i guess you could call this the italian philosophy. but we did nothing of the kind while vacationing in italy. well, at least not for the first week we were there. my guy and i took a real tour de force visiting some of the most amazing cities in italy. our tour began in milan, world’s fashion capital. we were only there for a day, but what a delightful day it was. went up on the dome and saw the city from above, visited the sforzesco castle and its gardens, stopped by for some amazing gelato (the apple falvour was my favorite) and strolled a bit along corso vittorio emanuele and gazed at the window displays. as we are mere mortals and cannot afford shopping chanel, prada or luis vuitton we settled for h&m and the likes and scored on some super sales. we had pizza for dinner and called it a night. the next day we would embark on new adventures.
