Last one for Europe 2012!
I realised that I haven’t finished blogging about my European trip last year. Oh well. Almost done though! There’s only Amsterdam left
Titling this “Day 7” because although we went to Amsterdam on this day (December 5), in the morning, Mum had to go present a paper at the conference in… some tiny tiny German town not far from Freiburg. I don’t remember where anymore. haha
We spent five nights in Freiburg, Germany. It’s just a small town so there isn’t much to see there. Ended up mostly doing day trips out to various places – Zurich, Strasbourg, Titisee. And one day we just lazed around in Freiburg because it was too darned cold.
I did the most wandering on the morning of Day 3 in Freiburg, before we headed to Titisee. This view greeted me in the morning:
I’m really proud of this picture because it’s not every day that someone tells me this is one of the nicest photos they’ve ever seen.
So let’s get into this Europe trip. (Don’t worry, it won’t be anywhere near as long-winded as my Japan trip posts. haha)
We took a day trip into Zurich, Switzerland and hopped on a city tour.
I feel oddly obligated to finish all these posts about Paris (and London?) before Christmas. I don’t know why.
This post is going to be all about the Louvre so if art doesn’t interest you, er… go read something else. haha
The results of a day spent wandering about the touristy spots of Paris alone until evening. Nice to know that I’m capable of finding my way around alone if I want to. But I don’t want to again. Not alone. No way.
I don’t know if I should spell it as “Gent” or “Ghent.” But since I’ve labelled the pics with “Gent,” I’ll stick with that spelling in this post.
Gent is nice – if you haven’t already become inured to the sight of old European buildings, cathedrals and the like. Unfortunately, I am, somewhat. We were only there two nights, which was good in my opinion, since there wasn’t a great deal to see – especially in the cold, cold winter.
And this is a clock in my room. (I just thought the picture looked nice. *shrugs*)
