Lake Como and Fox Town

On Sunday the plan was to visit lake Como and having woken up early in the morning we made our way to the Stazione Centrale to get a train to Como. Milan’s Central station is Italy’s second-largest station and it’s a place where you feel the rush of movement, people coming and going to all different directions, a bustling destination that brings out an excitement making you want to catch the next train and head off to various cities and embark on an exciting journey, a destination unknown. As I sat in the train I began to visualize a train journey around Italy, and the more I thought about it, I welcomed this idea for my future travels. Having recently read Aleph by Paulo Coelho, perhaps triggered this interest to explore a journey on a train in search of the unknown, of the past and the present moment. It was a glorious day in Como and after having enjoyed a couple of hours wondering around and enjoying  the magnificent scenery, the addictions of a shopaholic kicked in again and it was time to cross the border to Switzerland and visit a place called Fox Town in Mendrisio for a few hours of shopping. This was the last day of the trip and the following day we headed back to Athens. In the next post I will be sharing some photos of Milan’s street fashion which was not that easy to take. Until then, enjoy. xoxo ES
