Milan 2018

Escaping daily life is not the worst choice to choose! Especially to Italy!

Tired of meetings, decisions, plans and the daily routine I headed for Milan! Unlikely I visited Milan with the extended family on holidays, but nethertheless I had four sunny days (30 Min of rain) strolling through this lovely place. Enlightened by the general style, love for details and especially espresso!!!
