Hi Friends!

I know it’s the weekend and I never post on the weekend, but I just wanted to say a quick Merry Christmas to all of you who are celebrating. I hope you have a wonderful day! I’m currently in Milan with my dad and sister, and so far we’ve settled into our little apartment, taken a few walks around the area to get a sense of the surroundings, and enjoyed some delicious seafood – pictures to come in my big Italy recaps when I get home!

On the agenda for today is Christmas brunch and a walk around to explore the downtown area. Most places are closed today, but we figured we’d make our plan today so that we can squeeze in as many sights as possible during the week. Everyone has been really friendly so far, and very willing to speak to us, even with our very limited Italian skills!

I hope your day is filled with plenty of relaxation, happiness, celebration, laughs, and quality time spent with your friends and family.

Merry Christmas, or as they say here, Buon Natale!
