Ostello Bello Grande, Milan

One word. Fantastic.

 

My trip to Milan is special because I have not been travelling alone for so long. In fact, I could not even remember the last time I travelled alone. So, to lessen my worry, I asked for a hostel recommendation from my friend. And she said that choosing Ostello Bello Grande would never go wrong. And I prove it. Located in Via Roberto Lepetit, 33, 20124 Milano, Italy, this hostel is just 5min walk airport shuttle terminal. It’s also 7min walk from Milan Central Station.


I arrived last night around 1AM. 24h reception welcomed me with a smile and welcome drink. I checked in to a 5-bed-mixed dormitary room which was occupied with me and one guy. Milan was so warm that night but luckily the room has an AC. I slept soundly immediately. Woke up and took a shower, I realised a girl came last night (morning?). I didnot hear her. Thanks for being quiet, good hostel manner.

Stevns Klint

leave a comment »

Few weeks back, I organized a cykletur (or a biking tour in English) to a cliff area named Stevns Klint. We met at Copenhagen central st. with our bike and took the train to Køge. It was quite a long ride, ca. an hour. When we arrived at Køge, we started following google maps to the cliff area. Google estimated the trip will take 1,5h but it took us 2h to get there. 😉

Previous days are here and here.

Day 6: Bergen-Ålesund
We woke up like a new born person. It felt like a year ago since we had a good nice comfortable sleep. With a fresh mind, I remembered that I had a friend living in Bergen. So, we contacted her and she welcomed us with a warm Indonesian brunch. Yummm!

After brunch with Rusminah and baby Nico, we continued our journey to Ålesund. The journey to Ålesund was simply breathtaking. We took 2 ferry rides to go there, Ferry in Lavik for 167 NOK and Ferry in Solavågen for 155 NOK. They were all quite short trips, for 15 minutes only.

Day 4: Odda-Tyssedal-Trolltunga
We woke up really early. I had to take my multivitamins and mineral every night to get my body on shape for this trip. We arrived around around 9am, paid the parking fee for 200 NOK and started hiking in Trolltunga at 10am. The return hike trip was predicted to be around 10-12 h. And we had 12h or maybe 12.5h. We got back down around 9pm. It was CRAZY!

The Louvre, Paris, France

leave a comment »

photo 2Ever since I watched and read The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown, there’s this lingering feeling to visit The Louvre museum one day. Well, the day has come. And I have never felt like this for ages. I have never  imagine that I would be standing in front of the pyramid of The Louvre in Paris, France. What a dream came true! ❤

It’s not hard to get to this museum. There are signs to get there. Well, to make this settle once and for all, Paris is a very tourist-friendly place. But, even though there are so many tourist attractions in Paris. A place like The Louvre might push you to the limit because of its long (very long) queu. And sometime we just dont get it. We could buy the ticket else where, but where? Is it legal tickets? is it more expensive than the ticket from The Louvre counter?

Well, i’m glad to say. We really could get the tickets elsewehere to avoid the super long queu. The price is still the same and it’s legit! This is one of the “tourist-friendly” thing that I mentioned you ealier. In fact you might even get a discount if you booked the tickets in advance. Now, that’s a good deal, dont you think?
