Trip Report On the way to the Equinox

Jump to last reply

So we got a bit of a surprise at O'Hare to start off with. UAL changed our connecting to FCO from EWR to Dulles. And we got no notice. Yep I checked the flight status the day B4 and there were no changes. Well that meant we lost our seats and had to be in separate rows and in middle seats. So I was between grumpy and grumpier. The latter was a pain. When I accidentally let the strap of my shoulder bag fall on his clavicle he acted like he got hit with a karate chop. Oh well. It was 8'hrs. With this guy. BTW UAL pales in comparison to Turkish who we took to IST last yr. Turkish gives you more room and free booze. UAL even on intl. flights charges for booze. So what did I do? Upon arrival to our hotel in Civitavecchia I upgraded our return to econ. plus.

We are relaxing in the San Giorgio hotel now after a wonderful meal at their restaurant. We had fish, osso buco and risotto and it was very good. The service is great, the hotel people and friendly and after two limoncellos, one complimentary we had a nice stroll outside in the cool night air and are wondering why we are so wide awake now, about 2200 local time. Darn jet lag! :D.

Anyway who cares. We're on vacation.

Tomorrow is embarkation. Stay tuned.
