We have just been to the doll house show in Milan -
We left home early on Friday as we had to fly from Manchester to Zurich and then onto Milan. Everything was running smoothly until the first plane was delayed by 40 minutes which meant when we landed at Zurich our connection was already boarding - a mad dash through the airport, passport control and a second trip through security (which we were really stressed about at the time as we were sure the flight was going to go without us)! When we got to the gate four other people were in the same situation so they sent a minivan to take us to the plane - we did get some unimpressed looks from the other passengers who must have thought we were sidetracked by duty free shops in the airport lol

Thankfully the rest of the journey was okay, and after a 3 hour car drive, two planes and a 40 minute train ride we got settled into our hotel and had the most awful food imaginable (it was from a take away lol)

The show was held in 3 large rooms, The venue was actually really nice and easy to find and had excellent transport links - it faces Milan Central Station. The organisation of this event was just perfect and you could not ask for better. The tables are well laid out, lots of space for the public, the miniatures were a nice mix and very high quality all in all it was a great event.

We had a really good time at the show, had good sales, met lots of lovely people and we are already planning next years trip!
