Europe

As mentioned in my previous blog post(s), the hubby and I visited a Michelin Star Restaurant in Paris, France.

Reason being, we always wanted to try a Michelin Star Restaurant (and dear Tim Ho Wan does not count!). It is also because we thought it would be nice to enjoy a fine (pun intended) meal in Paris (the city of love!) as our honeymoon meal!

While we had initially wanted to go well, budget, not too ex, the odds were definitely not in our favour.

We used the old faithful google to search for Michelin Star Restaurants where excellent keywords such as Cheapest, Affordable and Michelin Star Restaurants in Paris caught our eye.

Needless to say L'Agape soon caught our eyes with it's 35 Euros menu. We decided to make our reservations at L'Agape for the second last day of our trip: 1st May.

But like I mentioned earlier, things did not go as planned. Because, goondu us did not think nor used our numbskulls. 1st May = Labour Day = Public Holiday = No set meals = Expensive meal!

Jeng jeng jeng.

Paris was the final leg of #nadskaihoneymoon! We spent Day 17-21 there before we flew back to Singapore!

Paris was also the second most anticipated leg of our trip! We had booked a nice dinner at a Michelin Star Restaurant in Paris and well, I was going to redeem my honeymoon present from Skai aka c(hubby) in Chanel! WHEEEE! It'll be mainly a pictorial spam of Paris! Blogged about the sightseeing version in the previous Thursday's Travels post. Here is the food version!

Foie gras, steak, escargots and a beer. Life is good.

On our last day, we decided to treat ourselves to a better meal. From White Wine..

IMG_2302

To Steak and Fries

IMG_2299

To more Foie Gras

IMG_2308

To my favourite Scallop Risotto

And a rather sinful Chocolate Lava Cake...

It was much rather sinful. But extremely satisfying. Paris was delightful for our tummies! But our favourite meal would have to be at the Michelin Star Restaurant which deserves an entry on it's own..

It's been a while since there was a Thursday's Travels piece and I decided it's about that I moved my lazy ass!

We're coming to an end of #nadskaihoneymoon! Final two legs! Honestly, we never really had much of a desire to visit Milan. I was more interested in Amsterdam and Paris while Skai aka c(hubby) was more keen on Venice and Florence. But for us, Milan was essentially a pitstop for us before heading to Paris.

Before I begin with my picture spam, just like to share some basic costs.

We stayed in the tiniest Airbnb ever. It was quite cheap though. We paid SGD$230 for 2 nights stay. (though we only checked in late that day. Basically we had about 1.5 days in Milan)

Because we arrived late at night, we decided to sleep in and explore the next day.

The weather was pretty gloomy that day and even started pouring right after this picture was taken.

I feel that I'm extremely tardy in clearing my travel logs about my honeymoon in Europe! In a bid to clear as much as possible, I decided to shorten the Florence logs!

We loved the Florence leg of the trip! This was also the stop that we stayed the longest. Some of the places we visited were:

SPACE Factory Outlet

IMG_0453

If you are a shopaholic, you can't visit Europe without visiting an outlet mall. We visited TWO in Florence.

IMG_0479

SPACE Outlet isn't the most accessible place ever. We took a long train ride there and had to wait for a cab at the train station. We waited for close to an hour for a cab!

SPACE Outlet sells mainly Prada and Miu Miu items. Upon reaching SPACE, you'll be given a ticket where you'll be 'reserving' your items using the number on the ticket. Tickets run out fast so do be sure to choose fast before your items are gone!

Prada generally is more affordable in Italy. I scored a few good buys! Bought a bag and a wallet!

The Mall

IMG_0507

If you only have time for one outlet, I'll recommend The Mall. This huge area has brands such as TODS, Prada, Miu Miu (you can skip SPACE Outlet if you're heading here), YSL, Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Burberry, Dior, Fendi etc. Just like SPACE, most places would offer a ticket for you to purchase your items.

There is also a Tax Refund area at The Mall. As I've already shopped at SPACE, I didn't buy anything from The Mall. We did enjoy a leisure stroll and viewed most of the lovely items in various boutiques!

Leaning Tower of Pisa

One of the main reasons we visited Florence was that I wanted to visit the Leaning Tower Of Pisa.

IMG_0578

I had wanted to take a picture of my Leaning Tower of Pisa nanoblock with the real deal!

IMGP2512

And I did! Achievement unlocked!

Visiting the Davids

IMG_0726

There are 3 Davids in Florence.

The original David by Michelangelo is located Accademia Gallery by the way. The rest are replicas.

Taking a break and enjoying an outdoor performance.

Taking time to enjoy the view.

Enjoying an expensive dinner at Sabatini

IMG_1005

 

Courtesy of Skai's friend's recommendation, we decided to splurge on a meal at Sabatini located at Santa Maria Novella.

Known for their excellence service and flambé dishes, Sabatini did not disappoint. Definitely worthwhile to pay a visit!

Visiting the Galleries

One of the galleries we visited was the Galleria degli Uffizi which holds a great collection of Renaissance art. Do take note that the queues are crazy, would highly recommend going early and also booking a day in advance!

Doing the touristy thing. Taking pictures of everything. In this case, of a carousel.

IMG_0986

For some reason, they look more magical overseas. Also took these pictures to share with BFF who loves them!

Checking out the Duomos

IMG_0994

If I'm correct, the cathedrals and churches are called Duomos. We visited plenty during our trip! Not only is the Duomos beautiful on the outside, they are even more gorgeous in the inside!

Enjoying way too much wine.

IMG_1125

IMG_0884

IMG_0882

As mentioned in a few blog posts, wine is cheap. Well, cheaper than soft drinks! Knock yourself out!

IMG_1095

We really enjoyed our stay in Florence! Hope to be able to visit Europe in future again!

IMG_1093

 

LOL!

Will be blogging about Milan soon and after that, my final leg Paris!
