Where is St. Petersburg?

St. Petersburg is located in the west of Russia. It is located at the head of the Gulf of Finland which is basically part of the Baltic sea. It is easily accessible as it is a major city in Europe. There are about 5 million inhabitants. If you w...

Day 27

 

Sad times. Today is the last day in Europe. To make it worthwhile, we first traveled to the Borough Market for some fresh oysters.

 

 Afterwards, we spent the rest of our day at the British Museum. I kid you not, most of the artifacts displayed in the British Muse...

Day 26

 

I remember when we took the train (Eurostar) to across the English Channel from Paris to London, it was a disaster and quite exhilarating. 

 

When we traveled between European countries, we never had to present our passports or go through customs because all the c...

Day 24

 

You will not believe how many people lined up early to go to the Louvre. I also swear that majority of the tourists lining up for tickets are Chinese tour groups. 

 

That's okay. We did our part and we were able to get tickets. At the centre lobby, you can see fam...

Day 23

 

It is funny how the first attraction that we visited in Paris was not the Eiffel Tower, nor the Arc de Triomphe, or even the Notre Dame. As a true tennis fan, the first attraction that we visited was the Roland Garros stadium.

 

We took the city train and arrived...

Day 19

When I thought yesterday was a serious day, I was wrong. Today was even more serious and even depressing. We signed up for a paid Sandeman tour to visit a concentration camp - Sachsenhausen. 

 

Since the camp was completely abolished, the site was a large open fiel...

Day 18

 

Once we arrived at Berlin, the atmosphere definitely changed. It is no longer a city of music, like Vienna, nor a city of festival, like Munich. Berlin, to me, gives a very serious tone. It is probably attributed to its history from the World War, and also the s...

Day 17

 

This time, we are really exploring the city of music. One thing I forgot to mention was that yesterday we had Austrian schnitzel for dinner. The schnitzel tastes exactly the same as German schnitzel. To be honest, I don't notice any difference.

 

At Vienna, we tou...

Day 16

 

Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti.... Well, even though we are in Vienna, we are not quite at the centre city of music. We decided to spend a day on a nearby palace, before fully exploring the music culture tomorrow.

 

At the outskirt of Vienna (South west) lies an enormous pa...

Day 15

 

After a wild and crazy party day yesterday at Oktoberfest, we decided to tour around somewhere more classy and elegant. Some of you may have heard of Neuschwanstein, because of those beautiful wallpapers that appear on desktops or art galleries.

 

We had to take a...

Day 14

 

Part of why we scheduled our trip to Munich around end of September was because we did not want to miss the Oktoberfest.

 

In the morning, my friends and I put on our Oktoberfest outfit. It was an attempt to try to blend in the crowd. Do we blend in?

 

Anyway, I mus...

Day 12

 

Most of this time is spent on the train towards Munich. I remember that train is filled with drunk people. This is probably the pre-drink party before Oktoberfest.

 

Day 13

 

At Munich, we signed up with this walking tour called the Sandeman Tour. These tours are aw...
