I had a rare day to myself this past week, where I spent a lovely morning finally catching up with my friend Pia from Peppercorn’s in my Pocket, before a leisurely lunch, and getting to explore the re-opened Kettle’s Yard in Cambridge (post coming soon). The house is full of beautiful art and nature. I […]
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.

Bergamo’s grand duomo is so intricate and beautiful it obviously takes a lot of cleaning. This spot of holy hoovering really made me laugh in a setting so typically silent… The end of the Easter hols is in sight, I might get some time to write again very soon!!
Not the best quality shot, but a hastily taken one as the guy happened to walk past and look up at the kissing couple on the Art Gallery poster. Made me wonder if it had reminded him of his anniversary or something… Lots of Milan coming up!
Hope you all have a really lovely Easter weekend! Taking a little break this week whilst the kids and I explore Milan. Back very soon. x
