EUROPE 2019

Preparing for 2019 travel to Europe again DIY style. Except London, the cities chosen were those which had not been visited before.



Managed to grab reasonable price return air tickets (KUL-LIS, LHR-KUL) online from British Airways at RM2800 per pax which was much cheaper than purchasing at the much hype MATTA Fair September 2018 (selling at RM3300). So do your homework by checking online before buying anything at MATTA Fair.

From Lisbon to final destination London via trains (Renfe, Trenitalia, ICE and Eurostar) except Barcelona to Rome. This leg of the journey is by air (Vueling).

Accommodation were booked online using the hotel site and booking.com.

Bryggen beautiful colorful buildings....

And of course seafood and its menu...


When in Bergen do visit Fløibanen/Mount Fløyen accessible by funicular. Its an iconic attraction no visitors should be without.


Fjord Cruise...


Tickets can be bought at the tourist center. Sadly the cruise we took could not proceed to the fjords as there were ice in the water😞.


We were also unable to experience the Norway In A Nutshell Tour due to heavy snow😞. Anyway we enjoyed our stay in Bergen. Would love to be here again.
