Things to see in Milan


A bucket list must have.

My heart has never left Italy since that Rome trip. And it has definitely not been cured by the most recent one to Milan. I might just ramble on about how amazing its buildings, dishes and lifestyle are, but I will let the old saying “one picture means a thousand words” prove  my point.


Duomo Cathedral

Now, I will just state, as I did in my Vienna post, that you need to book ahead if you want to avoid the queues. By the way, right near it is Royal Palace of Milan which holds various exhibitions.


Castelo Sforzesco

I am a history lover and I ain’t gonna lie! But let’s be real for a second, who doesn’t love roman battles and intrigues?! Sforza family was one of the most influential ones back in the days and this magnificent building is a clear proof for it.


Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II 

Even if Prada was never in your budget, a glance through this amazing establishment is a must.


P.S: just try everything!



The many places of Thames


All sides of the river in different towns.

I have mentioned it in previous articles, but never spoke about it entirely and somehow I fell like I took it for granted, neglect it. I am lucky enough to have the rive on almost half an hour walk, and been lucky enough to see it in London, Windsor and obviously Reading.


By spotting the differences between these places is noticeable that it doesn’t get much attention in every single one of them. However, the history lover comes out of me and aims to salute this wonderful old river who’s been a staple of England, enduring awful climates and giving people infections and death. Savage!

On a more joyful note, it is more than lovely to have a picnic by the river side in one of the not so common sunny days. A walk near it can be more than relaxing, especially when exams are knocking, hitting, throwing books at my door.


Didn’t quite realized  that I have seen so many “places” of Thames, but I am glad I did.
