Hi guys! Soooo sorry for my lack of updates. I know I’ve been neglecting my blog lately but I promise it’s not because I’m lazy.
Umm ok… maybe just a bit, but that’s because I’m always super tired and my brain can’t think of anything else but my bed after a physically-and-mentally exhausting day at home (SAHM is no joke people, but I love it – except the cleaning part).
Ok enough with the excuses, now let’s talk about something more exciting. My Europe trip! 😀
My husband and I went to Europe earlier this month with my sister, her hubby and their baby. My sister actually asked me a favor to help with her personal shopper business and I was like, YES OF COURSE NO PROBLEM! I mean, shopping and Europe? Those are like two of my favorite things in the world! (ok, it was actually pretty challenging as we had no experience being a personal shopper; I cannot imagine if it were just me and my husband)!
We were a little worried at first tho because we had to leave the girls and the longest we’ve ever been away from them was 2 days. And this time, we were going to be away for 10 days!
We told ourselves that we will FaceTime with the girls everyday (we didn’t, because of the time difference and because our schedule was pretty hectic everyday and come night time, we were both bone-weary from all the walking and shopping). We also told them that we will buy Frozen toys (didn’t manage to get Elsa tho) and that they will stay with their Atok and Wan (my parents) while we were away. They were excited! In fact, they were so excited that they couldn’t wait for us to go! Haha. Ayra even helped me choose and pack my clothes for the trip. Sigh, I missed her already.
Anyway, I’m going to split my blog posts into 3 for each city that we went to because there are so many pictures, you’d pengsan if I just blog everything in one post. Hehe.
This post is all about Rome because that was our first stop. We only stayed there for 2 days but we managed to squeeze in some sightseeing to a few famous places including the Colosseum, Victor Emmanuel Monument, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Roman Forum and Spanish Steps, despite having only a few hours a day for that (we were personal shoppers, remember? So during boutique business hours, 9am-6pm everyday was allocated just for shopping).
The weather was sunny and beautiful, around 18°C. It was just nice – not too cold, not too hot.
You know, I used to love traveling during autumn or winter season (because I get to dress up in coats and knee-high boots hehe) but spring is actually just as fun and beautiful (ok, any season in Europe is fun and beautiful to me, period).
My task was really simple. I was told to snap as many photos of bags and shoes as possible. I love this job, thank you sis! Haha (and yes, all photos were taken using the awesome iPhone 5S camera *ehem* #iphonefanforever)
We passed a million gelato shops while walking around the city and whenever my husband saw one he’d say “Macam menarik”. Itu jela ayat dia kalau nampak makanan LOL. BIL already told us about this best gelato shop in Florence but my husband couldn’t resist trying one in Rome. Layankan saja.
(I’m not sure if I get all the names of the places right so do correct me if I’m wrong)
After shopping, we packed our bags and headed to the train station to Florence.
Ahh… I love Florence. My new favorite city. Will update about that soon!
