Mum
I have very few memories of my first trip to Rome, back in 1981 (when I was 20) .... I fell down, head over heals, a section of the the Spanish Steps.  I was totally un-injured, despite coming down 15 steps, but logic has since pointed out, that I was probably in a slight state of shock.

There is a family picture of me in the Colloseum, but I don't remember seeing it.  I know we didn't go into the Forum as Mum was not a sight-see-er  (confused about that spelling!!) ... and said that she didn't see why we had to pay to see a load of Roman rubble!  Over the following years, whenever we went anywhere in Europe, including Greece, she would always call any temples etc "Roman Rubble" ... well, sorry Mum, but you know me ... I went ....
