On Friday we drove back east, so we had the chance to enjoy the view, as the way from Milan to Bra on Tuesday, the day of our arrival, was pitch dark by the time we drove. As we approached Turin, the rural areas transformed to what the modern world looks like today: rapidly rebuilt areas, after the Second World War, with a city planning structure, protected by the Roman architectural mastery of the past.

Arriving at Milan Malpensa airport we spent some time walking along its corridors where several shops are offering "some Italian flair and food quality" in a rather clumsy way. The bus took us to Bra and as it was already getting dark we could hardly see any of the places on the way, so either we chatted or stayed lost in our thoughts. Will this experience affect and inspire us on our way back to the airport in a couple of days? The schedule is heavy and exciting: We are going to experience activities run in a location between the [...]
