Recent Travels to Croatia

Was it all just a dream? That's what I'm asking myself today as I ease myself back into everyday routine after returning back from a wonderful holiday spent in Berlin and Dubrovnik. 

This was the first time I have visited Dubrovnik and completely fell in love with it. It is such a special place and the beautiful surroundings, food, culture, and people took my breath away. It was one of those holidays that makes you forget about everything in your everyday life and inspires creativity, introspection and new perspectives on life. In effect, a bit life-changing and I cannot wait to go back again soon! I promise to post photos and my story soon, but I wanted to give a glimpse of some of the beauty I experienced from my recent Instagram posts that I took along the way (find me on Instagram at @woman.meets.world).

Weekend Wanderlust

I am a big fan of Gray Malin's beautiful photography. His whimsical and creative images constantly draw my attention. For me, Gray is able to capture the spirit and joy of a destination; Europe in particular. Below are three images I'm currently loving from Gray, which he shot in Italy. He has been able to capture the Italian essence of summertime; the heat, the colour, the sparkling sea, the hazy blue skies, the loungers, the lovers of life, the Italian feel of holidaying by the seaside... 'La Dolce Vita' in photographs. 

Gray has a really fun Instagram account (@graymalin) that always provides a daily boost of travel inspiration. His website is also fab and recommend checking it out as there's always surprises that end up in  your inbox - and lots of daydreaming material. 

Ciao!

Postcards from Paris: Place des Vosges

On my first morning in Paris, fresh off an overnight flight from Toronto and desperate to stay awake and beat jet lag, I took a walk around the Marais after dropping off my bags at my apartment. Having left Canada in snow flurries, the bright blue skies and 20 degree temperatures felt invigorating! I grabbed a tea from my favourite tea institution, Mariage Freres, and a sandwich and began walking to Place des Vosges to have a picnic. As this was one of the first nice days in Paris this spring, I think the rest of Paris had the same idea! Although the lawn was packed with people, it was lovely to see everyone outside enjoying the beautiful weather in high spirits.
