Three cities in 2 weeks

So after the two weeks in the west coast, we continued our journey to western europe and headed to Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels. Paris was gorgeous, Amsterdam was touristy, but Brussels was quaint and sweet - literally with belgian waffles and chocolates everywhere you turn.

Its amazing how many beautiful buildings and architectures in Paris that really after a day or two, you feel really lost in between them, what I really meant is really they all look alike ! Everywhere you turn, there are the same buildings that you already saw like 15 minutes ago or perhaps we just went back to the same spot as we circling the city. Check out the wall sticker that we got from one of the store.

The Lion

The magnificent and mysterious Louvre

Watchalookinat !

We split the Paris stays and headed to Amsterdam when Francis got a chance to meet his old BFF after 10 years, the picture below is one of the building on the canal not the Jumbo Rest. in HK.

Then Brussels afterwards to check out the old cobble stones city with their famous chocolate and yet we found this picture right in the center of the gay area.

Mr. Croco Disc in the Art District

Trained back to Paris and spent 2 more full days and finally had the last dinner right inside the smallest studio apartments that we ever stayed at yet we managed to create a dining room.

AU REVOIR ! and won't be back for a while !

Here we are again !

We know it has been almost 8 months since the last time we actually blog BUT we promised to keep it updated. It has been a busy year exploring new things here in Asia. Well, let's get it started then !

So that day after went to the Chanel Mobile Art, that very evening we flew to San Francisco starting our two months US-Europe vacations !
SF and LA were the two cities the first two cities, same old same, same fog and clouds in the bautiful SF bay and same attitude in LA but we're glad we did the trip, caught up with some good friends so it was totally worth it !

We rented a studio apartment in downtown SF with a huge walking closet and full kitchen, it was pretty big for a studio around 800 sq. ft.

In LA, we pampared ourselves by staying at the fully renovated SOFITEL right across from Beverly Center and the good thing is we can actually take a quick cab ride to weho (really don't want to drink+drive again). After the two weeks west caost trip, we jet to NY for a couple of nights before heading to Paris and got to experience two of the newest boutique airlines : Virgin America and L'avion.
