Ebay summer haul!

Today is officially the first day of fall in Denmark and we will have to wave goodbye to all of our cute clothes and dress in those dark and dull colours again.

But! Although fall is coming for us, it's still hot enough somewhere else on this planet to wear light summer clothes (I'm looking at places like you, California).
So for this reason I decided to make a haul post over the clothes I bought online this summer. 
This was a post I began working on long time ago so some pieces might not be available anymore. I will show you those in the end. 

So the first thing I will show you is this dress from the seller easytrade2099.
It is a sleeveless mini dress that parts in the waist with an elastic, which is covered by the hem with a bow on. You will have to tie the bow yourself and you get a little necklace as a gift. This dress can be both casual or formal depending on your choice of accessories (the necklace really has a great effect here) and it's perfect for hot days since the fabric is so thin and breezy~
(Click HERE to view it on eBay)

The next item is this waist skirt with suspenders from dioenv99. I got mine in the bubblegum pink and I love it! There is a zipper in front and the little handle-thingie on it had a pearl, which makes it a cute detail. The skirt looks good whether you leave the suspenders up or hanging lose and makes for a great every day look. On the back is some sort of crippled piece of fabric that can be stretched so it will fit around your waist perfectly.
(You can find it HERE)

Since I needed new tops (I only had a black and a few whites) I got this cute halter neck one in pink from 2012zuoyk. To be honest I haven't used it yet because my skin on the back wasn't looking too well until right before we left for Paris. But now my skin is fine again so I'll be looking forward to using it next summer! I was afraid to buy it in white because I thought it might be see through. You couldn't see anything through the (light) pink one I bought so I believe it'd be safe to get a white one too.
(Go HERE to find it)

The following items I haven't been able to find but it will put up the names of the sellers and the tags I used to find them with. Some pieces you can still buy from other sellers but mind that I have no experience with others than the ones I have listed here.

I have a strong love princess'y and cute clothes so I was really happy when I found these polka-dotted shorts (They look like a skirt but are in fact shorts) on easytrade2099 profile. These were also great for a stroll down the beach or the city because they are so breezy. Do mind that they're a little see through unless you wear light colours under.
They were called "Vintage Women High Waist Pleated Dot Polka/Floral Chiffon Short Mini Skirt Dress" and if you click HERE you will be directed to the page I found them on. Although the listing has ended, you might be able to find something similar.
Now this is something I came to appreciate a LOT this summer! Is it a skirt? Are they shorts? NO! They are skorts: a skirt with shorts built-in! (Or shorts with a skirt over.. whichever you prefer) and I got them from bigkeyboard. These are quite "thick" so it surely won't freeze! I feel very comfortable in them knowing that I can move however I like without having to worry about anything.
I found them under the name "Ladies Womens Chiffon Culotte Pleated Shorts Pants Short Mini Skirt Skort" and while the original listing has ended, I DID find them by another seller HERE (They are only available in yellow and black though).

The last things I want to show you before ending this haul are these white cat tights from goodluckybead. They're like normal nylons (but really good quality at that) and the tails and ears are sort of glued on (not glued but... kind of like the letters on t-shirts with print feels). They go all the way up and the part that is not white it a very light flesh colour.
These were called "Cute White Cat Tattoo Socks Sheer Pantyhose Mock Stockings Tights Leggings" and are no longer sold by goodluckybead. I DID, however, find them HERE but mind that I do not know this seller.



That's all for this haul~ 
I'm crossing my fingers that I'll be able to find some more cute clothes this fall!

Tips and things to know: Paris, France.

I realized that writing down the tips and things to know that I learned while being in Paris ended up being a GREAT idea since other travelers or even I myself could use it for future reference - but also that having to go through all 7 posts I wrote about it would be very time consuming for my readers.

Therefore I came to the conclusion that I should probably do aaaall the hard work for you and gather all my tips and things to know about Paris in this post!
~You're welcome~

[NOTE]: Some tips are taken out of context so I will put a link to the original posts as well so you will have a better understanding of why for example subway grates are evil and why our enemy #1 is a machine at McDonald's.


