Photo of the Week: Roaring Athabasca Falls

On Alberta’s Icefields Parkway, there is evidence of the eponymous icefields everywhere. If you can’t see a glacier perched precariously on a mountaintop, you’re sure to be able to see a glacier-fed river following the road or a brilliantly-coloured lake filling up the next valley over. It’s not surprising that travel publications like National Geographic…

Photo of the Week: Arriving in Trstenik

Now that I’ve sorted out the fact that I left my laptop charger at home on my latest trip, I can finally bring you the Photo of the Week! I knew that the Croatian islands were gorgeous. We’d spent our first night in port at Hvar, a party island off the coast of Split. As…

Photo of the Week: On the Path to Victory

For someone that hasn’t played tennis in a year and a half, I’ve done pretty well at the Grand Slams this year. In Australia, I watched Novak Djokovic defeat Stan Wawrinka in an epic 5-setter that took over 5 hours to finish (and also conveniently finished only 5 hours before my flight home to Brisbane).…

Photo of the Week: Nijmegen By Night

Often, the best travel experiences are the ones that are unexpected. That was certainly the case on my tour of Nijmegen; while many of our scheduled activities were quite interesting (I’ll be writing about those in coming weeks), one of my best memories is of the night we had to ourselves to explore the streets…

Photo of the Week: Sideways Paris

Paris. It’s a gorgeous city that lends itself perfectly to being photographed from any angle. While I have a lot of “normal” photos of the city at the angle it’s usually seen from, some of my favourites are the ones I shot at weird slants like the one above of the Rue de Rivoli. Right…

Photo of the Week: The Louvre in Monochrome

I suppose it’s cliché to say that Paris is a city that lends itself well to black and white, but it’s so very true. From the moment I stepped out of Gare du Nord onto a street full of ornate buildings, neon signs for creperies, and the most uncourteous drivers I’ve ever seen, I was…

Photo of the Week: Quirky, Beautiful Amsterdam

The side of Amsterdam that I loved the most is not the side you often hear about. Sure, the red light district was interesting (where else in the world can you find a church, a daycare centre, and windows with prostitutes all in the same place?), but the thing I enjoyed the most in Amsterdam…

Photo of the Week: Perched Above the Rhine

As part of my ongoing preparation for the first of two Three Peaks Challenges at the end of the month, I began my trip to Germany by doing a three-day hike on the relatively new Rheinsteig track. Established in 2005, this track encompasses over 320km of hills, castles, wineries, and villages in 23 day-long stages.…

Photo of the Week: Calm in Cologne Cathedral

I’ve been to a number of European cathedrals, but I was still blown away by Kölner Dom (Cologne Cathedral). I was impressed by the sheer size of the building as I stood, feeling very minute, under its towering spires. It’s easy to see how construction could have taken over 600 years (it started in 1248…

Photo of the Week: A Stroll Past the Humber Bridge

My trip to Europe this year has been a good mixture of new and old. You’ve probably seen a lot of the “new” if you’ve been reading this blog in the last month as I recount the fun times I had in Lapland. However, I haven’t really mentioned the “old,” the things that are so…
