Eurotrip 2016 ZRH WIEN FRA

ehalawwwhhh... duile neng, lama amat mau nulis lanjutannya,
keburu ilang keleusss rasa rasa winternya *sigh*
jadiii...

Day 4 PARIS to ZURICH
we board the train. choo choo! erw had that big of smile eating those kebab-to-go.
the trip, it was... long. hahaha, cukup bosyen lah,
apalagi internet nya ndut ndutan, makes me wonder, ini di eropa atau di sevel sih?
we arrived at dusk in Zurich, the first one caught my attention was the temperature.
yamamaaa, ini kulkas atau gimana sikkk, langsung aja rapet rapetin coat & shawl, glove & hat,
lumayan juga sih angkat angkat koper bikin badan agak anget.

we impulsively took a tram, without searching for a map first berasa udah sering kemari,
and we got lost hahaha...
it was only 6 pm i guess, tapi anginnyaaa, masya allah. seriusan dingin banget,
or is it maybe i'm a beach person, for a start ya?
yang jelas, bediri bediri nunggu tram di halte yang cuma ada atep nya doang sih lumayannn...
LUMAYAN BIKIN KZL hahaha, i was frowning, because none of us mau nanya arah,
dan mungkin karna capek juga kali yah abis duduk lama, akukan bukan gajah yang duduk doang.
and erw was upset because i was frowning, ih kzl.

finally we asked around for direction, and finally, kayanya ketemu juga kecamatan nya,
terus cari jalan rumah nya tebak tebak buah manggis, alhamdulilahhh ada plang nama jalan.
the host was veryyy welcoming, here's our Zurich home
he has another room just across ours, and he promised to be handy if we ever needed anything.
the first thing we did after we throw our luggages was... dinner!!!

jadi lah kita menuju downtown, looking for dinner. there wasn't many restaurant that opens,
many fast food retails, yes.
karna pingin merasakan the city's authenticity jadi lah kita beli roasted beef di kios kios,
where people were just finished with work and just stand around the stall,
sipping gluckwein and having roast beef sandwitch for dinner.

"beli bang, satu roast beef with chimicurri."
after i got my roast beef on my hand, dengan gragas nya, gue gigit lah itu roti. keras!
hahaha, yea... baguette kinda bread, udah gitu udara dingin kaya kulkas. ok bhay.
cuma bisa gigit dikit dikit aja dan sambil jalannn, karna standing still froze my feet! aslik.

Zurich during christmas time is THE BEST! it was literally a fairy tale, so dreamy and beautiful!
they hang wire between buildings, with those smaller wire with small bulb hanging vertically,
if you see it from distance, it looks like raining. but raining light.
oh i swear, it was the one thing i won't let go off my mind.


Day 5 ZURICH everything
first off! we're heading about 1 km off from home, to FIFA museum, ouyeaaa. FUN!
not. aku ndak ngerti hahaha, jadi kita berdua ngopi ngopi aja, sementara 2 peserta lain masuk.
abis itu actually ngga ngerti mau ngapain lagi, we just stroll around the city.
it was 2 degree celcius i believe, but the sun is shinning!!!
alhamdulilah bangettt, bisa jemur jemur dikittt, walaupun tangan beku muluuu.

udah jalan muter muter itupun ngga sempet ke old town nya, karna udah waktu makan sianggg,
dan kami laparrr...
tapi kok mahalmahal hahahaha, jadi kita makan di semacam kafetaria,
where they sell nasigoreng!!! in which nasinya mirip that spanish paella sebenernya.
abis makan, we're off around for more, sore sore balik ke rumah, solat dll dsb,
menjelang malam kita muter muter lagi, and took pictures near that beatiful lake.


Day 6 ZURICH to VIENNA
We took pretty early train to the next destination...
makanya malem terahir di Zurich kita ngirit tenaga ((selain udah agak jompo, jangan maksain)).
we spotted huge christmas tree at the hauptbahnhof, it has swarovski ornaments all over,
when i boomerang-ed it, it looks as if it's alive! i kid you not, gue kegirangan banget melongooo.

Zurich was a fairy tale city, so beautiful on christmas time, and sophistication is on every corner,
it's a small city indeed, the central is so small i think it's the size of Sumedang city, but without tahu.
food is delighful! pastries apalagi, drool...
people would gather outdoor, enjoying the amazinggg christmas decoration on city central.
road name are funny it always reminds me of Leonard Hofstadter.
Until next time, Zurich!

