Fan Dabbydosey San Damiano!😀😜😝

Yesterday, our second day in Assisi, we started our morning like any other morning: with breakfast. 😋

After the pretty legendary breakfast😝, we travelled by foot, just like Saint Francis would’ve done back in the day (i.e. 800 years ago), to the San Damiano church which was Fan Dabbydosey, get it😂? After an excellent expert’s (Brother McMullen a Fransican Monk) recount of the life of Saint Francis and Saint Clare, we received a tour around the monastery.

When we returned to the town square we may have opened our wallet a tiny bit and spent some, no all of our money, no offence but you’ve missed out if you’ve never eaten Italian.

So, after starting a minor (major) 😜shortage of gelato, we made our way back to the centre of the square and met up with our lovely guides Marcella and Giorgio to have a tour of the picturesque 📷🎥 Assisi!

Once we had finished our exploration, we ventured into a cafe for a cheeky refreshment🙀.
Ciao for now from the Assisi survivors 2015!😀😎😜😝😛😆😎☺️😄😃😀😅😺😋😈💋👍🏼👌🏼

The castle ruins.

On Monday we went to Rocca Magiorre, an old fort. The view was incredible when we got to the top. We took lots of photos of each other that we have posted on the blog.
The walk downhill was far easier than uphill! We were all absolutely exhausted by the time we got back to the hotel. We collapsed into our beds after dinner and fell straight to sleep (unlike some of those boys!).

L’Arrivo

Today unlike any Monday morning, I woke up at the unearthly time of 3:15 am!! Once I was at school, we had to wait a few minutes until the coach arrived. After we had said goodbye to our parents, we boarded the coach and started our journey to Assisi…

After a 2 hour journey on the coach (which seemed to a lifetime to me) we finally arrived at Stansted Airport. When we had finished checking our bags in, we started to queue to go through security, while other people surreptitiously went to the loo and snacked on their breakfast.

Since the gate was about to close, we had to rush to the gate.
When had boarded we started breakfast and our games. As usual it was a bumpy landing: we had finally arrived at the picturesque Italy!😀😎😅😉 EN
