WELCOMMMMMEEEE TO ISRAEL!!! After a quick 3 and a half hour flight from Rome to Israel, a various number of security checks, and a taxi ride, we finally made it to Jerusalem. It was almost dusk when we arrived at our apartment so we got settled and decided to walk around the neighborhood, look for some dinner. A lot of the shops were closed early that night because it was Sabbath day the next day but luckily we found a small grocery store that was open and also a pizza place! We headed home straight after dinner to rest up for our first touring day in Israel!
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.
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.
Hi guys!!! Hope you’ve all had a great start to the year 🙂 Mine’s been great so far and I’m finally back to regular blogging! I have A LOT of back logs coming up in the next few months. Mainly – finishing off my Venice, Rome, Florence, Pisa, Israel and La Union posts! So excited to share them with you guys 😛
For our second touring day in Venice we spent most of it exploring the St. Mark’s area. If you missed my first post on Venice, click here.
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!
I did a London Bucketlist a few weeks back so I decided to do one for Paris as well! I’ve been wanting to go for years and years and years, and finally, back in April my family and I spent a few days there. It was just a couple of days into Spring and it was really cold, with some days hitting roughly 2 degrees Celsius! We weren’t prepared “clothes-wise” but we made do with the clothes we had, layered and layered up, and had an amazing few days in one of the beautiful cities in the world!