Tips and things to know about Paris, France:

Trip to Paris 1/7
  • Flying early in the morning or late at night might make your tickets cheaper (Of course this depends on which time of the year you're traveling and what your destination is)
  • Flying on a Sunday, right as a new work week is about to start, might also lessen the cost of your flight ticket (Again this depends on time of the year and destination)
  • Online check-in in the airport is easy and will spare you time and trouble. You can have your boarding pass sent to your mail, in a text, or print it at home or in the airport. 
  • The Roissy bus is a great way to get to the Opéra (near centre of Paris) and costs 10.50€ (Which is MUCH cheaper than a taxi). When you get off at the bus stop there will be guides to help you find your way. 
  • Taxis in Paris are expensive and from 20.30 (or something like that) to 6.30 you'll have to pay double price.
  • If you happen to take a taxi you should have the address written down. Not all taxi drivers were easy to understand. The first one we met didn't speak English at all!
  • Many of the Parisians were well dressed. Pack your finest summer clothing to blend in.
  • Parisians people are fabulous. Get it into your head. They look great even when running! (Sorry, I know I'm generalizing much but I meant it in the best way!)
  • A french girl who visited my class earlier this year told me that French people in general will be more positive towards you if you approach them in French or try to say a few words. The picture below probably isn't completely correct but it is a great help to learn some useful basic expressions.

  • French people seem veeery open. We were literally stopped in the street by a guy who stuck out his phone and wanted us to give our numbers!
  • Avoid eating near attractions and places with too many tourists - These places tend to be much more pricey although the quality of food is about the same.
  • If you are in Paris on important days like Bastille Day, follow the crowd! Chances are there is something they know that you don't and you might end up finding yourself standing in the middle of a big event.
  • Don't be scared of asking for help or directions. Although they can be hard to understand, Parisians seem very friendly and certainly don't mind talking to foreigners. (But be polite)
  • If you plan on visiting Louvre, make sure to bring good walking shoes and not dress too warm. The roof works like a greenhouse so it can be very hot in there. Also, make sure to grab a free map from the counters below the stairs. The place is HUGE. Trust me, you will need a map. 
  • In Denmark we are very aware of the red and green men at crosswalks (I found a great entry about it HERE). However, Parisians seem to not mind it that much and they actually continue walking even when the man is red(!!). Beware of following the crowd here and look out for cars!
  • It's clear that Champs-Élysées is the nice part of Paris! There was absolutely no trash in the streets but a few pieces of gum here and there.

  • Don't be afraid if it takes some time for the money to go through when you pay with your card (like Mastercard). It should work (at least with Mastercard. I would guess other cards should work too?)
  • If you do happen to pay with your card, wait for the screen to say "Retirez carte" before removing your card or the transaction won't go through.
  • H&M is expensive in Paris </3 
  • You never know how the new environment will affect your skin. Bringing a face mask or two is a great idea to both maintain your looks and relax after a long day.

