Flight to Italy

well, I have finally found the time to update this blog about our flight over to Italy. We had a little bit of trouble at the airport with regards to our checked baggage. Evidently they changed the weight limit, and a couple of our boxes were overweight. So we had to re-pack 3 of them there in the airport. Luckily we had arrived in plenty of time. We departed Charlotte at about 2:00 pm, and arrived in Philadelphia about 4:00. We had a 2 hour layover and then took off from Philadelphia for Rome. The flight to Rome was uneventful. Even the airline food wasn't that bad! We didn't have any window seats, but the flight was only 8 hours long so it wasn't bad at all. We arrived in Rome on Wednesday morning (local time). It was slightly chilly outside, but we found the fellow that was taking our baggage to our house and got on board his van. We got to the house, dad singed the papers for the house and we were officially tenants. The house is really nice. (See earlier posts.) I've added a picture of us on the plane to Philadelphia below.

Why does it look like there's no one else on the plane? Did you have a private flight? ;)

Hahahah no, we got to pre-board because we had small children (Augustin) and lots of carry on luggage.
