What makes this trip is interesting is we were on our own there. Mama was so worried about me as im traveling backpacking in a land that don’t use English as their mother tongue. But to me, it didn't stand on my way since living in Moscow has sharpened my skills on 'communicating based on body language’ haha. Seriously, we did that!
I could say we are survivors. We survived getting around with only a map and a guide book on Spain. Fascinating isn’t it? Hehe. There, we stayed in hostels. They are comfortable modern hostels. Fully equip with kitchen and internet. We made friends also with the other tourists staying there. Well, the standards should be around that since we paid 20 euro per night. If to be converted in RM, I should be getting a room in Hotel Seri Malaysia am I right? Haha.
I realized something about the people in Portugal and Spain. The guys there are really handsome. Better looking than the Russians. I remember getting on a bus in Granada. The first time I stepped into the bus, well I thought, ‘handsome nye driver bus ni’. Then we have to changed bus to get to our hostel. As I stepped into the next bus, ‘eh, driver ni pn handsome gak?’ After several times of stepping in and out of busses, we made a conclusion, the guys are really handsome. Even the maintanence worker in metro is goodlooking. Tall and muscular ;p. Well, as for the women, the Russians are prettier. To my surprise, the people in these two countries are not so tall. Standing in the metro, I found myself quite tall than the rest. Most of them height around fatt and diba. In Moscow, I’m an average height.
The people there are warm and friendly. They always greeted us eventhough they don’t know us well. Everywhere we go will always be followed with a warm Hola greeting. Upon our staying there, we learn few words essential to us like mucha gracias, abrigado, salida, consigna and many more. In Portugal, there are few words of them similar to our BM. After all, we learnt in history that we assimilate few words from the Portuguese. We have the word almari, limau, jendela, garfu in common. When I talked with the locals, they mention to me that Melaka was once in their territory and I think they’re proud of that maybe.
Well down here are some picture I would like to share to all ;)
