Our flight from Canada to Italy via Swiss Air had been relatively uneventful but, as is usual, I was still happy to have my feet back on the ground with luggage in hand and legally into Italy with the blessing of the folks in the Customs and Immigration wickets.
When I travel on my own I don’t expect any fanfare when I arrive so just quickly walk past all of the folks with their signs who are there to meet and greet people. However, when I am on a tour package I rather hope (or expect) that someone from the tour company will be present to say welcome and show me the ropes and quickly get me on my way. Upon arriving in Malpensa Airport, there was no sign held aloft to greet us at our arrival point so, without wasting too much effort, we moved quickly to Plan B and headed over to another section of the terminal where our transfer voucher indicated that a shuttle bus would be waiting for us. We found the right spot without too much problem but no bus and no tour guide were there to greet us either!
