Milano



Finally, the long awaited photos of my Italy trip!


Let me start with Milano, the second largest city in Italy.


We stayed in NH Concordia Hotel, another hotel that doesn't provide kettle in the room. Why I say this? Simply because all the hotels (except Novotel in Rome) doesn't have kettle in their rooms. And they do not provide mineral water and water dispenser. Even it was below 10 degree celcius, I had no choice but to drink the cold mineral water that we bought from convenience store.

This hotel is very new and what I love most is the free wifi in the room

After visiting the Cathedral, it's finally SHOPPING TIME!

Interior view of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, a high-end shopping mall near Duomo.

Branded stuffs are not to be missed when you travel to Europe! And I got myself a LV bag that costs me a bomb! Would I get bored of this bag after 3 months?

Bicycles for rent.

Can you see the white color small statue at the right? That's a guy with body paints and clothing to make himself a living statue. When people approach him for photos, he would then ask for money. It's not easy to make a living in Europe after the subprime mortgage crisis.

MCD. We went in and planned to have out lunch here but too bad, the queue started at the entrance and eventually we gave up.

The mosaic inside Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II has a bull and you will see it's surrounded by tourists. The tradition goes that placing your right heel on the bull’s balls and then turn on yourself three times, brings good luck.

That's all for now! It's time to pack for my Taiwan trip!

枫遍京都:东福寺


京都实在是太多太多枫景美到不行的神社和寺院。上回和大家分享过清水寺这个赏枫名所,有没有看了就觉得很想去日本赏枫呢?

东福寺也是个鼎鼎大名的赏枫景点。如果你是打算跟旅行团到京都游玩的,那你就会错过这个地方了,因为旅行团通常都只会去清水寺。

由于我们有一天在大阪的自由行,所以一大早我们就起床打扮,然后乘搭地铁到京都的东福寺,为的就是把这些红叶带回来和你们分享!感动吧。。。。。

一个小时后,我们来到了东福寺地铁站。

从地铁站到东福寺大约15分钟。只要下了地铁,跟着人潮走就会到的。跟本不用看地图哦!太美太感动了!

这是我生平第一次见到火红般的枫叶


Tofukuji (8)
抬头望枫叶,低头是黄叶


Tofukuji (9)
这里的风景让我觉得自己好幸运哦,因为枫叶的火红大概只有两个星期,现在可是最佳时机哦!

只要随便拿起相机,就可以拍到美景。不需要拍照技术哦!

Tofukuji (12)
超爱这个落叶满地的角落,只可惜我们不能进去拍照。要不然我一定睡在地上拍个痛快

這個楓紅大道真是太美麗,太夢幻了!

虽然天有一点灰灰的,可是枫叶还是依旧的美丽动人


Tofukuji (22)
比起清水寺的火红,我想这里的缤纷小红更有特色。绿黄橙红真是一级棒的搭配。心醉了。

Tofukuji (23)
真的红的快爆炸了!


Tofukuji (24)


Tofukuji (25)
旺季的京都人潮真的很恐怖。这个通天桥挤得水泄不通,要拍照也难啊!


Tofukuji (27)
最多人拍照的地方

遇见两位卡哇伊的日本女生。日本人真的好好人好有礼貌哦!

说真的,东福寺和清水寺的枫叶都各有特色,一样都令人流连忘返。我最爱的是东福寺缤纷色彩的枫叶。不同颜色相互辉映著,真让人感觉到如琉璃般的奇幻光彩。

看过京都的枫紅就知道为何这么多朋友们百來不膩了^^