Trip to Paris 4/7
  • You might get a discount if you order Disneyland tickets from home instead of buying them there.
  • Some tickets to Disneyland include transportation
  • The closing show begins at 11pm. If you wish to use the transportation provided by Disney you might miss the show. I'm not 100% about this though. 
  • RER A4 takes you to Disneyland
  • Don't buy the metro/train tickets online. They cost more that way than if you buy them at the desk.
  • "Sortie" means exit and is useful to know if you suddenly don't know how to get out of the metro.  
  • IF you happen to buy your Disney ticket online and print it yourself you will get through the entrance more quickly.
  • "Disneyland Paris" is a great and free app that you should consider getting if you're going to Disneyland. It shows you restaurants, opening hours, waiting times, attractions, etc.
  • Remember sunglasses and sunscreen because you will spend a lot of time standing in direct sun when waiting in the lines and you can easily get burnt without notice.
  • Don't buy souvenirs before you are 110% sure you're done trying rollercoasters! There is nowhere to store your belongings and Disney employees are not allowed to watch over it.
  • Be there in good time for the parade to make sure you'll get a good enough view to take pictures and even high five the pirates!
  • If possible, stay for the show! You do not want to miss it! And be there in good time also! Like.. an hour before if you want to be close.
  • If you don't know how to get home, don't panic! There are taxis, buses, and a metro to bring you home.
  • "Saumon" means salmon, "coppa" is some sort of ham, and "poulet" is chicken.
  • There are a lot of interesting restaurants near Moulin Rouge. Don't miss that area!
  • Printemps is quite pricey so if you are planning to go, prepare your wallet.
  • Also, Maria and I were discussing if we should go to Printemps or one of the big churches. Looking back I would definitely have chosen the churches.
  • No tips for today :O 
  • Watch out for subway grates. They are evil and WILL embarrass you at any cost. 
  • Expect a long waiting-time at the Eiffel Tower.
  • We paid 8€ for a ticket. But you will have to pay again later if you want to get to the actual top. Kids are cheaper too. 
  • If possible, go to the Eiffel Tower on a less hot day. It's terribly hot when you choose to walk instead of taking the elevators. (Yes, the Eiffel Towers DOES have elevators).
  • Drinks (water, soda, crushed ice etc.) are overpriced in the shops near the Eiffel Tower. Bring your own if possible. 
  • Avoid eye contact with the street sellers and don't react when they call out to you. I know it's rude and I felt bad about it but they will never leave you alone if you make contact. 
  • Also, if people walk around half whispering "Speak English?" ignore them. They want you to sign something where after you will have to pay to some sort of fictional "fund". 
  • Paris has a city tax so tourists will have to pay 1€ for each night/day they spend there. We stayed for a week so we both had to pay 7€ each.
  • Fix your ride back to the airport in good time so you won't feel stressed the last day. Then you will also have time for backup plans in case something goes wrong. 
  • Public transportation might not be available at all times of the day.
  • Taxis are DOUBLE price at night (I don't remember the exact hours anymore but it was from 21-22 to 6-6.30). Therefore, make sure your flight back won't be early in the morning or you will literally pay the price for it. 
  • Save cash for the moment you have to go home so you won't have to search half the city for ATM machines in case the hotel/taxis don't accept cards. 

That was is :)
I hope you will find these tips useful if you're going to Paris some day~

Trip to Paris 7/7

Our 7th and last day in Paris was the day we had set out to climb the magnificent Mount Eiffel Tower!

As usual we were walking and since the Eiffel Tower was 6,5 km away, we deserved some good, solid, fattening breakfast! Of course we ate at Brioche Dorée. (A different one)
Brioche Dorée
5, rue de Chaussee d Antin
75009 Paris 

One croissant, one pain au chocolate, and one mango/passion fruit smoothie = 4.95€
Totally worth it!

After breakfast we started walking in what we though was the right direction (we were kind of right). At some point we passed a bunch of grates and WOOOOOOSH! I did a total Monroe!.. just... I didn't catch my skirt before it was all up around my ears. I screamed in shock and Maria told me how a bunch of bypassing Frenchies had jumped in surprise. And what do you know.. in my embarrassment we passed yet a grate and I did the exact same thing again! Ooohmygosh the embarrassment  ( /)﹏(\ ゙)
Maria just kept laughing and laughing (payback from when I laughed at her awkward conversation with the macaroon guy from THIS post).

A while after we came to a more shady quarter and as we were walking, three men in front of us looked around suspiciously before one of them handed one of the others something and they all parted ways as if nothing happened. Maria is pretty sure we had walked right through a drug deal. 
Also, look what we found! Flappy Bird! 
We snapped this stunning picture from Point Neuf

The weather that day was great but it was quite hot. There were many people when we finally arrived under the Eiffel Tower. We feared we'd have to stand in the sun for hours like in Disneyland but no, once again luck was on our side! It didn't take us more than 30 minutes from we came until we could buy our tickets. 
We took this while waiting in line~

When we got through security (they just have to scan your bag), we started climbing the stairs. We didn't get far before Maria cried out: "Stop! Go back! We need to count our steps!" and we did until I saw that there were actually numbers written on every 5th step so you wouldn't have to count yourself. After a liter of sweat and 700 steps we reached the second stage. By this time it was extremely hot and Maria's legs were shaking. My foot hurt a little but it wasn't bad yet. Although I would've liked to go to the top, we didn't.
The view from second stage was incredible though and we snapped the coolest pictures!
I took sooo many pictures but these were my favorites. I love how the city is a mix of antique buildings and then a few modern buildings here and there. Paris sure is a charming city~
Can you find Sacré Cœur in the horizon?
Look how tiny people are!
The Eiffel Tower has an amazing structure and it really is worth a visit, even if it's short! 
We didn't stay long due to the hot weather but I don't feel like we missed out on anything. The way down was hard and by the time we reached the base, we were WET from sweat. It was SO gross, ugh! I don't think I've ever felt that gross about myself before.
At least I wasn't the only one who felt that way, Maria did so too.
When we got out of the building at the base, we aired our armpits and made some very unattractive, exhausted sounds right as a cute guy came walking behind us... *cough* ( ̄ω ̄;) 

There were a couple of shops at the bottom of the tower where you could buy stuff for your surely dry throat. We went and got ourselves something (Maria a cola and I a slush ice) but it was really overpriced. A total tourist trap!

