Step in Milan that ...
It happened to me at the end: I moved to the city of Lombardy, Milan.
After a very quick search of opportunities between the zones and the apartments, I have come across a charming little hole in Porta Romana that allows me to reduce my journey to work from about 100-110 minutes from Vercelli (including trains, buses, and feet) to 10 minute walk!
Oh yes ... all different, completely!
Now I can finally carve out a little 'personal time, to attend to some business as a good man of the house and maintain a mood definitely higher without having to put up with the constant misadventures of Trenitalia!
Now we'll see if there will be other changes taking place in the future ... a hug to everyone!
