Jul 9, 2011 - Milan

On the road again heading into Italy, Milan. We decided to take the scenic route and we went up, up and up the mountains, then down, zig zag fashion, then through (5km one way tunnel) and the around and down again, definitely scenic!! We arrived at our Hotel (2km) from city centre (thanks to GPS) and after a rest enjoyed our first Italian meal at a 'Steak House', excellent, thumbs up to Italian food! The waiter was great and helped us with our very limited Italian.

Jul 8, 2011 - Made it to Milano!

I made it to Milan! The flight was so easy, I slept the entire time! Serena and Alessio were waiting for me right as I walked out of my gate. We headed to Alessio's house, where his mom prepared a delicious homemade pasta lunch for us! After taking some time to freshen up, we headed out to explore Milan. We mainly just walked around the city, finding all the best places for Serena and me to come back and shop tomorrow! We walked up to this huge church in the middle of the city, and also saw a museum that holds the original Last Supper...

Jun 14, 2011 - The last supper

We are now in Italy, my long awaited dream destination, at least one of them. After waking up at 5:30 am we had to go through a long string of trains to get to Milan. We got here at around 12:00 and had to take tye metro over to see The Last Supper!!!! Not many people get the opportunity to see the last supper because you have to make reservations early in advance (eric made ours about 3 months ago) and only about 30 people can go in at a time. When we arrived we got there an hour early so we popped over to a small cafe and after getting...

May 4, 2011 - Milan, and the end of my time in Italy

As all great things must do, my time in Italy started coming to an end. Tuesday afternoon I had to leave Amy and Bologna behind me to head for Milan, where my flight was to leave the next day. I had purposefully not left myself much time in Milan because I had not heard super good things about it, but I was pleasantly surprised! It helped that the people at my hostel were incredibly nice and gave me an ever trusty map. That evening I managed to stroll down the length of Buenos Aires, the longest shopping street in Europe (or the world?)...

May 3, 2011 - BMW Welt

I woke up early at the very nice Leonardo Royal Hotel and had a great breakfast. Then it was off down the road to BMW Welt. What a great building. They took my suitcase and directed me up to the owner’s delivery lounge. The paperwork was quickly completed (all in German which I requested to add to the experience) and I was escorted down the stairs to where my new car was waiting. It looked great, the only minor issue is that it was built with an automatic, and I had requested a manual. Not to worry apparently, they’ll build another...

Apr 3, 2011 - Milan - April 1-3

April 1-3, 2011 Milan, Italy I hadn’t really thought about taking too many trips whilst I waited for Elizabeth to get her visa but this weekend was the Milan derby and I decided to bite the bullet, pay the extortionate amount and go and see one of the biggest matches in world football. I won’t tell you how much the match ticket was (because Elizabeth might read this and kill me)! Having found out that the lovely Italians were on strike again, my train on Friday evening was severely delayed getting into the city and when I got there, no...

Mar 5, 2011 - Germany/Italy

Woke up in Heidelberg. Met Deb and her husband for breakfast then we went back downtown so they could get some last minute gifts. I decided to take that time and get a nice little 30 minute Thai back massage! That was a lovely way to end my last day in Germany. We left the hotel around 1 and got to Frankfurt airport in plenty of time. Still surprises me that I didn't use a map one time and I actually survived without my GPS this whole trip. I hope I have the same kind of luck in Italy. After checking in, I had some lunch. Yummy Ramen...

Jan 5, 2011 - Line up & Be patient! It’s shopping time!

Начиная с 3 января, я решила объединять дни группами, в связи с тем, что никаких особо ярких событий не происходит. Помнится, недавно я болела и была в горах. Что же. Пара суток – и я вновь на ногах, вновь в Милане! Вчера (4 января) день прошел чертовски примитивно. Сборы-переезды бла бла бла. Сегодня! Хо хо хо. Распродажи-то начались)) Дабы избежать злых языков и неистовой зависти, умолчу, что я успела купить. Поделюсь впечатлениями… Проснулась в 7 утра, чтобы быстро позавтракать и бегом первой на порог магазинов. Но! Не тут-то было.....

Dec 30, 2010 - Results 2010. People.

Сегодня был потрясающий день! Впервые за время отдыха я проснулась в 8 утра. Будильник старался изо всех сил. Утром пробежка, легкий бриф в жизнь, в которой меня нет, и завтрак. Завтрак типично итальянский – практически никакого) И позже как всегда пешком до Дуомо. Я второй раз зашла в Ля Ринашенте, чтобы купить эти замечательно пахнущие сердца. Вновь взяла 2, вновь сделала круг по этажу и вновь положила их в корзину. Я подумаю об этом завтра (с) Праздничный обед, посвященный уходящему 2010. Так называемый подвод итогов… Вот оно все лучшее...

Dec 29, 2010 - Smell of Stuggi & A piece of Portuguese tonight

Сбилась со счета, в который раз собираю чемоданы. Очередной переезд! Накануне с Леной составили четкий план действий, дабы не отклониться от него и не забыть что-нибудь важное. Первое, что мы сделали утром, это забыли посмотреть в план. Итак, совпал только первый пункт – выйти из дома. Астрономическое количество магазинов в Милане то и дело сбивает с пути. Только вспоминаешь, куда идешь.. и все опять под откос. Все опять не по плану! Так мы провели в магазинах бОльшую часть дня. Опять. Слава Богу, хоть не за столом. Хотя за уровень своего...

Dec 28, 2010 - Tiffany& Co - Bag for Bread. Vanzago Time.

Проснулась в Ванцаго. В принципе, как и планировала) Легкий завтрак и вперед ! Сегодня день оказался сверхУдачным! Батареи садились и на телефоне .. и на компьютере – потом резко обновлялись, без розеток, электричества и прочих вспомогательных средств. Силой мысли! Поезд, на который по всем правилам я должна была опоздать.. Опоздал сам .. а вот я успела! В магазине за покупку булочки мне подарили сумку! Множество мелочей.. безумно приятных)) Как уже не вспомнить про Tiffany&Co бум! Громкие Sales. И как уж я могла пройти мимо. Поздравляю...
