Around Italy And Paris in 12 Days
Our Italy and Paris escapade is actually just a side trip from the Truly Rich Club seminar we conducted in those places. It was an express Europe sightseeing kind of thing. We did not have the luxury of time to experience what those places have to offer.
There are myriad of things to do and wonderful places to see that would be impossible to accomplish in just two weeks. Surely, we will be back again to check on the things we’ve missed.
I read and watched a lot about the wonders of Italy and France. But to actually see them in person is truly amazing.
I was really amazed by the artistic details and features that have been deliberately and painstakingly applied into the structures whether a building, a sculpture, a bridge, a wall or just a pavement.
The builders or creators really put their best mark, creativity and identity in their creation that resulted in such marvellous works of art.

By now I’m sure you have noticed something monotonous in all our photos – we never changed our jackets!
The truth is, yes, we didn’t.
It’s really foolish on our part to have underestimated the temperature of Italy during winter.
We lived in Canada and US for years and we thought that we can handle the cold and bringing along thick and bulky jackets will just be an added weight to our luggage.
We considered buying new jackets but we deemed it not wise with all the hassles of carrying it back to a tropical country after just a couple of days use. We simply changed our undergarments and kept our ole comfortable jackets on.
So, as an advice, if you visit Europe during winter, bring along at least two jackets so you won’t look monotonous in the pictures.
Just a bit of trivia regarding that jacket of mine. I bought it is Toronto in September of 2003 and it became my trusted hard-working winter jacket ever since. It has since been protecting me in all those cold winter months in all the places I’ve been to.

Oops, sorry, no jacket yet. Autumn has just set in. The weather is cool and clear. Perfect time to just chill in Times Square.
