Lambic Belgium Experience

Lambic Belgium Experience

There are many ways to experience a place. Certainly, you should try to get a glimpse into where a place began, and museums and historic buildings, monuments, and squares are great for helping you get a better understanding of where you are. The food, the music, the people (and their culture), each individually can be enough to fill weeks of your time in any place, depending on how deep you wish to go. This trip,…

Bohemian Paris

Bohemian Paris

When you arrive at a train station in Paris, either coming from the airport or by rail from a nearby city, province, or country, you can feel the spirit of the city. Paris is a place of revolutions, artists, and existential philosophers, and for a period, the favorite city and second home of the great American writers. Paris is a bohemian city, so different than the rest of France that people joke about the Parisian…

Street Art in Paris

Street Art in Paris

Paris has produced some of the most prolific, though not always the most renowned, street artists. SpaceInvader may be the most famous, his works plastered on many street corners, giving a commentary on the area, the building, or the street itself.                   Clet Abraham, a French artist who now lives in Florence, has a good amount of work displayed around the city as well. He usually turns…

Street Art Ljubljana

Street Art Ljubljana

Ljubljana may be my current favorite city in the world. Of course, I tend to fall in love with a lot of places, having sworn in the past to move to Amsterdam, Koh Lanta (Thailand), Bali, and Plovdiv (Bulgaria). Who would have thought I would find yet another paradise in Slovenia. Though Ljubljana is the capital and largest city in Slovenia, it has only 300,000 inhabitants, and even that number surprises some of the locals….

Street Art | Budapest

Street Art | Budapest

Street art is as important as the art you find displayed in galleries. Not all of it is good, and much of it is not, but the streets are not the artist’s studios where creativity explodes with no bounds. We;, except for the law anyway. But we’re talking art, so F#&% authority, convention, and rules. When we first arrived in Budapest, we took a bus to a train from the airport into the city. The…

Bohemian Photo Journal | Budapest

Bohemian Photo Journal | Budapest

Our second installment of the Budapest photo journal… Budapest is somewhat cold right now, as is much of the world for this time of year – April, 2015. It hasn’t stopped us from exploring, shielding ourselves from blistering winds, the occasional rain, and the cloudy backdrop and blanket of a grey sky. The weather doesn’t detract from the charm of the city, and gives us more excuses to stop at cafes for an espresso or beer, and…

Budapest | Photo Journal (First Days)

Budapest | Photo Journal (First Days)

Like so many European cities, or anywhere in the world, it is easy to capture brush strokes and details that are unique, if not in subject, at least in perspective, interpretation, and expression. Budapest is no exception. We decided to stay in Hungary’s largest city for a month, and for the first time, will keep an ongoing photo journal of the experiences we have and moments we capture. All of these images were captured on…

Slovenia, Ljubljana | City of Dragons

Slovenia, Ljubljana | City of Dragons

Most people have never heard of Slovenia. Fewer still have heard of its capital, Ljubljana. This quaint town inhabited fewer than 50,000 people only a century ago; now it boasts a population of nearly 300,000. As the largest city in this Central European nation state, Ljubljana isn’t that imposing, but full of character, life, and history. Though unassuming, the cities symbol is the dragon, emphasizing power, courage, and greatness. It is no wonder that it…

Sarajevo – Scars of War

Sarajevo – Scars of War

Our bus journey from Niš, Serbia, to Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina, was thirteen hours of sheer beauty. We wound through fields and farms, curving around rolling hills that extended across winding rivers toward mountains that disappeared against the backdrop of a clear blue summer sky. As we zoomed through the tunnels cut into the mountainside, the emerald waters of the river glowed bright green below. Our path widened and narrowed along the cliffs with an endless view of tree groves….

My Göteborg – Photography by Madlén Hjelmroth

My Göteborg – Photography by Madlén Hjelmroth

I’ve traveled to Gothenborg (Göteborg), Sweden, many times since my childhood, visiting family for a couple weeks or a month when I can. Unlike many travel destinations, Goteborg is not known for monuments and sights the way France, Italy, China, or many other countries are. And we tend to not think of Sweden as a cultural or culinary center; it’s generally not on our travel list. Fellow traveler and local Goteborian photographer, Madlén Hjelmroth, brings…

Vienna Street Art

Vienna Street Art

Vienna is often called The City of Music, but lesser known as also being The City of Dreams. Though it is aptly named for having been the home of the world’s first psycho-analyst, we thought of Vienna as such because it was here we were planning out our travels for the rest of 2014 that would carry us into 2015. The city itself was inspiring, with art plastered as facade or street art at every…
