Day Trip to Milan The place - 9/10 Nightlife rating - N/A local lady rating - 4/10 Tune of the trip - N/A
6th Jan 2007
set off for the next European destination a day trip to Milan (Bergamo)
only £23 on Ryan air
set off at 4am picking up Daniel and his mate Adam from his house then headed off to Luton,, got parked then got checked in heading through to get some breakfast and meeting up with two more people from his work,,
Had priority tickets which are well worth the £2 as you get to Queue jump and get the emergency seats on the plane ( with all the leg room !!!!!) helps when your 6ft 4 !!!,, took off and headed off to Bergamo,, on the last stage of the flight we flew across the Alps getting some amazing views and pictures for that matter,,,
Landed ok then got through passports took bloody ages as was stuck behind some bloody Africans and there visas took ages,, after that came through and got a bus to Bergamo for a view around the mountain city before Milan,,
the bus took us nearly to the top of the mountain,, but then we had to get a cable type car the last bit,, at the top there was some amazing views across the city and of the Alps in the distance,, we climbed a little higher and found an old ruin castle so had a look around that taking more pics,, after about an hour we headed down going through the town and markets,, every one got something to eat,, but I had to keep up the tradition of having a McDonalds in every country I go to !!!!,, so got that before getting the half 1 train to Milan was really good as was only 6 euros and was about an hour on it !!!
Got into Milan at about 2.30 and headed for the underground and got are tickets loads of dodgy people where hanging about on the underground but suppose get that everywhere,, we got to a station surfaced and saw a amazing massive cathedral and a few other buildings took a few pics,, having to tell a bird seed seller to fu@k off as they put bird seed in your pockets so pigeons swoop
down on you then charge you for it!!!!
We left Daniels friends here as they wanted to go shopping as me and Daniel headed off for a treat the San Sero Stadium!!!!!!!
we got the Underground to the station then a bus to the ground we suddenly realised there was a lot of AC Milan fans about ,, we had only Planned on getting a few pics of the ground maybe even a tour if lucky , we got there and found tickets where still on sale and where only 10Euros for a cup match against AC Milan and Juventus !!!!!!!!!!!,, we got are tickets and got into the ground ,, it was the scariest atmosphere I have ever experienced ,, Air bombs going off every few minutes making the 80,000 person ground shake,, flares being lit up and drums and chatting like a scene from central Bagdad !!!!!
as the game started we saw all the big name players playing,, Buffon , Del Piero, Trezague, Nedved and the rest of the Juventus team with Maldini, Cafu, Gattouso, Seedorf, and all the Milan team,,
By half time the score was 1-1 ,, was not happy when
juventus scored as in front of us there where some juventus fans and above us where AC so they celebrated and we where pelted in plastic bottles, pop corn and some filthy bugger spitting down on us,, dirty turn coat bastered !!!! , after 60 minutes we had to leave as we had to get to the airport!!
The buses where not running so we ran about a 1km to the underground poor Daniel was shattered where I barely broke breath ,,,lol,,
we made the underground going back to the main train station to get the bus to the airport,,,
some how we bumped into Daniels friends ,, Daniel got his sow on flags for his bag then we got the bus to the airport ,, had some food then got the plane back to Luton,, getting in at 1am
A quality day out probably one of the best ever,,,
Daniels still wasn’t over as 3 hrs later him and Adam flew to Frankfurt in Germany,,, No thanks for me I needed a kip,,lol
