My Favourite Travel Photos

Posted on 02. Feb, 2011 by in Europe Travel, Photo Posts

I’ve been going through my travel photos pretty often lately. Winter blues? Wanderlust? Nostalgia? All of the above are accurate. Instead of writing another long post on why I hate travel bloggers, I decided to share my favourite photos from my own collection and spread the love.

While most of these pictures aren’t perfect on the technical side, they all represent something special for me and that’s what I want to share. To see my “portfolio”, check out the photos on this blog or my Flickr stream.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Amsterdam canals, evening light

Amsterdam canals at night. Could it be any more romantic?

I don't like Guinness.

Brighton, beach, sunset, Brighton West Pier
It was the perfect end to a perfect day of sightseeing in Oxford and Brighton, followed by a The Sounds concert.

Trust me, after spending all winter in London, it's hard getting used to sunlight again. Taken at the Alhambra in Granada, Spain.

Hyde Park, tulips, spring, English Cottage

There's nothing like spring in London.

Touristy photo, but much better.

Nice, Monaco, beach, Côte d'Azur, French Riviera

The first time my feet met the sea. It was in Nice, France.

Gibraltar monkeys

Two baby monkeys in Gibraltar.

    I LOVE the tulips in London! Also a big fan of the “touristy” photo at the merry-go-round in Paris: great set-up! Awesome photos :)

    Love the photos! Especially the Gib monkeys-can’t believe you got this shot! They are so hard to catch standing still!

      I got really lucky because I didn’t get much photos there other than this one. We were there after opening hours and had the place all to ourselves though, so maybe the monkeys were less excited.

    Just accidently came across your website, and I’m so happy to find another Europhile! My site is http://www.toeuropewithkids.com, which probably won’t interest you since you’re too young for kids, but that’s okay! I’m going to check out some of the other blogs on your blogroll. Love your photos!

    Love these! I’ve often wanted to do a similar post, but the task of going through all my travel photos is so daunting!

    I LOVE the one of the tulips in London!

      I totally understand… some of these pictures were taken over 2 years ago, that’s how long it took me to sort them, haha!
