One day trip to Monet Garden

It’s spring time and it is a perfect time to go to Monet Garden in Giverny, France. One of the most beautiful garden in France – I believe.

Throwback Thursday: Trip to Portugal

I travel to Portugal for the first time in June 2013, and it’s definitely one of cheapest travel destination in Europe – if not – the cheapest trip I’ve had in European countries.
