This was hastily taken at the carpark of Seravelle Designer Outlet.

We woke up, rather eager to leave Milan and head towards the cold and calm of Chamonix-Mont Blanc, a town at the French Alps.

However, there’s one more place I really wanted to see in Milan; a cemetery.

The Cimetero Monumantale is apparently the most beautiful cemetery on the planet. I tend to agree.

# – The central building at the cemetery.

# – Some of the tombs.

# – A nice park-like place.

# – More tombs.

After the cemetery, we decided to have a quick visit at Serravalle Designer Outlet, which is 60km from Milan, before making our way to France.

# – Seravelle Designer Outlet.

Our “quick visit” turned into 5 hours of shopping. Our plans to reach Chamonix-Mont Blanc while there’s still light so we could see the French Alps completely went into the crapper.

# – Hubs & our loot.

Finally we had to peel ourselves off the gounds of the outlet and made our way to see the French Alps and glacier from the town of Chamonix-Mont Blanc.

We reached after 2.5 hours drive and sure enough, it was already dark. I was starving but most places were already closed.

Finally we found a place that opens till 2am. It is in a basement of a really old building. Was skeptical but had no choice.

# – Hubs and booze at La Caveau.

Well, as it turned out the food definitely was one of the best meals we had on this trip!!

# Escargot, frog legs, tartiflette and creme brulee.

So, so yums. Especially the frog legs….I could lick the plate clean!

We are back at the hotel now. A little too excited to fall asleep because we can’t wait for daylight to break cause we want to see the French Alps!

Mont Blanc pen I saw before lah but the actual Mont Blanc? First time leh!
