The LONG Way Home


I'm back at home in Palm Desert. THAT only took 39 hours!

We left our Rome hotel at 7:30 Monday morning, and I arrived in Palm Desert Tuesday afternoon!

My flight was supposed to board at 10:30 am. We boarded at 12:20. We made up an hour in the air, and I thought I would still make my flight from Charlotte to San Diego UNTIL we sat on the runway for 40 minutes in Charlotte. I missed them closing the doors by 10 minutes!


I overnighted at a nice Marriott, had dinner, a shower and slept until I was bright-eyed at 1:30 in the morning. Luckily there was a coffee pot in my room. I sat outside much of the night on a wooden rocker, reading my book. I returned at 5:15 for sunrise at the Charlotte airport, and all went well to San Diego where Brad was there to greet me. I've been away a LONG time!

I'll catch up on blogging soon. I had a ball in Rome!

I'm so glad that you've returned safe and sound. 39 hours is gruesome!


Welcome home Palma and thank you taking us "arm chair" travelers along for your amazing adventure.

Oh gawd! What an ordeal! Looks like you had a nice sunrise, though. ;)

Welcome home-I've enjoyed every minute of your travels and look froward to hearing more!

Barb Cabot:

I was wondering about you. Glad to hear you made it home. That was incredibly long 39 hrs. but then you are an incredible lady. Welcome Back. I know Brad is loving having you home again. Thank you for blogging and sharing your wonderful trip with us. I loved being in Italy with you through the blog.

chiaro di luna:

thanks for sharing Italy with us. Looking forward to your recommendations re: restaurants and shops.

Glad you made it home safe and sound.

Bet Brad & Ego are so happy to have you home.

I have been watching to see you reached home safely. Un bacio grande a Brad!

I was worried also. Sorry you had to deal with airline delays and connection problems. Glad you were given a nice room at the Mariott. It must be nice to be back home even though I am sure you miss Italy already.
