I left the morning of the 5th day with this handsome chap in the photo below. He lives in Florence so he was going to give me a lift there. He also offered to take 2 other guys in his car so it was pretty cramped up and thank God all our luggage fit into his Saab.
Dunno what happened both of us ended up with bunny teeth!! Bleah!
The ride out of Frankfurt was pretty smooth despite the so-called morning traffic. The ride in Germany was really boring, with not much to see on both sides of the road, so boring till I fell asleep. I didn’t realise it until I snorted and it was loud enough to wake me up and my driver to notice!!! He looked into the mirror to check on me and I pretended like nothing happened! hahahahahaha…so embarrassing!!
We stopped after 3 hours for a break & pee stop and to my shock, we had to pay 50 cents Euro to use the toilet! Shiats! Bought this apple juice….was frizzy of course….what else?
Crossover to Switzerland was easy peasy, no need to chop passport oso. After crossing over, it’s tunnel after tunnel..and I noticed the driver was driving very slow (100 km/h is considered slow in his standard!!) as they r really strict there with speed cameras everywhere!
Lunch stop was at Marche. I can’t believe they allow customers to bring in their pets into the restaurant. Talk about hygiene…bleah! Good thing was, we didn’t have to pay to use the toilet here! Phew..
The scenery became really beautiful as we draw nearer to the Italian border, with lakes and mountains along the road and of course tunnels…tunnels…tunnels…
Once we entered Italy, our driver sped up and we were almost flying!! (as you can witness thru the pic of the speedometer!) hahaha..
Upon reaching Florence it was pouring cats & dogs so I couldn’t go out…stuck in the hotel, I had cupnoodles with my dried chicken meat (yes Amah lugged that along) and did some planning for my shopping the next day. Good thing the bus station was just 1 minute walk from the hotel! Cool!
The following was what I fell in love when I saw it on the display at the Florence store. However they didn’t have a new one in stock so I bought this in Rome. Too bad for the sales guy at the Florence store cos he was really very patient and nice to me while I made him bring me all sorts of designs to choose from and at the end I didn’t buy off him.
