Milan and Lake Como!

It has been way to long since I updated my blog... sorry guys I've been pretty busy! So on the 25 of February I went to Milan Italy to visit Katie and it was so amazing. I took about 250 photos so its hard to decide which one is the best. I guess I'll just put a few up and tell you about my weekend.
The first thing I saw when I stepped out of the metro line was the amazing Duomo. I couldn't believe it was just right there in front of me. It took me completely by surprise. Its crazy to see something so incredible in pictures over and over again then be standing right there in front of it.

So after hanging out at the Duomo for a while Katie came and got me and we had a relaxed night with some awesome Italian pizza. Seriously the crazy American version of pizza is a disgrace comparatively.

The next day she showed me were she goes to school and it is so beautiful! the campus was really really cool; I just love all of the old buildings and awesome architecture.

That night we went out to an awesome club. Everyone stayed there till like six thirty in the morning but in order to do that you had to be at least a little drunk. Needless to say Katie and I called it a night a little early, so we were back by 4.

Next on the to-do's was the Saturday market! it was so great! I was going to allow myself to spend money in Milan because of course its the fashion capital of the world but thanks to the awesome market I came away with tons of stuff and didn't spend the money I was going to allow myself to spend. Plus I think we had way more fun here than we would have at the shopping near the Duomo. My loot was good but I am still jealous of Katie's 3 euro boots...what a steal!

After bring all of your stuff home we went back to the Duomo because they were celebrating Carnival and I just had to get a carnival mask.... Mine aren't as cool as Katie's from Venice but I like them and like her I walked away with two! Haha

The next day was Sunday, my last day, so we decided to go see Italy in a different light than fashion and industry that Milan has become. Lake Como was beautiful but it was foggy and rainy so the pictures really don't do it justice. We had so much fun there, taking crazy pictures, eating alcohol soaked candies(oops), riding the ferry, trespassing on private property, and exploring what seemed to be a ghost town.

I am sad to leave Milan because it was really amazing. In just four days though Ben will be here and I will have another adventure through Austria, Germany, Denmark to report on! I can't wait!!!
