Before I left Italy in September, I made the quick trip from Alessandria to Milan for a day of (mainly) window shopping. I’d never visited before and as soon as I walked down to the underground I felt right at home. Maybe it was the strangers invading my personal space on the metro or the bustle of being in a place with more than 15 residents after spending the summer in a small village in Piemonte.
Walking around from store to store in Milan, I felt really at home. Some cities are just like that. Maybe because it was reminiscent of home, like a little London, but in one of my favourite countries. Of course we strolled through Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, dreamily eyeing up the Prada window-displays. One day I’ll be back to buy!
What city have you instantly felt at home in?
