And yet another outdated one (Florence & Pisa)

22 Feb

Reluctantly we bid adieu to Venice and headed to Florence. Another of my fav city. At least the bars and pubs open till wee hours in the morning and they have many shops that sells pretty intricates. It was one the most happening city with night life:P And the Gelato shop near our hostel was AWESOME. I was so addicted i had it minimum BD:P Best of all evrywhere was within walking distance:)

Florence by nightfall

Beautiful isnt it?

We also headed to Pisa for a day. Too bad it rained and crushed our dreams of camwhoring with the famous leaning tower. Cant possibly do that with an umbrella in one hand and the fear of getting wet:P  Us being us that did not deter us from making full use of our prop. Hehe

Btw, i think the leaning tower is overrated.

22 Feb

I was looking through pics of my summer trip and then realised, hey i havent blogged about these! I think i only mentioned Milan:P I truly missed Italy and Paris and will definitely go back if i have the chance to. And cash of course:P

I know its like 2 seasons past summer  but its never too late right. Its nice to look back.hehe. And a lil reminder of what i did in case i get Alzheimers 30 years later haha

I have the tendency to korek things to blog about when i am subjected 24hours in front of my laptop doing my assignments. sigh.And making sense out of my nonsensical lab results. double sigh

Ok. Now lemme talk about my trip. or whatever bits i remember from it.hehe

From Milan we took the morning intercity train to Venice.Yes we mainly travelled by water here.

Firtst stop, Murano. Its an island famous for glassmaking as well as lampmaking. The glasses-by products were indeed breathtaking. But the locals not very much so. They werent the most friendly ppl we met mainly afraid that we would smash their glasses. Pfftt.

BURANO AHoy!!! Our FAvourite-est island of the lot!!

Famous for its lacemaking, the island also boasts the most colourful houses ive seen in my life.

The locals were amazingly friendly. Too bad we only had few hours to kill here. Was so reluctant when it was about time to leave.hehe

the famous squid ink risotto. its damn good i tell u. as yucky as it may look

p1020009No it wasnt a gondola ride. its like one minus the musician and comfy seats and decors. This is a traghetto. only 50cents per ride. for cheapskates like us LOL. And we didnt go ALONG the canal. Just ACROSS  it. We just wanted a gist of a gondola-ish ride cos was  too ex:P
