My foreign jewelry collection

Image
I love collecting stuff from other countries like shot glass, coins & jewelry. 
I'm not sure if I should call this as jewelry or not lol because it is not made from jewel or anything lol. I don't really wear them to be honest since I'm not a jewelry type of woman. The only 'jewelry' that i wear are some small crystal earring. Anyway lets look at my small foreign jewelry collection.
Murano glass earring

Gypsy earring This one I bought at La Rambla, Barcelona for 5 Euro. I love the Bohemian feel of it, They have a lot of other type but I can only afford to buy one since I'm a poor Asian woman 😆

My trip to Pompeii and Herculaneum (Part 2)

Continuation from Part 1

Herculaneum
I gotta say u need the whole day to visit Pompeii alone unless if u go there during summer. U probably have enough time to visit both Pompeii & Herculaneum during summer (longer sunlight for u but crowded). The next day u can visit Herculaneum & Naples Archeological Museum. I wish i’d visited Naples Archeological Museum because i want to see those frescos & statues in Secret Museum! But i totally don't have time!

How to go to Herculaneum from Ercalano station?
Out from Ercalano station go down & walk straight (or use taxi which I avoid) all the way for 15-20 minutes (not that near) until u found a wall gate with latin alphabet ‘HERCVLANEVM’ & need to walk further for like 10 minutes until u reach the ticket entrance.



The main entrance to Herculaneum. It looks pretty dark because of the backlight


This is how Herculaneum looks like from the top while u walk along the long path to go to the site from the main entrance. As u can s…

My trip to Pompeii and Herculaneum (Part 1)

I think most people had heard of Pompeii. I first get to know about it from a documentary many years ago. My choice of travel destination for a vacation is always ancient historical places  (and places with wonderful nature beauty), so this is one of the must go places for me. But how to get there?

If u disembark from Roma Terminal, u need to buy Trenitalia ticket to Naples Central (Napoli Centrale). Buy it earlier to get better price and to avoid ticket sold out situation. From Napoli Centrale change train to Circumvesuviana train (old scary looking train). Cant remember how much but it is cheap. I have a hard time pronouncing Circumvesuviana. The Circumvesuviana platform is at the ground floor. Find an escalator & go down. I got lost in this station after I was given with the wrong information by a local & the sign was not helpful & confusing haha. Or maybe it is just me. I bought the ticket from the counter from an old lady with sour face.

I was pretty much excited to have the chance to go to central Asia. I never thought that i will ever visit this part of the world before honestly. Visa is not required for Malaysian to go there. But u will need some sort of registration when u are there. I'm sorry I don't know how's the process were because it had been done by the secretary of the company that I work with at that time.

I fly there by using Etihad plane transit to Abu Dhabi. I hate their airport. It was too crowded.
Anyway, once u reach Almaty, u will be greeted by a row of iced mountain. Wonderful view. I wish I can sit there & watch it for hours.
If u need a SIM card, u can purchase one in the airport. They don't have a nano sim but don't worry, they will cut micro sim to be a nano-sim for u & their. English is very limited, some can't speak English at all.

At that time I had stayed  at this nice hotel named Iris Hotel at Furmanov street. I got a super big room that can fit 3 small pe…
