If you've ever needed inspiration that you can manifest you thoughts into actions, this is it! I saw the majestic Duomo di Milano Cathedral and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele with my own eyes and it was everything I expected and more.
I spent a lot of my childhood in the library. Most days, I often found myself lost in books about fashion design. Some days, I browsed through books about Paris, Italy, Egypt. I learned at an early age that there's a whole world out there that looks nothing like the one I know.
10 years later, we're standing at the Duomo! I can't help but think, if there's a perfect time for me to wake up from this dream it would be now!

In early April, Judith and I talked about going back to Europe. I was a bit reluctant because I still have post traumatic stress from the previous Europe trip. However, we continued to toss the idea around for a few days with no decision on the horizon that we're actually going. One day, she calls and says "I'm booking my flight dude, I hope you're coming".
Of course I had to go, #CDsisters can't be without both parties there!
As our summer plans were quickly unfolding, I couldn't help but think how left out our brother would be. Moreover, May is his birthday month so it would only be right if we grandfathered him into our plans.
In a blink of an eye, we were all meeting each other at the London Heathrow airport customs line. We spent the night in London and the next day we were off to Milan. We arrived in Milan late in the evening, it was cold and pouring, the kind of rain that makes you want to crawl in bed and never leave. The weather also projected that it would rain the entire time we were there, but I wasn't planning on letting that keep us inside.
Vittorio Emanuele II
After a late morning, I put on my rain proof Stories jumpsuit, and we were out the door. Getting directions to the Duomo was nearly impossible, because everyone in Italy only speaks Italian! Eventually, we made it to the Davinci Museum, Duomo, and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle. We did all the tourist things, like get gelato from the Amorino inside the Galleria. We stopped at the McDonalds across the Duomo which has a whole cafe inside with croissants and chai. Ultimately, we enjoyed our time in Milan!
