Qatar Ep.2: Problem Solver!

A couple of crazye days for me! In order to be able to race in Qatar I had no choice if not to go back to Italy to get another engine for the race. On Tuesday morning I went to the airport and found a cheap ticket to go to Rome, the flight was the same day at 22:40. Got onto the first flight which went to Bahrain, waited 3 hours in the airport and then got the flight to Rome. Arrived at Fiumicino airport at 6:45 am I then hopped on the train to Rome Termini Central Station, there I got a ticket for Padova (700km). Around 13:00 I got to Padova where my grandfather waited me with his car, drove all the way to Verona got the engine and went to the train station again. By 18:00 I was back on the train heading back to Rome and arrived at 21:30 then my friends Antonio and Beatrice where really nice to come pick me up since I was having a bit of trouble walking around with the engine which is quite heavy to carry. At 22:30 I was at my parents home in Rome, went to sleep and Wednesday morning at 8 I went back to Fiumicino Airport where I catched the flight to Bahrain and then to Doha and finally got to the hotel at midnight!! First mission accomplished! Here some photos of my crazy trip :P
