|Where to go for the holidays?|
|Tom and I thought about lots of possible destinations—Madrid, Prague, Portugal, Iceland. But when Tom said, "Let's go to Naples," I knew exactly where I wanted to go! Although we only had a week (far too short to really appreciate the destination), I regarded this trip as preparation for a longer future visit. Plus, when I think about the places in the world I would most like to see, top of the list has long been Pompeii. At last, I might finally get to see one of my key world sites.|
We left Chicago on Saturday, Dec. 27, on American Airlines. We had a 3-hour layover in Paris at DeGaulle airport, where we switched to Alitalia for the flight on to Naples Capodichino Airport.
|The flight on Alitalia went very smoothly— except that security in Paris still had our luggage (it was finally delivered on Tuesday).|
|As promised, we were met at the airport by the very affable Umberto Benvenuto, of Benvenuto Limos. He waited patiently while we worked out our luggage snafu, then gave us a calming, scenic ride to our home base, Sorrento.|
