I decided to do the southern part of Iceland. I was told that was a very nice part of the country so I checked out and decided to stay in another hostel in the southern part and spent the rest of my days in Iceland there. After I checked out, I met two other travellers … Continue reading Ice In Iceland
It actually sounds scarier than it is. It was very safe otherwise the company wouldn't have let us in. I signed up an 'Inside a volcano' tour but because it happened in the afternoon, I joined a free walking tour in Reykjavik in the morning. I like joining free walking tour. The first time I … Continue reading Inside A Volcano In Iceland
I decided to go somewhere cold in 2016. When you think about cold places, Iceland has to be one of them. It'd not be my first time to go to Northern Europe. The last time I went there was in 2009 when I travelled to Norway with my friend who was then working in Denmark. … Continue reading Around Golden Circle Iceland
I returned to my hostel in Rome from Florence. So cool! It was probably the cleanest hostel I had stayed at in Italy. It didn't have any spa or sauna but it was really clean. I decided to go to Isola so I walked there from my hostel. I went past Altare della Patria close … Continue reading Back To Rome
I arrived in Florence in the morning. It was soooo crazy! I paid EUR20 per night for the hostel (some people paid EUR10 or EUR14 per night) and guess what I got? An indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, Turkish bath, gym, a clean room with a few bunk beds in it and a bar at … Continue reading Beautiful Florence And Siena
It had been raining all day. Bought the ticket to Lago di Como so I went there early in the morning. But it was raining so hard and it was so cold that I decided not to stay there. I went to the Duomo there and attended the mass. That was all. The lake and … Continue reading Rainy Day In Lago di Como
I got off the train from Vicenza to Milan to meet up with my Italian friend that I met in Seychelles. It was good to see him and his girlfriend. They were back together (they broke up later). My friend kept telling me, 'there is nothing to see in Milan other than Duomo.' So, we … Continue reading What Can You See In Milan?
I met an Italian jewellery designer before this trip. He said, ‘you should come to Vicenza. That’s my home. It’s beautiful. A lot of jewellery designers are from there.’ Alright. So, even though it’s not as famous as other touristy places in Italy, I went there. It’s a little town but it did have some … Continue reading The Little Gem, Vicenza
'WOW!' I screamed, 'Hollywood setting!' That was my impression when I saw the Basilica in Venice. Let's rewind. 🙂 I arrived at Venice yesterday and met my roommate. We decided to hang out together today. She was quite tall, well, taller than I. When we chatted about our jobs, she told me she was an … Continue reading The Merchant of Venice 🙂
I didn't realize Roman forum and Palatino were that big. I started early in the morning and finished in late afternoon. I had to skip some places because I was too tired. I then walked to Colosseum but was told it was closed! 🙁 I had my ticket in my hands. I was so disappointed. … Continue reading Gladiators!
