I see it in your eyes...

A big thank you to my friend who volunteered to model for me. Isn't she pretty?

Orchid Fever

I love orchids. I have nothing more to say. They are just beautiful! Sometimes I think roses are over rated because there are so many beautiful flowers in this world but then again you just can go wrong with the classic symbol of love. And what is life without love. Empty. Lonely. Miserable. I have yet to find love but I also haven't lost hope. I keep looking. Perhaps in all the wrong places. But it's just the beginning, it's not the end. It's spring after all and it's time for new journeys. Happy Spring!

Egg Salad + Baguette

I'm contemplating the purchase of a new camera so I borrowed my friends new Nikon D3100 to take it for a spin. I'll post more pics from my day of exploring this cool camera. Another friend was making an egg salad sandwich and I have to saw it was delish. So easy to do yet I never bother to make it. There's no secret to this recipe...just everything you see in the pic.

(not) another protest

I feel like there's a protest almost every day here and I'm not even exaggerating. Ok perhaps every other day. I'm all for people exercising their civic responsibility but sometimes I feel like saying 'get a real job'. Side note: this cop on the right looked like he was going to kill me. Lighten up officer.

Istanbul Harbour

It seems my dear friends in Toronto are experiencing some snow in the early days of Spring so just wanted to post this to keep them hopeful for a beautiful Spring. It's just around the corner! If it doesn't come soon enough well tomorrow's Friday! Something else to look forward to!

A glass a day keeps the doctor away...

Why not start the week off with a nice glass of white wine?!

The Blue Mosque, Istanbul

One of the most peaceful and beautiful places. The architecture is just incredible with so much history attached. Hope you find your happy place for a moment of peace this Sunday.

Airplanes and shooting stars...

I hate flying in the winter. There is always some sort of delay. Have you ever seen a plane de-ice? It's pretty cool and sometimes I get jealous that the plane gets more attention than me. Sometimes I wish I could stand on the runway while a machine splashes lime green fluid on me while I twist and turn and whip my hair. Sorry I got carried away. I think this pic was in Munich.

Toronto Blues

I wish they'd do more with the waterfront but at least there's this pretty boat to look at.

Barcelona Views

Two of my favorite photos of Barcelona looking from Parc Guell. This is where the magic happens. I love this spot in the city far away from the traffic and the hustle of city life. This is where I go to de stress and let my thoughts wander. I hope it inspires you to find some peace and quiet this weekend.

French Vistas

How I miss watching those southern France sunsets over a glass of wine.

I love Innsbruck. The colours, the smells, the people. I love it all. The best time is during the winter when they have the Christmas market.

Sunny Days and Mondays

It doesn't have to be a rainy Monday like that old song. I say start the week fresh with a five star attitude. To help you here are some sunny pics from Nice. I would love to own that Vespa by the way.

Sunday Swiss Market

Sunday in Geneva means open market. The chance for people to sell their outdated useless stuff. It's also a great opportunity to find some rare finds. Of course the name of the game is BARGAIN!
On another note...finally yesterday I took the plunge and registered to do a run in early Aril of about 12km. So today I was up early and training. Good motivation!

Vintage Closing

The vintage store near my store had a closing sale and my friend decided to drag me there because really it's not about what you need, it's about how much you can bargain. I didn't find much of interest except this stack of magazines. It's always interesting to go through fashion trends through the times.

Someone call a taxi..

Do you know what day it is? It's Friday!! Someone call me a taxi I'm heading to the nearest bar! These shots were taken in Toronto. All these taxis were waiting to take the suits (businessmen/women) home. Have a superb weekend!

Tyrolean Experience

What a horrible day we are having here today...rain rain rain. I wish I could just be at home right cuddled up watching a movie with some tea and chocolate.