We walked away a little and passed a big (what we think is a) restaurant with leaves growing all over the side. It was really pretty
Tourist pose!

A little further away there was a park where you could sit down and relax. We found a neat little bench. Frenchies, as we called them (we absolutely mean no offence with that), sure know how to relax and enjoy life! Look how calm they all look~
We also snapped some neat pictures from under the trees

Over there was a English speaking guide telling a bunch of tourists about the tower
This woman is fabulous!
When we felt we'd had enough tower viewing, we got up and started walking back to the hotel. I didn't feel good after drinking the slush ice so those were some long 6,5 km to walk.
When we were about to cross a road, two policemen on horses came by and stopped and posed so the tourists in the bike-taxi (I don't know what else to call it) could take a picture. It was just another good day in Paris and everybody were so happy and calm. 
Speaking of police... I believe it was when we crossed Point Neuf that we suddenly heard sirens. However, the sirens didn't come from your typical police car but a boat sailing down the river! That's the first time I've seen something like that.

When we got back to the hotel, after a quick trip to the grocery store, we decided it'd be a good idea to pay the city tax and fix a ride back to the airport early the next morning.
In the reception, Maria went upstairs with our stuff while I paid the tax. When she came back down it was time for us to ask about the transportation possibilities. Our flight the next day was early in the morning and we wanted to make sure to be in the airport in good time since we had never flown out from there and didn't know the place. Thus, leaving the hotel around 05.00 was ideal.
When we first came to Paris, we took a direct shuttle bus going from the airport to downtown but the man in the reception informed us that the buses didn't go that early in the morning.
..
......
(ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻

Okay so we had to take a taxi and he hotel had a deal so you could have them arrange for you a taxi to come pick you up (which was really nice because taxi drivers in France don't seem to be speaking English). How much was the taxi? 20each and 10in total to the hotel for arranging it (We had already paid for the hotel when we bought our plane tickets so that was out of the equation).
Okaaaay... Could we pay with card in the reception? No, because the taxi driver wouldn't accept cards so we had to pay in cash.
Did we have that much cash left? No. 
So the man in the reception told us where to go for an ATM machine. We didn't like the idea of using a machine like that in a foreign country but there was no way around it. We walked up to it and... it was out of order (of course it said that in French so it took us a minute or two to realize it). I then proposed Maria we asked someone for help instead of walking back to the hotel. The hotel wasn't that far away but our legs were really tired from walking up and down the Eiffel Tower and we were still feeling all sweaty and nasty. But we also agreed not to just ask a random stranger - they could trick us. Of course we didn't expect that to happen but we took no chances so instead I went into a supermarket and asked. The people in there were very nice and helpful and told us where to go for another machine. 
Did it work? No. 
So we walked back to the hotel and told the receptionist that the one he told us about was out of order, and that the second one we tried was broken too. He seemed surprised by this and told us the directions to a third machine.
Did it work? OHMYGOSHYESANDTHEDAYWASSAVED!
(It was freaking expensive though) 


The receptionist then called the taxi company and arranged it all. We'd be picked up at 05.15 in the hotel lobby the next morning. That night we stayed up late playing games and watching anime (later than we should have) and didn't get more than 3-4 hours of sleep... woops.

*time skip to some hours later*
The taxi didn't speak any English so we made the right choice to have the receptionist call for us. 
We had breakfast in the airport (it wasn't expensive but did cost more than our average breakfast) and afterwards we went to buy some souvenirs for Maria's family. 
The gates area looked like a viking ship that had been turned upside down~

Airport selfies! 

