Milan photo diary

November 23, 2017
So, I've arrived at the conclusion that I'm the worst at setting any type of schedule for blogging or getting anything done when I plan to but maybe everyone has realised that by now...anyway, if you haven't seen my Verona photo diary yet, Josh and I took a little trip to Italy a few weeks ago and I decided it would be fun to make three separate photo diaries of where we visited so today, it's all about Milan!

My overall thoughts of Milan are that is really lovely but I'm definitely glad we decided to only go for a day trip as there wasn't as much to do without spending way too much money. I would definitely recommend visiting though at some point.


So, our day in Milan obviously started in the train station and one thing I can say is that the train stations seemed so much nicer and looked much lovelier in Italy. I don't know if that's because I'm used to the likes of Plymouth and Exeter stations but having full on supermarkets in train stations is definitely a win for me.

Visting Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle II was definitely one of my favourite parts of the trip. Obviously, I couldn't afford to shop in the likes of Prada, Gucci and Louis Vuitton but it was definitely a really lovely place to be and the building itself was amazing.
It will forever make me laugh how Josh has to bend down to be the same height as me in photos else he has absolutely no chance of even being in shot.
I remember this photo being taken distinctly because 1) It took about 94052 attempts and 2) If you look close enough, you can see a man laying down in the background and I don't know why it made me laugh so much at the time, but apparently it did.
Without a doubt, Duomo was one of our favourite parts of Milan. I don't know who wouldn't like this though to be honest?!
I have a lot to say about this pizza and the restaurant in general so get comfortable. First, Josh ordered it and I ordered some sort of spinach and ricotta cannelloni but mine came and I was like NOPE because strange textures and I do not go well together so Josh agreed to swap with me (bae <3). Anyway, the pizza was really good but probably not worth as much as we paid for it. We had takeaway pizza to our airbnb for 5 euros which was nicer than this. The restaurant placed what seemed to be free bread rolls on the table but NOTHING IS FREE IN THIS WORLD, FOLKS. They also placed a substantially large service fee on the end of our bill and I was NOT impressed. Exploiting tourists or just overpriced anyway? I don't know and I'll never find out because alas, I am British and I do not like making a scene. (I've just realised that the longest part of this blog post right now is about food and now I'm imagining my mother and Josh saying "all you ever talk about is food" which probably, is completely true). Anyway...
When we saw a Bath and Body Works in the distance, it's fair to say my inner blogger squealed more than a little bit. I always see great looking products on people's Instagram feeds and videos so I was INTRIGUED. However, I ended up leaving feeling very disappointed. It just didn't appeal to me as much as I expected it too, especially considering the hype around it. Admittedly, the candles did smell amazing but everything else was a little meeeeh. Also, I will never ever be able to justify that amount of money on a candle, literally burning money.
When you see bae in the distance... all joking aside, I remember this moment incredibly well because all I wanted was a God damn crepe...

AND I GOT ONE! I wish I could say I was lying when I say I had a crepe 4/5 days while being in Italy but I'm not. Actually, I don't wish I was lying at all, it was amazing. Part of me is tempted to do a blog post ranking all of the crepes I consumed on that holiday or would that be incredibly sad of me?! 
Overall, Milan was super lovely. I wanna say I would go again but also like... feel like I've done everything there? (Obviously not everything but yknow)

Next photo diary: Venice
Not even going to give a day for when that's going to be up because I CAN'T STICK TO SCHEDULES, YAY

What's the one place that you would love to visit?
