Bro and I were wondering (and hoping) if we would have the same yummy breakfast provided before we leave to catch our train. Thought our chances are slim, since we might have offended the owner’s mum in some way that we still couldn’t figured, but she still brought breakfast into our room for us!!! Hehe! Bade farewell to the beautiful Venice and here we come, Florence!
It was yours truly’s birthday eve and it was also the day where thousands of Singaporeans were sending our founding father off in the heavy rain. I may not physically be in Singapore, but I was still aware of all the news happening there and wore black for the day as well.
Anyway, arrived in Florence after a 2-hour train ride. Bro almost brought me on the wrong direction while we were finding our way to the apartment! Luckily I realised it, if not we would have made an even longer detour with our luggage -_- I realised it happened a few times when he actually got the directions wrong and I got it right instead~ Guess it’s true that I really can navigate better abroad somehow! Lyn will definitely agree! Haha!
Found our apartment and this time round, it’s on the third floor of a the building without lift again!!! Thank goodness the owners helped us with our luggage again~ The apartment belongs to these 2 friendly guys (we were wondering if they are gay couple) who are both designers! They both work from home, hence they are around most of the time. As a result, we also hid in our own room whenever we are back ._. Very shy to mingle with angmohs!
Headed out to explore the nearby area and there actually isn’t much in Florence; it isn’t exactly a tourist-sy place. We merely included it as a city to visit because Nad said it’s the best place for outlet shopping! Haha! Told my brother it’s a MUST for me to visit 😛
It was a short day because there wasn’t much to see or many places to go for the day. We just walked around randomly to the central area while my brother was busy looking for bridge, which is supposed to be a tourist attraction spot~
And that’s really all for the day. I remember we ended the day with an early dinner (cum lunch) at a random cafe/restaurant which is the cheapest we could find. Spent like S$5 – S$8 on really awful sandwich and pasta. Maybe I should have chosen the pizza, but I was really sick of pizzas and pasta by then! Damn sick of Italy’s food in other words -.-“
