Finally it’s time for the conference of the year. I had been looking forward to coming to Como for a really long time. The place, the food and of course the people.
We decided pretty early that I and a few colleagues should bring our spouses and spend some time in Como before the conference. And so we did.
When we arrived the weather was really warm and sunny. Unfortunately the rain started pouring when we headed out for dinner. Pizzas were great anyhow.
Friday we went to Milano, again the rain started pouring when we came there and had just decided to eat. This time during lunch thou. I had a really nice Espresso after the lunch pasta so I was in a really good mood and didn’t mind any occasional raining. After that we headed down-town for some shopping. Short of time we didn’t find any good shopping and went back after a few hours of strolling about. We came to and left Milano by local train. This worked pretty good and took about 1h and 15min. This way we got to see some of the beautiful landscape.
Saturday we went across the border and into Switzerland for some really good shopping. We spent the whole day in a big shopping complex. Hugo Boss, Armani, Gucci, Lacoste … you name it. They had it.
