So it’s the 2nd day of 2012 already! and my Dad’s Birthday! Happy Birthday DAD! not that he reads this! 🙂

Christchurch has been kept awake all night with earthquakes, the biggest being 5.5 at 5.45am, they are predicting a 7.0 to hit soon, which would be awful considering 181 people died when a 6.3 hit!  So fingers crossed they have got this wrong and nothing happens!

In the mean time here is the lovely view from our Hotel in Sorrento, looking out over Sorrento and Mount Vesuvius, which we climbed on our last day:

Sorrento and Mount Vesuvius




  1. My fingers are crossed for Christchurch too!! Did you know that one of the predictions for 2012 is that Mount Vesuvius will erupt?! If that is true, the view shown in your photo could change drastically! That would be a shame because it is stunning.

  2. Oh Wow, I didn’t know that, it was def smoking when we were up there! Scary! that would be a horrible 😦
    What’s up with Mother Nature the last year or so? she has gone mad!

    • I agree, and I don’t think 2012 is going to be any better. It seems like every time I turn on the tv or the radio there are reports of more disasters somewhere in the world. By the way, I am totally jealous of your climb to the top of Vesuvius!! That must have been amazing!

  3. No I don’t think so either, especially if yesterday in London was anything to go by, it was crazy weather!
    The top of Vesuvius was freezing! and then it started to rain! but it was stiill worth doing.
