A trip to one of the best wine regions in the world would not be complete, without a proper Chianti wine tour! Prior to the trip, I have received a few quotes from local tour companies on a half day wine tasting tour in the Chianti region and finally, I opted to go with one of the tours offered in Viator. It was definitely one of the highlight of our days in Florence! The meet up point was near the Santa Maria Novella church, and since we were early, we decided to do a little bit of sight seeing, and on the way, found a restaurant that serves Chinese food! After being in Italy for 2 weeks, our Asian taste… View Post

Traveling to Europe this time round, I found myself to be much better prepared. There are essential items that needs to be packed like sweaters and clothing to keep you warm, hats, and sunnies. Then, there are also other travel essentials for women during cold weather, like these ones below! I’ve personally used them and found them to be very helpful.

For dry cold weather, it works really well in moisturizing our dry skin and doesn’t even leave grease on our faces! It’s so good I didn’t even have to put on my foundation! I used the skin cream as a base and just use compact… View Post

Upon exiting the train, we felt no comfort in being surrounded by a lot of other tourists and locals. I had a quick look at the instructions from our AirBNB host on how to get to the apartment that we’ve booked, and found out that we have had to take… View Post

2015 has been an amazing year for me, with plenty of fond memories and bucket loads of adventures. As it is with every year, here’s a quick recap on our travel experiences. 1. Hanoi will always remind me of egg coffee, Vietnamese BBQ, Chang Beer and the fact that I got scammed by a taxi driver. 2. I was really looking forward to Halong Bay but eventually found it absolutely overrated. 3. Ninh Binh was a pleasant surprise and the hike up Mua Cave took my breath away – literally, with the hike (and of course the amazing view!) 4. Phuket will always remind me of our very first dinner by the beach experience. 5. Landed in Rome with a… View Post

Florence is by far, our favourite city in Italy. There’s so much of culture packed into this city and we have to say, amazing food too that you’ll never have to think about what to eat in Florence! We’ve spent countless hours just browsing through FourSquare for the next eatery, bars and gelataria. Out of all that we’ve tried and tasted, the ones listed below are our favourites. So if you’re thinking about what to eat in Florence, try our selection! What to eat in Florence for Breakfast Ditta Artiginiale Cozy, welcoming and non-Italian!
