Rob in Livorno

Multicolor umbrella on a square-tiled floor, Livorno
Yesterday I had the pleasure to meet Rob of Barcelona Daily Photo, who made a stop-over in Livorno, on his way back home. The weather was not brilliant, but we were spared the rain and I was able to accompany our friend for a quick walk around Livorno. Rob speaks an excellent Italian (and nine more languages!) so my task as guide was even easier. We also met Trillian at the end of our tour.
Ikarus Palace route from Livorno to Barcelona
Rob is now on his way to Barcelona on board the “Ikarus Palace”, which is now (9:27 AM) just off Toulon.

I like this simple composition, VP. Good that you had the chance to see another CDP blogger.

Glad you had the opportunity to meet our fellow blogger, Rob.
Yes, I know Rob speaks several languages....
I am just waiting for him to start learning Norwegian.

Anyway, great choice of image on a day that ended with lots of rain.

Hope it is better now.

This guy is gifted with languages, isn't he? Years ago we had the pleasure to meet with him and Mandy in Barcelona, we like these folks a lot!
God bless you!

It was kind of cool to speak 3 languages with Rob! Glad you had a great time, despite the storm!

Lucky Rob, being in Livorno, meeting blog-friends, AND taking a ship home!

Thanks for the map. Wish I had had it in 1968 when my good ship Enotria sailed from Genoa to Marseilles. I had booked for a journey to Haifa and wondered why we started off in the wrong direction.

Any chance we will see pictures of the bloggers meeting?

I've met 2 fellow bloggers. It was fun, even for this very secretive guy.

Nice umbrella which adds a bit of color to a gray day.

It's always nice to meet a fellow blogger! It's a pity that weather didn't help too much.
