Huế, Vietnam, taken on December 27, 2015

A year ago I was in Huế, Vietnam, where my friend and I got (more than) slightly lost in a local area and had a difficult time spotting a taxi.

Catching the sunset at the beach (West Sands, I believe?), I gasped in awe at the wonderful sight in front of me.

Glasgow, Scotland, taken on August 24, 2015

When the dark clouds loom over your head every day for three weeks straight and you haven’t seen a sliver of sunshine, it may feel like the sun will never appear again. You have forgotten what blue skies look like – you ARE blue. But one sunny afternoon is all that it takes to restore hope in this city amidst the seemingly never-ending rain. The sun will rise again!
