Back in the game!

Life is too short not to document it.

So here I am documenting our life of 3 again.

Travel: We spent 2 days in Milan and it was like a breath of fresh air because we escaped the routine of Monday. Luca is such a big boy now and he certainly wants us to know that. He is challenging everything, any limit, any statement that we run by him. How do they call this age? The terrible two’s? It is certainly terrible but equally beautiful and funny.

Music: And on a side note, I am still very much obsessed with La La Land and I am constantly listening to the soundtrack. Plus I am rediscovering Jazzzzz.

Book: Big little Lies because I started watching the series and I was dying to see what happened next.

Fashion: New colours of sneakers from Adidas. Love them.

Lifestyle: Moving in less than 3 weeks to the city with big hopes that it will be the last move for the next 5 years (we moved every 3 year in the last 10 years). Also stopped using the Facebook app on my phone. It has significantly reduced my time on the phone during the day. It makes such a difference, and I don’t miss it at all. I still get all my news and I still have Instagram, so I am still connected via social media.

And some photos from Milan.

Weekend away with a baby

We are back from our adventure in Milan with Luca. Normally I would not call a weekend away an adventure but when it is your first time away with your 15 weeks old then the term is just about right. We decided to drive since it was easier for us, Milan being fairly close to Zurich (normally a 3 to 4 hour drive).

We got there around 2 pm on Saturday. We chose a hotel in the city center since we wanted to be able to walk around without being too far from our room, just in case we needed to rush in. I totally recommend Ambasciatori Hotel. They had a crib for us that Luca liked, and even if our room was a standard one, it was spacious enough to fit luggage and stroller.

Luca was incredibly sweet since he enjoyed being in his stroller, slept, played and overall let us enjoy our time there. We shopped, ate out, had good coffee and gelato, all while having our little one with us.

After 2 days away (we got back on Monday) I am incredibly happy that we decided to do a trip with Luca at this age since it just proves me once again that if you step out of your comfort zone, you might be pleasantly surprised. Travelling with a baby is certainly different then when it was just me and my husband but it is equally fun and entertaining. Everyday we realised how blessed and proud we are to have such a sweet baby. And Italy was a good destinations since Italians are nice and seem to love babies. We even had a funny encounter in a store, when an older lady came to the stroller and asked to take a peek inside. She saw Luca and starting exclaiming how cute he is. Then she asked if he has blue eyes (he was sleeping). Traian said no at which point she exclaimed: He is still beautiful! :)) This would never happen in Zurich. It made our day…Also waiters and people in restaurants were very accommodating and helpful. So if you have doubts about travelling with kids, just go with it. Trust your instincts and your child.

And it would not be a trip to Italy without me not mentioning food. We had the best pizza this weekend at Gino Sorbillo. The place is amazing since they only use ingredients from farmers, so everything is fresh and locally supplied. They only make 400 pizzas a day so if you are lucky to get a table you are in for a treat (no reservations are made). We had the hotel next to the restaurant so when it opened on Sunday, we were the first there for lunch.

We also tried the rooftop bar and restaurant, Obicà Mozzarella Bar Milano from la Rinascente. Slow food, good wine and prosecco and a very nice view of the city.

We took Luca to the park, but he was not very impressed. He cried his lungs out before he went to sleep.


He actually enjoyed shopping and restaurants more. I am not at all surprised since he is my son.

And a selfie of the 3 of us in the elevator. For those of you that don’t know my husband, meet his signature selfie face. I think Luca is still trying to figure out what he is doing with us.
