A trip to Rome - Homeward Bound

On the sixth day of our trip we were lazy after all that sightseeing. In the morning we went to a park and enjoyed the weather while reading and drawing. We also saw this cool mushroom fountain.

In the afternoon there was a big thunderstorm with lots of rain so we spend the afternoon in our hotel. In the evening we went out for dinner, but I didn't take any pictures.

The next day we had to travel home again.

We started with an early breakfast.
There were all kinds of fruit and cereal and bread.

After breakfast we had a last walk around the neighborhood and bought some souvenirs. We also spotted this fountain.

A mini van came to pick us up to go to the airport where my owner once again got frisked, although not as thoroughly this time. Then we had to wait until it was time to board.

We were driven to the plane in a bus again. I managed to get a windowseat again.

While we waited for our plane to take off I saw other planes drive by on the way to the take off lane.

And then we were airborne again!
Look at all those clouds.

The clouds did make it difficult to see the ground, and I so wanted to see the Alps when we passed them.

The clouds were beautiful though.

And I managed to spot the Alps through the clouds:

Can you see the Alps??

There were tiny TV's in the chairs that showed clips of movies during the flight.

What a weird feeling to be watching TV while flying high above the world.

After about two hours we landed at Schiphol airport.
We were in the Netherlands again.

After a quick bite we caught a train to Groningen.
Our week long trip had come to an end.

My owner did get me this small statue as a souvenir though, so I can look at it and remember our fun trip to Rome.

I had an amazing week.
