A dash of Pepper…

…with a splash of Mint

The very long European holiday post

Posted by Pepper on September 22, 2012

– So yes, Europe was breathtaking. I don’t think I mentioned the reason behind our trip. Mint had to spend a few weeks in Paris for an exchange program, or to attend some seminars, or whatever it is that it was. But it was the school that sent him, and a bunch of other students there. Of course, the spouses decided to tag along and turn it into a holiday by adding a few more destinations to the agenda.

– We had our flight at 2 am. Till 8 pm, we were doing laundry and trying our best to rid the clothes of the residual dampness.  I used my hair dryer a few times. At 10 pm, we were at a mall, buying a suitcase. We started packing at 11 pm. I was on the verge of smacking Mint when he told me  at midnight that we still had to take printouts of our tickets and hotel reservations.  I guess I have to accept the fact that we have to do every single thing on the last possible minute.

– Once at the airport, I realised Mint had a new toy to play with – our new 4 wheel suitcase. He kept running around, spinning the suitcase every now and then, driving me nuts. Yes, I had to put this down here, so that I don’t forget about the childlike brat that resides in him.

Prague

– Prague was our first stop. I know I am going to find it really hard to stop raving about the beauty of this place. This is by far, one of the most beautiful places I saw. In my opinion, it beats Paris, Amsterdam and the other more popular destinations by a large margin. The city’s architecture leaves you awe struck for a long time. There are pretty cafes on streets, live music, gorgeous flowers lining roads that make walking there a true delight.

– During one of our night outs there, everybody decided to try Absinthe. We were in a club, dancing the night away. I gulped at the thought of trying something like that. Absinthe is a highly alcoholic beverage. It is banned in the US and most other parts of Europe due to its high alcoholic content. And people here wanted to do Absinthe shots? I wasn’t so sure. They did it anyway. I tried half a shot, and gulped it down without thinking. I could feel the tears stinging my eyes within seconds. I tried my best to douse the fire burning in my throat, lungs and stomach, but nothing worked. The others survived it without much effect. I wonder how? I know one thing though – I am not doing it again!

– We spent a lot of our time there in the beautiful gardens and parks, trying different kinds of beers and enjoying the warm sunshine. I am not a beer person, so I didn’t have much, but most people became a fan of the dark beers Prague offered. We also spent time admiring all the churches, cathedrals and palaces they have there. That place screams history, with some structures belonging to the 14th century.  14TH CENTURY! Walking in and around such ancient monuments was a strange feeling. There is so much to know and learn in this world.

– We were a group of 4 couples, out of which, one had a 1.5 year old little boy with them. I fell in love with him right in the beginning of the trip, and spent most of my time cuddling him, pushing his stroller, entertaining him, feeding him and loving him some more. When I think of it, I guess most of us did offer a helping hand to the parents, in some way or the other. But me, I was totally smitten and couldn’t keep away from him. To my utter delight, Mint seemed as smitten and we had a lot of fun, taking care of the little boy together.

– I attended my very first Opera concert in Prague. One thing I know about myself – I am not too much into classical music. I was pretty sure the long shrill verses sung by the Opera singers would bore me, but surprisingly, I actually sat through it, without feeling too bored. I even understood most of it, thanks to the translations.

Paris

– This is where we spent most of our time. A little more than 10 days. It gave me a wonderful chance to explore Paris at length and actually understand and learn the city. Everyday, we would pick a neighbourhood, and walk around there, bumbling along cafes, restaurants, libraries. We explored the city during the day, and spent the nights dining at local French restaurants, sipping wine and chatting about our day.

– I repeat, there is so much to learn and know in this world. Each street we went to, each corner we visited had a story. They spoke about the sufferings the Jews underwent, the life of the locals, the history behind the monuments, tales from the World War, etc. I tried soaking up all the knowledge I could. This is why I love travelling, it enriches me.

– I mainly hung out with a group of girls that were extremely fashion conscious. They loved dressing up. To my surprise, they had carried 4-5 pairs of shoes, 3-4 handbags and a lot of stylish clothes. In my bid to pack light, I had taken only 2 pair of shoes and one single handbag, along with some tees and jeans. Being around them, I felt very under dressed. They also told me I wore a lot of dull colours and needed to brighten up. Eh? They also told me I should step out of my jeans and consider wearing more skirts and dresses. Mint agrees with them and says I need to dress differently, and in short – be more like a girl. Eh? Well, okay. We’ve declared a ‘no jeans rule’ for our dinner dates.  Let me bring out my skirts and leggings now.

