Corsica is a stunning island located in the Mediterranean sea, located southeast of the French mainland and west of the Italian Peninsula and one of the 18 regions of France. It is the fourth largest island in the Mediterranean, after Sicily, Sardinia and Cyprus, yet mountains make up two-thirds of the island. However, there are still many breathtaking and interesting places to visit on the island especially […]
I took this from inside the face of a clock.
I was visiting the Musee D’orsay in Paris, France when the gallery tour lead me to a dead end and the back of a massive clock. I’m not even sure if it worked. I never saw any moving pieces or mechanisms. I didn’t care what time it read.
Time seemed to stand still momentarily as I stood there staring at it.
My time in Europe was coming to an end. In less than a week, I’d have to give up my daily routine of exploring new cities and fly back home to Canada.
It didn’t matter. I was still standing in a foreign country, in an art museum, inside the face of giant clock. Somewhere that I’d never been before. Somewhere that I might never see again. I checked the time.
I was thankful.
You meet interesting people when you walk cross a new country.
I met a man from Argentina who was wearing the ugliest red sweater. He wore it every time that I saw him. He didn’t have much of a sense of style. He didn’t seem to care. He studied physics, back in his home country.
We met in Munich, but I took this picture of him in Amsterdam at the Van Gogh Museum. It was the last day that I saw him in person.
We still talk from time to time.

Venezia! There is no city like Venice, Italy.
A city with no roads, where people get around either by foot or by boat. There are narrow pathways leading to dead ends and towers that look like they are about to topple over. If you don’t know where you’re going in Venice, you are likely to end up being lost.
It didn’t take me long after arriving to realize that the best way to get around in Venice, is to just walk. Explore every alley, cross every bridge and just let myself be lost.
Centuries worth of history dot the streets of Rome, Italy. There are fountains and temples, ruins and elaborate marble statues.
Rome was one of my favourite places that I’ve been too. It boasts some of the oldest monuments that I have ever laid eyes on. I love the way that Rome has so much antiquity and is still a modern city. The old with the new. You can walk down a street that looks like any other modern street in 2017 and then turn a corner and feasts your eyes on the two thousand year old ruins of the Roman Colosseum.
I took many pictures ancient ruins, but I quite like this shot that I took of these featuring a more modern side of such an old city.
The sun was shining in a bright blue sky. It’s rays were warm but the cool ocean breeze was brisk and sent a shiver down my spine. I was walking across Scheveningen beach on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in Den Haag, Netherlands.
I took in the scene and breathed in the fresh salt air. The seagulls cawed. In the distance, I could see cargo ships lurking across the horizon. I directed my eyes to the west and imagined the vastness of the ocean that lay between me and my home. The distance was immense.
I felt the crunch of shells and frosty sand below my boots. I looked down so as not to miss a single detail and stumbled upon this dried starfish laying in the sand. I don’t know how long it had been there, but I like to think that it had been waiting there just for me to find it.
