Let me officially say to my readers, Happy New Year! If you follow my social media pages, you would probably notice a lot has been going on with me. I recently graduated, and my mind has been running on so many things all at once. The reality of job hunting is so surreal, trying to juggle between interviews and carrying on necessary daily activities.
The year has been so busy for me, I know right – already?
It’s better late than never they say, so I will be giving you my usual suggestions of what to do in Milan, for this January.

The terraces of the Milan Cathedral, the historic tram, the Vittorio Emanuele Gallery are the background to sentimental and family affairs, to fantastic stories, to memorable gags like those of Totò, Peppino and malafemmina, entered rightfully in the history of cinema.
