    Venice and Bibione

    After leaving Florence we went to Venice and then my brother came for us and we headed to Bibione by car. We only spent 3.5 hours in Venice and then 3 another days in Bibione to have a rest with the whole family. Venice I have been to Venice once 2 years ago. That time I went on an organized bus tour which was only for 1 day. I was really tired, since we had to sleep in the car for 2 nights and that 1 day was a rush. We saw all the famous tourist sights and even went to another island, Murano to see how the glass is…

    Pisa and Cinque Terre

    During our stay in Florence we took a day to visit Pisa and Cinque Terre. However the road wasn’t easy. But it was definitely worth to see them. Problems on the road It was raining in the morning. So I was really afraid if we could visit Pisa that day. I checked the weather forecast and it said the rain would stop in 1 hour. My mum also said this rain wouldn’t last long. I believed in it, so I decided to go. We went to Pisa by Trenitalia. From Florence it would only take 1 hour to get to Pisa. But 1 station before the destination the train stopped…

    Beautiful and simple Florence

    Our 6th city of Europe tour was Florence. Florence is an art and historical city. It is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance. The family Medici came from here, who supported the style Renaissance in 14th century. Thanks to Beatrice of Aragon, the style was introduced to Hungary during the reign of King Matthias.

There is even a leather street market here. Day 1 We arrived to Villa Constanza T1 at noon by Flixbus and where we arrived was in the…

    Historical and fascinating Rome

    We flew from Vienna to Rome on 18th and stayed there until 22nd of July. In the ancient era Italy used to be one of the strongest country. Therefore there are many historical monuments left there that visitors can see. That’s why there are many tourists as well. From the pictures I was amazed by its fountain, but the reality was a bit different. Day 1 We arrived at 4pm and got to our apartment by minibus from the airport. I was so tired after many days of running so that time I didn’t have more energy to find a route more. So we wanted to go to our apartment…

    Vienna – the medieval but powerful appearance

    After Brussels we went back to Hungary for a day to attend my graduation ceremoy on 16th July. The next day on 17th July at 6:45 we got on the bus to Vienna. We went by Flixbus and arrived to Vienna at 9:45. Vienna is a neighborhood country of Hungary and during the history the two country used to be one as Austro-Hungarian Empire. Therefore there are similarities between the two capital city’s structure, however, in my opinion I find Vienna medieval but much more luxurious and royal. After arriving we took metro and tram to our accommodation and left our luggage there. Then we went to Schönbrunn Palace by…

    Colourful Amsterdam

    After we left Brussels we went to Amsterdam for a night. Amsterdam is a city for many international students to attend higher education here. It is more colourful than just a simply university city. There are many parks, river and people would rather cycle than taking public transport. However, smoking weed is acceptable under certain condition and sexual related content is also exposed. I find it so strange that many things like that could stay in one place. Sightseeing We went there from Brussels by Ouibus and arrived at 19:15. We bought a ticket for 16 EUR for 4 people: 3 adults were only valid for 1 hour, the child’s…

Old town and Green area We arrived to Brussels in the evening of 12th July where we crashed. The next day we had 4 hours to sightsee before we headed to Amsterdam. We visited the Old Town where we saw Mannekin Pis and the Grand Place. They were in walking distance so we walked around, ate Belgique waffle and then walked to Gare du Midi. There was so many people and we had our backpack as well so we weren’t that enthusiastic…

    The unexpected change in Versailles

    The previous post was about my first day in Paris where we visited Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe and La Défense. We planned to go to Sacré Coeur and Luxembourg Garden the next day, but instead we changed it to Versailles. And we paid the price for the consequence. Versailles – the change of plan As yesterday we visited almost all of the tourist attraction and we walked till our leg fell apart, I planned to have an easier day today by visiting Sacré Coeur, Luxembourg Garden and eat something properly then go to the bus station to Brussels. However, in the morning my aunt suddenly wanted…

    Why do we get angry?

    Anger. It’s an emotion that most of us have when something doesn’t go the way we want. But what is the reason of getting angry? I have finished my thesis with a topic that I used to hate before. After the thesis I realized why we hate and anger is the source of hatred. And reversed. In this post I’m sharing this mental process. Anger result in hatred I have just finished my thesis in April and my topic was comparing Vietnamese and Korean Lunar New Year. I chose this topic because Lunar New Year had always been a holiday that I hated a lot. The date in Gregorian calendar…
