Europe, here we come!

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to travel more in 2013. It is only January but I am so pleased that we have 2 trips lined up for March! First up is a short 2D1N trip to Malacca with a bunch of my colleagues. The next is a 2-weeks trip to Europe! Woohoo! I’ve never been to Europe save for England so I’m excited beyond words.

Coincidentally, Singapore Airlines was having a promotion on their Singapore-London airfares at $1,268 all-inclusive. Conditions:

  • Book by 31 Jan.
  • Travel between 1 Feb and 30 May.
  • Min stay 3 days, max stay 14 days.
  • SIN-LHR valid on SQ308 (dep: 0900hrs) and SQ318 only (dep: 1255hrs)

We went online very excitedly and quickly booked our return tickets. Yeay! We haven’t really planned on places to visit yet but definitely London and Paris. Might head down to Rome but not sure if we should. Any tips? Recommendations on places to go, places to eat? Send them my way please! 🙂

  1. Visit La Duree in Paris for the most well-known macaroons in the world. Their Brioche French Toast is good too. Expect long queues outside Louis Vuitton/Longhchamp and have your passport with you to prove you are NOT from China and for tax refund purposes. There is a limit on how many bags you can buy. Otherwise Galeries Lafayette on Champs Elysee is a good place to shop. Go to Primark in London for cheap clothes and Bayswater for roast duck. Make a wish at the Trevi fountain in Rome, it’s supposed to work! Go for the Da Vinci exhibit in Rome, you’ll be awed by his imagination. Milan & Florence are good places to buy leather goods. Leaning Tower of Pisa is worth a visit.

  2. Forgot to add that pizzas and calzones in Italy are a definite must-try! Watch out for the flirtacious Italian men who will flirt with females aged 3-103! Baguette in Paris is really very different from what we get in Singapore, just butter and baguette will keep you very happy. Take the Eurostar from London to Paris, fast and comfy.

  3. Just came across your blog and decided to comment, cuz I love Europe! 🙂 It depends on whether you are one who wants to covers a city in detail, or whether you just want to cover the main attractions. I can spend 1 week in Paris and another week in London, and still have not covered everything. If you want to do Rome as well, then it’s pretty much 4 days each location, can’t really do much. Besides, you can leave Rome for another trip just covering Rome, Florence, Venice and Milan. That’s another 2 weeks in itself.
