Sunday Post #44, Home, Sweet Home

The Sunday Post is hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer.  It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things received, and share news about what is coming up on the blog for the week ahead. To get in on the Sunday fun, see the rules here: Sunday Post Meme.

      It is so good to be home. I enjoyed my trip to Sicily very much. We were taken care of and spoiled. I tried so many new things of Italian, namely Sicilian cuisine, that I had to buy a cook book. I am not sure if I will manage it the same way, but definitely I will try.
   I had quite an adventure in Rome airport, where we had our transit, one of the passports was missing and we missed the last flight. Luckily, the passport was recovered at the police point, but still we had to work out alternative roots back home. So we flew to the closest city and my relative was driving to pick us up. So 14 hours later, 200 euros lighter (God bless cheep airlines) we finally reached home. I must say, that is not experience I would like to repeat. Not because of the money loss, but all the stress you have to go through.
      Reading was not impressive. I finished two books that I was reading for almost a month now, so not boasting here.
Goodreads
    One thing though: I found great comics series. I am not fan of comics and I do not read them at all. I randomly picked it up because of the drawings. Guys, I could not put it down! The problem is, the series is in French, and I read it in translation and so I cannot find any information when and if the series will be continued.

    1. Yes this really stressful, but it happens, so once everything is resolved I consider it an adventure))

  6. I'm glad to hear your trip to Italy was a good one overall. The issue with the passport doesn't sound fun, but the rest of it does. I visited there a few years ago and would love to go back someday. It was so beautiful and the food was just divine.