–  Mint and I babysat the little boy for an entire day once, while the parents took a well deserved break. So it was the 3 of us in the room.  We spent all our time chasing him, playing with him, singing to him. After a while, I was too tired to entertain him. Mint had to get ready too, so he wasn’t available. I got fed up and turned on my laptop, put on a few songs for him, hoping it would quieten and calm him. It worked. He sat quietly for 30 mins, giving us a break. There, so much for judging parents who use technology to distract their kids. And oh, living with a 1.5 year old toddler is tough. Very tough.

– Paris has stunning museums. I loved Versailles and would love to take my child there someday. I wish I had seen such places when I studied the French Revolution in school. It would have helped so much. It was a sudden realisation for me, to know that the figures we saw in our text books are actually real people. They lived in this palace I was seeing, slept on this bed!

– Monalisa is overhyped. Everybody says it, and I will too. The painting was tiny, and I wondered just what was so special about it? The other paintings and sculptures in Louvre were fascinating though. Especially because they were so ancient!

Amsterdam

– We lived in a house boat! Or rather, a hotel boat. The rooms we stayed in, were tiny! So tiny, that there was no room for a double bed. We had bunk beds! But living and sleeping on water gave me such a high. We also had a beautiful deck to marvel at and lounge on. The boat had a ‘confidence bar’. Which meant, there was nobody manning it. You take the drink yourself, and leave the money there. I was amazed! And saddened, because something like this would never work in India.

– The red light district in Amsterdam was equally fascinating. It looked like women were on sale! Wearing bikinis and standing by windows, calling you inside. Oh yes, we went for a live sex show there. There was a stage on which the couple had sex, and the audience watched. Yes, we sat on the front row. I don’t know why. Mint said we’d never watch it again, so we might as well get a good view now. Um.

– I was left wondering. How do those people there have sex in front of an audience? Couples took turns to come on stage, and do it there. How? What must it feel like, to perform like that, for an audience? The moves, the positions, it all seemed so rehearsed. I sighed. That’s not how sex should be. It should be intimate and free flowing and spontaneous. Mint told me I was expecting too much, if I really expected to see some spontaneity on stage there. I know he was right. But watching those people have soulless sex like that to make money, made me a little sad.  And oh, I will never be able to get over the embarrassment I underwent here. It was about 3 am. I was tired and sleepy. We sat on the front row, watching the sex show. And, I …fell asleep. Only to be woken up by the performer on stage, asking me in a horrified tone, “ARE YOU SLEEPING??”. I woke up with a start, and said no. Mint, in a bid to cover up, said “Of course not”. My cheeks remained flustered for a long time. Me dozing off on the front row while watching a sex show also become the talk of the town, and people couldn’t stop laughing for days to come.

– Amsterdam is a beautiful city, and very bike friendly. We spent an entire day biking around the place. And it was gorgeous!

– We also stopped by in Brussels for a few hours. I thought the city was okay. Not as charming as the other places we’d visited.

Venice

– What do I say? Even the memories leave me speechless. This is a city that is built on water. It looks like the houses are floating on water. Imagine not having any land as you step out of your door? You have to step directly onto a boat. People go to work on boats and water taxis. Office buildings are built on canals. It all looks very surreal.

– The gondola ride was great, but overpriced, if you ask me. 100 frigging Euros for 30 mins? Not done!

– The Burrano island left me spellbound. Rows and rows of colourful houses. Each house a different colour! Pretty little bridges over blue water. I had to pinch myself to believe this was not some fairy tale land. Mint and I did a lot of Bollywood stunts here, while the others had a good time clicking us.

On the whole:

– We had the time of our lives. Period.

– Mint won the title of ‘Best Husband’ around. His extra good behaviour surprised me too. He would be willing to carry me and walk if I said I was tired. He would encourage me to shop more and spend more, and even be willing to bunk class to take me shopping. He would bring me the mini cakes they served them in their school there. Just the way he did earlier.  He would seek my permission when he wanted to drink. He would bring me coffee and breakfast in hand, and a lot more. The guys made fun of his ‘good husband’ behaviour. The girls went “Awwww”. Me, I was left wondering, what really happened to him? We hardly fought during our entire trip!

