Weekend Getaways from Portofino  

When I was flying to Milan I had to literally pinch myself to believe, that I am going to a foreign land all by myself and living my dream.It was around 11.30 pm when I landed in Milan and divulged myself with some serious pep up talks because I felt a tad bit lost.Amidst all the battles in my head, I saw a young woman walking towards the train station and befriended her. To my surprise, she was warm and very helpful. She expressed, “I will come with you till the hostel and grab a drink. I am very upset coz my best friend has moved to another city.” And that’s how her melancholy saved me the despair of finding my way.The walk towards the hostel was fascinating as all I saw around me were stores thriving to get my attention and at the end of the long stretch was the hostel — Ostello Bello.The moment I set my foot in the hostel, it seemed like I have entered a high-octane resto-pub. The place played electrifying music and I could hear tons of chitter-patter with copious amount of laughter coming from every corner.Amidst all the initial formalities of checking-in, my eyes were searching for my friend (Sigh! Struggling to remember her name). That’s when Helder (from the front desk) said, “Hey! Your friend just went and left you a kiss,” and I couldn’t do much but smile and thank her from all my heart. The ‘happy’ me chit chatted for a while with everyone before calling it a night.


About Portofino

Just an hour’s train ride from Cinque Terre lies the village of Portofino, arguably the most photographed fishing port in the world. Don’t be surprised to spot fishermen walking around in their Dolce & Gabbana, for this is a place that has attracted the cafe society of Europe, from Rex Harrison in the 50s to Beyonce in recent times. Check into The Splendido (belmond.com) whose reception logbook features signatures from celebrities since the 1950s. It has just 64 rooms, each with a balcony overlooking the beautiful Italian coastline.Lively Beaches
