A Day in Florence

Finally arrived here in Florence! Another beautiful Italian city that I’ve always wanted to see in person. From Venice, we took a train which only took us around 2 hours. Hassle free and I loved seeing the scenery along the way. Once we arrived in Florence we met up with the owner of the apartment where we’d be staying at for two days. It was around a 15 min walk from the train station to our apartment, very convenient! If you want to see our Florence apartment, click here.

Hello Pisa!

More than a year has gone by since I was in Europe and I know I should’ve written this a loooooong time ago, while the momentum was high but here we are. I’ll try to recollect my thoughts and hope that I have some sort of content for my Pisa post.

We were almost half way through our vacation and we had just arrived in Florence in the morning, travelled from Venice by train which took about 2-ish hours. We met up with the owner of the apartment we had rented out for two days (we booked through booking.com). She showed us around the apartment which was on the 4th floor (with no elevator! Woo that was a work out, the stairs were high!). It didn’t look like much from the outside but it was quite nice on the inside – you can see pictures and read more about our apartment in my other blog post here.

Welcome to Venice!

I was so sad to leave Paris but very very excited that we were heading to Venice! We were up pretty early for our train ride and thankfully the train station was just walking distance from our apartment. Unfortunately when we got there, we had trouble finding our way, there weren’t many people around to ask for directions! We did eventually find our way. But my random tip for everyone is that if you’re not familiar with the place you’re going to be sure to leave earlier than usually so you don’t miss your train/flight!

Hello all! I’ve been neglecting my blog and haven’t posted for just over a month now. Work has been (still is) hectic but it’s APEC week here in the Philippines so I have 5 days off! Also for some reason I haven’t been able to access my blog from my laptop and I’ve tried everything but anywayyyy, I have a lot of exciting travel plans for next year but for now I’ll be posting all my Rome and Singapore photos for #TravelbackThrowback

I’m sure everyone has heard of the Vatican Museums and today I’ll be giving you guys a sneak peak inside to somehow spark your wanderlust, get off your asses and go see it in person because it’s just too beautiful to miss.
