My Trip to Milan :)

Hey everyone!
So recently I was in Milan to visit my flatmate from university who lives in a town near there (Busto Arsizio), she is a very good friend of mine and so I wanted to see where she came from and I was honestly blown away. We went to Milan, to Stresa (where Lake Maggiore is (the second largest lake in Italy)) and to some surrounding towns too. I can honestly say that I loved every second of my trip.

Spin around 3 times on the bull in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
for good luck.

Sky near the lake of Varese, the clouds looked like velvet -
although it wasn't captured well on camera, it was
an amazing sight.

So I hope you enjoyed seeing Milan through my eyes! I literally loved every second of it and want to go again real soooon :)
I want to give a special mention to Giulia who invited me to stay at her house in Busto Arsizio, and to her parents who were generous enough to make me food and drive us around to see more places :) Another mention goes to Luigi and Lorenzo, who taught me a few phrases in Italian (Ciao Zio if you are reading) and were just awesome, everyone I met made my stay in Italy ten times better, thanks guys! :)
