I am now insisting that we come back in Autumn one year so we can gorge on fresh porcini!
By this stage, of course, we were absolutely full but Alessandro would not hear of ...
... Zurich; 1 hour Zurich to Milano. And what a series of airports it is, Sydney, Singapore and Zurich all have multiple screenings and check points, with Francesco half undressing each time to remove his belt, keys, wallet, boots, etc etc and me removing laptops and liquids from the carry on... and then we arrive at Milano.
