Unfortunately, our trip through Northern Italy was almost at an end =( However, we got to end it with two days of sightseeing and of coruse, SHOPPING, in Milano! Like I mentioned in one of my previous posts, the amazing thing about Italy is that every city is completely different than the previous one. In addition to some quick exploring and sightseeing, we met up with my good friend Stefano T!

If you’ve heard me recount tales of my semester abroad, a name you may remember is Stefano, the craziest Italian of them all! He’s hilarious, an amazing chef (his pizza and coffee is to die for!), an incredibly good host, and just a total riot to hang out with! He’s also completely insane, but in a good way =D
In this portion of the trip, we explored the Emilia-Romagna region in Northern Italy! We met up with Andrea (a friend from when I studied abroad in Denmark) and his brother, and they took us on a gorgeous hike in the mountains!
Historical charm, delicious food, amazing architecture, and good company – who could ask for more?

This is my new favorite quote: “L’amicizia si misura in metri di pizza” – friendship is measured in meters of pizza!
