Actually I might've been ok if it wasn't for the plane turbulence on the way over from Frankfurt. I don't know if that was normal. At one point our plane shook and fell down so much we literally all flew up off our seats a few inches and some people screamed. I'm really not exaggerating either. It was sooo scary. I experienced that only once before that I can recall - last year when I went to HK so I don't know if that was normal.. I was feeling fine (apart from a sore throat and runny nose) until then. Then as the plane was landing I got a huge headache and felt like throwing up. I didn't though but from then on until now, I've felt that way (on the taxi over from my hotel, I even had to ask the driver to stop in between so I could take a walk outside before continuing on). He also had trouble finding a street to my hotel. So the drive was double the time it should've taken.
Anyways I checked into the hotel, got changed and freshened up a bit. Walked out to see I am literally right beside La Rinascenete - a luxury department store. So I went in and immediately got my new Givenchy bag! I have to say the salespeople in there were not really friendly. I should've just gone to the main boutique for it. Then found out one of my credit cards got frozen for security reasons..(luckily I had another that worked), so after getting back to the hotel and sorting it out again, I went for a walk around the Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. My hotel is located right beside so it was a quick walk. Then it suddenly began to get really windy and cold, so I didn't stay out long.
Ended up back at La Rinascente's restaurant for my attempt at dinner. I say attempt because I ordered it but only was able to have a few bites before I felt sick again. So I asked them to pack it for me and I took it back to the hotel..ended up taking a nap for a few hours. Woke up and still felt sick so I took a bath. Worked for a bit. & Now I still feel really sick so I'm going to sleep and reallyyyy hoping the rest of the trip will be better.
Unfortunately I wasted most of today doing nothing. Hopefully it will be nice weather tomorrow because I'll have a lot to do. I'm only in Milan for 1 more night before heading to my next destination.... :)
I'll try to post a full photo post tomorrow and will update again so check back!
