once upon a time (that’s how this feels) we took a train trip from prague to füssen then hopped on a bus to hohenschwangau and made our way up the hill to the neuschwanstein castle. fun!

it’s actually pretty funny to see superman standing amongst the allied soldiers (in that scene, neuschwanstein castle in bavaria). there is a book called the monuments men which i have been meaning to pick up, which tells the story of the group of curators, archivists, artists & art historians who set out to find all the art and other treasures that the nazis had looted and hidden across europe during WWII. check out their official website, it’s super interesting.

berlin

i didn’t take a lot of photos in berlin, so i guess this isn’t an accurate description of what i saw & took in on my trip there. when you travel so much you sometimes get lazy on the photography front, thinking it will be all good & you’ll just remember it all. but you don’t! you should take pics all the time.

Paris 48°50N 2°23E

in each city ami asks 50 of its inhabitants to hand-draw a map to a place of their choosing, a place that is significant or important to them personally, for any reason. she then uses the maps to navigate to each location and take a photograph to represent each location. the ° books portray a side of each city as interpreted by those who live and work in it every day. its not a “guide” to the new café or club, but rather, a unique way of discovering different parts of the city.

amalfi

from a trip to italy, 2003. i remember it being reported as the hottest italian summer in decades – that water was heaven.

i do realise that’s two italian summery posts in the space of 2 days – but i’m craving warm weather!
