Is it good luck if a bird poos on you? Didn't think so at the time so didn't tell you about it in yesterday's post.
Anyway had a bit of good luck today so it must be.
When we arrived at the airport to catch our plane to Rome we were told when we first checked in that we couldn't sit together, but were also told to ask if it was possible for us to change seats when we were boarding the plane.
We were ushered through the priority gate because he had moved his queue through. He was ever so nice and there was no one behind us so l did ask if it was possible for us to sit together. Well we had the best seats, we were next to the door, only 2 seats together and oodles of leg room. It was the best flight ever.
When we arrived in Rome we got our bus tics and were told there would be a 40 minute wait. That's okay if they only sell as many tics as there are seats on the bus. No we got our tics from inside the building and there was a bloke selling tics at the terminal and he sold and he sold and he kept selling.
When that bus arrived it was chaos, picture the Myer stocktake sale. You had to put your luggage under the bus and claim a seat. Ray left me in the queue and he put the cases under the bus. People were pushing, the bloke was trying to keep order and l was a bit tired and a bit cheesed off about the situation. People don't queue so l held my ground, turned my back on a big group and pushed my way onto the bus. Ray said ldid brilliantly. Those left and there at least 30 of them had to wait another 45 minutes and he was still selling more tickets.
Will be catching the train when we have to head back to the airport, pray that a low flying bird has another go at me and l'll be equally lucky on the way back with seats.
Finally got to the hotel, no free Internet and no fridge. So have paid for Internet and if we can find some ice tomorrow will be using the bidet to keep a bottle of champagne cold.
PS... Had dinner in a small restaurant , apparently if there is no tax included you are meant to give a 10% tip (why don't they just charge us!) so we got the bill, 50 Shades wrote the tip at the bottom of the bill, instead of writing 4 euro, he wrote 40, need to keep our eye on him me thinks.
