Summary blog
I love a good summary blog. Thanks for taking us along, and especially giving us an insight into the Intrepid Travel trip in Croatia. We are a long way off writing our summary/epilogue blog for the Greece trip... but I do enjoy the process of writing one - it gives such a nice air of reflection to the whole trip. Looking forward to hearing about your plans for your next trip :)

Summary blog
We really enjoyed the Intrepid Croatia trip and would definitely recommend it!

Stand by
I've never experienced standby and I've often wondered what happens to people's luggage. I have a friend who travels standby but I've only heard of her experiences when leaving from her home airport (i.e., she goes back home), but it's a whole different situation when you are stranded overseas. Glad it all worked out, but I can image the level of stress of trying to figure things out.

Stand by
OMG yes, it was SO stressful. But we will definitely have more contingency plans in the future, in the event of not getting on a flight. It was a learning experience!

Roma the eternal city
Oh wow! Ok, Italy hasn't been on our radar to re-visit, but your food and architecture shots have really made me want to go back for more. Sound like you had an amazing time, and I'm so glad you took us along for the ride :)

Limoncello
Thanks Lori, I love this city very much and loved reading of your city tour. The Pantheon is my most favourite building ever, and it never fails to take my breath away when I walk in. Rome has so many such amazing architectural feats. Your 'big' night made me groan in sympathy with you. Well done for getting through an early start when you were feeling rough! I've had a similar limoncello experience and it's taken me many many years to get to a point where I can enjoy it again :D

Limoncello
Thanks Ren - I'm glad you enjoyed the city tour blog. I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't been feeling so rough ... I still can't face limoncello!

Thank you!
Thank you again for taking me on one of your trips with you Lori! I have indeed enjoyed following along with you, and I enjoy reading particularly about the sights you see and the food - it seems food is a very important part of travel for you, and it's good to see you've enjoyed lots of that! I'm planning a short trip to Italy in February, and am thinking of visiting Croatia sometime next year or so, so these blogs have not only been enjoyable to follow, they've also given me some good inspiration for my own travels. Glad you got home safely and are now rested, and I love the idea of a post-trip contemplation blog, with a photo summary of your journey - it's like I did the journey again with you one more time in fast-forward! All the best to you both 😊

And That's a Wrap
Thank you so much Alex, for reading and commenting! If you do go to Croatia, I'll be very interested reading your blogs! :)

Long Road Home
Gosh, that felt quite stressful to read. I remember my flight to Stockholm being cancelled a few years ago, and the stress I felt being put on standby for the next flight. Fortunately I got on, but I understand it is not a nice wait at all. Great to hear of course that you got home safely, well done! But what a journey...!

Beautiful Rome
So many beautiful churches and sights around every corner, it really is a wondrous city. I love your quote β€œYou are Peter and upon this rock I will build my church", and how moved you were being in such a holy place. What an amazing city Rome is, and I think you've really captured this in your blog.

Beautiful Rome
Oh thanks, Alex, that's so nice of you to say. St. Peter's was pretty incredible.

Ross, Susan and I in the streets of Alberobello

Good photo
I like the sound of all the small towns and villages you're exploring. I suppose it's the benefit of having a car in the regional areas. I love pistachio gelato but have never had it combined with chocolate - I'll have to look out for it :)

Glad you liked the photo Ren! And yes, I think you definitely need a car to explore that area of Italy. I really enjoyed seeing those different towns and areas. The chocolate pistachio combination was good, but I did find the chocolate gelato just too "chocolaty", so I preferred just the pistachio by itself.

β€œThe whole world is a narrow bridge and the main thing is not to be afraid”
I like that quote too! Some of the Baroque artistry in your photos is definitely over the top. I love travel days like this... getting under the skin of a new place by pottering around :)

Bella Roma!
Ah, how beautiful! What an amazing city Rome is, and so much history! It seems that you packed so much into one day, and well done particularly as it seems you weren't feeling too well - sorry to hear... Great that you were able to get the pant suit done, and walk around Italy in Italian style! Indeed, The Colosseum is certainly one of those places you can't quite believe you're there when you visit it. I love places like this. Looks like you had an amazing start to your time in Rome 😊

Bella Roma!
Yes, Rome was pretty incredible, even though we were only there for a short time. And my not feeling well was entirely self-inflicted, so I deserve no sympathy, ha ha πŸ˜‚.

Italian Cars
I love how you named the rental car! I got quite attached to mine in Iceland, lol. I think I should also give my next one a name too...! I also love the teeny Fiat 500 - I haven't seen one of those in years! The trulli look truly amazing (!), very interesting architecture, and very interesting to read about how they came about.
21st November 2022

Italian Cars
My brother had already named the car when we joined them, LOL And yes, the trulli were such an amazing site, especially as there were SO many, it was just amazing.

Churches
Beautiful churches Lori, such history in each Italian city - I find them amazing, how old and yet how modern they seem to be. Good to see you continuing to enjoy some family time, good food and drink πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

Churches
Oh, we saw so many beautiful churches in Italy! And yes, lots of family time, food and drink :)

Ah how cute :) Does your brother blog on TravelBlog too? I have a very special place in my heart for Italian food and your food photos look amazing :)

My brother doesn't use TravelBlog - he's tried a few different blog sites (I can't remember the one he used for their latest Italy trip). Glad you like the food photos!
