Left a sunny Stockholm, arrived to a gloomy Frankfurt. There’s something about airports, so much energies buzzing with all the people going to different places. Luckily, Frankfurt Airport is very big and I enjoyed staying inside looking at the aircrafts take off.
Flying over these beautiful mountains, the view was amazing. Majestic!
After a dinner marathon the first night at Calaluna, a lighter breakfast was in order, but mostly because we figured the typical Italian breakfast wasn’t really our preference for breakfast. Hotspot tips: V2RAw!
This was great and exactly what we needed. Chia pudding, coffee and a green juice.
So happy I got to see Bosco Verticale, which translates to Vertical Forest.An $85 million project that is be the world’s ”first example” of a vertical forest, according to Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca, and Giovanni La Varra, the architects who designed the project for the firm Boeri Studio.
Since we only had one full day in Milan, first-timers as well we figured to check off a few must-see’s aka. tourist jungles. Duomo, you’re beautiful! Little did we know that the pop was in town too, hence a lot of people in these streets.
Next super tourist spot: Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Very beautiful, and we captured it with a good old selfie.
Fuel-break the Italian way. Not really sure if the Italians does it this way but let’s pretend for the sake of it. We had a pastry from Milano, tasted heaven. Don’t remember the name.
You can’t go to Milan and not have gelato. You just can’t.
The weather was amazing, we skipped the super touristy streets for some touristing the le park. Jokes aside, I missed hanging out in a park. There were different street artists in the park, we stopped by two jazz players and soaked in the sun and the smell of spring.
Piazza del Cannone, this corner reminded me so much of Iran.
I rarely walk in a grocery store and feel the smell of the fruits in Sweden. Abroad, I get excited by all the fruits when walking by a fruit stand. You feel the scent of the fruits, without having to pick them up to actually smell them.
How adorable is this little guys? So adorable that I stalked the poor thing to get a picture.
En route Stockholm! Short and sweet trip to Milan, we had lots of amazing Italian foods, and also Napoli pizza I mentioned here. I’m sure you saw the broccoli pizza if you peeped my Insta-storie. Since there was a lot of food there, I wanted to share other moments. If you are considering to travel to Milan, in one word: GO!
