Boungiorno from Italy!
I arrived in Italy yesterday afternoon after one lovely flight (yes I said that!), it wasn’t as bad as I expected and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. So after nabbing a window seat I could see the entire way and was treated to a lovely view as we flew over the Alps.
The scariest part of the trip was actually the trip from the airport to the hotel in the taxi; I have experienced some awful taxi driving in my life but that trip took the biscuit.
The lady who runs the hotel gave me an upgrade which was lovely and I’ve got a great view. The front looks out into a little street and there’s a bakery ACROSS the road and the picture above is my view out the back!
Another brucey bonus was managing to find Estee Lauders discontinued Raisins palette in the duty free store at Manchester Airports and I also picked up a lovely YSL lipstick, so there will be reviews on both of those when I get back.
Today I’m off to the circuit (if I can figure out how to get there!) to start my reporting duties. I only have a couple of posts scheduled while I’m here as I’m unlikely to be able to reply to any comments and I’ll feel mean ignoring you folks.
