Ciao a tutti!!
Hello! This is my first blog entry, I am so excited to share with you what we’ve all been up to in Milano! A lot of things went on, like applying for PDS and the Codice Fiscale, and starting Italian courses, but here are some highlights from our adventures in Italia!
On our first day in this new place, we went on a tour of the city with Professor Feuerherm. We were introduce to the Milanese breakfast of champions: Brioche e Cappuccino (it’s to die for by the way, no matter where you go!) After we fueled up for the day, we headed to a knitwear exhibition by The Woolmark Company, here were my two favorite looks:
Of course, you can’t be in Milano and not talk about fashion. Luckily enough we were in town for Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out (FNO). It’s where the shopping centers, designers, and boutiques come alive for the kick off of the Spring/Summer shows before they start in New York. Well, in Milan there was a lot of happenings to explore!
After these festivities we started our Italian language courses at Politecnico di Milano. We basically have to take Italian II in a matter of a couple weeks. In between the stress of class, finding an apartment and adjusting to a new city, we enjoyed our FITSA trips to Cinque Terre and Lago di Como. These places are so beautiful and amazing, I’m only going to post the photos because words aren’t enough!
Well, that’s all for now! I have a lot of pictures to share with everyone, but I think I’ll save them for a photo journal (which should happen in the next couple days). So enjoy these until then! Alla prossima! – Daniel
