We are still in Milano but tomorrow morning we will take the train to Paris, which is a comfortable way of travelling in Europe. From Milano through the Alps in 7 hours in Paris.
Yesterday evening diner was fun but I drank too much wine and had a little head ache this morning. Fortunate, no obligations for me but O. had to attend the annual meeting of her company. So we had breakfast and I eat a lot of Parma ham and cheese!
Late this afternoon we met shortly with a Turkish friend who is married to an Italian and bought our train ticket to Paris where we will stay for one night. It's O. her first visit to France so tomorrow night we will make an 'executive summary tour de Paris' since we will leave the next day for Amsterdam by Thalys.
In fact, this afternoon a meeting was planned for me with an Italian/American company but had to cancel because of a little food poisoning or disrupting of the stomach, but we will meet next week in Istanbul where an exhibition is planned by them together with a well known Istanbulian university.
I also therefore skipped the final diner of tonight. A dressed diner...after last night experience I prefer to have my food in my hotel room so that I will sleep at 11pm sharp. At 6am up and train will leave at 8am...
And no time for internet until Thursday afternoon when we will arrive in Amsterdam for a three day stay...with a trip to Brussels planned on Saturday.
Yep, it's fun travelling in Europe with so many cultures, languages and different foods.
