Mille Miglia 2019

Post by thommo » Thu May 09, 2019 6:45 pm

Due to my advancing years and failing memory, I may have mentioned this before.
I’m off to see the above on an organised tour. Mrs T is tagging along despite muted protests which got a lot louder when we realised we will be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary in Milan on Sunday, ahead of the tour start on the Tues.
Bit of a cock-up on the planning front but that’s not unusual for me.
Any sparkling suggestions as to how I can mark this momentous anniversary? I think a visit to the Alfa Romeo museum falls into the same category as the Lawnmower Museum in Southport that I once suggested to her ladyship and which was sharply rejected.
Flowers, Prosecco . . . ?

If it was Lorraine and me, Steve I would take her for lunch by the pool and a tour of Villa Necchi Campiglio, sadly for Lorraine it won't be happening on Sunday as I will be riding to Formentor etc. :mrgreen:

Something Ruby related would be a plan, to go with the Prosecco and the fine dining

Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II,
is the obvious one, just hope you haven't paid for hold luggage as it might get expensive :lol:

Thanks, fellas. I think I knew all along that I would be in trouble so maybe 6970k’s McDonalds might not be enough to dig me out of the hole.
I’ve emailed a swish restaurant not far from the hotel but yet to hear back.
To be fair Mrs T is taking it all in her stride and happy to laugh at my predicament. Thanks again👍

I guess a slap up lunch is normally offered in exchange for confessions of some sort? Best not go there then.

Why go Swiss when you are in Italy? At the very least get the girl a pizza, she could even choose her own toppings?
