Lugano to meet an old friend Erika :)

Sometimes i wish my stomach was a black hole !

It was time to move south by southwest where i met Erika a nice a lady whom i met last year.

Before that, i decided to hunt for my favourite ice cream in domodossola.

It was a quick train journey there and as i stepped out into the city, it was a extremely familiar site. ( Except a lot colder !!! )

So i quickly headed in the direction of the ice cream store and along the way was starting to get worried as i every ice cream store i passed by was closed ( My friends had warned that most ice cream stores close in the winter)

I finally arrived at my destination to see the familiar signboard but with the shutters down :((((

I was quite devastated coming all this way for nothing....so i decided to make do and go to the nearby bakery and relieve the memory of this small town fine Italian cuisine.

On the way back i passed by the ice cream store again, but this time the shutters were half open and there was a man inside.
I quickly rushed in and asked if it was possible to buy one and here it is...My favourite ice cream in the world :))

Soon it was time to leave and head to Erika's place. The train journey was very scenic and its always nice to watch the world whizz by while you sit comfortably.

Throughout my stay with Erika, i slipped into food coma every single day after every meal. She cooks delicious food but often in colossal portions. ( or maybe my appetite has just been getting smaller recently)

Knowing that i love ice cream, Erika decided to show me how she made ice cream !

Our very own self made ice cream ( again a big portion after a very big dinner !!) haha

We also went for day trips to Como and Ponte Tresa with marvellous italian food and interesting markets....(surprisingly in many of these markets there were asian merchants)

Ok enough of food, time to make my way towards the east !
