Rome has a load of old Roman stuff? Fake news if you ask me, for sure.

Hope you have fun! :)

If as I hope I end up in Austria, Venice may be do-able by train sometime :)

I do hear Venice is cool.
I'm off to Orkney and then the far north of the mainland for the next ten days or so. No internets for me, try to keep the marcuses at bay in my absence.

Boars or pigs, apparently: that's what the Celtic 'ork' or 'arc' element means. The Vikings heard the name and decided it referred to seals instead (their word 'orkn') and added 'eyjar' (islands) for good measure. Centuries of English usage have worn off the final syllable.
