We resumed our Europe tour to Milan. We reached Milan at 1045 pm and took us almost two hours to the station from the Airport. Just imagine, at that hour, we were denied by cabs and we had to literally drag our luggages to our hotel which fortunately located around 15 minutes walking distance from the station. We considered our Milan trip as a transit 1st because we didn't buy that much, and 2nd we went to the same place for 2 consecutive days: Duomo, because we have no tourist guide here, unlike our previous destinations.
But, hands down, Milan has the best architecture.And we had our best coffee here. I think for minimum knowledge traveller like me, Duomo alone is sufficient for sightseeing and shopping. The Galleria placed all the renowned boutiques and souvenirs shops.
And we were so lucky we got to witness a Hindustan film shooting at Duomo! I was so excited. hehe Milan is the least cold country among all the 4 that I visited. hehe. But, the people were a tad individualistic and less helpful, maybe we met with the wrong ones. But, indeed Milan is a beautiful place.
I am one dedicated Hijabista, the hotel didn't provide iron for safety reasons, hence, I went and search for laundry service. hahaha 3 euro tuu selai!! hoho!

Honestly, the westerns public transport are beyond reliable.

Amsterdam actually came after London but I decide to post about London later because we stayed longer there.
Amsterdam, OMG I'm so in love with this city. My friend checked us in at Best Western hotel, with free shuttle from the airport. Luck followed us good time during the whole trip because when we were on the way to the central, we bumped into Malaysians, a PHD student also bringing her friend around in Amsterdam. We lower our shield and asked her favor wether we can join them. She agreed! Yeay!
That was how we reached the beautiful Koog Zandijk, where the trademarks of Holland can be found, windmill, tulips and cheese.We went to Zan Chans, the place where they made clogs and cheese. We were not in the time to see tulips blooming, because they bloom around April.
Later, they brought us to Volendam, the cheap place to buy souvenirs. along the way, we can see the greenest field and the cutest sheeps! if I were to travel again, Holland tops my list!
Remember about our over excess luggage in London? We had it posted here in Amsterdam, they provided international postage service, which is so reliable, they already had it arrived in KK after 7 days.
Day 2, we were in dire to look for the famous I AMSTERDAM. They have a mini in Schipols Airport but tak valid la, mesti pegi yang museum punya. So we took tram and we found it!
Volendam, we did this for 18 euros
Russian souvenir shop yang sesat. hehe