– A lot of the waiters and servers we interacted with had traveled to India, and even lived there for months. Was it a coincidence, we wondered. They had only nice things to say about our country. I loved meeting people like that, with different backgrounds and experiences. I loved conversing with them, and learning their perceptions of India.

– Mint has still not gotten over his obsession of jumping. Each location we went to, he said he wanted a picture of him jumping there. He said he was doing a series called ‘Jumps around the world’, and will compile all his jumping pictures and make an album.

– I don’t know how, but we nearly missed every single flight and train we had to catch. Every single time, I remember giving up hope and being sure of missing it, only to have made it in the last second. Every single time, we ran, with huge bags. Why don’t we ever learn?

– I didn’t have any plans to shop. Despite that, I did end up buying stuff. Magnets from all the places we visited, a block of delicious, green coloured Pesto cheese from Amsterdam (my favourite), 3 handbags,  key chains and a jacket from Paris, a gold plated coin with a carving of Christ (this one went straight to my wallet, for keepsake), a puppet from Prague, leggings from Rome (from the airport), chocolates from Belgium and post cards from every place we visited. What a lovely, lovely vacation this was.

Live music on the streets of Prague

Locks on the sides of the river. It is said that if you come to the riverside after your marriage ceremony, place a lock here along with your partner, and throw the key into the water, you will remain in wedlock forever

Me smiling at the number of couples who have locked their lives here together

Playing with the little one, as we soak in the sun

Coffee with a view

We had a blast, playing together in the hotel room

Running around in Paris

Fooling around near the Eiffel Tower. I am glad Mint obliges, each time I want to do something crazy

Venice!

Look at the row of colourful houses.

The pretty Venetian masks. That’s really not how I look though *chuckles*

Because we love jumping and dancing when we are transported to a fairytale land

    A very beautiful post ….loved every bit of it 🙂
    Superb pictures, the last one is my favorite 😀

  2. Bubblegum said

    The last photo takes the cake!! 🙂 See you have some awesome memories- forget other things you lost. By the way, Did you try hot chocolates they sell in stalls near small churches?

    • Pepper said

      I can see all the attention being focused on the last pic. Lol.
      Yes, we had a lot of hot chocolate, from random places on the streets. Not specifically outside small churches though. I didn’t see anything around those. Hope we didn’t miss much.

      • Bubblegum said

        I had only from churches it seems. Hey but a cup of hot chocolate is something one can never miss in Europe. By the way, with the last picture you set my benchmark- for the married life in future…when I am okay with it 😀 ah, by the way the frock is so cute. Mumbai?

    Holy moly!! 😯 While I agree I am not great with punctuality in general 😛 , for an international flight I would never leave things like this for last minute! No wonder you didn’t reply to my smses in the evening… you were in total panic mode!

    Pepper: My whatsapp doesn’t work when I am out of Bombay. That’s why I didn’t reply, cos I received nothing from you. Didn’t I tell you Mint tests my patience?

    Spinning your new suitcase eh? How many bags did you check-in anyway? Just curious! 😀

    Prague!! Took me a second to figure Hague and Prague…. I always get confused! 😛 Prague….ah! the city where the movie ‘Rockstar’ was shot. That’s definitely on our must-visit list for hubby and myself. Er, the day we have finances of course! 🙄

    Pepper:: Hague? LOL! Yes, you must visit Prague if you can. 🙂

    Absinthe? Never heard of it. I tried Saki (or Sake? did I get the name right?) on my return flight from Istanbul. One sip was enough. It burnt its way down my throat and I sheepishly returned my glass to the stewardess who gave me an amused, all knowing smile.

    Pepper: I think both the spellings are right. I’ve tried it. If you think that burns, then you got to try Absinthe 😀

    Centuary? Or you mean century? 😛 Sorry, couldn’t resist! :mrgreen:

    Pepper: *Goes red* Thanks for correcting! Changed it.

    To my utter delight, Mint seemed as smitten and we had a lot of fun, taking care of the little boy together.
    Ahem! :mrgreen: I resist my comments! 😀 😀

    Pepper: LOL! Just after we had that conversation yesterday.. reading this must have been funny..

