This morning we got up early and boarded our tour bus for the ancient ruins of Pompeii. 1700 years ago (on my birthday, August 24th to be exact!) Mount Vesuvius erupted sending ash and pumice stones onto the city of Pompeii. For three days homes were hit and people eventually suffocated to death. Today, they have excavated a lot of the town and it was amazing to be walking through these ruins.
A couple of nights ago I put $10 into a slot machine in the casino and with one pull and .30c I won $45! Once I had won I played two more rounds before I cashed out and was super excited to receive the $43.75 in cash!
Today is also the last night of the first cruise and there are a bunch of sad passengers. I’m pretty ecstatic to be getting ready to start all over and begin a 10 day Eastern Mediterranean cruise! Bring on 10 more days of five-star fun!
