Flag of Italy  , Lombardy,
Sunday, November 18, 2007

When I touched down in Milan, Italy last night, it was already 2130 (local time).
We took the shuttle bus to reach Milano Centrale, and hoping could catch the last train back to Terno (a small town in Bergamo). Unfortunately, we were 15 mins late when we arrived Milano Centrale.

Without a choice, instead of staying in the hotel in Milan (which will costs us €120 at least), we decided to grab a cab went back to Terno, and it ended up costed us €90 with 45 mins drive.

Apart from all those unluckiness, I still manage to wake up early and want to grab a seen of Milan quickly. We were taking a train to Milano Centrale, and transitted with Metro (whatever you called - LRT, MRT or Tube) to Duomo station, where it was the most attracted place in Milan.

I still freshy remember the first step when I walked up from the Metro station. I'd seen the Duomo in real (for the past, it was only in pictures or photos) and it was only less than 1km in front of me. My mouth remained "WoW", where I hardly to shut it down... It was such a great architecture and HUGE building I'd ever seen in the past.

After taking tons of photos in front of the Duomo, we were having a casual walk around the shopping areas. Oh... forgot to mention that I'd forgotten to bring over my jacket/sweater to Italy (what's a good memory, huh!). Left it at home before depart to the airport. As the matter of fact, we quickly grab a chance to find a good jacket, it costed me (actually my bf) €99 to buy a piece in Promod, Milan. (See what I was wearing in the photos.)

We have had a great experiences sit at the cozt restaurant in Milan. Though expensive, cost us €80 per bill for 2 pax for just the first course plus a drink (You could get €9.90 per set meal per pax at most common place, usually.), but it was tasteful and romantic....... :)

I didn't do much shopping, as I am not a slave for branded goods.
I rather pay more for foods and accomodation............. :p
