This month I was blessed with what is probably the most coveted flight in our network for crew to operate. For 1.5 years I've been bidding , and finally I scored the 4 day Milan. The flight over was heaven - 26 passengers on 42 seats, all other classes were chock-a-block. It is hard work, don't get me wrong, we had 2 services to do in 5.5 hours. But the cool crew and lovely passengers were a perfect start to things.
So what do you do with a 4 day Milan layover? Get out of Milan of course! I also bid for Venezia this month, but didn't get the flight, so I had to go during my stay.
The first thing we saw when we left the train station
The St. Maria in Nazaret
The perfect day to go on a gondola...
A lot of people and not a lot of space
The stunning Basilica at the Piazza St. Marco
Only in Italy are the churches this gorgeous and well-decorated
A very crowded Piazza St Marco
You can't go to Venezia and not ride a gondola. From left, Karmela, me, Yasmin, Paul, Abigail (Philipines) and Vanesa
Where Marco Polo used to live, now an old opera house
Our driver, and in the background is the place (I think it's a prison but I'm not entirely sure) where Cassanova was held

So, next post should be Florence and Milan. Blogger decided to be a pain to me today, this post alone taking 5 hours to complete from all the uploading I had to do. Enjoy and take care...
