My great European honeymoon never fails to bring the fondest memories to mind. Indeed, when we considered the various countries to go for our honeymoon, Europe seemed like the place where everyone would go to. This decision to go to Europe was definitely a wise one.
Had the chance to see many beautiful places and tick off many things in my bucket list. Oh yes, and be with the man of my life.
In France, outside Notre Dame
Definitely difficult to pack for 20 odd days of winter without reusing stuff.
Black puffy coat (loved that I could cinch my waist, lest risk looking like the Michelin man)
Turquoise knit turtle neck, Uniqlo
Purple tartan scarf, Taobao (the hugely popular Chinese equivalent of Gmarket)
Red leggings, Taobao
Waterproof boots, North Face (best buy ever! Kept me dry, warm and stylish at all times)
At the Louvre with the signature glass pyramid
We ventured to colder places, and one of my favourite places was the Black Forest of Titisee, Germany. It was picturesque and of course, cold.
See what I mean? It was where I totally wanted to be a Uniqlo ambassador. At SGD$39.90, the waterproof, wind-proof pants was what kept me warm and dry every single time. Fyi, this is apparently the place where blackforest cake was created.
Rolled up my North Face boots (see what I mean about versatility?), put on some ear-muffs, and a red checkered scarf, I was all set to challenge the cold of Kleine Scheidgg in Switzerland.
My childhood dream – to do a snow angel in actual snow. The kid in me died from happiness to fulfil this dream, especially for a kid from the tropics.
Near the Flower Clock in Geneva
Braved the cold winds to take a picture to show something besides my big fluffy black coat. A grey turtleneck woolen dress , printed cardigan, both from Uniqlo and a purple scarf from H&M. I had to hold onto my scarf and dress as the winds were absolutely wild.
The Colosseum, Rome, Italy
Here, I tried to inject a bit of colour by wearing cobalt blue jeans. Oh yes, I was using my new Desigual satchel but it’s not very visible under that big fluffy coat.
In Lucerne, Switzerland
My husband said I looked like a kid. Indeed, I was going for the preppy look – white turtleneck, navy sweater, both from Uniqlo and winter shorts from Taiwan. What makes it more colleagiate was probably the orange Ferragamo hairband I got at an incredible steal – EU$40 at the outlet store.
At the Harry Potter Studio Tour, UK
It was such a treat to see all the beautiful sets from the Harry Potter series. I would strongly recommend the butterbeer as it is really every bit as tasty as described by J K Rowling. My Desigual satchel can be seen a little more clearly here and I was wearing a striped knitted cardigan from Primark with a black and white checker board scarf.
Recollecting all these memories is definitely a blast from the past for me.
