Reykjavik, Iceland, taken on August 23, 2015
Whoever said Harpa (concert hall in Reykjavik) is “a photographer’s dream” is a genius. Geometry, colours, style, patterns, delicacy – you name it, Harpa has it. I almost didn’t think of entering the building, which would have become a huge regret (although I wouldn’t have known), but now, Harpa has become one of my favourite spots in Reykjavik. And I won’t hesitate going back to this city, this country that I love so much.
Beautiful day out, even a bit on the hot side. Toronto skipped spring and went straight from winter to summer, it seems. I’ve been to the beach at the Scarborough Bluffs plenty of times but this was the first time I’m seeing the lakefront from the top of the cliffs themselves, at Cathedral Bluffs Park. Toronto is not close to the sea, but we get our fair share of Lake Ontario, quite reminiscent of the Atlantic 😛
Hear me out before you start judging me (is WordPress gonna let me go through with this?)…Pornic is a town in Pays de la Loire in western France…funny name, huh? Well, that’s precisely why I made the unplanned detour to this coastal town, just to see what it’s like, and it turns out that Pornic is actually quite a cute little town! With 8 hours to spare in Nantes and a one-way trip that took only an hour and a half, I spent 2.5 hours in Pornic, walking along the paths towards the edge of the town to see the Atlantic Ocean. There was a château, and yes, there were boats, lots of boats! Even though it was extremely windy, the most unexpected part of my 4-day trip became the best part. Adios and back to Bordeaux!
