It was my first time in Europe. This part of the world is different from my side of the hemisphere in several ways. So try to understand the thrill I felt and the pleasure the trip gave me. Allow me some hangover as well. Travelling can be exhausting. Plus I’m now back to work. Busy busy me – don’t have enough time to pen much these days. I’ll be writing more again as soon as I find the time.
My best experience during the tour: Getting to the Top of Europe. In the heart of Jungfrau/Wilderswil region – one of the most visited places in the Swiss Alps.
Switzerland is a very beautiful country. It’s one of the most expensive in the world, too. The Jungfraujoch ticket cost around P12000: close to my whole month salary. Yet we were allowed only two hours at “the top of Europe.”
I spent the most time in Kensington-London because it was the meeting place of the tour group. The area houses good museums and splendid Gothic architectural buildings.
There are a lot of things to love and enjoy in London.
It was a Sunday when we touched the grounds of Germany. The shops were closed. The charming town we visited was quiet. Peaceful.
I liked Paris the least. The city isn’t clean. It reminds me of Manila somehow. The Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Museum are overrated, in my opinion. Though they say both of them look better at night with lights.
Btw, do you know the people in Netherlands are awesomely tall?
Honestly, the modern buildings, infrastructure in those countries are not so different from what we have here in the Philippines. Also, when it comes to natural, beautiful places – my country can be a front runner. I like Europe very much nonetheless. The people may not be warm and friendly, but they are far more disciplined – and honest I suppose. I may write about my observations in another post.
