City break with a difference ..

Every year around this time I would now be preparing for my long weekend in Milan, Italy. This has been arranged on this upcoming weekend for the last five years to pre-empt my trip to New York for the US Open Tennis. Unfortunately we will not be covering the event this year so it's left me free to go at a slightly later date - when the summer holidays are over and all the shops and restaurants will be open.

Right - Hands Sculpture, Como

Bearing in mind my pal and I have been doing this trip for a number of years, we know Milan quite well so have decided to break it up a bit and throw in a trip to Lake Como en route. That way we still get to spend a day shopping in the City but with the added benefit of enjoying the tranquility on the lake. Como is only one hour away by train. 

I am very excited to include this stop over in my plans this time - I have been there before and love it!

I have another entirely new destination to tell you about too in October but I'll keep shtum on that for now!
