We have arrived safe and sound

As it is after midnight and we are exhausted this is just quick update.  I will do a post on the Istanbul airport and lounge soon.  Today we traveled to our first destination on this trip.  We arrived in Naples, Italy to a beyond crazy passport control ( waited in line 2 hours ) and then just as we got to our airbnb the sky opened up.  The great news is that both of our suitcases were waiting for us.  It rained for hours and our free walking tour was cancelled due to weather so we did it on our own anyway thanks to Rick Steves.

I am freezing cold and having trouble warming up. 12C is not normal Napoli temps for mid May, this is March weather.  To think that my main concern was having A/C in the bedroom here.  The weather should get better tomorrow.

We have had to change our tour plans totally due to the weather but we are enjoying being here.  I also spent about 90 minutes on the phone at no charge with Virgin Mobile sorting out my data.  We got into a bit of a jam earlier today and needed to check something online but no data.  Finally sorted it out and in the end I was the one who made a suggestion as to the fix.  All is well except I lost time during my evening, so just a quickie tonight.  We have a very exciting day planned for tomorrow but that means getting up early yet again!

Lots of walking is happening, managed to walk 20K steps without too much effort today.  Good thing considering how delicious the pizza is.

Ciao for now.

    Wow, the birthplace of pizza! Enjoy!

  3. Glad you made it to Naples. We only flew out from there so didn’t have hassles with passport control and zero passport control at Rome as we had come in thru Amsterdam to the EU. Yikes – 12 degrees is bloody cold for there, I think the lowest we saw even in rain was 20. The margherita pizza with buffalo mozzarella is to die for (I tried several in both Rome and Salerno)
