I’ve arrived at Heathrow. I was able to get my connections reworked: in a couple of hours I’ll leave for Zurich then on to Florence arriving, I hope, at 6:25 this evening. No overnight stay in Rome with a 17 hour wait time to fly to Florence.
That’s the good news. The bad news is my bag was checked to Rome (but I’m now not going through Rome). When I checked in with Lufthansa they thought there would be enough time to pull the bag off the Brussels flight and send it along with me to Zurich, then Florence.
Fingers crossed! We’re leaving Florence early Wednesday morning for Meridiana, 35 minutes from Perugia. I might just end up with a whole new summer wardrobe but I’ll miss my spare glasses, my newish sandals and pink Sketchers that are also in that bag.
I HATE travelling.
