i only visited for a few days back in 2006,
but that fall foliage was to die for.

florence, italy

i know that i just got here, and maybe it's too soon to say, but i think i love being here. maybe it's just the newness and the wonder of being somewhere so rich with history, but every morning when i cross this bridge going to school, i smile.

englischer garten
munich, germany

it was so beautiful and green and calm when i went to visit. i wish i had had more time to get lost in it but i guess that's just another reason to go back again :)

santa cruz, california

so i know it isn't exotic or anything,
but being surrounded by redwoods yet being so close to the ocean
is a wonderful feeling.

nauplion, greece

my first city out of dirty, busy athens.
this little town warmed my heart with my first glimpse of greece's real beauty.

inside churches, anywhere
{this one taken in delphi, greece <3}

maybe it was my upbringing,
but sitting in an empty, quiet church fills me with awe.
