... the counter, waited 15 minutes (we were second in line), only to be told the flight was overbooked and they could not change our seats. Luckily, the young man that was about to sit beside me agreed to take Rob's seat in row 25 so Rob could move back to sit with me.

What a concept.
The drive back was interesting as Rob has never driven these highways at night time. As ...

This is a very pretty town and the houses are almost orange in colour as opposed to the grayish, beige, yellow tones we've seen. Also, the streets are lined with gelato places making it even more of a must see! This is where Rob burned rubber in Pizzo as we had to back track and do multiple u-turns to get into the gelato place parking lot. He may be a "snowflake" ...
