Bucket list #3 Japan

This beautiful and mysterious island , full of trees and tiny appartments. This contrast between the tiny spaces in the big city and the traditional houses back in the countryside…

I am a food lover , and don’t get me wrong but the food there (as I imagine it) is amazing ! Just sushi already I mean come on !!! The soups , salads … I have always been curious about their mushroom soups ! They look a bit weird don’t you think ???

Should we mention the huge culture shock ? Mangas, Pop music,Geisha, Kawaii stuff, video games ??? I mean Japan is a big cultural shock ? I mean do I need to even say more haha .

This big country mostly surrounded by trees , mountains :  THE REAL FRESH HAIR. The mountains and snow during winter is truly my fantasy , i would die to ski there and watch the aurora borealis at night. Visit the capital , full of culture. Check out the gorgeous places that deserves to be visited.

DISNEYLAND PARIS

My parents bought me a week-end at Disneyland Paris for my 20th birthday ! It was really good , obviously crownded as always , but magical ! I love the atmosphere !

To be honest , the lines for the main park were very LONG , we waited 1h30 for the Indiana Jones rollercoaster , even though it was my first lil loop, it was hard to wait. After this we were exhausted haha , we watched the 2 parades , the disney characters parade and the disney princesses parade , I loved it ! I didn’t stay for the fireworks , at 22H we were at the hotel room watching TV ! I love the Disney atmosphere , we felt like it was somewhere else , the details for each “world” is deeply researched , I LOVE IT. (psycho)

The second park , Disney Studio was really nice , not very crownded , less attractions but it was good , we took a fastpass for the Hollywood Tower attraction , after this we walked around and decided to do the Rock’n’roll rollercoaster … WHAT A MISTAKE , I THOUGHT I WOULD DIE , Adrenaline is not my friend , I hate this feeling , the first part was so fast we couldn’t here anyone scream at the start and obviously one big loop MEHHHH. I had to sit down few minutes after it to get over it hahahah. We did few attractions around , they’re all nice for any ages. I truely recommand this park if you want to spend a morning or an afternoon at an amusement park. I loved the studio atmosphere , it truely felt like a real one.

I took some pictures of both parks , not in the attractions of course : NO TIME. I had to convert them (because it’s a dumb CR2 format , if you have advices about that PLEASE TELL ME) so the quality is not the BEST, but I’ll post some of them on Flickr soon , so the quality will be optimum. I let you check out my beautiful mosaïc because 4 pics aint enough ;D


 


 

My trip to Crete ! (VLOG)

Check out my impressions and advices !

I came wednesday at 12pm from my trip to Crete ! Obvious I was not alone my lovely family was there too , we spent 1 week there. I will not talk about the hotel unless you request it 😉

  • DAY 1 :   Up at 3am to catch our flight at 6am (TOO EARLY !) , we went at the airport very early for some reasons , it was a 3 hours flight from LYON to HERAKLION. Unfortunately , it was a low-cost flight , my first and last experience ! small chairs , no space , the flight was full and everything super expensive.  ANYWAY, we landed at 10am , so right after we had a bus to take us to our hotel. It took approximately 1h30 to get there , it was really hot and sunny ! Our hotel was beautiful with flowers, palm trees and lemon trees everywhere. We were all very hungry , so we catched some sandwiches and because I’m smart , I took a sandwich thinking it was mozzarella …. NAY ! Its Crete here so it was FETA MEHHH ! My mom ate it for me ! Right after , we took a 4 hours nap then pool then resting then lazyness. haha
  • DAY 2 : We got up at 9 , to get our breakfast ! Then we walked around the city (SISSI), also we rented a car sowe could find a sand beach. There was rocks everywhere so we found one and there were actually many , mostly in South and West of Crete. We discovered that people drive super fast there ! It says that Crete is the European car-crash. For lunch, we stopped by a cute place , they call it “taverna” there, it a relax and family kind of restaurant , cheaper as well. I ate for the first time a “Gyros pita”, best THING EVER ! The meat and pita tasted so good ! The Tzatziki was really good too , it was unbelievable !
  • DAY 3 : Visit of Malia , the “young” city , where there are mostly young people ! Quad and motocycles (to rent for 10€ a day! ) everywhere ! Not so much happened just Beach & Pool day ! Taverna for lunch 😛
  • DAY 4 : Visit of Heraklion, we walked around an old market , where I got a silver bracelet with the square infinite symbol (Symbolize Love life / Infinite love) to my boyfriend ;D. You could shop traditional products like olive oil and food, also jewerly (gold & silver). We had the chance to visit a chapel , very cute and painted in white everywhere. We spent the morning there , we stopped by a Starbucks , then we found a sand beach near. Fun fact , it was right next to the airport , we could see and hear the planes ! After 1 hour we came back home, the weather was too hot for us !
  • DAY 5: Visit Of Nikolaos, ancient city with a nice port. Walked around , we found an orthodoxe church if im not wrong, it was really beautiful, colorful and drawings everywhere. We stayed there until lunch then Beach & Pool day.
  • DAY 6 : Visit of “Zeus Cave” aka  “Ideon Andron” , it was 1h driving from SISSI , It was really nice because we got to see the center of Crete , very green and a bit colder than the coast. when we got there , I obvious forgot to bring sneakers … not so smart because we had to climb 300 meters. Not a nice road …. I had flip flops, it took us 40 minutes. We could climb with a donkey up there , but I didn’t think it was nice for the donkey. The cave was smaller than I thought , we had to go down , we came from 40° to 16° ! Let me tell you it was sooo nice down there haha ! In the water , we could see many coins , so I made a wish (I won’t tell ya ;P) , afterwards , we grabbed a frozen yogurt ! Really nice and tasty with a beautiful view of the plateau (also the cashier hehe) , I loved this place ! Then Beach & Pool (lets not change the good habits)
  • DAY 7 : Last day , we didn’t move, we walked around the city to get some presents for our family and postcards. We had to leave at 18h so until then we went to the beach & pool , I had the time to take a shower , then our mini-bus would take us back to the airport. Our flight was at 21h , we walked around the duty free section , we wondered , is it really duty free ? because the prices where almost the same, that doesn’t make any sense since the taxes there are 23%. So bad flight , I watched “La famille Belier” and “The Lord of the Ring: The return of the King” , we got home at 00h30.

To conclude; this week was a good experience, I liked it , I’ve always wanted to see a bit of Greece, so now I can give you advices ! First : Mosquito spray because THEY ARE TONS ! Second : Get a car or quad whatever as long as you can drive around , there are some many places to see ! Third : SUN CREAM , very important , the sun there is WILD!

Here is few pics of where I was in Crete, if you want to see them in HD go on my flickr
