The Air Transat plane was new. If you travel we recommend you upgrade as first class service was awesome. Wide, leather seats. tons of leg room, free booze (all you want), decent food with cutlery and glass glasses and china dishes. Up to date movies. The touch screens are a challenge - too soft a touch gets you nowhere and too hard takes you everywhere.
We arrived in Rome with ease. Got ourselves cell phones (of course the cheapest were sold out) so we had to get the E39.00 and 15 min each phone time at 8 cents a minute total cost E25.00 each
Yes, the suitcases were the worst of the legs of the trips on the train but we managed with some help and Dianne's muscles. Absolutely no problems getting from every point to every point we needed to in order to get the train, and lightrail, and taxi. The taxi driver was great and fit us all 4 sisters and their 200 pounds of luggage and various items in the taxi "No problemo".
Our pensione is basic, clean, no bugs, quiet, central to everything to walk to, and very spacious. We have not had a problem yet to communicate as Dianne has her Italian down pretty well actually, but we can get our message across if we need to. For all those teachers out there do not get excited about grammar, spelling and punctuation because we are working on a Italian computer and in a hurry.
We got in on time and the landlady was waiting for us - awesome and got
the keys, quickly cleaned up and left to get something to eat
So, ciao for now. Gotto go wake up the sleeping beauties and wave fresh pizza in their face.
Oh, and there are 4 bottles of wine waiting in the fridge.
Love and hugs and miss our hubbies,
Laurie and Dianne
