I spent a few days in Milan to ring in the 29th birthday. I'll have to admit it wasn't what I expected but I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed my time there. The historic mixed with the modern, the food, the wine, the gelato, and of course the sights. Como, Lake Como, and Bellagio were by far my favorite parts of the trip. The air was refreshing, the views, breathtaking, and the quaint lake towns were fascinating. Viva Italia!
