Postcards from Bruges

Postcards from Bruges

‘Bruges is a beautiful medieval city, almost untouched by time.’ – James Frain.

The Long Journey Home: A Taste of Europe Part 2

Above: Eiffel Tower and the Seine. The mood of this photo matched mine that morning – not exactly glum or gloomy but definitely overcast and sombre! It’s hard reaching the end of your travels and knowing you’ll soon be parting ways with your best friend after spending so much together. ‘Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.’ – Omar Khayyam. We travelled to six cities in Europe before arriving back in the UK on 16th June. After…
