NEW BLOG

http://dearfolk.com/  I’ve been working on a new blog hub, please check it out for new posts and lots more photography. It’s a little project I gave myself and I’ll be posting a lot more over there (travel stories, photography, poetry, writing etc.) xx     Advertisements

wandering the mountains

Winding roads led us to the countryside of France, bordering the alps and Ecrins national park where the mountains met the cascading waterfalls. With bread and cheese in our packs we chose a path that navigated us though a forest-ridden path and over some mountains. Not a person in sight. Only the calming sound of water rushing in…

cafes, canals & coffeeshops ~Amsterdam~

Amsterdam was like a picturesque scene every turn of a corner. It was a blur of fresh mint tea in the light Friday afternoon sun and late night apple pie at Winkel’s after sitting outside a coffee shop around the corner. People sat along the riverside as the sun shone brightly, picnicking with friends or…

Mallorcan sunsets

Mallorca was a white-sand, blue doorway dreamland. As the sun rose we were flying into the island from Barcelona and the light touched the expanse below us, from the green fields to the blue beaches. Palm trees filled the city centre and every doorway was picturesque. Our airBnB was a little out of Palma in the…

tapas and sangria

The sunshine greeted us from the first moment in Barcelona, and after filling up on paella and sangria at the local restaurant the conversations flowed from life and love to travel and futures and everything in between. The next day we found ourselves winding through tiny streets of gothic town eyeing the washing dangling over…

Norwegian Woods

Norway was like a rush of emotion on the best kind of days. Colour, light and ecstasy floated in the air and everywhere we turned was beauty. Flying over the twilight-lit landscapes which evolved from abandoned frozen lakes to lush tree tops guarding small houses by the river was the best welcome we could have asked for. After…

A Christmas Adventure III: Prague

  Prague welcomed us with its beauty and intrigue from the moment we arrived. Our little airBnB was hidden down an alley way, not far from the city centre. The streets are covered in graffiti, contrasting the charm that lingers in the atmosphere. Many moments were spent in street cafes drinking fresh peppermint tea, hot chocolates and hiding from…

A Christmas Adventure II: Austria

Our first day in Salzburg started with the first snowfall of the season. White covered alleyways lit up with golden street lights as we browsed through the Christmas market stalls of white and red decorations with smells of fresh pastries in the air. Snow filled our last day in Salzburg too, this time a top a mountain…

A Christmas Adventure I: Neuschwanstein Castle

Perched a-top a snow covered landscape sits Neuschwanstein Castle, a name near impossible to pronounce but full of mystery all the same. We wound our way up the icy covered path, toes nearly reaching the point of frostbite and beanies covered in glitter snow circling the air. The forest surrounding us is vast rows of…

les petites villages de France

Overlooking a small town perched ontop of a green hill in the south of France, eating a croissant aux almondes and wondering how places like this exist. We traversed down south, conquering the tiny winding roads in the parc nationaux de Luberon and found ourselves in Gordes; a small semi-medieval-looking town built a-top a green…

Milano

When you’re craving pizza the best thing to do is go to Italy, right? Just a mere 6 hour bus ride later and you’ve got the perfect meal awaiting you. We arrived in the midst of fashion week, the streets bustling with people clothed in everything from bright coloured dresses to a chic all-black outfit….
