Last weekend I was lucky enough to get to go on a trip with two of my best friends to Milan! If you get a chance to either go on a weekend break with a friend OR go to Milan you should jump at the chance!
For starter, I love Italy! Everything about it, the buildings, the people, the food. Oh my, the food. I admit, I ate pizza 6 times in 4 days. Thats an achievement if ever I saw one! I mean, you have to make the most of it so I did!
The flight from London is about an hour and a half to Milan so it is the perfect location for a weekend getaway and going with my friends made this so much fun from the word go. To sprinting to the gate (no one told us the gate was closing so this was not our fault!) to watching my friends head bobbing in her sleep whilst sitting up like a nodding dog for the whole flight.
Getting into the centre of Milan after wondering through the streets, stopping at the first pizzeria we could find and filling our faces as quickly as possible window shopping as we go at all the luxury brands was incredible.
When we finally started to head towards the hotel, the worst thing happened. Someone tried to pick pocket one of my friends!! Now this may sound naive and I know that you hear about this happening all the times in cities plus Ive been to different cities across the world and never experienced something like this in.my.life. It was shocking! How someone can do this and so quickly as well was just awful! Don’t worry guys, we did not let that stop us! Lesson learnt, be more aware of people around you!
As soon as we had all got over the initial shock we picked ourselves up and headed into the centre right by the Duomo Cathedral and up to a roof top bar looking over the square! This was incredible!!
Day one of Milan. Ups and downs, mainly up! Plenty more fun times to come within Milan and I will have more for you within the next few days!!
