So it IS official

We will be coming BACK to Italy after the Christmas break!!! I know some of you think we've already moved to Abu Dhabi but I can assure you that we haven't. I'm currently looking out the window, not at sand and sea, but at a very thick dense fog that has settled on Basiglio and doesn't appear to be going anywhere anytime soon!!
So all of my carefully arranged plans have changed, but that's ok, I like planning so I'm just making new ones(how very Zen of me)

Yup we're still here!!!

We are still in Italy, but its not long now before we'll be out of this lovely country. I'm sad to leave it, but excited about the next phase of our adventure.
The plan was to go from Canada(where we're heading for Christmas) to Abu Dhabi but now we've had word that the plan might be changing, so we *might* go straight to Abu Dhabi, or Reese and I might stay in Canada for an extra month, or we might come back to Italy until we mobilize to the middle east.
I'm voting for option #1 but I'm not really sure anyone cares what I think!!!!!!

So we're still in a kind of limbo, not really knowing what the heck is going on, which SERIOUSLY offends my OCD tendencies.

Columbus Bar and Grill- my new favourite place!!!

So we had the BEST brunch EVER at this restaurant on Sunday. You arrive and there is a bouncer outside with the little earpiece in and all to make sure you understand that it is 22 Euros per adult for the buffet. Then we were ushered into the restaurant where EVERYONE said Buon Giorno as we passed and smiled. Its decorated like an old school diner in the states but much more funky and modern. The buffet was AMAZING. Seriously I didn't want to stop eating but my waistline reminded me that I did!!!!!
The coffee was good, they had real Canadian maple syrup to go on the pancakes, we were in heaven!
I would HIGHLY recommend this place for Sunday brunch in Milan, it opens at noon.
Via Milano 1/Bis
Peschiera Borromeo

Seriously you won't be disappointed!!!!!!!!!

About Me

My photo
Milan, Italy
I am 34 years old, married to my wonderful husband Richard and mother to a beautiful 8 year old daughter named Reese. We lived in the suburbs of Calgary until January 2010 where I worked as an ER Nurse. Then my husband was transferred to Vancouver for a 6 month temporary project. Our blog Tripping over the Sidewalk told all about our adventure living on the 30th floor of an apartment building in the middle of downtown Vancouver. Then we moved to Milan, Italy for 18 months, Ciao-Eh was the online forum for our Italian adventures. We moved to Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates in January 2012 and lived there for two and a half years. Sandscrapers, Souks and Sand is the blog of our adventures in the Middle East! We are now happy to be back on a little acreage just outside of Calgary where I'm sure more adventures await!!!!
