Oct 2, 2012 - Trezzo-sul-Adda (near Milan)

Tuesday October 2 We left the Parc Hotel in Briançon quite early and headed out towards Italy. It was another sunny day. The drive over the Col de Montgenevre pass into Italy was quite spectacular, lots of twists and turns and a few tunnels. Once over the pass in Italy we stopped at Cesana for a morning coffee in a local bar. We decided not to take the autostrada immediately but to drive through some of the smaller towns for while. To boost our Navigational confidence, we managed to determine that we could change the CD in the built-in...

Then we went to the Duomo and walked through the church. Archie and Edward lit a candle and said a prayer. Archie prayed to be helpful to God and Edward prayed to go on the...

Jul 21, 2012 - Bye Achenkirch, hello Milano

Today we left Achenkirch. It was raining and only about 12 degrees, so it was a good day to leave. Mum was sad to be leaving. We said goodbye to Leo and Helene and the kids and promised we would be back.  We dropped the car off at the airport and made it to the train station. We had first class tickets but we realized we didn't have seats assigned to us. To get that there was am extra charge but we were too late anyway. thankfully we got a cabin with 4 seats but we found first class to be a total rip off on the   Austrian train. The Italian...

Jul 1, 2012 - Peschiera del Garda vers Milano

Jour 5 Peschiera Del Garda 29 juin 2012 La ville est magnifique. Cela valait le détour surtout que nous sommes qu’à 14 minutes de train de Vérone. Des bateaux et traversiers voguent sur une eau limpide et turquoise qui entourent la ville…c’est nettement dépaysant. La ville est calme et propice au repos. Nous profitons d’une terrasse face à la mer pour reprendre notre souffle et mettre par écrit notre journée. Nous arrivons à Milan en soirée. La gare est immense et d’une beauté rare. C’est une gare terminus qui fut inaugurée officiellement...

Jun 14, 2012 - Italy - Milan

4th June 2012 (Bed 42) We arrived in Milan early enough to catch a tram to the centre of town. No information centres for us today, we just felt like walking around at our own pace and seeing what we could discover for ourselves. As we stepped off the tram in the main square, you would be blind not to notice and be mesmerised by the sheer size and splendour of the Duomo cathedral. It instantly drew us towards it, and we stood in amazement studying the intricate details of the facade. Unlike churches in the UK and France the facade of this...

Jun 11, 2012 - Ciao Milano and Como

Ciao and Hello Italy Can I firstly say that I am embarrased by the little amount of Italian that I know. Having said that, I am now fluent in "Excuse me, do you speak English?", "Hello", "Goodbye" and "Thankyou". I started my trip in Milan by visiting the Milan Cathedral. As you would know, I am not at all reglious, but extremely facitated by the intricacy of the architecture and the grandure of the buildings. And the amazing artwork within them is worth the visit. I then made my way to The Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie which for...

Finding Cheryl 2012

May 24, 2012 - and in Milan

By this time, I had the suitcase full of guidebooks from all the museums and sites I'd visited, so I took a cab to the London Hotel in Milan. This was a business type hotel in a quiet neighborhood near a two good restaurants. Since it was Milan, I sampled the risotto and my last chance at Italian wine. Delisio. For my 3/4 day of sightseeing, I chose Milan's Duomo and Square, complete with pigeons, a band, and lots of sidewalk looking. More statues, gold, and paintings. Italian pizza is not like Pizza Hut -- it's thin with a thin coating of...

Apr 18, 2012 - Touring Milan

We began our day at the Marriott Milan with breakfast in the Executive Suite (Marriott Gold Elite status thank you). We met our guide Lorenza in the lobby at 8:45. Susan gets lots of credit for tracking down Lorenza over the internet, setting up our visit, and arranging through Lorenza to get tickets to seeLeonardo DaVinci’s “The Last Supper.” Lorenza was our personal guide for 4 hours, so we used her well. She taught us how to find the subway and to use it effectively. WE bought an all day ticket, which proved to be very valuable later....

Apr 17, 2012 - A great introduction to Italy

Flying into Milan we could see the Alps poking up through the fog down in the valleys. We arrived about 30 minutes early. We found the one bag we checked, got our passports stamped, and walked out the exit to see Felix Dazza. Felix is a friend of King Cavalier, a fellow that I shoot with who goes by the alias Brother King. When I told Brother King we were going to Italy, he suggested that I contact Felix, who lives near Milan. Brother King put us both in touch by email, and we arranged for Felix to meet us at the airport. And so our trip to...

Apr 16, 2012 - Flying to Milan

On our way to Milan. Dutch came over and gave us a ride to the airport. We are applying the lessons we learned form last trip to keep our bags small and few. We are all packed for 6 weeks in two suitcases and two carry-on bags. Flew to Newark in an uneventful flight, had a small layover, then headed out to Milan. We were flying business class, which was very comfortable--good food, good wine, and a comfortable flight. We were in one of the quietest first class cabins in a long time. Maybe because they were flying to Milan, the Italian...

Last night i awoke at 4am and decided to Skype brother Steve! How cool it was to see him, talk to him, and catch up! Fell out again and slept pretty darn good in this little twin bed, windows open, and cool air filtering in! They have a very nice breakfast set up, included!, and the best damn espresso.....for me double shot, 2 of those and then a cappuccino to take up to the room. No doubt the jet lag, time change caught up with me and I was feeling it this morning! Headed out to Viale Papiniano for the largest street market I have ever...

Mar 30, 2012 - Treking Milan!

I awoke this morning....updated you regarding moving to a hotel, and getting to know the city! Well my friends, my hotel is in a excellent location, both room and the hotel itself, being steps away from the piazza de duomo!! It sports a little twin bed, small table, and full bath....bidet and all!! LOL! It also has open windows that pigeons like to roost and scare the hell out of you when you poke your head out! I checked in, and hit the streets....visited 2 churches, both of which candles were lit for both my daddy and my little pat! Of...
