Innsbruck, Austria 2014

Photo 6-5-14 1 37 43 pm

Started the morning with buffet breakfast at our hotel. Though the Trafalgar tour package does not cover all lunches and only some dinners, they cover all breakfasts! (: 

Got to thank my sister and parents for taking so much shots for me cause I had heaps of advertorial features to do in Europe! They were patient and sometime after countless of shots, I end up using a selfie cause I kinda know my best angles. Like I would feel the one above was fat. Haha! :P

So after breakfast, we jumped into our coach for our ride to Innsbruck, Austria! It was one of those long coach rides where we slept and woke, slept and woke. We had frequent rest stop breaks for pee breaks and pick up of some food if we were hungry. 

This was the most beautiful rest stop which we stopped at. Zonia and I took photos as our parents did their little shopping at the rest stop.

One of the bad thing about the trip was we were given only a few hours per stop. It was also understandable cause this 12 day trafalgar tour that we took aims to cover as much of Europe as possible. We wanted to look around this beautiful city so we just got some pizza and hotdog buns so we could spend the free and easy time looking around.  

Hawaiian pizza!!

Lecker Bissen hotdog which we chanced upon and decided to get 2 too cause there was quite a number of locals getting their hotdog fix!!

More Kinder and there are the old school eggs!

Kinder Surprise eggs are now old school in Singapore but definitely not old school in Europe. Oh boy! I hope they bring these Kinder Surprise back. I don't understand why they took it away, the new ones are pretty not attractive and I have never tried them since they were changed to. I'm Kinder Surprise's loyal supporter. We grew up with them!!

Enough of Kinder Surprise, one of the shots I took on my iPhone cause the chocolate fudge waffles cones were too beautifully seated on the baker's table! (:

Let me show you Innsbruck, Austria. This view was just in front of us as we walked this shopping district. The view was spectacular, breathless. We were so excited and we took so many shots with it. Doesn't it look like a painting?

The gelato was good. And this picture makes me happy until today.

Zonia with her gelato fix too!! (:

It was another evening which we had dinner in the hotel. Our hotel, Bon Alpina, was beautiful. Our favorite hotel of all. It was homely, cosy, situated higher above and away from the shopping district.

View of the church in front of the hotel at night after dinner. 

And some shots of the florist house next to the hotel!! Their flowers are on sale at the lawn and never closes!!! You can't do that in Singapore.. Your flowers would be gone.

Spent Sunday with babylove who just landed back from his Europe trip last evening. So thankful that he's home safely. As most of you know, I'm in the tourism industry, so unfortunate travel news really affect us emotionally and mentally too. We knew about the news at 11+PM over our Abacus's sales and marketing group chat. Let's all pray that justice been brought to the passengers of MH17 soon.

Spent 2 hours at the yoga school with Zonia on Sunday morning and babylove came to pick me after that for lunch. Sheila says my photographer is back! Hahaha so today was him taking photos of some of my advertorials :P

Wearing Hollyhoque's Elegance at ease tiers cropped tank for Sundate!

We had lunch at Yhingthai Palace Restaurant instead of intended Cafe Pal cause Cafe Pal was close for some minor renovations. Had to get my Thai cuisine fix cause I was craving for Thai food this afternoon! Hahaha! Yhingthai's really popular! Told my friends and they were like I know Yhingthai la!! Wished I found out about them earlier! Babylove's aunt (she's Thai!) and uncle runs this Thai restaurant so do drop by if you are looking for real good and authentic Thai food in Singapore!

It's my second time there and I would always start my meal with their red ruby! Best red ruby ever!! We also ordered my favorite stuffed chicken wings.

The chicken were deboned and stuffed with mushrooms, asparagus, prawn and chicken meat and fried!
