Europe and UK trip


Tomorrow will count as the end of the whole trip I am having with my classmates. Can’t imagine how am i going to pack all those stuff that i had brought with me from Singapore and the stuff that i bought during the trip.

The trip starts with Rome as the 1st destination--

A long flight from Singapore to Rome is making us tired plus we have to travel to our budget Hostel by metro in Rome, dragging all the luggage is definitely NOT what i will do if i travel alone or with my family. All you can find is stairs, stairs and more stairs in the Metro Station, but, since we are on budget, that is the only way that we can take.

Our Hostel in Rome is a good one, with internet access, clean room with heater, as well as a clean bathroom with heater. Nice and friendly owner is a plus, not rushing us for the payment and asks us to relax and we only pay for the accommodation on the 3rd day.