My dad picked us up in Germany and drove us back to Denmark. After talking half the time, we went out cold for the rest of the trip. I slept most of the day the day after. The next entire week I felt restless. We had been doing so many things and seen so much each day so it was weird to "just be home" and not have Maria around 24/7. But after our huge success we decided to become travel buddies and have at least one oversea trip together each year. We've already begun planning next year's trip and it's going to be huge!

That was the last post about our trip to Paris. I hope you enjoyed reading and learned some things from my tips and things to know sections. Paris is a beautiful city and I would love to go again some day!

I'm in Spain!

This is a scheduled post so while you are reading this, I will be in Spain with my classmates. I had originally planned to finish the last post about our Paris trip but packing for Spain took much longer than I had thought. 

I then considered posting what I had so far and then revise it later when I come back home... or to just post it and tell myself I'm done. But neither would work since we went through quite some trouble on the last day and I really didn't want to skip that part. 

The last Paris post will be put up after I come home (on September 19th). But we have to turn in an assignment on the 21st so I'd say to expect the next post to be up around the 22nd. 

Please take care of yourselves and I will be back soon!

Trip to Paris 6/7

I feel like I've spent way too long posting about our trip to Paris but I feel like it would be wrong to put up the new makeup reviews and stuff before I'm done here. So let's end our adventures in Paris with a smile (after the next post) and then move on to some beauty stuff!

As you might have seen, I'm leaving for Spain this Sunday so days have been extra hectic. I hope you haven't felt like the wait was too long ( ≧Д≦)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our 6th day in Paris would also be the hottest and therefore we hadn't planned too much. Our trip was coming to an end so today we really just wanted to stroll around and enjoy the city while we still could.

We began the day eating at.... you guessed it: our favorite bakery / sandwich shop Brioche Doree, where we had breakfast and were people-watching. I don't mean this in a stalker'ish way but it really is nice sometimes to sit down and relax and just take everything, including the busy people, in. 
Brioche Doree                                         <--------- Once again giving you the address in case you
150, rue de Rennes                                                   want to stop by during a future trip!
75006 Paris
Croissants, pains au chocolates, and a mango/passion fruit smoothie~ Gosh how I miss the taste of this!

After taking our time enjoying the breakfast, we headed out. There were never any actual plans of where we wanted to go or which stores we wanted to visit.. it was really just by intuition. But... None of the clothes stores had stuff that we liked. Well some did. There was a dress that I liked but it cost 200€ so... nope. The rest of the stores were either filled with what we would call professional-looking clothes or waaaay too colourful. It all looked so grown up and this was soooo not our style. 
After wandering for a while, we took a break at Starbucks. 
Once again we enjoyed a bit of people-watching. Also, my new French name is Lucie. Maria is Noguio.

Nearby was a bookstore, called Galignani, which Maria had wanted to visit after we walked by it on our 2nd day in Paris. It is located on 224 Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris (if you happen to be interested).
Outside the store hung an impressive sign~
Maria, excited about this, went inside and I followed troop. 
I didn't intend to look for anything but a couple of books caught my eyes. I also snapped some really cool pictures AND we happened to find a few books about Denmark! 
I had originally only intended to use this picture because of the clear view and the ladder in the center...
But the guy wearing green pants and the other one looking like The Thinker really showed the atmosphere in there. Upstairs was where we spent most of the time but downstairs were chairs so you could hang out and read. It was also peacefully quiet but not in the this-is-so-quiet-that-I'm-afraid-to-talk way. 
This is probably the most messed up book I have ever put my hands on. I won't spoil it for you (just look it up on Google) but it was a little disturbing. I have a bunny myself (a white one even) and I couldn't stop picturing my dear little Snoowey in those situations so I had to put it away :(
There was nothing in it but harmless cartoons though~

After the library, we walked to the little supermarket close to our hotel and brought nuts for snacks, which we enjoyed back at the hotel while listening to k-pop and playing games.
Before going home though, we had made a stop at Chloé'S - a cupcake shop literally right on the opposite side of the road from our hotel. Here the address(es):

Les cupcakeries Chloé'S                 <----- The one we went to                
40, rue Jean-Baptiste Pigalle               There is also one on this address -->     47, Avenue Trudaine
75009 Paris                                                                                                    75009 Paris

Every day when we came home, we told ourselves that we HAD to check out this shop because they probably had macaroons too (+ it looked so girly and cute from the outside). They didn't have macaroons... but they had something better: cupcakes!

