P365 TE Day 109

Stained Glass Dome of Galleries Lafayette




Travel Bite: I see the beauty and culture in shopping. But honestly, if you visit the Galleries Lafayette on Haussmann, and you look up, you'll see it too.

While you're there, don't forget to grab some Pierre Herme Macarons, and visit their Cafe at one of the top floors. There's a really nice view of Paris from there. You'll even be able to see the Eiffel Tower.

P365 TE Day 108

View of Paris from Montmarte



Travel Bite: Hello Paris! One of my favorite places in Paris is Montmarte, where you get a wonderful view of the French Capital City. On a nice day, I can just sit here, listen to the buskers play their music, and watch as life in one of my favorite places in the world goes by.

P365 TE Day 107

View of Ponte Vecchio from the Uffizi



Travel Bite: This is a very beautiful view of the Arno River and Ponte Vecchio from The Uffizi Gallery (one of the places where Photography is allowed).

Ponte Vecchio is an old bridge in Florence, known as the Gold Sellers bridge. You can come here to buy Jewelry with Florentine designs, however some have warned that the stores are mostly over-priced tourist traps. When I went the last time, I looked at Jewelry stores around and some have fair prices, so just shop with caution. If you know what you want and how much you're willing to pay for it, it shouldn't hurt.

P365 TE Day 106

Uffizi Gallery



Travel Bite: This is the courtyard outside the Uffizi Gallery. The Gallery in Florence famous for having a collection of the 4 Ninja Turtles Great Masters Leonardo da Vinci, Michelagelo Buonarroti, 
Raffaello Sanzio, and Donato di Betto Bardi (Donatello), among others.

Getting in is very difficult because lines are long and it's common for tickets to be sold out, so it's best to buy your tickets online. When we went, photography was not allowed.

P365 TE Day 105

Leaning Tower of Pisa in Transit



Travel Bite: The city of Pisa, in Italy is so small, you can actually visit the leaning tower while in transit, before moving on to your next stop. When we went, we actually dragged all our luggage with us, and just hopped in and hopped off the bus, then we were on our way. You can also opt to leave your luggage in lockers in the airport or the train station.

It was definitely a few minutes well spent. You can read my post on our side trip to the leaning tower of Pisa here.

P365 TE Day 104

Legoland Windsor



Travel Bite: With Legoland Malaysia so much closer to those of us who live in Asia, you may ask, is it still worth going to Legoland Windsor - if you find yourself in London? and I would really answer YES, if you love Lego like we do!!! 

One of our favorite rides in Legoland Windsor is Atlantis, an Underwater Submarine Ride which brings you to an under the sea Lego world complete with live fish!

You can read more about Legoland Windsor here.
