DAY 2 // Cairo / Egyptian Museum The most fun I’ve had at a museum was at the War Museum on day 86 in Cambodia as we were able to touch and play with all the war machines and weapons, but the most fascinating and breathtaking was what I visited at the famed Egyptian Museum… The Egyptian Museum. It has been said many times before but the craftsmanship and architecture from the ancient Egyptian civilization from thousands and thousands of years ago was awe inspiring. Almost as much as when I toured Angkor Wat . The small but most impressive exhibition of King Tutankhamun alone is worth the ticket price. Although photography is forbidden inside the museum, this is profound enough for just your natural memory. While walking back from dinner, 2 locals tried to mug me. Intentionally leaving details, my carbon fiber knife saved me and… 1 of the perps must have been sent to the hospital later that day.
Salone del Gusto
It is also famous for the Slow Food event Salone del Gusto, that has been held here every 2 years since 1996. I was able to attend last month and it blew my mind! Torino is the location of the world’s first EATALY food store. Definitely a great town for foodies! More people watching. The first time I visited, I saw a man in a velvet cape walking his afghan hound. No lie. It was fantastic. More time breathing in the beauty and history and essence of Torino.
Weekend Getaways from Turin
177 Kms from Turin
When I was flying to Milan I had to literally pinch myself to believe, that I am going to a foreign land all by myself and living my dream.It was around 11.30 pm when I landed in Milan and divulged myself with some serious pep up talks because I felt a tad bit lost.Amidst all the battles in my head, I saw a young woman walking towards the train station and befriended her. To my surprise, she was warm and very helpful. She expressed, “I will come with you till the hostel and grab a drink. I am very upset coz my best friend has moved to another city.” And that’s how her melancholy saved me the despair of finding my way.The walk towards the hostel was fascinating as all I saw around me were stores thriving to get my attention and at the end of the long stretch was the hostel — Ostello Bello.The moment I set my foot in the hostel, it seemed like I have entered a high-octane resto-pub. The place played electrifying music and I could hear tons of chitter-patter with copious amount of laughter coming from every corner.Amidst all the initial formalities of checking-in, my eyes were searching for my friend (Sigh! Struggling to remember her name). That’s when Helder (from the front desk) said, “Hey! Your friend just went and left you a kiss,” and I couldn’t do much but smile and thank her from all my heart. The ‘happy’ me chit chatted for a while with everyone before calling it a night.
