PDA is OK in Milan: Ish Meets Italy

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d share this photo that I took in Milan:

PDA is not an issue in Europe 🙂 I photographed this lovely couple in the streets of Milan while I was doing the touristy thing. Judging from the suitcases at their feet, it appears that they have just reunited or are about to part ways.

While the story behind the tender moment escapes me, I captured the memory forever. I like imagining the stories behind random moments like this and this is one of the best things that I like about Europe.

People there are not ashamed to show affection. Public displays of affection are not frowned upon like they are here in Asia. The Philippines in particular, has been very conservative about kissing in public. Holding hands is perhaps as far as you can go without making everyone else uncomfortable.

This is one of the things that I enjoy most about travelling. Experiencing how other people live their lives is a lesson that can only be learned on the streets of foreign lands.
