West Europe in Polaroids

Milan, Italy
Didn't shop a lot in Italy, but kind of regret it why we don't shop a lot. Everything is cheaper in here. But Milan was greaaaaat. Greater than Rome, Florence, Pisa or even Venice! I love the weather, it's really sunny and I feel like really spending my summer there. There was a time when the temperature reached 31 centigrade. And yes, I got darker in here.
Lucerne, Switzerland
Geez, I don't know what to say about this country. I fall in love with Switzerland since I was a kid. I knew this country from my dad & mom who have been in there before both on summer and winter. They say it's more beautiful in winter. I feel like I wanna go back but in winter. The people are nice (YES THEY ARE! Hospitable, warm, charming, gentle and pleasant. I guess I'm just playing with vocabs) If it is called a peaceful country, then they truly deserve it. Every shop closes at 10ish. And even my hotel in Brunnen, the receptionist goes back to her crib at 9.30. So, we were doing self-service at the midnight in case you're going outside from the hotel. Hahahaha!
Brussels, Belgium
I left my heart in this small country. You'll find a lot of chocolates & truffles in here, they're way cheaper than any other countries I've ever visited. Visited the Mannekin Pis. Sort of clueless what's the story behind that sculpture but well, it's popular. From what I heard, Brussels is gonna be the capital of Schengen countries. And the weather? It was a rainy day. But I like it!! A lot of things happen in this city.
Paris, France
Who doesn't know bout this country? I think all of you guys have known a lot of things about France. So, I just want to share a story, it was a stupid mistake. I saw Ladurée shop for about 3 times, I even still remember the street to that place if you drop me in Paris right now. But yes, we didn't have a chance, a single chance to visit it. Actually, I have. But since my legs hurt like hell, so I had to cancel the car (we even paid 15 euro/person for the bla-bla-blah, I deem it as a cancelation fee) And in the morning when we had to leave Paris, I browsed on google from my blackberry, to the Ladurée site in order to find where else they have the store besides in Versailles and Royale (I saw the shop 2 times in Versailles and 1 time in Royale, we were at the bus so there's no way to stop the bus). And I was like "fuck my life!!", they actually open their shop in Printemps! We were at Printemps on the day before I had to leave Paris. And I actually saw the shop but I didn't know it was Ladurée!! Since we were lost at that day (and that's why my legs in great pain) and my sister and I was so afraid we couldn't catch the bus. Next time I go to Paris, I swear to myself I have to visit these stores!!
Den Haag, Netherlands
Netherlands, what can I say? I thought it's gonna be so boring in here. But I'm totally wrong. Volendam, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and even Den Haag, they're the most suitable places for me to live. I love the food, the people and the places. But if I have an option to choose which one is my favorite; there you go, Volendam. Too bad, the weather was so not as warm as Paris (it's not that warm too in Paris since it's below than 20 centigrade in the morning and around 20 in the day). I actually hate Paris, kind of sucks, it's raining all the time in there. Not even close to the word Summer! But in Netherlands, it's not raining all the time but it is frickin' cold outside, even there's a sun, it's still cold enough for me to shiver.

There's still Vatican City and Germany but yeah, enough said. I gotta sleep!
Good night, readers!

Paris, Je t'aime

Thursday, June 10, 2010

This is the thing you need to do, once you're arrived in Paris. I finally bought my favorite Chanel. Ah, it feels so damn gooooood!! So I went around Galeries Lafayette and Printemps. Shopped a lot and I was caught in the rain with my sister. It was raining all day long in here. The temperature is around 18 centigrade. And thank God I wore my boots. However, I got wet a little.
A lesson for today: remember the name of your meeting point, the street number and the store across the meeting point or else, you'll get lost.

Summer Time

Wednesday, June 09, 2010
I saw Venice. I saw Milan. I saw Lucerne. I'm spending this three days in Paris. Then I'm gonna see Brussels, Amsterdam and Dusseldorf. And I will leave my heart in here. I don't really think that I want to come back home, everything is splendid in here. Thank God I still have a lil time to stay in around Europe. Have a nice summer you guys!!

Kisses and hugs,
