Hardly three weeks ago Stockholm was dumped with heaps of snow. Thankfully that slowly melted and then came Spring! These are the first flowers I saw sprouting up along the sidewalks. Lucky for me, these purple blossoms fit right into today’s prompt up at The Daily Post. Have a lovely week ahead!
Evening walks along the Danube in Budapest had a luxurious feel… as the lights came on, elegant bridges & buildings began to sparkle like gold while the sky and the waters deepened to a brilliant shade of blue…
A few weeks ago, I went on an awe-inspiring road-trip through Iceland with Mr.A and two of our closest friends in Stockholm. Although it will take me a while to recount all those breath-taking views and experiences we shared along the way, let me start with Reykjavik, our port of entry & exit. Like I do on all my trips, I tried to capture the spirit of the city through its vibrant street art. At least a few years ago, the authorities in Reykjavik were not very supportive of this form of art. Not sure where they stand now, but I was happy to find a lot of color along Laugavegur, Reykjavik’s hep main street, leading up to the beautiful harbor area of Gamla Höfn. Take a look 🙂
