Reached Pisa at late evening and took bus Pisa to Florence. Was around 12am when we reached Florence and we rushed to taxi stand and took a cab to hotel even though its just around 15 minutes walk away from Florence Main Station.

Seriously, I was quite scare and worried coz its was sooo late! And there were many people sitting along the road! I was so worried that we might get robbed anytime. Haha ya I know I am paranoid. As I heard too many stories about Italy before I go!

Pick pockets and robbers! Lucky us, we did not encountered any during our 6 days in Italy =) Maybe they can tell we are not RICH PEOPLE! =p

I have my reason to say this room is eerie as I have a spooky experience in this hotel room!

Once i stepped into the room, i had very uncomfortable feeling. And i gave XL a look telling him why he choose this hotel!!!! And i wanted to change hotel. But it was 1AM =( so i got no choice but stay there for a night. After first night, everything seems fine. Maybe i was too “sensitive” or coz of the “Old ENglish furniture” make me uncomfortable? So i drop the idea of changing hotel.

On the second nite, XL went out to get mineral water so i stay in the room ALONE! Took off my contact lens and wanted to go for shower. At this moment, the lights went off. ANd it was so dark that i need to walk slowly to the hotel room. WHile finding my way to the door, the windows OPEN!!! and strong cold wind blew in! and saw some lights on my bed. But i couldnt see properly (as i have night blindness lah, but i can see lights ok), i just dash out the room and waited for my XL to be back. Only my rooms went black out, and XL came back around 20 minutes later. He was damn shocked that i was standing outside the room ! LOLX

He just walked in and the light is back again!
…….

Maybe somebody is trying to disturb me! Anyway that is our last nite there!
