Milano holds a special place in my heart since I spent first grade as a milanese.
My father was the first major leaguer to play baseball overseas in Europe. I never thought about it before but he is quite the pioneer. I remember two italians flying all the way from Italy just to get my dad to sign. Together, him and my mom have taught me that you do not need to follow a normal path for your life – just to pursue what you love. (: It is an important lesson!
So coming back to Milan was really amazing. Particularly, emerging from the metro to check out the duomo, where we walked to the top as kiddos – pretty fantastic for me. Then I could have passed out when we walked into la rinascente – truly the most beautiful shopping experience you will ever have. Next up, We had dinner at Charleston and you better believe we are still drooling over the meal!
