Apr 06, 2016 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Night in Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain, taken on April 2, 2016

The area around Plaça d’Espanya, where the National Art Museum of Catalonia (pictured above) is situated, is my favourite place in Barcelona. I visited it during the day five year ago and was able to see its stunning lights and the “Magic Fountain” during my most recent visit less than a week ago. Magnificent!

Oct 24, 2015 – [Saturday] Letters of the Alphabet: N(ight) flight

Toronto, Canada, taken on October 18, 2015

The trip back from Toronto to Glasgow last week was an overnight flight and a perfect opportunity to see the lights of Toronto from high up. I think if I were to sit by the window on the other side, I would have gotten an even more spectacular view of downtown Toronto at night, but I was happy with this one. Bye for now, Canada.

Oct 11, 2015 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy Place

Bordeaux, France, taken on December 23, 2012

There was one specific occasion engraved in my mind where I felt genuinely and completely happy. It was an evening in December 2012 at the Bordeaux Christmas market, with a friend alongside me strolling through the colourful booths in the light rain. For some reason the company and the atmosphere made me feel so content, so joyful, and from that day onward, that exact spot where the Christmas markets are held every year has become my happy place, somewhere only I know.

Sep 02, 2015 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Hong Kong

Hong Kong, China, taken on April 3, 2015

I think I should be allowed to post the obligatory I’ve-been-to-Hong-Kong-and-seen-the-impressive-skyline-by-night-and-therefore-took-a-nice-photo-of-it photo, even though everyone else who’s been to Victoria Harbour at night has probably taken the exact same photo. C’mon, it’s pretty, and you know I can’t resist night lights 😉
