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!
Read on to see all the things I got to check off my Paris bucketlist! You can also check out my other Paris blogs here and here.
DREAM. COME. TRUE.
Yesssss, finally made it!!! Can’t tell you how long I’ve been wanting to visit Paris and the Eiffel Tower!!! ♥
My family and I left London’s St. Pancreas International Train Station at around 9:20 in the morning. It was our first time on the Euro Star and we were heading to Paris so naturally I was pretty excited! Our train tickets were 45 pounds for adults and 43 pounds for youth (aged 12 to 25). It was just a short train ride, in less than 3 hours we were in Paris’ Gare Du Nord station. Arriving at around 1 pm, we took another train to Gare De Lyon station.
