Europe Trip

Europe Trip

By Aruna

Hi Everyone,

I am back from a fabulous trip to Europe. ย I was fortunate enough to be sent to UK and Spain (Asturias) on work and I jumped on this opportunity to make a vacation out of it along with my husband. So, after 3 weeks of my official trip, my husband joined me in Barcelona and we visited Rome and Paris too. Here are some pictures from the trip. Hope you like them ๐Ÿ™‚


Just a little more about my travels โ€“ we stayed at pretty economical hotels the entire time. Our funda was that we would be out pretty much the entire day and as long as the hotel was safe, clean and had decent amenities, we would do all right. In Rome, we stayed in an apartment which turned out to be a pretty good deal. Not very expensive, close to the Metro station, super market and a couple of tourist places. ย The apartment was clean and had utensils and stuff if we wanted to do our own cooking. Tea, coffee all that was also provided. In Barcelona, my husband Sachin had booked us right in the heart of the partying and the busy streets and we loved it. It was close to Marina, all the shopping, the fabulous places for food and drinks. The crowd was amazing. In Paris again, we were close to the Eiffel Tower and the Metro and it was super easy to get around. A lot of walking everywhere. I didnโ€™t lose any weight but somehow my friends said I looked thinner so yayyyyyyy..:) I am super thrilled of course.

  4. Lovely pics Aruna and u looking cool in all ur looks….u seem to have loads of chillaxing fun *happy dance* *happy dance* *happy dance*

    1. Thanks TA. yeah we had a great time..10 days vacation but a few weeks before tat official which was loads of fun too. Had taken abt 300 to 400 pics in all. difficult to choose just a few some times rofl

  5. wow..You look great in all the pics.

    Yeah, it makes so much of sense to stay in standard hotels in these places coz you are out most of the time anyway. All you need is a clean, comfortable place to stay.
    I feel like packing my bags and going some where right now..:)

    1. ya really no? and in these places becos everything is so expensive its best to stay comfortable than pay huge amounts of money for water and coffee in the room. In Asturias, Barcelona and Paris they don’t keep water or a coffee machine either in the room. its very normal thing in Indians hotels :). but its ok. we bought bottles of water, tried new places for breakfast so that was a good thing. don’t want to get too stingy when you have spent so much money already *whistle*

  6. wooooo………looking like you had a wonderful time….nice pics aru you look good in all pics *haan ji* *haan ji*

  7. Lovely pics… I am sure you must enjoyed every place in Europe… did u get a chance to visit the Louvre museum in Paris??
    we can hope a haul post from you as well from your shopping during the trip, eh?!

    1. Yeahhh we went. Saw the Mona Lisa. (Frankly i thot it is a bit too hyped) ๐Ÿ˜› roamed the museum for abt 5 hrs. Went thru the gardens, champs elysees, arc de triomphe et al. Loved it all. Thanks.

      Yeah definitely a post on my Haul. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Cool….
        I too think Mona Lisa a bit hyped… but i am more interested in the architecture of the museum…
