Roam in Rome

Rome for four days by myself is by far the best solo trip in my life. I was scared at first and felt lonely at times but that doesn't stop me from exploring the wonders of The Eternal City . I must say it wasn't that hard to tour around Rome because tourist spots are accessible by trains and Italians are really wonderful people. They go out of their way to help you. Faith in humanity restored ika nga ;) I came accross the many beautiful and well-decorated restaurants and shops, fountains, museums and pretty parks. 

It was scorching hot when I got there and was really tough to spend the whole day out in the sun. But wth, aarte pa ba ako ? So kahit mainit, tuloy ang rampa sa Roma. LOL.

Indeed Rome has a lot to offer. I wish I had more time to explore the city. I would love to come back and definitely not alone anymore ;) 
Grazie, Italia. Io ti amo! 


The cool city of Köln Germany

Short but sweet visit. Cologne was one of the most bombed cities in Germany during the world wars so you can hardly see medieval buildings at present time. The Cathedral is the main attraction of the city and was one of the few structures spared from bombing. It is so majestic that I tried my best to take a photo of all the angles of the church. Kulang na lang mgrent ako ng plane para sa top view. lol. Seriously though, it was so difficult to take a photo of the dom 'coz it's so huuuuge! Nakakamangha sa ganda! I also had the chance to see contemporary art in Ludwig Musuem which houses one of the largest collections of Pablo Picasso and other famous artists. Seeing Picasso's works in person gave me goosebumps. I'm not into art but his paintings fed me unexplainable ecstatic feeling. Also, had a chit chat with one of the security guards of the musuem. When I told him I'm from the Philippines, he hummed a few notes of Freddie Aguilar's song ANAK. I was so amazed. Ang sarap ng feeling. Kakaproud lang. :)

The city also has a Love Lock Bridge called Hohenzollernbrücke. Sabi na eh may forever sa Deutschland. <3hehe. I had a pleasure discovering the fourth largest city of Germany. It was really a nice experience. One for the books!

City of Lille

Lille is a charming city in the North of France. The people here are known to be very friendly. Well I can attest to that because one of the strangers offered to take a photo of me siguro dahil nahihirapan na syang nakikita akong nahihirapan mgselfie and gumamit ng iphone timer. haha. Lille has a lot of magnifique narrrow cobblestone streets, pretty restaurants, art mesueums, old and beautiful buildings and of course delicious french bread. So worth it ang paglalakad. vraiment merveilleux! 


Amsterdam Love

When in Ghent

A vibrant city in Belgium that offers historical richness and authenticity through the many beautful monuments and museums. And of course, it is where Jose Rizal published his El Filibusterismo. chos :)#humihistory101
