Journey to Florence

Not eating is a good way to figure out what things will make me hungry. The short answer is EVERYTHING! But seriously, food pictures/smells will trigger hunger for me. However, fasting gets pretty easy after 48 hours. I loaded up on fizzy water and decaf coffee at the Aspire Lounge. 

I hope my crown isn’t too heavy.

I slept through the serving of the meal but was pretty awake the rest of the trip. I downloaded the Top 50 Rolling Stone Albums of 2018 So Far. “Dirty Computer” by Janelle Monae was at the top of the list. The title track has an assist from Brian Wilson! It was followed by Black Panther - The Soundtrack. Is hadn’t seen the movie and since it was available, I watched it before listening to any more music.

I was able to forgo the big start of flight meal and have it served to me for breakfast! We arrived in Zürich with plenty of time to explore the airport. Julia and Lauren went shopping and I went to the newly rennovated SwissAir Lounge. It is very well appointed but packed and hot. If the plan holds together, we’ll be taking a short (1hr 10minute) flight to Florence shortly.
