Sorry for posting a German picture but I discovered an amusing picture in a German magazine! It says: “If closeness then in a right way! Say I love you to your Mum and tell your brother how annoying he is!” I still love mine though 🙂
In the last past days I spent my time clearing out my wardrobe. So if you are looking for some stuff, cheap and nice, have a look here. Keep on looking because in the next few days and weeks I will add more stuff. I just need to get in the basement. There are several boxes full off stuff waiting for you.
Ladies and gentleman,
I am finally on German ground. I arrived quite late tuesday evening with around (felt) 40 kg of luggage. Sitting in the airport shuttle I felt quite melancholic. Leaving this nice city while the sun was shining low at old churches and buildings was not as easy as I thought it would be. After that travel I just wanted to sleep and refill my batteries. Here the weather is really bad but it is the perfect weather to stay on the couch, watch movies and drink tea. That is exactly my intention for the last days before christmas. I did some serious shopping to get all my christmas presents from my to do list. Now I´m done and giving other people presents is at least as much fun as getting some yourself. Next week will consist of a meeting with my hairdresser, meeting friends, wrapping up the presents in fancy paper and so on. The usual christmas preparations.
I wish you all a very nice weekend and make the best of it.
Sorry for the bad updates recently. I have been quite busy here in the last weeks and days before christmas.
Today I stopped by at the small christmas market at the central station. I missed the smell of Glühwein. Instead you could see, taste and smell all sorts of cheese and prosciutto. I guess that is the Italian way to arrange christmas markets. Also nice but I did not get the christmas feeling I was looking for. I guess I will find that feeling sitting on my Mum´s couch, drinking hot chocolate and watching the typical movie for christmas “3 Nüsse für Aschenbrödel”. Until then I really have to study day and night. But I will also enjoy my last days here. Tomorrow I will go to a very nice exhibition and do some shopping. Then there is a christmas party tomorrow evening and on saturday I will have aperitivo. So a lot to do, not to mention the hard work I will have while packing my suitcase and all the stuff that accumulates itself in a few months.
Here are a few pictures of the christmas market for you. Enjoy!
Sorry for the absence lately. Pre-christmas stress and visits kept me occupied for the last 1,5 weeks. I just brought my Mum and my brother to the central station where they took the bus to the airport. We had an amazing weekend together and did all touristic stuff that I wouldn´t have done alone. Most of the time we were walking around the city. On friday we had Aperitivo at my favorite bar here. On saturday we went on the rooftop of the Duomo. The weather was amazing saturday and sunday so we had a good view over the city. We also went inside the Duomo of course. We did some shopping for christmas, had a walk in one of the parks, were visiting an antique market, went to the museum of modern art and had very good pizza. All in all a very nice and diverse weekend. In my opinion perfect (of course because I planned it 😉 ) to get to know Milan in one weekend.
Now I can and have to concentrate on my exams and I also have to take care of an application for a master programme for next year. Besides I also want to do some stuff here because now that time is short you think about the things you want to do before christmas. A concert, a visit at a famous museum and some christmas shopping is on top of my list.
I wish you a very nice week and enjoy the pleasant anticipation of christmas, for me that is always the best.
Here are some pictures from our weekend:
