I love flying over the Alps shortly before landing in Italy. I landed in Bologna at 9:45 Saturday Italy time, and checked in to Hotel Porto San Mamolo for one night. Tomorrow I can move into my apartment. I was dead tired, but went straight to my favorite cafe for a latte to perk.
Then I walked around for 2 hours, and finally stopped for lunch.
I explored my apartment neighborhood a little, and came back to the hotel for a shower and a nap. It is sunny and warm and beautiful. I am SO happy to be in Italy!
