Gia-Gina Across the Pond

So I've decided to follow my husband to his native Italy. Follow our adventures as we eat, drink, travel, adapt to and explore this remarkable country. Part food blog, part photo blog but mostly my rants and raves. After our two years in Italy, we relocated across the Atlantic "pond" and are back in the States.

Our Air Shipment Arrives

As promised Microsoft in conjunction with Graeble international movers delivered our air shipment this morning at 10:15 a.m. (Within 2 weeks). I was dismayed to see that almost every box had been opened and inspected by US customs. Things were not put back properly but after a quick inspection, we discovered nothing had been damaged. We were especially worried about our stroller and our camera equipment. The camera cases that we used were very well cushioned and everything made it okay. Maybe US customs routinely inspect goods from Europe. Graeble told that they ripped through our container and a container that arrived from Turkey. (Good luck to them getting through our 300 boxes.)

I am glad to have our stroller. Our temporary apartment is close to the water and only about .5 miles from Marymoor Park. Veronica, Zavier and I will enjoy long walks to the park and back, all three of us love the sun and will definitely be out and about when the sun is out. Now that our household essentials have arrived, we can look forward to really settling in.

Luckily everything arrived in almost one piece.
