Zurich, Switzerland, taken on August 5, 2012
I had no recollection of ever taking this photo but found it as I was organizing old photos from previous trips. A lone duck swimming in the clear green waters of Zurich…strangely, I kind of like it.
St. Andrews, Scotland, taken on November 26, 2016
Catching the sunset at the beach (West Sands, I believe?), I gasped in awe at the wonderful sight in front of me. I brought back many precious memories from my weekend in St. Andrews, though I lament that I couldn’t stay. At least…the feelings that I experienced those two short days will remain in my heart.
Le Semnoz, France, taken on March 21, 2013
The snowy hike on Le Semnoz during my third and final PhD training school was one of the most memorable events of my grad school days. Oh, it wasn’t a “gentle” hike, as advertised! However, my awesome colleagues made the trip infinitely much more enjoyable. Charge on, FunMates!
Florence, Italy, taken on December 19, 2013
At dusk, when the sky hadn’t gone completely dark at 5pm in December, Florence became lit up by streetlights on both sides of the Arno river. I had planned to be at the Piazzale Michelangelo (in the far distance in this photo) for a sunset from the hill with my dad, but train delays ruined the plan 😦 Still, old Firenze looked beautiful in the early evening!
