Save Place
2961 Kinderdijk, Netherlands
When waterways in the Netherlands freeze into glittering paths, overjoyed residents take to the ice. Visitors can buy or rent a pair of noren (traditional long-blade skates) to glide across town or take part in one of the country’s dozens of...
Save Place
Old Town, Slovakia
One of the main shopping districts in the downtown area of Bratislava. A charming mix of fancy and historic.
Save Place
811 06 Bratislava-Old Town, Slovakia
This spot has been occupied for thousands of years as a central point to the region, even before the Bratislava or Slovakia even existed. This castle was first built in the 10th century, and saw it's own experiences of different rulers, different...
Save Place
Hviezdoslavovo námestie 132/1, 811 02 Bratislava, Slovakia
A cultural centerpiece of Bratislava. You might have seen this building in a few movies, although the "scenes" were meant to be cities like Vienna. Regardless, it's a beautiful building with loads of history behind it that's still in use today...
Save Place
Hviezdoslavovo námestie 188/6, 811 02 Bratislava, Slovakia
Located in a square named after him, he was a Slovak poet, dramatist, translator and for a short time member of the Czechoslovak parliament. The square is a beautiful walk as you make your way to the National Theater.
Save Place
Old Town, Slovakia
I mainly stopped off in Bratislava to take an afternoon break between Vienna and Budapest, but Bratislava Old Town really surprised me. Old Town was filled with street art and statues. This street performer was imitating a bronze statue found near...
Save Place
Bratislava, Slovakia
Walking around the historic downtown area of Bratislava, I was pleased to come upon this little piece of clever utilitarian art. Any city planner can decide where to place a manhole cover on the street. But it takes someone with a little foresight...
Save Place
Herengracht 427, 1017 BR Amsterdam, Netherlands
I love the lighting and dignity of this cat, just standing near the Rijksmuseum.
Save Place
2961 Kinderdijk, Netherlands
Kinderdijk is one of the Netherlands' most popular tourist sites, as you would have guessed, since it is a series of windmills. Of course when you think of the Netherlands (or Holland, as most refer to the country as), you think of windmills... or...
Save Place
Dam, 1012 JS Amsterdam, Netherlands
The last night in Amsterdam we are walking near Dam Square. We have been to the Van Gogh Museum earlier and are still marveling at his brilliance. I take two photos nearby and then this one which somehow transforms into a Van Gogh styled image, by...
Save Place
Mount Pilatus, 6010 Alpnach, Switzerland
The view from our gondola ride up to the top of the beautiful Mt Pilatus. Obviously, it was freezing and although the sun seems to be almost completely hidden by fog here, once up the mountain is was blindingly bright!
Save Place
Denkmalstrasse 4, 6002 Luzern, Switzerland
I was forewarned that this monument to the slain Swiss soldiers killed in France was deeply moving, and that Mark Twain had called it "the saddest and most moving piece of rock in the world." I still wasn't prepared for how heartwrenching it was....
Save Place
Marienbrücke, 87645 Schwangau, Germany
For a year, Neutshwanstein is undergoing repair. Hence the north-face is almost covered in scaffolds. Yet, it doesn't keep the castle from looking like a dream. The best view can be had from Marienbrucke.
Save Place
Heidelberg, Germany
On a sunny spring afternoon, the slope below the ruins of the castle in Heidelberg, where 'sheep may safely graze'...almost absurdly picturesque. One of my most vivid childhood memories is of visiting this castle with an 'uncle and auntie'--close...
Save Place
Domkloster 4, 50667 Köln, Germany
The cathedral is the largest Gothic church in Northern Europe and has the second-tallest spire and largest façade of any church in the world....
Save Place
Neuschwansteinstraße 20, 87645 Schwangau, Germany
Once I had experienced the obligatory tour of Neuschwanstein Castle (located in southwest Bavaria, Germany), I wanted to escape the masses and was particularly keen on taking my own "perfect postcard" photos of the castle. This was not difficult...
Save Place
50679 Cologne, Germany
Love Padlocks (also known as Love Locks) are a custom by which padlocks are affixed to the bridge/fence as a way to symbolize everlasting love....The keys to the lock are symbolically thrown into the rushing water below so the lock cannot be...
Save Place
Budapest, Vámház krt. 1-3, 1093 Hungary
If you are fortunate enough to find yourself in Budapest, then hurry on over to Nagycsarnok--The Great Market Hall on Fővám Tér for lunch. Go directly upstairs and have some authentic Hungarian Goulash or Hungarian Stuffed...
Save Place
You can find an amazing citadel perched on the southern most hill of Budapest. I suggest starting at the bottom of the hill near the Gellért Hotel and Spa. From there you simply follow the trails and stairs that take you up toward the...
Save Place
Budapest, Attila út 22, 1013 Hungary
Doorway of one of the buildings that caught my eye. Yes it's just a door, but sometimes you need to stop and admire the craftsmanship and beauty of the simple things we take for granted.
Save Place
Budapest, Szentháromság tér, 1014 Hungary
How I love Budapest. Both sides of the river, the Buda and the Pest, equally. At night, there is something especially lovely about the Buda side and a visit to the enchanting interior of the Matthias Church is a requirement, as well as time to...
Save Place
Budapest, Széchenyi Lánchíd, 1051 Hungary
A famous structure in Budapest. Comparable to the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City.
Save Place
Budapest, Kossuth Lajos tér 1-3, 1055 Hungary
There is just too much of this buildings to capture nicely in one photo, but I wanted to get a good glimpse of this ornate Gothic building.
Save Place
Budapest, Pesti alsó rkp., Hungary
It's a memorial to the Budapest Jews who fell victim to the Arrow Cross militiamen in Budapest and depicts their shoes left behind on the bank when they fell into the river after having been shot during World War II.
