Be warned. If you are one of those people that needs everything to be punctual and organised to be happy, Italy might not be the destination for you. We booked a table at Pizzeria Da Zero (tempted by its sky high ratings and reputation for the best pizza in Milan) for lunch one week day. […]
If you fancy a spot of Architecture Appreciation of an early Milan morning, might I suggest you head straight to Centrale Station where you should grab a punchy espresso to kick start your day (we loved the traditional cafe with its long bar and chandelier! Pay for your coffee at the till, give the barista […]
Slightly cheating with this week’s Sunday Photo, but come on English people, there hasn’t been much to photograph in a week full of rain and greyness. I took this photograph in our little Navigli apartment at the end of a long day’s exploring, and it has to be one of my favourites of our trip […]
Parents be warned. If your friendly Milanese landlady shoves chocolates into the hands of your bambinos when you first arrive at your apartment for the week, do immediately check the contents, especially of those that your rather “obsessive about chocolate” toddler stuffs into his mouth before you can actually count how many he has digested.

In England they say you are never more than 70 miles from the sea – which, if we are speaking in driving terms, means that you are technically never more than an hour from it wherever you are in the country (give or take a traffic jam or two, some incredibly thin and winding English […]
Switzerland is definitely one of those countries that looks exactly as it does in your mind’s eye before you visit, which is quite a rare thing nowadays come to think of it… Vietnam looked nothing like I imagined, Sarajevo looked more like Istanbul than I ever expected, Denmark was much flatter and had more bikes than […]
Cambridge isn’t exactly known for its hills, something I have found quite strange at times having lived for a long time in a country that has more than its fair share of gradients. It’s not like I haven’t lived anywhere equally pancake flat before however – Denmark in general, I am looking at you… Whilst […]
