Italy trip - Colosseum and around

Like in previous post, i said, this year has started on a good note.

Always wanted to visit Italy esp Rome to see the magnificent architecture and golden history of Roman empire.

After applying for visa, though i have provided them with all necessary documentation, consulate office called for a personal interview. Not that they asked anything different from what was already answered in the documents, i feel they just want to meet personally before issuance of Visa. The only problem at the consulate was the wait in a non-ventilated area for almost 2 hours. There were atleast 20 people in a seating area with no fan/AC/Cooler.

Finally! the happy news - got the VISA.

Now the problem, if you are not a frequent flyer, in booking the night flight is - DATE. For airlines, after midnight date changes but your mind still calculates as previous date.

All said and done. Reached my dream destination - Rome.
