September 2022

The Queen died earlier this month, which triggered memories of loved ones who died. This is why I’ve decided to stop posting until the funeral, on my blogs and on social media (with the exception of twitter which is entirely dedicated to fighting disinformation in the Russian invasion of Ukraine). My husband and I went […]


I will make a quick round-up of Milan, starting the places I already blogged about before sharing a few more pictures from the city. Science Museum Milan is a must see in Milan. I loved it, it is a fantastic place. Another must see is Castello Sforzesco, a very cheap ticket gives you access to […]

Duomo Monza

Autodromo Nazionale Monza

This week is the race at Monza, so I’ve decided to keep for now the pictures from our visit to the track from a couple of months ago. It was so exciting. We booked tickets for the guided tour and also for the track tour. The tour is about 60 minutes and the guide tells […]

Duomo Milan

Duomo Milan

Duomo Milan or Metropolitan Cathedral-Basilica of the Nativity of Saint Mary was gorgeous to see. I share a lot of pictures from our visit, including from the archaeological area and the rooftop. Enjoy!
