As we were soon to discover about the rest of Shanghai, the airport is huge and, in parts, still under construction.
John was particularly looking forward to visiting Shanghai, having being raised listening to his Dad’s stories of visiting China as a merchant seaman. There are many similarities between Liverpool and Shanghai, the most striking is the iconic waterfront building, The Three Graces, which was modelled on its older namesake adorning Liverpool’s UNESCO waterfront. Cyclists and motorcyclists seem to have right of way on the pavements around the city which is pretty dangerous by day, but takes on a whole new level of alertness on your part at night when they take to the pavement without any lights switched on. There is no shortage of different types of accommodation and it is easy to search for hotels online to fit any type of budget.
There has been a surprising lack of street vendors in our travels around Shanghai, we found a few dotted here and there but nothing like we are used to in other Chinese areas of Asian cities. The art is in the eating, you take a little nibble out of the side and then suck out the wondrous juices that have been cooking up inside. We also discovered a  wonderful eggy and onion breakfast pancake we think is called Jian Bing.
One of our stereotyped preconceived expectations was that people here would be a bit rude and a little offhand. If you sit down to have a fag, or stop to consult your map in any of the main tourist areas you will get some unwanted attention in Shanghai.  This comes in a number of forms. We were by People’s Square, which is one the places where you will find some street food vendors. From his relentless angry sign language, attempting to photograph the staff hiding under the counter to shouting threats of police involvement. So first impressions of Shanghai and China have been very favourable, with the night-time walk along the Bund on our first night the highlight so far.
We had heard from friends that Milan, Italy was less than stellar from a travel perspective; however, what we found while exploring the fashion capital of Europe was that it surprisingly has a lot more to offer for those willing to delve a bit deeper. Climbing up to the cathedral’s rooftop was one of the coolest things we did in Milan. Prior to arriving in Milan, we weren’t entirely sure what an Italian breakfast looked like so we did a bit of research and asked around. Something that surprised us about Milan is that there is a castle right in the middle of the city. If you’re looking to try a pasta dish unique to Milan than definitely consider Risotto alla Milanese. The Colonne di San Lorenzo are the remains of Roman ruins that date back to the 2nd century.
Milan’s Navigli District is one of the liveliest parts of town especially when the sun goes down.
And because Milan is one of the fashion capitals of the world you couldn’t come to this city and not go shopping.
Prior to arriving in Italy I was already salivating over the opportunity to try Italian pizza.


We visited the Basilica of Sant’Eustorgio (nearby our neighborhood), which is believed to have once held the relics of the Three Magi. If you didn’t get enough of the Duomo and the rooftop terrace, you can also visit the Duomo Museum, which covers the cathedrals history and art a little more in depth. We dropped by the Museum of Natural History, which is probably geared more towards children, but we were still curious to see their dinosaur displays. Lastly, on our final night in Milan we went out for one last stroll around the city to enjoy some nighttime views. By Jennifer On July 25, 2016 · 2 Comments With all of the Pokemon Go fun happening across the globe, I thought it would be fun to jump on this band wagon!
Take your Pikachu with you on your Pokemon Go adventures or use him to show off the kids art work! Needless to say, many of the back streets and alleyways no longer exist, having being replaced by posh restaurants, hotels and bars.
Looking at this striking piece of architecture from certain angles, you could easily be in Liverpool. Just to add to the sport the vast majority of the mopeds are electric vehicles and make no sound at all until they snap at your ankles and make you jump out of your skin. We would have loved to have stayed in one of the big luxury hotels just for one night, but were more than satisfied with our flashpacking hotel choice, which was of good quality for the money we paid. With only three full days to explore Milan we hit the ground running and tried to see and do as much as possible.
The cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete and the exterior is covered in Candoglia marble, which gives it its off-white pinkish colour.
We got some great views of the city and it was also really nice getting a closer look at the architecture. Apparently, it is just a coffee and anything sweet including pastries, bread with jam, cake or cookies. Sforza Castle was built in the 15th century by the Duke of Milan, and it then underwent several restorations and expansions in the following centuries. It is considered one of the world’s oldest and most beautiful shopping malls, and its most impressive feature is an arching glass and cast iron roof.
In case you’re not too familiar with risotto it is basically a type of rice that is thick, starchy and absorbs a lot of liquids. They are believed to have been part of a bath house before they were moved to their current location at some point during the 4th century.
The city’s canals are attributed to Leonardo Da Vinci, who in 1482 was called over by the Duke of Milan to help renovate the citya€™s canal system.
We recommend finding a little restaurant along the water’s edge and enjoying a proper Italian meal al fresco. We walked along Via Torino which boasts lots of different boutiques but there is several different areas around the city that you can check out.
So if you want to do as locals do, consider hiring a bike for the day to help you get familiarized with the city.


What I ended up liking best was pizza al taglio (also called pizza al trancio) which is basically extra thick slabs of pizza that almost looks a bit like focaccia bread. We made some time to take a Hop-On-Hop-Off tour of the city, and that helped us see a different side of Milan.
Swing by Il Duomo if you get a chance – it feels completely different when the lights come on and the crowds disperse.
We hope this 20 things to do Milan travel guide, attractions video and photo essay will give you some cool ideas of sights and places to check out around town, and if you have any other suggestions for travellers, feel free to add those to the comments below.
From what I heard they filter the water in such a way to make the coffee taste even better, not sure if that is entirely true but you do get a big difference. Or add a magnet to the back and turn your pokemon craft into a magnetic clip for the fridge or school locker! The crew of the ship were forbidden from leaving China for over a month, but this only cemented his love of all things Chinese. The bus and car drivers however have no aversion to using the horns and you will hear honking of car horns throughout the day and night.   In fact it became quite restful at times, a sort of concerto to Shanghai, if you will. I am pleased to say that this is the only one time this has happened in our three days here (and on our whole tour of China) so its not all like this. We made time for major attractions like Il Duomo, Sforza Castle, and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, but we also veered away from the crowds in search of street art and interesting neighborhoods.
A fun little fact we learned: if you donate enough money you can get one of those church spires all to yourself. A friend mentioned a great little cafe worth visiting and we ended up having our breakfast there every day.
It gets its bright yellow color from saffron that is a bit of a reddish orange color when it is dry; however, when you stick it and mix it with the rice it turns it yellow.
So cruise on down knowing that Da Vinci once strolled the same neighbourhood you are visiting.
Add some glue to the backs of the paper ears and glue them to the inside mouth of the clothespin.
John shares his dad’s love of Chinese food and his ability to work his way through a menu would see us eat cheaply and well in Shanghai. These are something we have never experienced before, the pork filled dumplings are first steamed and then crammed into a massive frying pan to have their bottom made crispy. Most of the shops and food places away from the main tourist sights charge the same prices as the locals. This being Italy, we also tried to prioritize meals, sampling everything from pizza to risotto, and cappuccinos to aperitivos.