We're arrived at Vienna at almost dinner time. OF COURSE!!!
lapar tak menentu, udah mulai bosyen rotiii, jadi tahan dulu deh, sampe nemu restoran lain.
and this time we're so much more prepared, we got a map!!! hahaha.
waktu menyusuri mrt nya nyari airbnb kita, we stumbled upon asian food!
OUYEAAAHHH, sambel sama nasi mennn hahaha... happy gilak

our Vienna home is so strategic and the host is ZE BESTTT!
dia responsif banget nanyain kita udah sampe mana sepanjang kita jalan,
terus pas kita sampe hauptbahnhof, dia juga langsung kasitau kita harus menuju setapsiun mana,
and he was being specific, we're behind Mercure Hotel West Hauptbahnhof. OKESIP!
aslik, gak nyangka. waktu kita dateng, dia bener bener luangin waktu ketemu kita,
dan happy banget dia tunjukin yang seru seru di kota, and gave us a tour around the house.

alhamdulilahhh, gue langsung sibuk nyuci hahaha, karena di sediain jemuran shayyy #mentalinem.
spending the night, let's go to the nearest crowd, katanya ada christmas market di Rathaus Vienna,
and ow look! so many stalls selling aneka macem printilan & makanan woot woot!!!
terus ada lampion lampion & giant lamp art installation, and ice skating rink!!!
banyak muda mudi lagi pada kongkow, pada becanda, pegang pegangan tangan,
aku sempet merasa ini kayak adegan di dawson creek gitu deh kak #anaklama
i was so excited i forgot my frozen fingers, and my dying iphone, it was freezing too...
kecian ipon ku musti di masukin saku dulu, baru dia nyala lagi.


Day 7 VIENNA
setelah ngelipetin baju baju yang kering dan siap dipake lagi,
we went off to Naschmarkt. emak emak sih seneng aja yaaa, liatin sayur buah gitu hahaha...
had big brunch here, all kinds of asian food ((teteppp, masih kangen nasi)),
then we're off to Schonbrunn Palace.

Altho it's kinda costly, we're really satisfied. They handed us a recorder kinda thing,
untuk dengerin penjelasan tiap tiap ruangannya... and it was actually fascinating,
to know that someone really lived here in the past, having balls and everything,
and someone actually survived this cold without any heater whats not hahaha.
and altho the sun is shinning (alhamdulilah) the cold is really biting my fingers off, aslikkk!!!
sementara erw, on the other hand, seems so happy and jolly santeyyy aja gitu.

Berbekal google ((thank youuu google)) kita cari lah makanan khas sini, sachertorte.
yang artinyaaa kue coklat hahaha... katanya paling beken amanya Bortolotti,
the one we visited was the one at Mariahilferstrasse.
THE CAKE! however, has pretty strong orange note to it, mungkin untuk balancing the richness,
the chocolate itself is thick and rich, with moist and bouncy cake.
For a non sweet tooth like me, it was OK, karna ngga terlalu manis. itulahhh, knapa mereka beken,
karna bisa bikin ramuan coklat yang ngga lebai dan ngepasss aja gitu rasanya. edannn.

We spend the rest of the day strolling around the city, which was decorated jugaaa, awww!
i'm such a happy moth, ketemu lampu lampu banyak banget.
OH and we met a group of street musician, it really does feels like la la land sih,
tiba tiba ada musik gitu hahaha


Day 8 VIENNA to FRANKFURT
Vienna, to me is a good amount of well-preserved history and today's modernity. 
Public transport is superb, so easy to track down, figured everything out in a blink.
Everything was well organized and cheaper than Zurich.
People are more multicultural than Zurich, but still less than Paris, 
Selain multicultural, disini juga lebih multi style sih menurut gue...
Kemarin di Paris jarang liat orang dandan full kaya mimihKaDe, rata rata mekap natural,
you know, french women, with perfect olive complexion and their tan, brunette, good eyebrows,
di Zurich lebih jarang lagi, rata rata orang tua idk why, dan less mekap aja.
nahhh disini banyak hahaha hahaha mungkin mimih seneng kalo disini banyak temennya.

it was harder to leave Vienna, because we like it so much!
erw malah udah lebai... nanti anaknya mau suruh sekolah disini aja. AMINNN YRA.

off to the train station super early in the morning, 6 am udah duduk manis if i'm not mistaken,
mata sepettt... we're heading to frankfurt, for a stop aja.
karna kalo diterusin bablas sampe tujuan selanjutnya, bakalan lama banget di kereta,
so we decided, yaudah sampe sore lah di frankfurt, terus besok pagi lanjut lagi to our final city.

It was quite hard to find our frankfurt home 
the building was quiet old in my memory, dark carpet-ed stairs, no elevator, and the room...
was actually darker and so humid when we arrived, maybe because of the cold.

Frankfurt city didn't win our heart unfortunately, kota nya agak "kejam" gitu ya hahaha, 
cold and harsh, graffiti is everywhere on the wall, it was rather dirty too i guess...
idk, maybe we didnt get the chance to stroll around so much juga kayanya.
we had dinner at home and hit the bed pretty early too, karna besoknya kita jalan lagiii to our last city.
