At this point my Mum and split up - she went home and I continued with my journey. I had opted to travel around Europe by train using a Eurail pass. It is an extremely convenient method of travel around this very well connected continent. I have to admit I was now starting to get nervous about the prospect of travelling alone. I was so nervous that …
... So I glanced down. Good grief! My legs were simply covered in the stuff. It seemed that every hair had its bit of gloop stuck to it. Not pleasant. Tonight I am staying at an Abbey with another pilgrim. This one is Italian, speaks as much English as I do Italian. We had a quiet dinner together. But there is wifi. So I have finally managed to publish the notes I have been writing over the last few days. Sorry about the ...
We woke up and walked down the street to have a pastry and coffee before leaving for the airport. We are looking forward to the Rick Steve's tour portion of the vacation. Flew to Rome and transferred to a flight to Milan. We made a quick visit to the Duomo (inside and top) and the nearby 1870's shopping galleria. We arrived during Milan's "Fashion Week". We saw red carpets at ...
... that look like clear bed pans containing the local lager.......it causes much mirth to the locals and even the passing policemen stopped their cars to laugh at the British idiots. We sit there and try to consume it quicky so we can hide the offending articles...after that display we head back to the hotel.
It's the usual continental Breakfast which as usual makes no sense to us, so we consume what we recognise as vaguely familiar. The the usual thing ...
... by bus to pick up the x-ray disc. This was surprisingly easy. There seem to be no counters beyond the front entrance to the hospital, so one just wanders around and grabs anyone with an ID badge and gabble about Mio Madre and her broken arm and wave the paperwork. Eventually somebody went and got somebody who went and got somebody else and they disappeared for a while and bought the disc. An interesting experience.

Historical Traveler Reviews Antares Hotel Rubens Milan
Good Hotel, Not 4 Star
Stayed for a long weekend, got a rate of 99 Euros a night for a double room, which I think is good for Milan. Service good but hotel is not a 4 star despite being rated as such. Rooms are on the small side, freshly decorated, breakfast was adequate but have had better in some 2 star hotels. Price for room service meal (pasta) 8 Euros incl. service was fair. Location is 5 mins from nearest metro and directly on bus and tram line.
The Antares Hotel Rubens is an excellent example of a first class 4 star hotel in Milan. I stayed there for a weekend whilst visiting Milan for a football match involving the pride of Milan AC Football Club.
A great weekend break
Well situated, just near Gambara metro stop on the red line, west of the City, and a short walk to De Angeli with many great shops/boutiques, the Rubens offered a great weekend break in November.
A metro or 24 tram will take you into Duomo Square. Hotel very pleasant - good rooms, helpful staff, breakfast vg. Well appointed rooms and bathrooms with hair dryer, good powerful shower, loo and bidet.