    We’ve declared a ‘no jeans rule’ for our dinner dates. Let me bring out my skirts and leggings now.
    You go, girl ! Anything to make a pretty lady even prettier! 😀 There, I said it!

    Mona Lisa is overhyped!! You too? I so agree!

    A hotel boat? Er…ok. Whatever that is. Try the houseboats in Kerala some time. I am sure you would love it. 🙂 BTW I am in awe of that confidence bar concept! Wow! 😯

    Pepper: I know! Like I said, I was too. And I can’t wait to try the houseboats in Kerala!

    There was a stage on which the couple had sex, and the audience watched.
    😯 😯 I had to read that thrice over to make sure I read it right!! No, really !! How, why, when, where! LOL
    ROFL!!!! 😆 You SLEPT in the middle of that? Poor things, putting on a show and you are actually taking forty winks in the front of them. I’ve heard statements like, “The sex was so bad I slept off” but this is taking to a new level altogether!! Hahahahahah 😆

    Every single time, I remember giving up hope and being sure of missing it, only to have made it in the last second. Every single time, we ran, with huge bags. Why don’t we ever learn?
    You sound like my husband now!! 😛

    I love the last 2 pics the best. The wedlock one was cute too. Love the dress you wore in the Venetian mask photo. And the last photo? Stay the same, babe. Always. Hugs! 🙂

    Pepper: Thanks sweets 🙂 Hugs!

  4. Tanishka said

    What an awesome holiday you had… So many new places, shopping, fun with the kiddo, and awesome pics…

    PS – the last pic is super filmy 😀

  5. Kavs said

    Looks like a super duper vacation Pepper-Mint! 🙂 Very happy for you guys for being able to spend some quality time together.

  6. Jazz said

    I was waiting for this post. I’m glad you loved the vacation, it sounds all dreamy. No land to step on ? Wow, must have been a real fairy land.

    And how could you not plan to shop in the fashion city ? 🙂

    Aww on the best husband, maybe he missed you and wanted to make the best use of your time together.

    I absolutely loved the Eiffel tower and the last pics.

    Lastly the place looks so colorful and picture perfect, Imran has a dream of visiting Paris sometime, must work towards it. 🙂

    • Pepper said

      I didn’t plan to shop in the fashion city cos I hate shopping. It bores me 🙂
      I see you loved all the drama pics too 😀
      Yes, I hope you get a chance to visit these lovely places soon 🙂

  7. Jazz said

    Err Imran is my husband.

  8. Jazz said

    Forgot to add, I have heard about the Amsterdam’s red light place from friends too. And you slept? Lol 🙂

    • Pepper said

      Amsterdam’s red light area is very famous. I am not surprised you’ve heard of it. I slept, because we had had a long day, and it was about 3 am. I am not to blame entirely 😛

  9. Looks like you guys had a lovely time! The pictures look lovely too 🙂 Btw, how did that student exchange program go? I see that got missed in the midst of all the fun! 🙂 Lol!! 🙂

    • Pepper said

      Haha.. There was nothing much to write about really. They had classes for a few hours everyday, out of which, they had an extended break for lunch, another one for coffee. Those classes were so light, it was a joke. They had nothing much to do, other than sit and listen for a little while. Or doze off. I think the whole thing was just a glorified holiday. 🙂

  10. Nisha said

    Ohhh I so wanna visit Prague and Venice now. I’m absolutely crazy about Paris…wonder what will happen to me in the other two!
    And your last pic is sooo cute! The weight is an advantage 😉

  11. Awesome post ! You took me through Europe !
    Prague : Reminds me of the famous Infant Jesus of Prague – did u visit this church too ?
    Paris, Amsterdam, Venice, Brussels – heard about them from J’s trips…
    Heard about the live sex show – Pepper and ohh my..U dozed off..you are so much like me, likely I would’ve done the same.. I dozed off at the Spider man movie once 🙂
    Taking care of the kiddo..Well, looks like mint and you had some good pre-parenting experience …
    Glad you guys have had so much fun !

