Finally the weekend I've been waiting for has arrived...My weekends in Germany have never been this fun..Normally I would just go out to Neumarkt or Hauptbahnhof or Museum or just simply hang out at my place doing nothing else besides going online or watching movies....hurm..
It was a last minute plan for this weekend but alhamdullillah everything turned out awesome.I was chatting with a German friend, Tony when I suddenly thought of going to Essen on the weekends...There was another plan actually but it had to be cancelled due to some difficulties and time constraint..yeah.So zoooshhh to Essen it was...zooshhh tu as if like bunyi kereta api konon bajet laju tapi lembab kot.Tak kisah sebab murah dan murah dan murah.Murah penting ye adik2..student kot.
Kalau convert 37 euro maybe agak mahal..but2 this ticket allows you to take up to 4 people together..so total 5 people for 37.euro.murah kan...Unfortunately only Rumitha and I wanted to go to Essen..the others were busy with other events...

Villa Huegel - a large estate and residence for the founder of steel. It was built by Alfred Krupp in 1873.
The three rings were the symbol for Krupp, based on the radreifen - the seamless railway wheels patented by Alfred Krupp
Krupp had once earned the first place for the company with the most income per year..impressive huh...
Touch screen for information..
