Sooo, I earned about 7 hours yesterday by jumping time zones. I’m in Milan, Italy! Well to be exact it’s a town near Milan, a very quiet place with nothing spectacular to speak of. I went for a quick run this morning and found out that I really should find a park nearby. It’s a pretty neighbourhood. My 184 days here won’t be too melancholy.

On the flight, I managed to do a couple things I’ve been meaning to do for some time. One is reading: with prepping and meeting up with people before leaving, I couldn’t quite have some time to read just to enjoy it. Andy Weir’s The Martian is so full of humour! I honestly cannot follow all the technological things that Mark does to survive on Mars, but I surely enjoy his narrative, chuckling from time to time.

The other was filling in my journal – I was a few days behind. Despite the fact that I have been quite active on WP, sharing and writing about my life and thoughts, it was still extremely difficult to remember, for example, what I had for lunch and what I felt like on a certain date. I’ll try and dedicate 10 minutes every single day before bed to think and remember what happened throughout the day – it’s such a shame that I don’t get to remember many of what happened. I wish I’ll be able to go, ‘oh yes now I remember, it definitely was pleasant to do this and that!

All in all, it was a pleasant and fruitful flight. The problem comes after the flight.

The connection to internet around here is way too bad. I get almost no signal inside my room. So I couldn’t possibly read my feed on WordPress even though I wanted to! I’m really curious about what the writers I follow managed to write about for the last couple days. Hopefully the landlord can do something about it so that I won’t have to ditch my laptop and my WordPress page.

    1. I’m volunteering at the Universal Expo in Milan this year! For the whole 6 months too – it definitely is something new for me. I’m pretty excited about what’s to come! Have you been to one?

      1. I’ve honestly never heard of it, haha. It sounds interesting though, to be in Milan for 6 months as a volunteer! What exactly are you going to do there?

      2. They’re huge expositions taking place every 5 years. I’ve never been to one either to be honest. I’ll be supporting the general operation of one pavilion and do some PR works 🙂

      3. Wow that’ll be such a sweet topic to blog about! Hope to see some of your activities there on your blog 🙂

  1. It’s great that one is able to catch up with some things while flying. I always do the same, all the stuff I’m kind of not able to do while being at home – reading for example. I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy your time near Milan! 🙂
