Going there we had some turbulence, enough so that they had to suspend the hot drink portion of the flight. My cousin maintains it was mild but she's ridiculous. We also had a delay leaving Montreal because we had to wait for another plane to arrive and 56 people on it to get on our plane.
Coming back there was no turbulence but a delay of 40 minutes leaving.
Well, there wasn't a place in Italy to get a bad cappuccino. Tomatoes, steak, veggies, it's all so much tastier and sweeter than here.
I had pizza twice, once in Formicola and once in Naples, both amazing. Our great uncle made us penne with cherry tomatoes and it was divine. We also had steak there, and I don't like steak but I ate the whole thing it was so good, and it was like the size of my plate, lol.
In Modena we ate a lot at my cousin's place. She and her husband are very good cooks. The first night we had a dish where they took a tortilla, warmed it on the stove, then spread on a soft cheese, prosciutto, and arugula or radicchio on it (dressed in olive oil and balsamic vinegar.) They made us penne with cooked radicchio and zucchini another day with some olive oil. Another day we had spaghetti with clams in an olive oil sauce. We had a mushroom risotto which was really good and my first time trying a risotto. And another day we had a linguine with a spicy tomato sauce with pancetta, onions, and arugula.
And in Venice I had a wonderful spaghetti with scallops in a white wine and butter sauce and homemade tiramisu with a glass of prosecco.. I'm now a huge fan of prosecco, lol.
Breakfasts were always some sort of pastry, usually a croissant filled with custards or Nutella and a cappuccino. It was amazing! Although at the end I was really craving a bagel with cream cheese, lol.
I'm going to miss the food, lol.
