Strolling around Milan

June 2013

Most of you already know my opinion about Milan so I won't insist :-) Exactly one year later there I was again.

Some nice weather and warm temperatures invited me to get out of my room and do the very same circuit. Parco Sempione is really worth it during the summer!

But don't be thinking this an easy life... Just before going to Milan we were awarded with a LIS-BRU-LIS roundtrip.

One photo at Brussels Airport with the tail of our aircraft reflected on the airbridge:


Arriving at night, only in the next day, it was time to visit Milan!

Arco della Pace

Parco Sempione

Beautiful...

Duomo

Again, Duomo...

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II

Awesome glass dome


And time to go back in Lisbon... at Linate Airport:

Meridiana Fly

Sunny Lisbon :)


Next time I plan to cacth a train to Lago di Como even if I have to make it alone.

VFR flying - Peniche

April 2013

Is there a better way to celebrate the Freedom's day in Portugal (25th april) than to experience the freedom of flying? I think not ;)

This was my second solo flight with the following route: Cascais-Peniche-Cascais.

Reaching Peniche...

Strange but usual propeller effect

Peniche peninsula

Fortress on the left side

Baleal beach - it was quite windy...


Going back to Cascais, abeam Santa Cruz.

After landing, at Cascais aerodrome... nice tail line-up though it's not my flying school.
