Arrivederci, Europa (See you later)

I’m jumping ahead to today as we wait to go to Malpensa airport after two days in Busto Arsizio, just north of Milan. Another day, I will catch up on Borneo and Qatar. My tablet app does not let me organize the photos well, hence captions at the heading.

Even a village has coffee shops and pastries dreamt in heaven.



Over the last four years, our travels have centered around Lugano and Milano. Many times we flew info Malpensa (MXP) and zipped up to Sorengo and Paradiso to visit Daughter at Uni. Now, she is in Perth, Western Australia, and we complete one more trip to tie up a few loose ends. Our stay in Busto Arsizio brims with memories and nostalgia.

Busto Arsizio was the textile center for Milan during the industrial revolution. The museum has many original machines of the 1880’s and 1890’s.


A typical village square with lanes leading to all sorts of interesting shops.