    • Pepper said

      Don’t think I visited that church 😦 Next time! (Yes, I hope to go back someday)
      I dozed off, that is bad enough. What was terrible is that I was sitting on the front row. I still feel my cheeks burn when I think of it. 🙂

  12. S said

    ah! the pictures look great!

    spontaneity is clearly visible 🙂

    • Pepper said

      Yes. They are spontaneous. Advantage of being surrounded my photographers who are attached to their cameras and know when to capture a moment when they see it. 🙂

  13. What a lovely post Pepper!!!! I read it smiling throughout and the last picture is such a keeper 🙂

  14. Missed having you here pepper. Loved loved loved loved reading this. I love traveling for these reasons too. The snaps are so lovely 🙂 the last one looks lovely 🙂
    Stay happy always !!

  15. swatimital said

    Lovely post and photos. My husband was doing an MBA in Paris too a few years ago. I really like Prague as well. Great holiday!

  16. the last photo. sigh. big sigh. you people shud be on movies. sigh. lovely ;ovely vacation and im so so happy for you two.

    and im having an evil smile here with all that cooing over the baby in the trip. time for a group mail i think *evil mom smile*

  17. You enjoyed babysitting while on Vacation? Okay, now I know where to pack my brats off to when we both want to take a break 😛 Loved the post and the pics.

  18. Wowie!!! Awesome awesome post pepper… after I finished reading, I felt like I have just returned from the vacation 🙂
    loved all the pics…
    Were you able to find veggie food at all the places or it was difficult to find? Just curious because we are planning a Europe trip next year 🙂

    • Pepper said

      It was a little hard at times, but you will manage to find veggie options. They always have things like mozzarella with tomatoes in olive oil, or a plain risotto, or pasta with marinara. You might not have too much variety though 🙂

  19. Arch said

    🙂 what a superb post. I loved reading every bit. But really, how did you sleep 😛 the last one needs to be framed.

  20. metherebel said

    You just gave me a virtual tour of Europe! I hope I go to all these places some day 🙂

    Lovely pictures! I love the last two! Absolutely love your blue dress 🙂

  21. Visha said

    I agree with Mint..you look more pretty with the dress rather than the jeans 🙂

    I liked the vibrantly coloured houses, would cheer up anyone I think.

    Venice and Prague, wish we visit you someday!! And thank you Pepper, for sketching out your vacation so vividly for us.

  22. R's Mom said

    I loved loved loved reading it..its superb..as if I was there myself 🙂

    I was waiting for this one eh?

  23. ajay said

    That was a superb travelogue. 🙂 It reminded me of this.

    “There is pleasure in the pathless woods,
    There is rapture on the lonely shore,
    There is society where none intrudes,
    By the deep sea and the music in its roar
    I love not man the less,but Nature more.” – Lord Byron.

    I like the pic with the Venetian mask the best. Something very mystical about it. 🙂

  24. KB said

    Beautiful post & lovely pics 🙂 Every time I mention I wanna see Prague, it gets dismissed as it is ‘yet another European pretty city’ .. After reading your review, I need to make a better case next time.. And like everyone I was surprised u slept in the show..haha.. We never went for one, cos I didnt like the idea of ‘seeing’ it.. Anyway, red light district itself was too much of an experience for me.. We even encountered a customer bargaining price for an hour!! And that place didnt feel real – the bikini clad women, space cakes,coffee shops, restaurants, grocery shops exists in total harmony 🙂

    • Pepper said

      Lol. I don’t think the idea of seeing someone have sex is very appealing. I went mainly because I was curious to see and understand the people who do it. Would their expressions be real? Would it be obvious that it was rehearsed? Will they really be into it? Do they look like happy people? I had so many questions. Watching the show did give me some insight.

  25. Jack Point said

    Wow, wow wow, what a dream holiday.

    AND you tried the Green Faerie.

    I’m quite green with envy.

  26. Titaxy said

    I want to go to Europe soon… always wanted to, but now especially after reading this amazing post.

    The last pic – frame worthy…not that the other ones aren’t, but you know what I mean 🙂

  27. Just reading through this was so exciting..i you lived through it!

    I am a bit jealous..you got to go with a group of friends..group trips are so much fun!

    While I was LOLing on your sex show ‘sleeping scene’, nodded my head in agreement for Monalisa being hyped too much. Ditto with Gondola ride pricing…day time robbery you ask me.

