Bit of a late blog post about mine and Rob’s wet weekend in Milan. We were staying in Switzerland for the winter and decided to take advantage of the small scale of Europe (compared to Canada): we went to Milan for the weekend. I felt I had to buy a new coat and handbag because I thought a ski jacket & backpack would look out of place. This was true enough, but in fact it pretty much poured rain for the whole weekend and I’d have stayed more dry in my ski jacket.
The architecture was amazing as was the food. In particular the ‘aperativio’ – kind of like happy hour with food. Plus lots of teeny, tiny espresso coffees for just one Euro. It was a fun weekend, but Milan is not the place for a couple of mountain folk!
