As the year is approaching to 31st Dec, the holiday bug begins to bite…deeeeepppp…
I was taking a break from wrapping presents and was looking through the pictures on the home PC… and I realized - I really miss EUROPE!!!
Here are some beautiful photos!
We started with Greece! The mystical land which I used to know about in books about ancient gods.
Acropolis’ pillars in Athens, Greece!
Great view from Acropolis!
I love the white stone houses on Mykonos Island!!! We decided our next house will be mainly WHITE!
Delicious buffet breakfast at our boutique hotel in Mykonos….facing the swimming pool and the beautiful sea… What a view!
Windmills at Mykonos Town
I was wrapped up like crazy cos the sun was scorching hot as we tread on this volcano on Santorini Island!
Beautiful sunset at the romantic Santorini Island… still in Greece!
And off we went to Switzerland!
Loads of Swiss shopping!!!
Chanel… there was also Gucci, LV and more!
BATA in Switzerland!!!?
Then off we went up up and away to the cold cold Swiss Alps! It was up to –2 degree celcius in summer time May!
Very high up!
Took pictures with the ice sculptures at Ice Palace on the famous Jungfrau mountain!
Colder… I mean …so coooollllll….
Beautiful alps so near to us…… We thought we were in paintings…!
Beautiful swiss cottages and flowers as we walked half way down the mountain….! (The 1st half we took train and cable car down! We are amazed at the Swiss transport system in the mountain. Further, they are well known for being efficient and super punctual!)
Then we took a nature walk from the bottom of the mountain back to our hotel… So adventurous… but our legs ached like crazy after 1.5hours of walking! Here is the paranomic view as we walked along!
Do you know this is the view opposite our hotel? I open my eyes every morning on my bed and a waterfall in the mountains greet me… indescribable creation of God!
Cows from my hotel window view….
Then off we went to Paris! We remember Paris for…
Picture of Effifel Tower by day… a MUST TAKE!
And the view by night! SO COLD!!!
Then the tower began to emit glittering neon lights at about 10.30pm (Paris time of course!) So cool!
MUSEUMS… AND MORE MUSEUMS! (We visited the Louvre, hotel des Invalides, Musee Rodin etc)
Many statues in the garden at Rodin… But I cant find our photo of The Thinker! O man….
War pieces at Invalides.
We were not allowed anywhere near Mona Lisa… so we took a picture with her from far… What a privilege! HAHA!
Glass Pyramid at the Louvre
The kids’ art lesson at Musee Rodin!
PALACES (Versailles where Louis XIV lived)
Outside the palace
The palace is soooo big…
The outdoor garden is grossly huge!
Inside the palace.. the ballroom
CHURCHES (We visited Notre Dame etc)
A tomb - Napoleon's tomb.
You could sense an awe… presence of God here…
There were basically MANY MONUMENTS EVERYWHERE!!!
Even the overhead bridge is a monument (made of real gold!)
Arc de Triomphe
And not forgetting the wide variety of COLORFUL DELICIOUS PASTRIES!
We really miss Europe. It’s really a 1 of a lifetime experience!
Anyway, we settled for a Bangkok trip for the last few days of this year. Though nothing close to Europe, we will have shopping, massage, good food galore and each other … and that’s good enough! :)
