It's all about Mona Lisa's Smile

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Tourist attraction that became the target of every Paris’ traveler than the Eiffel tower is the Musée du Louvre. Including me and my family. We had a chance to explore this museum on October 2009. This building is the largest national museums in France, and is also the most visited museums in the world. We had to buy a ticket for 9 Euro to explore the contents of the museum and its valid for 3 hours. The museum is divided into three wings: Denon, Sully and Richelieu. Therefore, I am wondering that three hours of actual time given was not possible to explore the entire contents of this museum.
The museum is located in the former Palace of the Louvre was built in the late 12th century by King Philip II. The museum officially opened on August 10, 1793 with a display of new paintings as many as 537. It is said that this museum was once called the Musee Napoleon, when in the leadership of Napoleon. Currently, nearly 35,000 materials exhibited. It's incredible!

Tips to the Alhambra

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

At the end of last year 2009, my friends and I had a "close year" holiday in Spain (see my stories of Madrid, Seville, Cordoba, Alhambra-Granada, and Barcelona) . For this time, I share some tips and tricks that can be carried out before and during a visit at the Alhambra, the famous one in Spain. I hope this can be useful for you all.
  • Tickets cost EUR 13 applies to all, there are actually a special discount students under 30 years old, but there is a special price for student, however there I could not apply this, because 'perhaps' only for Spain student.
  • If you do not have time to book online at Alhambra official website, try to come as early as possible, at least one hour before the ticket locket open (the locket open at 8:00), because if not, will get stuck with a very long queue, and will likely not get a quota in that day because the quota was exhausted visitor tickets, especially on Sundays or public holidays. 

ISIC, your student passport to the world

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Yup, that's the motto of the ISIC = International Student Identity Card. Finally, yesterday I was able to get  it  with a cost of 12 EURO, at the Asta Uni-Bremen. Requirements are very easy, just need a 3x4 passport photo and show a valid student card and imatrikulasi numbers, and also passport. ISIC is especially for full-time students. ISIC published per academic year, with a validity period of 16 months from September until December the following year. Now I have a valid ISIC until December 2010.
