I haven’t seen as many eggs within the span of two days as I did at the Easter markets in Vienna last weekend. Mr.A and I were in the beautiful Austrian capital, walking around town, hopping on and off the trams, and strolling in and out of its many cozy markets showcasing local crafts and delicacies, among plump fluffy rabbits, cocky roosters and an immense collection of gorgeously decorated eggs. By the end of it we’d seen eggs made of wood, wax and glass, eggs small enough to hold in ones palm to those towering high above my height, eggs dipped in mild vegetable dyes to those bedecked in gilded pearls, dainty crochet jackets or mini oil paintings, and honestly, every other kind of Easter egg in between!
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 🙂

I’ve been right here all along! But what this post is really wants you to know is that Sunny District has a new page where I share links to all the places I have been to & written about. Just click on the link ‘WHERE SHE’S BEEN‘ below the header image and read about my travel stories. I know there are some countries I am yet to talk about, but I’m going to close that gap soon, soon… I hope you will enjoy the journey with me!
