Sunset in Florence

I’m back in London after four fabulous days in Italy. I love visiting this country, and having already been to Rome, Verona and Venice, I was excited to explore some more Italian cities. This time my boyfriend and I went to Florence and Bologna. Our main reason for the trip was to see Radiohead perform at the Visarno Arena in Florence – a stunning setting for a phenomenal gig. But this was just the cherry on the cake. I’ll be sharing my photos over a few posts, but first I wanted to share one of my highlights. Watching the sun set over Florence. It’s a very touristy city, and I have to admit that it was a little too busy for us, but watching the sunset on the first night, we couldn’t deny it’s beauty.

I have to admit I’m particularly proud of the shot above, taken kneeling down next to a pool/fountain of some kind halfway up the hill which we had climbed to admire the view.

A weekend in Copenhagen

Last weekend my boyfriend and I spent the weekend in Copenhagen. We had a fab weekend, enjoying cycling around the city on the Saturday in glorious sunshine and taking in the sights. A slightly colder and cloudier Sunday saw us take shelter in Rosenborg Castle and a cosy coffee shop before our flight home. We enjoyed wonderful food, especially at Gorilla in which we had a 10-course tasting menu and an intriguing bottle of wine. It’s a great city to explore and here are some of my photos from our city break.

 

We also visited the Copenhagen Botanic Garden so look out for another post to follow soon with my photos of the plants in their amazing glasshouses!
