Today I have been sleeping the whole day after landing back into Dubai this morning. I woke up after 5 hours of sleep, thinking that I wanted to do something productive this Saturday. But before even realizing I fell asleep again and didn't wake up until 7PM. I landed in Italy on thursday night, and my friday was spent in beautiful Milan. I woke up early to go for breakfast and I had decided to go to the city centre with some of the crew later. I think we were in the city already at 11AM, and we just walked around in the streets for about two hours before we decided to go for lunch. The sun was shining and it felt like it was still summer even though it's already the end of september.
I had a conversation with two of our passengers on the flight to Milan, and they recommended me this lunch spot located at the rooftop of a department store right next to the Duomo Cathedral, so we decided to check it out. It reminded me a lot about a place in Oslo which is also located at the rooftop of a department store, and it's just the kind of place where I like to hang out, so I was very happy that these guys that I spoke with on board gave me their reccomendations. I always like to find new places where there's not too many tourists or too crowded, so this place was just perfect and had a nice view as well.
I'm happy that the crew that I went together with also just wanted to enjoy and relax instead of running around and stressing, so we stayed for a while at the rooftop. At one point the sun was getting so strong that we even considered if we had to move over to a table under the shade. But all in all it was really nice ☀️
After lunch we decided to split up because we wanted to have a look around to see if we could do some good shopping. I decided a meeting point with one of the girls so that we could go together back to the hotel, so I met up with her again about an hour later. I didn't find anything, so no shopping this time. But after all I think that's a good thing for my bank account. I always do shopping on layovers, so it doesn't hurt to go back with an empty suitcase some times.
Tomorrow I'm off work, but in the upcoming week I'm up for a 5 days trip to Asia and Australia. Even though it can be exhausting and tiring with such long trips, I'm also very excited because it's my absolute favorite multisector. After that flight we're already in October, and it's just crazy to think about how time passes so quickly.
