Train passes and sunflower.

I must sincerely apologise for the slow posts over the past few weeks. It’s been hectic, almost manic, with so many things going on. Apart from completing the long to-do list, a few more things have cropped up, like recovering from annoying sickness and preparing myself to be a wedding emcee for the very first time and I had to do it in Mandarin. (Fortunately, it all went very well yesterday, with only very minor glitches when I mispronounced some of the champagne toasts, but everyone thought it was all scripted so my reputation is still intact).

Anyway, just when I thought that I might collapse anytime soon under all the pressure, two things arrived at my doorstep that lifted my spirit up immensely almost immediately.

First, my Eurail pass is here, much earlier than expected! Opening it was extremely exciting, just like unravelling some long-lost treasure. It even came with a map of Europe showing all the railways connecting one city to another.

This is just too much for the map-obsessive disorder in me.

Although I have been visiting Europe almost every year since 2009, I have not actually taken any European railway trains since then. It was definitely an experience that I would like to relive.

My very first European train ride 5 years ago, from Copenhagen to Amsterdam. I wouldn't mind reliving that party pack of nachos too.

Secondly, this came too.

How is a girl not happy at the sight of these gorgeous flowers? 🙂
