Sorry for such a late post! I have been meaning to blog, but I have been incredibly busy! Anyway! Milan is beautiful. In fact I am pretty convinced that anywhere in Italy is beautiful. I fell in love with Rome a couple of summers ago, and I most certainly have fallen in love with the beauty of Milan.
( I am having great difficulty writing this blog, as it keeps deleting my words or changing it! I think it is because I am in Italy and the website keeps trying to change it to Italian or something! Really starting to bug me, it is taking me twice as long to write a sentence.)
Let's start with the day I arrived here in Milan. I woke at an ungodly hour (I woke at 3:15? We were out the house by 4am. I couldn't sleep, partly because I am an over-thinker and the fact there was a helicopter flying really low around 11 / 12ish that night. So basically got about 3 hours sleep. I am not a morning person so I was definitely pissed and tired. Hell hath no fury! I was in no mood to talk to anyone.
After getting to the airport and flying to Milan Malpensa Airport it was about 11 Milan time. I got the coach to the city centre and met my host family. (Mary, a teacher at my school). We went back to her apartment and she showed me my room and then we headed out into the city centre as she needed to do some shopping and it gave me the chance to see the city.
It was called Cioccolati Italiani, basically Italian Chocolate in English. It was amazing, I got a cone and it had melted chocolate at the bottom of your choice. I went with white chocolate. That was a mistake because it was stupidly sweet haha, but still good at the same time. (I did feel sick afterwards though haha)
(My laptop or rather this website really should stop editing what I write, it is really getting on my last nerves. Stupid Google translate.)
Take out pizza! Cost just 6 euros! You can't get a pizza at that price in England! It also taste so much better than it does in England. I also had Gelato...I have made it a weekly thing ha. This gelato place is on my walk home from school. Dangerous territory especially with ice cream being my favourite type of food ha. The flavours were Hazelnut (which is amazing), strawberry and some weird chocolate thing, I didn't like it.
(I went for sushi! Yes here in Italy I am eating sushi, and it tastes a lot better than it does in England. It was also all you can eat. I made the mistake of having that gelato pictured above before going for sushi haha.)
(Midnight gelato selfie! I finally found mango!)
