Barca Blue

I’m finally getting round to posting some photos from Barcelona! It’s amazing the difference a blue sky makes. It was only about 18-20°C but sunshine and a blue sky makes everything feel warmer. Barcelona is extremely photogenic so expect more!



The Windy Crag

We affectionately termed Paros the ‘Windy Crag’ because…well, it’s windy and rocky. There’s apparently a constant stream of wind between Paros and Naxos, and this makes Paros a popular windsurfing spot. I grew fond of the Windy Crag, particularly on the day we went on the long, long walk documented in the above photos. We walked from Parikia over to a ruin we could see in the far distance. It involved walking through beaches and over hilly and rocky terrain and it took about 4 hours there and back but we got there! I’d say it was my favourite part of the whole trip.



Views of Athens

I know these are long overdue! The onset of winter has made me lethargic and lazy. These are a mix of shots from Athens. I can’t adequately sum up Athens. I’ve visited a number of cities and I’ve never experienced anything like the views Athens has to offer, and there are so many vantage points from which to see them. Seeing the city from such height gave me a sense of just how massive cities are and, in the case of Athens, just how old and sprawling they can be.

 Bethany and I went for a wander through the outer centre of Berlin, beers in hand, as dusk approached.



Willkommen in Berlin!

As expected, I had a fantastic time in Berlin. These shots are from Neukölln, an area in the southeast of the city. Bethany and I took a walk along the canal and into the Türkische Markt. So many more photos to come! I’ve got a crazy couple of weeks in terms of work but I’ll do my best to post on the regular. In the meantime, do check out Bethany’s new fashion blog, The Arched Eyebrow. I think you’ll all approve.



In technicolour

For me, Prague was all about the tiny details. I noticed cute, little things everywhere I looked. From unseasonal baubles in shop windows to hand-crafted decorations to little bits of graffiti, my inner magpie was quite overjoyed.

I’m quite excited about the arrival of spring and, most of all, summer. I’ve got a trip to Berlin lined up with my best girl Bethany and there are talks of Barcelona in the pipeline. I’ll also be going to Poland (possibly Krakow?) and my brothers and I are hoping to hop across the pond to New York in the early autumn too. The year of frivolity is shaping up nicely and I’m a very lucky girl indeed. Oh and the sun’s out in London today, I’m going out for dinner with my best mate then off to a gig with a bunch of my friends. When it rains it pours.



Praha

Prague is beautiful. It was a banquet for my eyes and also for my inner history student. Like Istanbul (my destination of choice this time last year), the history of Prague is so visible and it’s quite something to see how the events of an entire millennium weave in and across each other. These shots are just the tip of the iceberg – many, many more to come.
