I would like to share the story about a milan days what we spent until last month.
We usually spend our life where the most popular area called Naviglio for 3months between Spring and Fall a year. This area is getting popular among with local people not only traveler, become a trend spot.
The image city of Milan is very busy for bissiness and fashion industria but this area is really chill there are historical bulding, kind of romantic. there are so many interesting select shops and bars, and evening time, you will see fashion people and beautiful milano couple in the river side.


Our Studio and Apartment is just behild this street and we teach Yoga Teachers Training course and workshop almost everyday.


After teaching, usually we take a walk and go to the park. also we spend in the cafe shop and get fresh orange juice and fresh Italian coffee!
Lucky that we can find a lot of Bio market in Milan and we can get fresh local vegetables and fruits and also can find so many variety of vegan product! I love to find new things and try to use these for my Italian vegan cooking in home.
sometimes we go to a Napoli Pizza restaurant bringing the cheese that we bought in the store and They makes a special vegan pizza for us. So tasty!
People are so friendly and has a flexsible mind. I really like the life here where has a old history and deep food culture makes my life more special!


One of the reason why I like a life here, because even the big city but still have a spare time and have a space in their heart. They love to spend time to visit same coffee shop and love to talk with neighbors every moring. Nobady bring tumbler or take out, looks busy but actually not so. Evening the same way, same coffee shop( change the bar) buy a wine, enjoy footballgame all generation together.
Most of the shops and restaurants are closed on sunday and I often see the family is having a picnic in the park or we love to visit country side, enjoy the nature.
Most impressed about Italian culture in this trip is I saw so many old people bring the baby and kids in the park and they are taking care of their grand children in weekday. also everytime we go some gethering, people always bring the food what mother cooked or they love to cook grandma's recipe. Even modern culture today but Italian are still very family oriented, love go connect people even they don't know each other. It is really nice feel the union with family and friends always.

私が今回の旅で一番驚いたのが、平日の公園にお年寄りが孫を連れて面倒を見ている姿をよく見かけたこと。そしてホームパーティーに行くと必ず出てくるのが、ママが作った一皿、そしてグランマ・レシピの料理が登場。これがまた美味しい‼︎ こういった家族とのコミニケーションや近所付き合いが今日の現代社会においても未だとても親密で、あったかいところ。本当に素敵だなと思います。

But Once we visit the central in Milan, we will see sophisticated,,fashion people are walking in the beautiful gothic architect building. They are wearing tiet suits looks so perfect. I feel the big culture gap. but at the same time we are always same eventhough in Paris or hawaii in the gungle or country side in Japan. We will never change our life style, same diet , always practice , try to continue yogic life.
I was walking with Padma in the most famous brand streer in Milan during Waylon's class and I felt '' We are no worries because we know our mission in our life. we are very simple human being. everyday we just apriciate foods that we could eat today, all member of my family has a good health. This is what I want in my life! ''
Next issue is... I wanna talk a great memory of our yoga retreat in the country side Milan!
