2020 was supposed to be my year of travel and concerts. I booked a trip to Manchester and Paris, and had to cancel both at a moments notice. I was most disappointed about the Paris trip because I’ve fantasized about going there since I was a little girl. I had everything ready to go, and then the virus got worse and I had to book a trip home instead. Although I was upset about it for a short while after, I began using this time to get excited about all of the travels I want to take when airports open again. Here are some places on my wishlist that I’m headed to (I HAVE to!!) as soon as I can.
Milano is one of the most magical places I’ve ever been to (especially during the holiday season). For as long as I could remember, I’ve dreamed of going to Italy and eating my favorite foods, drinking wine, and shopping. Sadly I only had a weekend to do all of that, but it was one of the best weekends of my life. A friend of mine was living there for a few months, so I bought a plane ticket, planned my trip, and left London on Black Friday weekend.
Everything just seemed oddly familiar to me, like I’d visited before. It was exactly what I thought it would be like, yet nothing like what I thought at the same time. But I must say, the food was EXACTLY what I thought it would be like. Fresh, flavorful and to DIE for. Best pasta and bruschette I’ve ever had.
There was so much culture and history everywhere that I went, and I could just feel it there. Everything was so beautiful and it sometimes felt like I stepped back in time.
It’s definitely a place I want to visit again in the future, and hopefully you and I both will get the change to tour the rest of Italy! And of course, eat all the food.
