This was week 3 in Milan! We had 3 weeks of intensive Italian and finished with a final exam. We ended up walking around after our exam and ended up at Palace Sforzesco which was a pleasant surprise. This place had been on my list to visit but I never knew how close it was. We walked from the Cadorna station and it only took about 10 minutes. It was such a beautiful day and there were not as many tourists so we were able to explore and take lots of pictures. I think one of my favorite things about Milan is that its a big but also pretty small city. I could walk around without a clear direction and somehow end up by the Duomo or to an area that I know. No matter how many times I go, I never get sick of how pretty Duomo is.
That weekend, my rooomates and I traveled to Zurich for a weekend trip. Surprisingly, I was pretty exhausted from all the traveling and decided going by bus would be less tiring on my body. We took Flixbus which was SUPER convenient and so much more reliable than the buses in the U.S. Zurich was definitely an expensive but beautiful city and makes me even more thankful that I was able to go (I never thought of visiting Zurich). The best part was definitely the raclette and fondue we had. It was so super fun to actually make the raclette ourselves and then fry our meats into the fondue. We were so hungry we even ordered an extra cheese fondue afterwards. Overall, Zurich was 7/10!
