Viva l’Italia – Milano

Milan has a good location as a city; close to the Como Lake, Swiss border, to the sea, to the Alpes. It might not be the most beautiful Italian city but it has its charm.

I won’t be writing too much, but I would like to mention a couple of places to eat and buy some good stuff.

Places to eat:

  • Panarello – for the best cannoncini.
  • Gelateria Solferino – for the best ice creams in town. Make sure to try Fior di Latte flavour
  • Fatto-Bene – delicious burgers made from local products. I am not a big fan of red meat but this one was mouth-watering.

Places to shop:

  • Bivio – vintage store with designer brands.
  • Roberta Borse – for affordable real-leather handbags and wallets, made in italy :).

Enjoy the pictures.

Onward and upward,

Is Love indeed a many splendid thing?

funny-sheep-caption-what-is-love-song

Regardless of how you view two teenagers kissing or making out in the street you should be completely envious.

Many a psychologist believes what those two are experiencing is the purest form of love two ‘adults’ can ever experience.
The reason?
Neither brings any luggage.
Neither has an expectation as to what a relationship is meant to be for them. They’ve never had one. All that follows in subsequent relationships is how much baggage you choose to bring to the table. How hurt you were, how disappointed you were, or worse, how much you miss your previous partner and continue to make comparisons. Lets be honest it’s hard not to do, but looking at it objectively, completely unfair.

Love is a fab thing and to lose yourself to someone unconditionally is scary and exciting. Time and circumstances are the worst enemies of love between two people. It takes a special kinda people to resist the financial pressures and all the other crap that comes with modern life to stick together.

Kissing-Photos-For-February-Fever-02

Many now feel long term relationships are passe and not what humans are meant to aspire to. That’s way too much of a generalisation, as is, saying you should be together for ever…….What truly matters is love, and that lasts as long as it’s meant too. And that’s a blaise statement if ever there was one. Many people stay together for years but forget they love each other, it’s easily done. Yer both travelling down the same road yet somehow, somewhere along the way, you stopped holding hands.

Love is cool, it is lust, sex, being at one with someone…but it’s also staying with someone through a night of illness,or getting up with them at some ungodly hour to make breakfast for them before they go to work……..
Love is an amorphous thing constantly changing the goalposts, and that’s why it is indeed still a many splendid thing…….

If you are in Love right now, go kiss the person you’re with, just because….no other reason, other than you Love them………

Love is a many splendid thing………cherish it.

Choose yer words wisely,

 The stuff which we absolutely loved last week.

Abe & Ellum

  • The sunshine is here.
  • Phily is the US toen to be especially when you ve been invited.
  • Seeing a magpie within touching distance, so cool.
  • Riding a motorbike a hundred miles at half two in the morning, so warm/chilly,…fab.
  • Knowing shit happens but so does good stuff.

Tsaritsa Katarzyna

  • Passing out on the bed and waking up in the middle of the night.
  • Seeing friends and just talk about random, stupid stuff.
  • Italian cheese.
  • Mikado – the chocolate sticks in my mouth 🙂
  • Having a master plan.

Letting go

There is a notion called,’The killing of the death’…..

flat,550x550,075,f

If you can’t rid yourself of a memory, or, more likely, someone who has torn your heart out, the idea is, you take for example, a photograph, and burn it. While it burns you recall everything that’s tearing you apart and when the burning is done that memory goes with it…..forever.

It does work, I’ve done it.

let_go

Letting go is hard, very hard, and whoever says it isn’t is the very dickhead that causes the shit in the first place. We all go through crap at times, it is a part of life that is unavoidable, and, ironically, lets you know when you’re having good times.There has to be both.  Either continuously would be tedious on the one hand and fucking dull on the other.

My point is…….you may be standing on the quayside not wanting the ship to leave port, for whatever reason, but once it’s left the quay and out of sight, you can and should move on, there is always the opportunity to let go…always choose to let go my friend.

Choose yer words wisely,

Viva l’Italia – Como Lake

I could live and die in Como Lake. Absolutely gorgeous.

Green, lake, mountains, close to Swiss border, nice cafes, friendly local people – hmm I think I am in.

I recommend hiking to Volta Lighthouse and after that hiking down to the lake. I guarantee you won’t be able to walk afterwards because of the pain in your calves.

Anyway pictures will speak for themselves.