    Please find out what made Mint be the Mint he was in the trip? Is there a special potion / beer/Absinthe to get into ‘good husband’ mode? I need one desperately ( to offer to my husband of course) 😛

    Fantastic pictures BTW…send a picasa link if you have one.

    • Pepper said

      No idea what made Mint do things like bring me coffee and breakfast in hand. If I found out what potion it was that brought about the transformation, I’d be selling all my belongings in order to stock up the elusive drug 😛

      Will share pictures once I have sorted them.

  28. First off, thank you ton loads for wiping out my frustration from the last post with the exuberance of this one 🙂
    On the history bit, yes I would drooooool like that too.
    On the Opera – Hmm…guess I shouldn’t give up on myself either.
    On Mona Lisa – couldn’t agree more.
    On the confidence bar – sigh! know what you mean.
    On the clothes- Now that I’ve ‘seen’ your frame in the longest shot possible, I’d recommend skirts and thin strappy dresses. Desi clothes – ghaghras and lehengas would be your thing totally – sari, not so much imo.
    On the sex act – Similar thoughts. Also, what’s exciting about seeing someone else have all the fun? Shouldn’t the couples go make out somewhere instead of paying $$$ to see someone else do it ? Duh!
    On Venice – How did u guys get into the city? We drove our car into the ferry and parked inside the boat! First time we ever drove INTO a boat – unforgettable experience! Lovely city and yes, obscene Gondola ride prices. At St.Marco square, I remember feeling this huge admiration for Italians, Most popular food, best car design, best sculptors, best painters, best musicians, Top notch fashion,Elite furniture design …….. How many ‘bests’ they have to their name, I say?
    On the pic.s – Lovely n all; but not getting used to the long shots and fuzzy faces. And still, the Eiffel tower one is classic! Magnets are my thing too. A must to bring from every place visited. Coffee cups or plates if possible and anything else is a bonus.

    Again, wonderful trip, lovely post and thank you for sharing it 🙂

    • Pepper said

      I love your comments, you know?

      You are right about sari not being my thin. I love wearing one, but I look too thin in one. The pleats make it look like yards of fabric are bulging out of my tummy awkwardly. Someone suggested I should cut my saris, in order to get a decent fit. But then, the charm would be lost.

      We flew to Venice and then took a bus from the airport. I know, sounds boring.

      I felt the same when I stood at St.Marco square.

  29. ashreyamom said

    wow.. loved the post as much as the pictures.. last one is really a fairytale kind of pic.. 🙂

  30. Waw what a fun vacation, traveling with friends is always fun. The pictures are very cute, the last one is my favorite. You should have posted some more pictures dear 🙂

    • Pepper said

      I thought of it. But then I decided to only post personal pictures, with us in them. Rest of the pics of the monuments and locations can be obtained online na.. 🙂

  31. Hi Pepper,
    This post makes me want to catch the next flight to Europe.
    But Sigh, things like jobs, priorities, and other such important-sounding things keep me back
    Sex Show??! Seriously??! Holy Moly!
    Is there a reason why we never get to see your pretty face? Enigma it is? 🙂

  32. Oh this sounds amazing, darling! I’m so glad that you had such a fantastic experience.

    Love, Miffalicious. [www.miffalicious.com]

  33. aaah tht’s a sweet post and the pics are fab. I laughed out loud reading your sleeping in the front row while watching the live sex saga- haha. I never knew there were live shows for the same- I agree soulless -pity ! anyways these memories are gonna keep you refreshed for a long long time to come.

  34. Smita said

    wow!! That is a bumper post! And you know I wasnot expecting any pictures….with the lost baggage I thought these were gone too 😦

    Lovely account…and the Live Sex show? I can so believe that u slept, I mean what is there to enjoy when everything is mechanical!!!

    Anyways….loved reading this post & the last picture is so lovely 🙂

    • Pepper said

      You are right. I didn’t have any pics after I lost the camera and the laptop. I think we just got lucky, cos we were able to retrieve these from the kind folks who clicked them. 🙂

  35. Deeps said

    Super super holiday- post! You sure had a blast!I so am craving to go there now, especially Prague. To attend a live opera performance has been there in my must-do list for ages now! Wish I get to do that sometime 🙂

  36. aparna said

    Yours remains my favourite blog till date! I always wanted a picture in front of Eiffel Tower like that!
