Visiting New York City, also referred to as “New York”, “NYC”, “The Big Apple”, or just “The City” by locals, the most populous city in the United States, is our dream come true. New York City is a center for media, culture, food, fashion, art, research, finance, and trade.

The human bird shall take his first flight, filling the world with amazement, all writings with his fame, and bringing eternal glory to the nest whence he sprang. ⎯ Leonardo da Vinci.   Flew 13,869 Km away from home was amazing experiences. The excitement, the curiosity, the nervousness, all mixed together in your brain and spread over all of your body; specially when our ANA Plane landed safely in LAX Airport. It was the first time we put our feet in American continent.

All right… Here we go again. One year past so quick! Memories of our Euro Trip last year are still fresh in my mind, it was quite a long and exhausting trip, but another bucket-list must be ticked this year! So..

After 2 hour flight from Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci International Airport we arrived in our 5th county of our Euro Trip, Brussels, Belgium. Apart from its famous chocolates and beers there are many attractions that most visitors cannot begin to imagine. Brussels is a centre of European culture, officially nicknamed ‘the European Village’, with almost 90 museums, beautiful parks, fascinating walks, trendy restaurants and bars. There is a lot to learn about the history of the city, the architecture, the Belgian obsession with comic strips, and the art of chocolate

The fourth county of our Euro Trip is Italy. We flew from Charles de Gaulle Airport Paris to Leonardo da Vinci International Airport Rome Italy with EasyJet. While we chasing for our flight, we having a bad experience with the staff of Charles de Gaulle Airport.

Luckily the other staff allowed us to check in.  If this happens to you, just

Amsterdam, the first city we visited in our Euro Trip. 13 hours of non stop flight made us a bit jet lag however everything was OK when the plane had landed at 8 o’clock in the morning at Schiphol Airport. Since we arrived very early, we had a plenty of time to walk around in the airport, to know the area, the dutch sign and how their public transportation work.

It’s my second Hong Kong traveling. Last year it just a short business trip, but this time it totally awesome holiday. One full weeks, a plenty of time to explore the busiest city in Asia.
