About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

Ciao Italia - Holiday Post #9 - Italy Post # 1

Wow!  We have finally made it out of Singapore and are now in Italy as I still bore entertain you with out overseas trip.  Here we go....

On our way to Como, we had a very quick stopover in Milan (just one night).

We had a very quirky hotel.  This is the corridor to our room:



Our Milan room.

The view from our room - yes, we are in Italy!




Lovely decor in the lobby.


The courtyard.


The streets of Milan:







Milan Centrale Railway Station where we caught our train to our next stop - Como.








Beautiful station, isn't it?  We didn't see much of Milan but what I did see I liked.  Also, it reminded me a bit of Melbourne as we could hear trams from our hotel room.  Ahh, the sounds of home!

hugs,
