I have spent the last couple weeks jumping around, wrapping up in Italy, and finally made it to Barcelona, and then into Germany. It has been a lot of traveling in a very short period of time. I figured it was time to share a few more pictures. Enjoy
I only stayed two nights here, and this surely was not enough time. Florence is everything one could expect. Just the right size in my opinion, to not feel lost in the buzz of a big city, but yet still has everything you could ever ask for; art, architecture, great food, coffee (this is Italy after all). I will be putting this location on the “revisit” list for sure!
I made a short flight (relative to the recent ones I have been making) across Europe to spend a bit more time in Venice. This time was different, not having to worry about when the ship was going set sail. I found a beautiful new (to me) side to the city making memories that will last a lifetime. Sometimes, you can pick up where you left off! Also, I captured a couple new pictures to share, enjoy…
Recently spent a little more time in London. This time around I wasn’t rushed around visiting the tourist sites, as I covered all those three years ago. If you haven’t seen the posts I made from when I was here before, what are you waiting for? (if you are on the “full version” of my website, there is a drop down list on the right that says “Blast from the past” select July and/or august 2011.
This visit was much more relaxed, if London can be relaxed. Spent most of my days wandering aimlessly around, finding all kinds of experiences waiting for me, see my instagram. London is really an amazing city, in the diversity of its people and all the things to see and do. I am not sure even an entire lifetime would be enough to take it all in.
When I was ten years old, my father was in the military and was stationed in England for about four years. This means that most of my clearest and earliest memories, are from a country that is not on the front cover of my passport. After returning for the first time, three years ago, I have thought of little else, but to return. All sparked by the sense of “home” I felt, the moment I stepped out of Heathrow, back at the time I started this blog. Can we say, full circle?
Having been back in England for a short while now, I have found myself returning to some places that I have been before. It feels like a bit of a time capsule. While I have changed, so does everything else. Here are some recent moments I have “captured”…
I find myself now, having finished spending just under a week on the rivers and canals of a National Park, in East Anglia. Being surrounded by the natural beauty of this part of England, was a real treat, not to mention the great company. It felt nice to be back in a rural part of the world with the sounds of nature and the water. I was blessed with amazing weather for the duration, only rained a bit one night on the boat. Here are a handful of pictures I have selected to share here…
I have spent the last month on a detour from my original plan and made a pit stop back in South America. I was in Chile, and came up with only a few pictures to share from my time in Santiago. This time around I felt much less a tourist. I have experienced Latin American culture in a much more intimate way than my prior visit had shown me.
Having been oblivious to it in the moment, as usual, I am surprised a recent discovery; I am just a mirror of the universe’s flow. Power of creation is a really amazing thing, and just becomes more of a reality in my experience everyday! I am so eternally grateful for my life and all those who have, will and do continue to play a part in it.
Now, having cleared, one of one of those potential “what if” scenarios, Back on track…
Well, my time in New Zealand has come to an end. I learned that the kiwi fruit, should always have the word “fruit” after it, because an actual Kiwi, either refers to the people of New Zealand, or the beautiful nocturnal, flightless, endangered bird, that can only be found there. The Kiwis are an amazing, friendly, raw breed of people, who will almost always leave a smile on your face.
As promised, the country just got more and more beautiful the further south I made it. The only way I can think of to describe it; Mother Nature was just showing off. Leading to my largest post of pictures yet…
I couldn’t come over to this part of the world and skip New Zealand. Since my last post, I have torn up the north island. Having just today, made the ferry crossing to the south island. I figured this was as good a place as any to make my next post.
New Zealand, as promised is unlike anyplace I have ever been, stunningly beautiful. Even with all the rain and clouds that would probably ruin it for most, I see nothing but beauty every where I look, “As you do”. The weather, making picture-taking challenging, here are a few for you to enjoy as I move on to exploring the south island. Sweet as!
On my final eve of what has been a great highlights tour, through a fair amount of places in about five weeks. The few little side-steps I have made will probably turn out to be the most memorable…
Sydney, Sydney in Brisbane.
and Melbourne, in different ways, you both stole my heart!
Great ocean road and the less than twelve apostles, stunning, didn’t see that coming.
Beautiful blonde Cairns, you will always be; bringing an old vision finally, to life!
Mardi Gras beginning, to the great reef finale. All that “Magic” packed throughout!
Knowing more magic is just ahead,
the nomadic ram roams on…
