CITY GUIDE: WEEKEND AWAY IN MILAN

CITY GUIDE: WEEKEND AWAY IN MILAN

A whirlwind adventure away as her feet run up the steps to her plane….​

Fresh Pizza, Fresh Pasta, Fresh Seafood, Fresh Pastries from the bakery…
Gelato in an abundance of flavours for sunny afternoons & Aperitivo to celebrate each night

​A City of Fashion housing the trendiest styles surrounded by the most magnificent architecture

It’s only the land of her dreams!

Oh Milano…

Even as I think back to my far too few days in my beloved Milano, I feel twangs of heart ache. In many ways, I can say I’ve found my true love this February (sorry honey!) The lifestyle, The Food, The Drinks, The Fashion, The Buildings…

….even the damn water flowing out your taps that comes from the Alps!

Everywhere I looked,  my eyes fell for the beauty surrounding your streets…
whether it was the intricacy in your architecture
or the city-dwellers making the street their catwalk!

I’ve always said…
I don’t need a Valentine, I need Valentino!

Milano, it could not be truer!

Like a whirlwind romance,  my weekend with you came to an end too soon, our blossoming romance was cut short abruptly…

And like the ending of any true love story,
​I promised to return one day as I watched you disappear amongst the clouds 
​& I flew away…

I shall return & until then I shall send visitors to see your beauty for their own eyes!
