migraine misery, Genoa (not necessarily linked ;0)

I'm back on the beta blockers, not that this is helping any right now, I have had a very miserable few days. I am also having rather unpleasant dreams again and am very worried about the sleepwalking and what I might do whilst in the grip of a nightmare. Fun times. I managed to get an appointment at the migraine clinic tomorrow- it's a long journey by public transport and I am not looking forward to making it.

On the positive side, at least I am miserable in Switzerland ;0)

OUr recent trip to Genoa was.....interesting. The old part of the city looks filthy, even though there is no rubbish lying around. The (almost constant) smell of urine doesn't help. The food is bloody awful. Yep, we were eating where the locals ate and all I can say is that they must have pretty low standards! The people were very friendly though and were very tolerant of my lack of Italian - and we found what was Probably The Best Gelato In The World.

Number Guy has a weakness for aquaria (is that the correct plural???) so a visit to the Genoese one was a must.
It ticked lots of the right boxes, but we do think that their humming bird display was a bit, erm, unworthy of the extra admission fee.

Right, I'm off to remind myself that there are worse things in the world than chronic and acute migraine - wish me luck!

  1. Sorry to hear that you've been suffering so. And ... it's amazing, that Italian food in Italy can be so horrible, isn't it? I think ... that it's probably like that everywhere. Sad.

    I haven't seen humming birds in nearly a year! Wonderful little things!
