Since after the Expo Milan has been in full bloom! The city looks spectacular: lots of renovation and works to improve the city, new restaurants and bars openining up at every corner, new shops as well as new museums and new exhibitions spaces to visit!

2 Rooftop bars I recently tried in Zurich…and they’re worth it! // 2 rooftop bars che valgono la pena a Zurigo!

It’s been a while I know, but with this changing weather, cold and even snowy a few weeks ago to make you unwell and then such beautiful sunny days that really push you to enjoy life outside in the open air, and of course a bunch of other stuff… well time flies! As what it concerns going out, I’ve done a bit of this lately, I have two rooftop bars to suggest in Zurich. Yes, rooftop bars are a thing also in Zurich and I’d say a reasonably big thing 🙂 If you want a classy, trendy place with an indoor and outdoor, to enjoy a great drink either with or without alcohol, do a bit of people watching (if you are into that kind of things), just relax, chill out, especially when the sun is out to finish well the day, watching the sunset with a view on the city.

Milano, la capitale del business, della moda e anche del design d’Italia. Milano, una città di lavoratori, dove la professionalità è altissima, dove non c’è mai tempo e dove il lavoro, purtroppo o per fortuna, riveste un’importanza esagerata. Una città dove tutti sono indaffarati, dove le persone corrono da un posto all’altro. Dal lavoro all’aperitivo, alla cena, al dopo cena, dove non c’è un minuto da perdere, anche quando ci si diverte. L’ “agenda” fitta ed organizzata del lavoro si riflette anche nella vita privata e sociale. E così si corre, corre, corre… per vedere l’Ale, l’Andre, la Francie, la Maggie, ecc… tutti i nomi rigorosamente con l’articolo davanti, come è usanza qui e da un ritrovo all’altro. E per uscire bisogna organizzare con almeno una settimana di anticipo. Se la confrontassi con Madrid, una città attiva tutti i giorni della settimana a tutte le ore del giorno e della notte, direi che Milano, almeno in questi ultimi anni, è principalmente attiva dal mercoledì sera in avanti con punte il giovedì sera e durante il …

And it’s true, you can experience good food, also being Italian, and sometimes it seems to be eating in Italy. the prices though are extremely high. So here on one side are the 5-food trends, that may aswell contribute to keep up a VIP bills or not, and some tips from an article of The Age on how to eat out at reasonable prices. 5-food trends that will come to Melbourne from the US 1. Standing room only, eating standing up, without seating, I guess the Italian Aperitivo is still quite unfamiliar in Melbourne. You can find it at Eataly, outside Italy, in NYC for example. http://eatalyny.com/ 2. The virtual maitre d’, quite strange thing that to my opinion makes no sense, it’s either the real one or nothing. 3. Food camps, is this a way to feel close to the people who really live in these conditions, by spending less …
