We had a relatively quiet start to this morning as our walking tour did not start until 10.30. This gave us time to shower, pack, breakfast, vibes mums ( mum S was not answering) and Bethany. It is lovely to hear some news from home. We arrived punctually as that's how we roll and the guide did not turn up. A few others were there waiting as well.

Our second day was a complete contrast to our first. My friend Jo had given us a suggested walking itinerary for Milan (thanks Jo!!!!!), complete with recommendations for gelato and aperitivo places.
