The Other Side of Milan: A 3-hr Walking Tour

When my friends told me we are going to Milan for a weekend to celebrate our birthdays, my first question was: “Why Milan?” She answered: “To do shopping, what else?” Since the group pretty much decided that we’re going to Milan and I wasn’t really up for shopping for 2 ½ days, I managed to [...]

Hotel Review: ADI Doria Grand Hotel, Milan, Italy

A couple of friends and I drove to Milan for the weekend and we stayed at the ADI Doria Grand Hotel – a 4-star hotel. While it was my first time to stay in this hotel, it was my friend’s third time and she refuses to stay in other hotels in Milan. I enjoyed my [...]

When I decided to start a blog about Geneva and travelling Europe, I didn't think it would become more of a travel review blog. To be honest, I just wanted to document my trips [...]

Brittany, France Part 2: Josselin and Rochefort-en-Terre

On our last day in Brittany, from Vannes, we drove to Josselin and Rochefort-en-Terre before heading to the airport in Nantes. But before that, we again decided to check out the local coffee shops in Vannes for breakfast again. Since it was a Sunday, we couldn’t find an open café that was close to our [...]
