Nothing can spoil the enjoyment of your trip, vacation or travel in Italy than a strike, demonstration or protest march. While most of these events are non-violent, it is best to stay clear of the strike, demonstration or protest march for your personal safety.

You need to be aware of strikes, demonstrations or protest marches because they may affect your travel or transportation plans while you are traveling to/from Italy or when you are in the country. A few years ago, my departure from Italy was delayed by a day and a half by a baggage handlers's work stoppage at Malpensa Airport (Milan). Fortunately for me, American Airlines, provided lodging, meals and transportation from and back to the airport. However, one may incur additional expenses for missed or delayed arrival for reservations for lodging plus unexpected expenditures for additional meals, transportation, clothing, etc.

One last reminder, do not pack your required medications in with your luggage! I cannot tell you how many times, I have spoken to individuals seeking assistance about getting their medications from their checked luggage or finding a drug store/pharmacy to refill a prescription for a required medication because of delayed or lost luggage.

Ciao, Ben

Today’s quote is an Italian proverb, author unknown.

"Chi tardi arriva male allogia."
"The latecomer finds bad lodging."

When you have a free moment or two, please read my wife's interesting and entertaining blog about our life in Italy with photographs:
