Fenghuang, China, taken on August 14, 2010
The ancient town of Fenghuang in the Hunan province of China is filled with a specific type of characteristic architecture called “hanging leg houses” (literal translation from Chinese). I certainly see why they got this name – the houses do seem like they’ve got their legs just dangling in the water!
Luxembourg City, Luxembourg, taken on March 27, 2011
The visit to Luxembourg was more than five years ago, and I still remember looking down into the Grund district from the top of the city valley. The entire city is a huge valley and actually would be a fun place to play a huge game of hide-and-seek 😉
Dinant, Belgium, taken on October 23, 2011
Perhaps not many people know about Dinant, but it is a real gem in Belgium. When I stepped out of the train at Dinant, I felt like I was dropped inside a fairy tale. Such a magical place! Next time you plan a trip to Belgium, consider Dinant instead of/in addition to Bruges 😉
Dunkeld, Scotland, taken on October 8, 2016
The Black Linn Falls at the Hermitage near Dunkeld is so far the most beautiful waterfall I’ve seen in Scotland, and if you know me well, you know that I love waterfalls! Of course this was the perfect chance to add to my “Food and the Scotland hikes” collection…except that McDonald’s forgot to put cream cheese in my bagel!
Colmar, France, taken on June 1, 2013
Colmar is an attractive city in the Alsace region of France and is an easy day trip from Strasbourg. The colourful half-timbered architecture is the defining feature of Colmar, just like in other cities in Alsace. How lovely it was to take a stroll here!
