Nothing much to blog about LA. Just few pictures on the food we took.
We took a 3hours plus train to Vancouver from Seattle early morning. Its a nice train ride with free wifi on board. If you intend to do the same too, remember to go to the train station early to get the tickets cuz its hassle - First, queue to get physical ticket, then join the second queue to get seat number. Therafter, join the third queue to check in the luggage. Also, bring breakfast cuz there's no cafes at the train station, only coin operated snack machines.
Granville Island @ Vancouver! i love this place. Its basically a marketplace with fresh foods , eateries and buskers. Take the river taxi over to the 'island' which is like a 5 minutes leisurely ride.
Zermatt in Switzerland.
Next stop - LA!

Anyway, since this time, its just the two of us, for a change - and it was planned by tyre! all by tyre! finally after being together for years, he finally planned a holiday for us!
Here's the big travel plan - Seattle, Vancouver and LA! Yeah.. we love LA so much we are going back again! All in 2 weeks!
Here's Seattle first! First tots of Seattle - Sleepless in Seattle (the movie starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks) and Home of Starbucks!! Overall, Seattle's a really nice place to wander around. We opt to wander around by foot and not driving since we stayed in the city centre.
Pike Place Market - one of the Top 10 places to go in Seattle. Its basically a wet market but sooo bustling with locals, tourists, activities. The flowers sold there are soooo prettty and affordably priced - USD4 for a whole bunch. "they" say must look at the bronze pig while at pike market cuz its symbolic - what a let down, its located at a corner and quite forgettable.
Next stop - Vancouver!
Haven logged in for quite a long while and I have so much to blog about stuffs in the past month. Then i realised i haven finished switzerland. So here's it - the last leg of the trip - Zurich.
Nothing much in Zurich other than its a nice pretty city, as like other parts of Switzerland - its all really pretty, nice and clean, but awfully expensive :( Some sights around Zurich...
And , during summertime, they have this flea mart in the heart of the city. I love basking in the bustle of flea mart. And i chanced upon this! - Vintage laces!!! *love love love* to my parents, its a waste of money but to me, its gem!!! Pretties!!!
That sums up our whole trip ! :D

Other sights around Lucerne...
Last and final place to explore - Zurich!
Milan was like a last minute thing. Mum was chatting with her fren who then suggested we pop by milan since its a short 3 hr train ride away - and so we go!
I can go on and on about Bern but then i will never finish this post - so i shall let the picture do the talking! Enjoy!

The key attractions includes that huge chair with broken leg (UN something), the huge water jet that goes up to 120+metre, the flower clock, 3statues @ the park, flea mart, old town and patek museum (my dad enjoied this the most). Wished i could write down the exact names of these places but i cant remember.
We also visted this church, St Chapelle ( i think that's the name), in the old town. Its a beautiful church and worth the money paying entrance fee to enter the towers - climb the narrow winding steps up where the view is breathtaking!
