this is my favourite travel memory (multiplied)


You can't ask an indecisive person to choose just one...so here is a collection of travel memories that make me smile. (Buckle in).

The first photographs were taken during the Budapest Autumn Festival, at a night-time installation exhibition where artworks where projected onto buildings, trees and the ground. It was an incredible night and made you feel so submerged in the contemporary artistic movement that they have going on there. Budapest is a favourite of mine, (I love a good hot spring).
This was during our trip to Europe in 2005. Although not photographed one of my favourite memories, after a day of Gaudi, wonderful food, a siesta and just a general feeling of vibrancy, is wandering down to the Barcelona harbour with Eb. The water, an illuminated blue from the lights,
was filled with millions of carp swimming around. We just sat there,by ourselves, watching the fish, and I loved it.

I love the snow, like almost love nothing more than snowboarding with that boy. This is Mayrhofen, Austria in 2006. At the end of a day in this gorgeous environment nothing could beat sitting at the snowfield huts on a deckchair with a blanket and a beer. Bliss.

For number three, we are tracking back to 2003 in Banff, Canada. Cramped inside a van with 2 Aussies, 2 Canadians, 4 Mexicans, a Colombian and our luggage I wake up after a long drive to this. I am Australian so I don't see proper mountains with proper snow. Seeing this for the first time is storybook stuff.

There are many more, perhaps I will post travel reminiscing more often.
Thanks for the topic, thanks for the game.

WOW that mountain shot at the end is incredible. I agree us Aussie kids seem enamored by snow scenes, I know I am. I remember a similar experience, being on an overnight train trip, waking up in the morning to see that we were traveling along the foot of the swiss alps. It was very fairy tale.

p.s. thanks so much for your comment about Curvy, I'm SO stoked someone's seen it! :D

Girl after my own heart! I love Budapest too, and I adore snow (even though I don't ski or snowboard). Thanks for sharing these fun travel memories .... now I'm even more inspired to get back out there!