As you see, EVERYTHING was pink and girly! Even the (super nice!) girl working there! There were cupcakes and bows and hearts on everything~
In the other end of the shop, you could sit down and enjoy the cute atmosphere while enjoying their delicious cupcakes that were all displayed on the front desk in pretty glass stands

Although written on little signs in front of the stands, the girl was nice enough to explain to us what they were all made of. She told us they were all handmade! I mean... cakes are just that much better when you know how much time people put into them - especially ones like these

Maria and I bought two cupcakes that we were going to share and since I paid nuts and water, Maria paid for these. I think she gave around 7€ in total, which is a little pricey, but totally worth trying at least once!
And we got the cutest little bag to carry them home in!

To make it fair, we had decided to pick one each (of course with some consideration to each other because I don't really like raspberry and Maria wasn't a fan of too much chocolate).
The first one we chose was a vanilla one with chocolate chips and the most amazing milk chocolate/nutella'ish cream on top! It was decorated with large sugar balls and a fondant leaf~

The other one was also a vanilla one but with the most amazing liquid caramel inside! On top was a sweet vanilla icing and a chocolate-covered marshmallow teddy bear


Parts of me felt bad that we were hanging out "at home" while instead we could have been out exploring more but tomorrow was going to take a lot of energy so we excused ourselves.
At the hotel we had made a playlist consisting of Boyfriend - Boyfriend, B.A.P - Where Are You?, Shawn Mendes - Life of the party, and The Vamps - Sweather weather (cover) and were listening to them over and over while playing Voltage games (If you like cute anime guys you should look them up!)

As time passed by, we listened to more and more k-pop. In the end we decided to make this our "Asian day" and have dinner at the Japanese restaurant nearby. Maria loves sushi so it was a win-win situation!

Villa Sushi                                <------ I'm not completely sure if the number is 28 or 33 but it's on the  
28, Rue Jean-Baptiste Pigalle                corner of Rue Jean-Baptiste Pigalle and Rue la Bruyére
75009 Paris                                          Don't worry, it's easy to find!

Behind the desk sat what looked like a family with middle-aged parents and a girl around our age or only a little older. We were the only costumers from when we came to we went home so it was very peaceful there (it also felt strangely empty...) but I liked our surroundings. 
They had a lot of interesting food but since I wasn't sure of the sushi (sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't) I chose to play it safe and have fried chicken and rice while Maria ordered a "boat" of sushi and some spears with meat on. I'd say the pricing wasn't too bad. 
Also, I apologize for the bad picture quality. The light in there was very orange and dim so it was hard for my camera to focus. 
Soon after we had ordered, the girl/waitress came back with appetizers (these were included with every order it seemed)
We each got this. To the left was a soup with mushrooms and onion. I find it hard to describe the taste because I have honestly never had something like this. It reminded me a little bit of pho.. but then again, not at all. It was cloudy and didn't have so much taste - It got a lot better when we added some soy sauce though~ To the right was some sort of... salad? Again, I have never tasted something like this. It consisted of some shredded (maybe) vegetable and it was very sour! On top were two slices of cucumber, a bit of shredded carrot, and sesame seeds. It was probably healthy so I ate most of this while Maria preffered the soup.
Then came our food! I got sooooo much chicken and it was impossible to eat it all! My rice came in a neat half dome and on the side was some sour and sweet sauce. I really liked my food but I regret not trying their sushi now! I paid 12.60€ for my own food and a cola. It does sound a little pricey but look how huge my plate was! 
Maria let me taste her sushi and it was sooo good! I don't like sushi when I can taste the fish and you really couldn't with this! One the side Maria also got a half dome of rice.
We were also impressed of how it was served (but Maria wasn't too happy about the tails still being on the shrimps). She also had some of the sour and sweet sauce, some wasabi (I think), and... actually I have no idea what the pink stuff was. 
The meat was pretty yummy too! There were ribs, meatballs, some meat with cheese (maybe?), and this strange kind of meat dipped in some sort of marinade. Perhaps it was chicken?
Now since we were the only costumers we had a lot of fun making weird faces while eating and discussing the food. Charming, eh? Check out me imitating a walrus!
Our day ended there and we went back to the hotel to watch anime and charge our inner batteries for our next adventures the day after~  ɞ^0^ʚ
