And…we’re back!

This marks the end of our little not-vacation* in Milan. As usual pictures will be posted as soon as I finish sorting through them.

*) I still hold that it’s not a proper vacation when you’re less than 1000km (as the bird flies) from home. It’s more like a little (extended/multi) day trip. Another sign for a not-vavation is when your flight time is only an hour and about half of it is taken up by take off/landing and taxiing.
Signs that you’re (probably) on a proper vacation include:
– you need to bring your passport to be let into the country (or even need to apply for a visa in advance)
– your destination is in a different timezone
– using a travel SIM card in your phone is not more expensive than just roaming with your home SIM

Almost there…

Sitting at STR sipping a cappucino. Made it thru security… it took a bit longer tho – at least for Oliver. But on the positive side, we now know that he’s explosives-free.

Our flight departs in about 70mins and arrives at MXP one hour later. The distance – as the bird flies – is only three hundred something kilometers. Probably my shortest flight ever.
