    Italien - Mailand #1

    April 21 in Italy

    Wir hatten ein tolles verlängertes Wochenende im
    schönen Mailand mit traumhaften Wetter!😊
    Bei fast 30 Grad in der Sonne waren wir von morgens bis abends unterwegs in der Stadt und haben natürlich ganz viel Eis, Pizza und Pasta gegessen😄
    Am liebsten würden wir hier noch ein paar Tage dranhängen, die Temperaturen, das Essen und die Menschen haben uns so gut gefallen, dass wir gar nicht so schnell wieder Nachhause wollen 😉Read more

    Mailand ist erreicht

    August 17, 2017 in Italy

    Nach einer kleinen cabel park Tour in Berlin und Hannover haben wir jetzt auch Mailand erreicht. Heute gibt es etwas Entspannung und Kultur,wir sind natürlich mit dem Fahrrad unterwegs. Ersteinmal zum Dom, der ist aus weißen Marmor aber die Schlange am Eingang ist so groß das wir erstmal weiter gehen😉,eine Stunde bei 37 Grad warten, macht ja keinen Spaß. Deswegen geht es jetzt in das Studenten Viertel. Danach geht es in das Mode Viertel.
    Leider kann ich auch nach zehn Tagen immer noch nicht richtig abschalten. Ich muss immer wieder an zwei Frauen denken ,wie es ihnen geht und warum ich mit der einen kein Kontakt mehr habe. Ich Frage mich immer wieder warum mir meine Frau so sehr fehlt und ich einfach nicht abschalten kann aber morgen geht es ja wieder auf die Bretter. Dann heißt es wieder ab ans cabel und Spaß haben. Vielleicht lernen wir ja einen richtig guten Park kenne. In Mailand oder auf dem Weg nach Paris. Und wieder ist ein Tag geschafft jetzt heißt es noch duschen ,das Kind ins Bett bringen. Noch ein paar Minuten allein sein und den Tag passieren lassen.

    Milano Centrale

    December 28, 2015 in Italy

    Une photo emblématique... Pas facile à s'acclimater🇮🇹. Juste arrivés avec 30' de retard, nous tentons d'acheter en vitesse, avant notre correspondance, un Burger King. Cela aura été la commande la plus lente de l'histoire. Et cela ne sert à rien de lui dire que nous avons un train à prendre🗯, il ralenti d'autant plus...😭
    Un petit sprint (pas Spritz...) et nous avons tout de même attrapé notre FrecciaBianca.🚅Read more

    Milano

    May 15, 2017 in Italy

    Saw the sights in Milan today.. Castello Sfrozesco, Parco Sempione, Il Duomo..
    Warm for us Brits here, even now and its only May!!
    We climbed the steps up to the top of Il Duomo (its cheaper) and the view was as impressive there as the interior.
    Saw all the Italian elite out shopping. Wandering past Prada in my primark trousers I must admit I mentioned to Stuart that if we cut out trip short by a month I could buy myself a bag...
    Hotel is really good - huge room and good breakfast - but onto our first night camping tomorrow. Heading down to Tuscany to attempt to erect the tent without our tent assistant Soph :) wish our marriage good luck!

    Milan (IT)

    July 28, 2017 in Italy

    The city has long been named Fashion Capital of the World. Today was a day for exploring, on foot, and a bit of Metro.

    The Milan cathedral is the 3rd largest in the world, and took nearly 600 years to build. That's just mind boggling !!

    Accommodation was a B&B with a view of onto one of the main fashion streets. Free entertainment from the small balcony watching all the hustle and bustle in the street below, and in the evening some musicians added to the entertainment.Read more

    Milan (IT)

    July 27, 2017 in Italy

    Leaving Lake Como and Lecco, I eventually found a path (away from the traffic) alongside the river leading away from the lake. Along the river were a number of small hydro electric plants and locks to control the flow.

    Getting closer to Milano I was able to follow a canal that guided me into the city. With 10km to go I then resorted to the trusty GPS to guide me into the city.

    More bike repairs in order and the trusty stead is spending the evening at a friendly bike shop. Will be collecting the stead tomorrow evening ready for the next leg.Read more

    Day 2
    Had an early start due to jet lag. Woke up at 430am. Had breakfast at 6.30am and walked to see Leonardo Last Supper at Sant Maria Delle Grazie. It was Amazing!!! Then a free walking tour with Walkabout, with a great guide for 3 and a half hours around Milan. We then proceeded to have a good look at the inside and outside and upside and downside of the Duomo.
    We saw some stunning paintings and sculptures. Went down to the crypt to see the favourite cardinal and the arch of the covenant. Then to the Duomo museum and then up to the terrace of the Duomo for a panoramic view of Milan and the sunset. Now resting in a catholic church actually attending mass as they don't serve dinner till 7pm. In total we have walked 14.4km.
    Had yummy cannocini pastry before mass at Pannerello.

    Milan: Keep Right

    November 13, 2017 in Italy

    Day 1
    Keep right, look right. That will keep me from bumping into others, and basically, keep me alive. I realised that as a vespa scooter and I almost became too acquainted.

    After having the fastest check in, at 3.45pm, of any airbnb apartment, Grace and I walked to Navigli. Navigli is a system of network of canals used in 12th and 13th medieval Milan. Today, a gentrified area has developed around the only 2 canals that remain. We went there for dinner, but after a stroll around, we fled the overpriced tourist dominated area, back towards our apartment in Sant Ambrogio. We did hear the beautiful ringing of bells from a church hidden behind an enormous, and I mean gigantic, billboard for Calvin Klein underwear.

    During our transit in Dubai, Grace and I subscribed to The Fork, a website that offers reviews of restaurants, discounts, and points for booking through them. Much like Dimmi in Australia. When we got closer to our apartment, we opened the app to search for "nearby restaurants". We found Posta Cucina Espressa. What a delightful first meal. We arrived an hour before the kitchen opened at 7.30pm, but the very friendly waiter welcomed us in and hurried the kitchen staff to cater for an early dinner for us. He had just returned from 2 years in Australia, and offered to be our personal Google translate. He lived up to the offer when he translated not only the menu, but also the 7 sms Vodafone sent after being connected to Italy Vodafone. The food was fresh and flavoursome, with the calamari and buffalo mozzarella my favourite.

    We congratulated ourselves for staying up as we tumbled into bed shortly after 9pm, 2am Perth-body time.

    Day 3 Milan

    November 15, 2017 in Italy

    We spent 3 and the half hours in the Pinacoteca Brera, the art gallery that housed Italian painters like Cresti, Mantegna, Bellini, Raphael, Caravaggio etc
    Beautiful paintings from the Gothic through to Renaissance, to the modern.
    We had a truffle filled lunch after the Brera.
    Nothing like art to whet an appetite not to mention the mileage of walking we've embarked on since arriving in Milan.
    We also visited San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore
    and Baslica Ambrogio.
