We're in Italy for our annual visit. I love it when everything goes smoothly - flight on time, connections made, and even managed a few hours of sleep on the plane!
This year we had a nonstop flight from LAX to Rome - 11 hours and then a short jump to Bologna. Leaving in the afternoon PST and arriving in the afternoon Italian time is really the way to go - the jet lag is so much less! Instead of falling asleep on the car ride from the airport to my mother-in-law's home, we were wide awake and ready to go!
In fact, the next day after arrival my husband and I went on a 60 km bike ride through the mountainous region of Emilia Romagna where we stay. Let's just say you're either going uphill or downhill - but it's countless miles of incredible beauty. Here are pictures showing some of the amazing views we enjoy while cycling in this region:
|Rolled hay and wind generators|
|Town center of Civago|
|Fountain in Civago|
|View from S. Pellegrino in Alpe|

Fino alla prossimo volta (until the next time)!
