Venice Blues

2

The island of Burano located about an hour boat ride from Venice is known for their colored houses and lace. The houses were painted different colors so when the sailors came home after a few drinks they could find their house. I was especially drawn to the beautiful blue doorways on this island. Here are a few!

Romantic streets of Europe

0

You never know what you are going to find on the streets of Europe. I always try to stay off the main path because its where where you find the classic scenes of European life. I happened to come across this street in Geneva Switzerland that had all different types of doorways and shutters. In front of each of the houses were different bikes. They are all so unique and filled with character. Here are two from the same street.

If you look in the window you can see the lace drawn curtain and the iron detail.

Laundry day the European way

Well I promised to tell you the ups and downs of living in Switzerland and well here is the first hiccup. I am staying at my friends house and I decided to do laundry. Well the machine broke… since there is no dryer my clothes are soaking wet drying in my room. Lets hope tomorrow turns out a little better!

Laundry day in Burano, Italy. Even on a cold January day laundry day includes hanging your clothes out to dry.

Discovering Geneva

1

A quick train ride away from Luassane is Geneva. A friend from high school is living here so we met for lunch. After lunch I set off to discover the back streets of Geneva. I loved this quaint street with bikes parked outside of each door. Although it wasn’t the door or the bike that caught my attention, its the green shutters.

The windows of Paris

I love all the beautiful windows you can find in Paris. Its important to look up when you walk because there is a lot you can miss out on. Here are a few of my favorites!

Walk the promenade in Nice, France and you are sure to find the beautiful carousel. You can pick an elephant or airplane to ride this nostalgic piece of art. Kids and adults alike can’t pass this up.

My love for Montpelier

I never would have stopped in Montpelier if I hadn’t taken the train to Nice. I am very happy I took this route. I only had a few hours in Montpelier before the sun went down but the time I spent exploring the city was amazing. Take a tour with me in the South of France to Montpelier.
