Travels – Truffles, Gladiators, McQueen, Big Apple, & Messi
Alan and I have got so much goodness to share and we can’t wait to begin our much malnourished blog with lots of travel stories. We hope to feed you with lots of useful holiday tips, places to visit, hotels to stay, fashion finds and all the fabulous food we ate. Thank God we did a lot of walking.
So where did we go? Can you take a guess and figure out what we did in each city?
Here are some bits and pieces I collected from each major city…
We’ve waited donkey years (lost count) and saved up heaps of shrapnel (pockets emptied) to finally travel to Europe and the US. I think we are probably one of the last couples in Australia to go to Europe. All my friends have raved about Europe, some have moved there for work and even some have found THE one. As for us, it was the trip of our lifetime – the final big trip before we settle and have little Woos running around.
Paris was definitely our favourite destination. In 5 seconds, these are the things that spring into mind when I reminisce my time in Paris – Louboutins, fur coats, flea markets, sartorial, goats cheese, stylish, Mono Lisa, mesmerising, truffles, crepes, bistro chairs, macaroons, sexy and vintage bikes.
Second was Rome – Ancient, food coma, Michelin, gladiators, frozen pizzas, D&G, cobbled stones, God, Michelangelo, fascinating, architecture, water fountains, marble and more marble.
Third was London – The Queen, Big Ben, Pret-a-Manger, Burberry, Oyster card, Alexander McQueen, cheese melt sandwiches, icy cold, English pubs, jam-packed trains and Jamie Oliver.
Fourth was New York – Big apple, all-you-can-eat buffet, Victoria Secrets, SOHO, Big Brown Bag, Halloween, Times Square (over-rated!) Broadway, 5th Avenue, Sephora, ground zero, UFC and baseball.
Lucky last was Barcelona – Touristy, weird art, pick pocketers, Gaudi, ZARA, football mania, Messi, tapas, sangrias, cured meats, olives, dinner starts at 8pm and Camp Nou.
That’s pretty much how I would summarise our experiences in each great city. We spent 3 good weeks, 4 days in each great city to soak in the culture, the language, and jaw-dropping views.
I loved every single day.
And I got to spend it with Alan.
Now it’s your turn. Which is your favourite city and why?
