20km today, so I enjoyed here very much :D

If I go to Capri island for Blue cave next time, I call this number first.
Tourist information.
081 837 837 0686
081 837 837 0634

I took a bus from Anacapri to Marina grande, 1.40Euro.

I go back to Napoli at 18:10pm by ferry, 16Euro.

Then I go back to Ves's house to pick my baggage up.
Actually I planed staying Ves's place for 2 nights though, the light on a bath room is broken, and also next host said to me I can go from tonithg, so I decided moving.

It was already dark, so I thought I move soon though, Ves prepared a pasta for dinner,
I ate tomato pasta.

I said thank and went out, then I walk to next host's house.

Come to think of it,,,, I'm walking on a street at 9pm in Napoli,,, even it's a big and lighted street....

Well, actually, Italian people likes go out at night, and I'm taking busy street so I don't feel danger.
When I was in Barcelona, it was same.
Talking about safety, it's safer than I expected before I come to Europe.

Then I arrived at Andrea(41)'s house at 9:40pm~.

When I entered his house,,,

Wide room, piano, good faniture, picture on a wall,,,

"This is your room"
"Oh, thank you"

seems like a palace...

I finally,,,, came,,,,

Mafia's house~!!!

No, it's just a joke :P
But I'm impressed I can stay like a palace room***
I'm a princess~***

Andrea try to take me out for dinner though, I already ate pasta at Ves's house,,, I'm full...

"So what do you want to eat?" he asked, so I want to take a dessert,


Then he took me to show a great night view of Napoli :D
Soooo impressed***

We went back to home and I did Thai massage for him.

Ah~, today was long day and enjoyed very much as well~ XD

Woow, today I put 47 pictures!
I'm impressed by myself~ :D
