Il grand tour Europa. Day 0.

rain 30 °C

This is it, I am leaving for my Eat-Play-Love adventure tonight. (or Play-Play-Play to be exact, not sure about eating that much, and I am considering to be celibate......hm...anyway...) When I left office and waved goodbye to my colleagues this afternoon, I had an overwhelming thrill charged though my nerves, and while I walked down the overpass from the immigration tower to Wanchai MTR station, I ALMOST wanted to cry...because, NO WORKING for six weeks!!!!!!!!! WOHOOOAH!!!!!!That's a record-breakingly long vacation. (and I secretly laughed at those office ladies who had that TGIF/ ready-to-get-pissed faces, because you know what, my weekend is 43 days longer than you all!!!!!!Take that!)

Packing was a nightmare, and for a moment I wished I were a man. How do other female backpackers pack their stuff into a shoe box, I wondered, while my 25-inch luggage almost exploded?? I had an ideal plan since I bought this backpack with wheels, so I could use it both ways - as a backpack especially when I wander around the European cobbled streets - but reality strikes - when I put the bag on my shoulders, I spent 30 second struggling to stand up, unfortunately I was just sitting there on the floor like an idiot - it's too heavy for me. As Miss P would say: "Fail.com".

After I checked in my 19.6kg luggage, I leisurely strolled to the lounge as usual, and picked up all the travel magazines there. I especially like The Sunday Times Travel as their photography standard is awesome. A lot of times, when I saw some really good destination shots, I would cry out a little bit inside, wishing I could go there.... Tonight I saw this amazing pic

AND THIS TIME I AM GOING THERE!!!!!!!!!!! How cool?!?!?

Okay, time to board. See you all in six weeks. Wish me luck xx
