15 of My Favorite Travel Photos from Around Europe

I've had the priviledge to travel to so many places in the past two years. Living in Europe has been a dream and I've been living my dream traveling to places like the Icelandic countryside to forests in Germany to the ancient city of Pompeii, each destiniation filling a new place in my heart and driving my love for travel.  Below is a compilation of 15 of my favorite travel photos that I've taken around Europe.  It's an accumulation of the past two years.  I've also loved seeing the evolution of my photography I'm always striving to learn something new.

  1. Great pictures! I love all of them... for some reason the hot chocolate one the most. :D

  2. I'm marking the chocolate museum down for our trip to Cologne for sure! All of these are fabulous!

  3. Brilliant photos! What memories you have. Where will your new adventures take you?

  4. Just read your post on the kurbis festival. I am so disappointed I missed it and this is our last year in Germany--Such a bummer I've never heard of it before. What a cool festival!

    1. Oh no! It is quite an awesome festival to see. Lots of pumpkin related foods and you can do a tour of the Ludwigsburg Palace.

  5. These are great photos! I love the bone church, Colmar, and the pumpkins. Cool

  6. Wow, beautiful photos! So hard to decide which is my favorite! But the bigger question for me is how have I been unaware of this pumpkin festival! (I'm in this phase of missing the autumn flavors of America and am actually hosting a "pumpkin brunch" tomorrow, featuring pumpkin-flavored things I've lugged back to Paris from Trader Joe's!)

    1. A pumpkin brunch? Sounds awesome, what sorts of foods are you making?

  7. You have had some wonderful travels! Love these photos, your Iceland sunset picture is beautiful.

  8. These pictures are amazing! Gives me that pain of Wanderlust deep in my belly! You've seen so much of Germany and I'm so jealous! Those are my favs :D
