So, Friday and Saturday are one big blur. Friday we left Philly around 6:15, and it was actually a much easier flight than either of us expected. Somehow we both fell asleep, and stayed asleep for the majority of the flight. And it’s a good thing. Once we landed in Rome on Saturday, we were in for a lot of traveling. First, it took a bit longer to get out of the airport than we had expected.
Next we took a bus to the Termini train station in Rome, where we just missed the 11:40ish train to Naples. Bummer. So, we grabbed some lunch, (and Jason discovered his love for prosciutto) and we took at next train to Naples at 12:45. The guidebooks and everything we had seen preparing for the trip made it seem like all train stations are crawling with helpful and friendly employees. We couldn’t find ONE employee to ask if we were on the right train. But, we were. And it’s a good thing – it was a long trip to Naples (like, over 3 hours long). Once in Naples, we changed trains, and got on the local commuter train to Sorrento. That too was a longer than expected trip. I don’t know if we made up these times in our heads when we were planning or what.
Anyway, we finally arrived around 6ish Italy time on saturday. So, it was pretty much a full 24 hours from when we left our house.
After we got checked in, we cleaned up a little and walked around town a bit. We will put up some photos from that tomorrow. The internet connection is slow, and there are some Italians watching the wrong kind of football for a Sunday. (Go Ravens!)
