Civitavecchia, Rome, Italy
I caught sight of a lady on her own watching the The Kiss of the nurse and the unknown soldier; Hm, wonder what she was thinking. I hope that she is with someone and her wait will soon be over. The first time I got curious about The Kiss is when I watched a movie called Letters to Juliet; such a romantic movie that was. I've always wanted to see Times Square since... and Italy, of course! So, when I saw this statue in Rome, I was very surprised, a little confused... and excited to photobomb the couple. They were strangers, I heard, yet the nurse allowed the kiss without reservations. Thus dubbed, the Unconditional Surrender.
Hubby and I tried to mimic the kiss, all our photographs came out funny, real comedic. Nothing more can be expected from a bunch of goofballs, I guess, ha ha! I was furious that hubby and I can't get a romantic shot like they have. Hubby said: "C'mon darling, they weren't married yet." Was his teasing reply followed by a wink and a gentle squeeze of the hand. Now, I realize, it's more fun to look at goofy pictures than those reserved, shy-to-smile-and-pose photos... can't help but laugh when I look at them.
Civitavvechia Rome Port
Civitavecchia, Rome is our first Port for our Mediterranean cruise. This is where we get on board and alight after. On our way to the ship, this place (where the Unconditional Surrender is stationed) was busy with tourists and photographers offering to take photos for them, at a price of course. Coming from the ship, at the end of the cruise, this place was empty. I saw opportunities to take photos in both occasions.
The above photo shows our ship on dock. This is how most Ports of Call looks like, not too touristy yet. A shuttle bus or a ship's tender would take us to the next city where we could begin our sight-seeing; or from there, take the train to other major tourist sites. In Civitavecchia, a double-decker red tourist bus is already waiting to take interested tourist for a tour of Rome, therefore saving some money taking the train.
