Isle of Seil, Scotland, taken on September 3, 2016
As I was waiting for the bus to come pick me up near Ellenabeich on the Isle of Seil after a great hike yesterday, I noticed that the bus shelter was actually a mirror that reflected the road, the hill, and the cottage up ahead. It was getting chilly so I was glad that the bus came soon after!

Isle of Skye, Scotland, taken on July 1, 2016
The photos from Skye keep coming because it is just such a photogenic place! Isle of Skye means “the isle of mist”, and misty it was (occasionally) when our group took a tour around the island with Stuart from Misty Isle Tours. Driving over hills and valleys and passing by little villages on the road was certainly a good way to experience this wonderful Scottish isle!

Zhangjiajie, China, taken on August 11, 2010
I’ve always been fascinated by the snaking, zig-zaggy roads that lead to the top of the mountains in Zhangjiajie. We took the cable car up when we visited and that was how I was able to take this photo. Maybe the engineers had aesthetics in mind as they designed these roads because they certainly were quite magnificent!

Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, taken on November 1, 2011
Louvain-la-Neuve was the little place that I called home once in a while when I had to travel to my partner university during my PhD program, and a cosy little home it was. On this day, I went to Lake Louvain-la-Neuve again and this was the starting point of my walk. This curve caught my attention inexplicably as it was so…aesthetically pleasing. It was quite a grey day though, the skies overcast with impending rain.

(On the way to) Tobermory, Canada, taken on August 13, 2011
On the way to Tobermory with my ladies for a road trip in 2011, I sat beside the driver during the 3-hour trip. The highway stretched on so far at one point that it felt like we could keep driving into the horizon, into infinity.
