Today we set our sights homeward. Mr Audia had masterfully prepared an itinerary for us that allowed our group to check out at a leisurely 10am… A storm which had started last night, the first of our trip continued into the morning. As we boarded the bus outside our hotel the rain turned to mist. Guiseppe told us it was Rome crying because we were leaving. At the airport, before going through security, we all said a big “Arrivederci” to Giuseppe, giving him some parting gifts of a Vancouver photo-book and Purdy’s chocolates. We made him promise to come visit us so that we could reciprocate a tour of Vancouver for him. Once we were through security into the departures area, our group had one last chance for gelato and, of course, made the most of it. Some last minute duty-free shopping and we finally lifted off on our British Airways flight just after 1pm… homeward bound.
A few bonus items to share with everyone. Below you’ll find a link to a library of photos housed on Dropbox. You can download photos you want individually, or you can download entire folders of photos as zip files.
