In the middle

The other day, I took a walk in the woods. In the middle of the walk, in the middle of the forest, as it happened, there was an unexpected, beautiful little spot. It’s a reservoir surrounded by trees, a pathway with benches, and in the water there is a floating island of trees and bushes. [...]

You can find beauty in the smallest of places

Take a snail, a lot of patience, a macro lens, the artistic eye of Vyacheslav Mishchenko and you’ve got these incredible photographs. I was in awe of these photos when I first saw the “Magical World Of Snails” on Demilked (and still am!), so I had to share the magic with all of you. It’s [...]

A birthday spent on a flower island

For my birthday this year, I went to the beautiful island of Mainau in Konstanz, Germany. The island once belonged to royalty and now is home to a multitude of gorgeous flowers and trees. We’d heard of this island when we first moved here to Switzerland and have been wanting to go ever since. I’m [...]

Something you never did

When I first got here, I’d see this view from my window on most evenings. I’ve not seen it in ages as the weather has gotten colder and filled with clouds. At the moment, it’s hard to believe that this place had sunsets like this and is near sandy beaches. This quote from an unknown [...]

To harm oneself

This is Durdle Door here in beautiful Dorset. I think I’ve chosen one of the best locations to study wildlife conservation here in England. Durdle Door is a natural rock formation along the Jurassic Coast which is a World Heritage Site. I had the great pleasure of seeing it and there are many more photos [...]

The time we have rushed through life trying to save

In the center of Bournemouth, there’s a hot air balloon (pictured above) which you can go on and see the city from up high on nice, sunny days. I hope to one day go on it. In the meantime, I’ll admire it from the ground. These words by celebrity Will Rogers are one of those [...]

So this is Poole

You may remember my “I’m here!” post a while back which just so happens to be when I took all of these photos. I haven’t been taking nearly as many pictures as I did when I first arrived, but I think my camera is going to have to become a staple in my bag once [...]

Peace begins with a smile

This is a photo that I took on a stop during my bike trip yesterday. I’m really starting to like it here and having the beach so close is amazing and creates such a great atmosphere. Like I said before, I can’t help but smile. Smiles, when natural, seem to carry far beyond the face. [...]

She went to study at university by the seaside

All I could think of when working on this image was the tongue-twister: “She sells seashells by the seashore.” The town where I currently reside in here in England is so nice and when the sun is out I can’t help but smile as I walk by the water. I haven’t had enough time to [...]

Your life, because of who you are, has meaning

How amazing is this quote by Barbara de Angelis? I have so many “what if?” thoughts going through my head about my flight tomorrow and everything that’ll follow it, but I just need to calm down and trust. Trust that everything will work out just the way it needs to. I’m a huge ball of excitement, [...]
