Where I stayed
What I did
First leg of the flight was through Philadelphia: home of not only the Liberty Bell but its equally impressive Lego replica. Also, a clock made solely from beer bottles.
Second leg of the flight: wow. The seats lay all the way back. We have personal TVs for each seat. Before takeoff we were given a toiletry bag with eye masks, a toothbrush, socks and hand lotion. Dinner was a 3 course meal, all very good by airplane food standards. I'm officially impressed. Thank you Aunt Cathy and Aunt Tenna for these fantastic tickets!
Only downside of the flight is the timing. We left Philadelphia at about 7pm (1AM Rome time). After a night of bad sleep (while the amenities help, you’re still sleeping on an airplane), we landed at about 10:30 AM Rome time, so just in time to start our day. So first things first: to coffee!
