My many first loves. Italy. Spain. France. 2012.
Save Place
16039 Sestri Levante, Metropolitan City of Genoa, Italy
In Sestri Levante, my method of relaxation was wholly the beaches and the food. Luckily, the town was prime for that. Whether in the Baia delle Favole (Bay of the Fables, pictured) or the Baia del Silenzio (Bay of Silence, not pictured), the...
Save Place
16039 Sestri Levante, Metropolitan City of Genoa, Italy
After travelling through the bustling cities of Rome and Venice, Sestri Levante was quite a relaxation destination. A gem hidden of the Cinque Terre, Sestri Levante is home to two bays that provide equally outstanding views and warm water. A...
Save Place
Place Charles de Gaulle, 78100 Saint-Germain-en-Laye, France
Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye. One of the lesser-known, but just as incredible, châteaus in the suburbs of Paris. I flew to Paris and was wandering around the grounds of the beautiful château forty-five minutes after leaving the airport . The...

Okendo Kalea, 1, 20004 Donostia, Gipuzkoa, Spain
San Sebastián, or Donostia in the Basque language, is a Belle Époque resort town built around the Bay of La Concha. Stroll the cobblestone Old Town streets in search of cozy shops, the city’s oldest church (San Vicente) and celebrated restaurants...
Save Place
Calle del Scaleter, 767, 30125 Venezia VE, Italy
Only every once in a while do you come across a phenomenal waiter. A dedicated and inspired individual who encourages you to taste as much as he encourages you to eat. Everywhere we visited in Europe offered spectacular food, but the service...
Save Place
San Sebastián, Gipuzkoa, Spain
I can recall countless evenings of walking down the pier in San Sebastian, and being caught--each night without fail--by an overwhelming sense of happiness when the sun would begin to set. Summer sunsets are captivating on their own, but there is...
