So, here I am writing my first ever post! I am pretty excited as it has taken me a while to finally start this blog. I think I first mentioned the idea when I was in my last year at university. Β I have no real reason for having taken so long to finally get around to it, just pure procrastination, but all that doesn’t matter as I am here now. Β Β I am sure I have a lot to learn so I hope you will be patient with me but I am super excited to get going!

Obviously, January is the time for setting new years’ resolutions, but I’ve never been one for them anyway, so instead I want to lay out some of my hopes and aims for this year. I feel it is going to be a good one and this is a good starting point for my musings in Milan!

  • First things first, start my blog (so far so good!)
  • Get back to studying German, which up until the age of 18 I was pretty good at until I decided Italian was the way forward and more than neglected my German.
  • Do lots of yoga, which I only discovered I love just before Christmas!
  • Spend a week in Greece at a yoga retreat with my dear friend Grace and leave feeling fabulous
  • Make my way to the South of Italy – Sicily or Sardegna
  • Make the most of EXPO starting on 1st May in Milan and running all the way through to October 31st. Β Based around nurturing the planet and renewable energy resources, it is set to bring millions of visitors to Milan and offer up tons of exciting things to see and do.
  • Visit Sienna
  • Return to Modena where I lived on my Erasmus year for 6 months
  • Spend the summer in Essex with my family getting plenty of country air and going for long walks with our crazy Staffy Robbie.
  • Finally make it to Zurich to visit my friend who I haven’t seen in nearly three years
  • Have a father and daughter day in London at the Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon exhibition

I will be sure to keep you all updated on which of these I manage to achieve, I am hoping most of them, always optimistic!
