A Blissful Journey

Travelling is an appealing experience wherein you can experience new adventures and enjoy new places. It also gives you a joy of exploring new things, meeting up with new people and tasting different cuisines. Through travelling, you will also have a chance to know yourself better and appreciate the beauty of life.
I love travelling and explore new places. It excites me. It relaxes me and it gives me independence.
I was a cultural exchange student in Europe for 4 years and I was able to visit 10 cities.
My most favorite city is Paris. I love the architectural design of their buildings and the amazing Eiffel Tower. I travelled together with friends and celebrated my birthday at the City of Love. We did canal tour and took pictures of some other beautiful sceneries. We also visited The Notre Dame, Sacre Couer, Arch de Triumph, Champ Elysees and the walking street. French macarons are also the best from Laduree. And of course, the very delish croissant from France.
Are you craving for tasteful pasta with pesto and stone baked pizza? Then, go to Italy and enjoy their Italian cuisine.My best friend and I love to take adventures together. We went to Milan, Italy. I am amazed how beautiful Duomo is. Italian artists were talented and full of amazing ideas. We also took a walk inside Galleria Vittorio Emanuelle II where you could see signature brands like Prada, Louis Vuitton and much more. It is an arcade lined with elegant shops, bars, and restaurants. Inside are mosaics with the symbols of the cities of Italy. Italians consider it good luck to stand on the testicles of the bull and we actually did it.
After a day of exploring Milan, we took a train going to Verona, Italy.
Verona is just a small city and known as the city of Romeo and Juliet. We had a chance to see Juliet’s balcony and her statue. I and my best friend rubbed Juliet’s breast because that said it is a sign of good fortune. From Verona, we took a train again going to Venice, Italy. Venice is the beautiful and interesting place to go to. Standing in the middle of Piazza San Marco with a dove on my hand is an amazing experience. We took a trip down the Grand canal through a water bus. Venetians are taking water taxis to go to another island to buy things they need. Venetian cuisine is also the best with their delicious thin crust pizza and fettuccini with pesto.
Indeed, to travel is a blissful journey and a story to tell. Life is short to be spent in 4 corners of your room. Pack your bags up, invite a friend, plan a memorable trip and make a story of a lifetime.
