Sarah and I closed out our multi-week, multi-destination European trip in Milano. On our last night, we sipped cocktails at a rooftop bar called Il Bar, nested at the top of the Milan’s main department store, Rinascente. We decided that Milan would be the perfect place for us to end our trip, since it was the place that we started our trip together (and mainly because we could also hop on the direct Emirates flight from Malpensa to JFK). After cocktails and aperitifs at Il Bar, we celebrated the end to an adventure-filled few weeks with one final dinner together at the Armani Ristorante in the Armani Hotel.
To recap, we stayed at Lake Como where I wrote: Post-Office Girl, Checking-In from Lake Como, Bellagio, and Comotose. We then explored Northern Italy’s wine country where I wrote: Beauty and the Beast, La Dolce Vita, Checking-In from Guarene, Sweet like Cinnamon, In the Mind of Dali, and Checking-In from Barolo. After Italy, we decided to venture to Monaco for a few days of fun in Monte Carlo where I wrote: L'été Sur la Mer and Wabi-Sabi. Post-Monaco, we headed next door to chic neighbor France and explored the communes of Èze, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, and Antibes where I wrote: Coco in Wonderland, Perdue dans un rêve en Cap-Ferrat, Checking-In from Antibes, and Antibes Diaries.
I really don’t think summer is the same without holidaying for at least a month in Europe and it’s made even better when you get the company of some of your closest copains! My final post from Europe is coming up soon and it’s one of the most magical shoots I have ever done.
