    Guys I'm going to Europe for the first time in my life!

    Tomorrow, 5/6, will be my first time to travel without my parents and also the first time to visit Europe. My flight will depart from Hong Kong at 00:50 (GMT+8). I'll travel within the period of 5/6-13/6 and will visit Roma, Firenze, Venezia and of course, Milano. I would like to express my greatest gratitude to a couple of friends here including Yuko, Michal, Boris, Fabio, Michal, Ninos for your kind help when I'm planning my trip. Grazie mille ragazzi

    In the meantime, I would like to know if there's anybody who can accompany me to hang around in Italy as I know this is not the safetest place on Earth, or at least a bit less safe when compared to Hong Kong. If you are interested, please leave your phone number (incl area code) here so that I can contact you as soon as I purchase the phone card.

    Once again, I thank you all for the kind support. Ci vediamo in Italia!
    Grazie Ragazzi

    Forza Inter

    Wonder if I can



    There are many interesting places in Europe and especially in Italy so enjoy as many of them as possible!!!
    Some people were against a female name as my nick. Strange, don't you think?

    But no, I did not left only because of it. Don't worry, there is a brand new superhero who will save everyone. I just have mental issues and I am freaking disgusting.

    Watch out there are lots of murderers in Italy who are going to rob you because of how you look and if you smile they will stab you. Be careful man, Italy is a big no go zone for people from Hong Kong - we are natural born enemies and I doubt you will make it out alive.

    Unless he can pay for his protection, we all know that Italians will do anything just for a sack of money or an expensive car. (Just ask the referees in Italy, they will confirm it )

    Oh, I didn't notice this thread (until you are back in Hong Kong). Hope you had a nice trip! I am (probably) going to Venice + Milan for 3 days in late August too. I hope I won't get robbed...

    Just pay attention from the guys with the motorino,and you'll be quite safe.Also avoid hanging out alone at night,but I guess that's the same everywhere.
    Italy has more of a myth about robbing,than in reality.That is excluding Napoli,of course

    I've heard many stories from close people that they were robbed in Italy!!! Actually, I'm the only one who has never been robbed in Italy from the people I know that went there (not many went though)

    Someone attempted to rob my mom when she was there. She was in a crowded bus and these group of men squeezed into her to distract her while the designated one tried to snatch her handbag. She screamed and drove them away though. She's one tough mom I tell ya.

    Do they usually rob? Or do they steal? Or they first attempt to steal, if fails, then rob?

    Witt, they tend to steal foreigners... You can't tell that a European(Caucasian as the US want to say) is much different from an Italian, so you realise who these foreigners are. Far Eastern people, Arabs and black people.

    But in some places like Rome, Milano, Napoli etc, they tend to do group thefts like Han said. They've done it my grandparents 4 years ago, and one Englis school teacher I had. Result for my grandparents? 450 euros and some shopped stuff stolen! For my school teacher? Don't really know, but now he lives in Italy and is a principle at a school there lol!!!

    dam this discussion is getting ridicoulouse ofcourse the possibility of getting robbed is higher when u re an asian and ure walking around with a cam taking pics all 2mins ( no offence against asians) But the fact is where ever in this world u are and u show clearly that u re an tourist the chance of getting robbed is quite high it s not like Italy is that dangerouse
    Which matches do you feel more, those with Juventus or Milan?
