Paint your faith

leave a comment »

My trip Milan landed me to a small yet beautiful church called Chiesa di San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore, located at Corso Magenta 15. It was on number #1 of my to do list in Milan. But I went there the second day. I am so thankful, I made the time to go there. The small church was filled with paintings of faith.


Some of my favourites were the beheaded of Paul, the first sin, and Noah. I also took a replica of the last supper since I couldnot get the ticket to see the original painting.

Shopping in Milan, Italy

leave a comment »

If money could buy happiness, I bet Milan is the best place to go. 😉 ❤

Before I flew to Milan, I followed the unwritten rules to contact all my italian friends to “hand-wave” them that I am going there. Interestingly, both said they had never spent time in Milan to be able to give any recommendation for me. In fact, one of them actually said that I wont like the city, that it’s different than any other city in Italy, so.. and so… Made me even more curious.

Ostello Bello Grande, Milan

One word. Fantastic.

 

My trip to Milan is special because I have not been travelling alone for so long. In fact, I could not even remember the last time I travelled alone. So, to lessen my worry, I asked for a hostel recommendation from my friend. And she said that choosing Ostello Bello Grande would never go wrong. And I prove it. Located in Via Roberto Lepetit, 33, 20124 Milano, Italy, this hostel is just 5min walk airport shuttle terminal. It’s also 7min walk from Milan Central Station.


I arrived last night around 1AM. 24h reception welcomed me with a smile and welcome drink. I checked in to a 5-bed-mixed dormitary room which was occupied with me and one guy. Milan was so warm that night but luckily the room has an AC. I slept soundly immediately. Woke up and took a shower, I realised a girl came last night (morning?). I didnot hear her. Thanks for being quiet, good hostel manner.

Previous days are here and here.

Day 6: Bergen-Ålesund
We woke up like a new born person. It felt like a year ago since we had a good nice comfortable sleep. With a fresh mind, I remembered that I had a friend living in Bergen. So, we contacted her and she welcomed us with a warm Indonesian brunch. Yummm!

After brunch with Rusminah and baby Nico, we continued our journey to Ålesund. The journey to Ålesund was simply breathtaking. We took 2 ferry rides to go there, Ferry in Lavik for 167 NOK and Ferry in Solavågen for 155 NOK. They were all quite short trips, for 15 minutes only.

Day 4: Odda-Tyssedal-Trolltunga
We woke up really early. I had to take my multivitamins and mineral every night to get my body on shape for this trip. We arrived around around 9am, paid the parking fee for 200 NOK and started hiking in Trolltunga at 10am. The return hike trip was predicted to be around 10-12 h. And we had 12h or maybe 12.5h. We got back down around 9pm. It was CRAZY!
