Jan 18, 2005 - Milan, Italy

So we decided to head back up north. Sunday morning we hopped on a long long train from Naples to Milan. Back up to Milan we went. Back to the cold weather. But it was really nice to go back up there again. After being in Naples we really could appreciate it this time. We were only there for one night early in our trip. We knew that we had to do our laundry, so we were trying to decide if we wanted to stay one night or two. While we were on the train we found our that they were going to have a one day train workers strike. So that made our...

Dec 17, 2004 - Milan, Italy

We stayed here as an overnight stop-over to the Venice area. We got here in around four. We had a nice train ride after lindsay's issues on the way over to Nice. Aparently Lindsay got the one broken chair on the train. It was awesome! When we first got on the train it wasn't reclining like she wanted. The recline button wasn't working so she just pulled it out by hand. Those chairs only really recline a little but after five minutes the chair would give up and splay her out. It was so funny. Everyone on the train was looking at Lindsay like...

Dec 1, 2004 - Milan

After and early morning walk with Malin to the bus station, she unhappily headed back to not so sunny Sweden and lucky (spoilt me) continued on. Chris, Lou and I then jumped a train and travelled 3 hours to Milan. Had with us the ultimate travellers food (bread rolls, salami and cheese) and a weird Italian guy who just stared and stared at my brother and held a detailed italian conversation with him and occasionaly us. Over all an amusing trip, although lou asked for the temp to be turned up and we started to slow roast in a glass first...

Nov 9, 2004 - Auvoir France, Hi-bye Monico, Ciao Italia! (updated)

On the way from Cannes to Milan, I popped into Monaco, Monte Carlo. Home of a prince and a grand prix. I'd love to see this race in action now knowing how tight and steep these streets are. The place has elevators for pedestrians to get you around. I also popped in to the Prince's car collection. About 105 cars from horse drawn to Countach in immaculate condition. Also had a look at the old town area near the palace before jumping back on the train to Milan. In Milan - I didn't do much except findout that Italian pizza is nothing special...

Oct 14, 2004 - Milan 14th Oct - 16th Oct

As I said in the previous email We had changed hotels due to storm damage. Our new hotel is nice and after settling in we went for a walk to orientate ourselves with the area. We then had a hot bath to warm up and walked to a restraunt for pizza. When we returned to the hotel Heathers cousin Maureen rang and arranged for us to meet outside of the famous Cathedral Duomo for lunch the next day. I went down and caught up on some more emails before retiring. After breakfast we got some direction from the Concierge plus a map and ignoring his...

Sep 26, 2004 - The Italian Lakes and more

September - The Italian Lakes and more! Monday 30th August (don't be picky) Well Neil is home now doing this and that so there will be a change of style for the next few days while Carolyn writes! The biggest change is likely to be one of size - I've always been a believer of the maxim 'small is beautiful' - ever since the day my Dad said it to me when he found me crying because I was so small! (I don't tell everyone that, you should feel privileged - I was about 8 years old at the time). Anyway, Monday came and we both jumped out of bed...

Sep 12, 2004 - Verona & Monza

Friday 10 September - We breakfasted at camp then drove under overcast skies to Verona which was about 20km from our campsite on Lake Garda. We parked just across the river from the old town and walked across a fortified brick bridge into a castle inside the walls of the town. On into the middle of town we arrived at the large square dominated by a 1st Century AD Arena - similar to the Colloseum but in spectacular condition and used for the Veron Opera Festival which had unfortunately just finished. We went inside and sat on the pink and...

Aug 8, 2004 - Milan

Here in Milan, I finally have Internet access, so I updated my Paris journals, which was slightly a struggle as the Italian keyboard may have the letters in the same places, but things like apostrophes, quotations, etc. are difficult to find. Yesterday was rather uneventful. I had breakfast, packed and set out for the train station. I was proud to have figured out a bus route to take that was preferable than navigating the subway and switching trains with my luggage. It was dreadfully hot in the open air train station, which made me glad...
