A couple of years ago I (Mo) had the amazing experience of being able to study abroad in the heart of Tuscany in the town of Siena, Italy. Really, this was the beginning of a love-affair that has yet to cease. I was "bit-by-the-bug" some may say. It was, for the first time, I had been struck with the passion that comes from recognizing how vast the world really is and how much wander there is in every single glance. I wanted to see more, learn more and experience more of what this world had to offer, and it all began with Italia!
Where: St. Andrews, Scotland
What better way to experience Scotland than to go spend some time in a charmingly quaint and historic town? Many know it as the "home of golf" and have spent several Sunday afternoons laying on the couch witnessing it's scenery in the background of the tube as the great golf icons of the day battle it out for the Claret Jug. For those of you who feel completely lost right about now do not fret because there are plenty of non golf related sights to go around in this picturesque small town in the Kingdom of Fife.
Where: Dublin, Ireland
When we began planning our trip to Europe this summer we found that flying through Ireland rather than flying directly to Scotland or Britain was a much cheaper option. Both of us have always wanted to go to this beautiful land. We constantly see images that depict the lush greenery and monumental landmarks so we jumped at the opportunity to take a stop in this iconic country. We didn't have the chance to take day trips away from Dublin. We were only there for 24 hours. However, after conversing with the locals and frequent visitors we learned that a return trip to Ireland was a must and that the true Irish lifestyles are truly depicted once you get out of the hustle and bustle of Dublin. Something we didn't get to experience on this trip but would love to go back and see.
The city of London is full of exceptional photo opportunities but sometimes so many options can be overwhelming. Here are five photos that, in our opinion, you simply cannot return home without. Now some of them may be typical but keep in mind that setup and timing play a huge role in getting that perfect photo and that is where WE come in.
