The new city lights

Although I have tried to travel as much as I could, explore new places and step out of my comfort zone for the past couple of years, changing the postcode was always temporary and had an expiration date. This time, however, I decided to do otherwise, and take the plunge. I changed not only the city but also the country. No pre-established returning date needed. Something tells me, that here, in Valencia, my collection of sunglasses will expand quite a bit whilst the chunky sweaters and coats will be at the bottom of the closet for most of the time.

Valencia, little Paris on Spanish coast

There is no Eiffel Tower, but there are palms, there is no La Défense, but there are Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias – although Paris and Valencia seem to be extremely different cities, I have found many common features in them.

Milan Fashion Map: Armani/Silos

Milan is considered to be one of the key fashion capitals of the world, and I couldn’t agree more but why is that exactly? Is it the fact that the Italians are famous for its unique sense of style, and every second Italian woman that I pass by on the street has a luxury brand bag? Yes, but not only. Milan is one of the richest Italian cities, where life is, unfortunately, not the cheapest, and I witness it every day, wondering its streets, sometimes in a hurry, sometimes deliberately getting lost in its corners. Everywhere I go, I see countless boutiques with clothes, haberdashery, and accessories. Clothes shops are definitely easier to find than grocery stores, which can be sometimes quite funny because it’s easier to buy a new dress here than, for example …a pack of pasta.
