My Lisboa Experience Part 1

Hi everyone! I am now in London after an amazing week of non stop unforgettable travel. This is the first place where I have a decent internet connection and I am really excited to get writing and uploading all the pictures I took.

Get excited because I have a loooot of pictures and stories to tell! When I photograph a city I try so hard to capture what it's really like. Like, I like going down back streets and city streets where there are apartments only and no statues or fancy stores because you get a feel of what the energy in the city is really like. Haha, I used 'like' so many times in the last sentences! I love seeing what the streets look like where they haven't tried to make it amazing or beautiful because they are usually beautiful anyway and you get an idea of their style and taste and what's practical to their climate.

I wish at times that I had a wide angle lens and I'm using a really old camera and I feel like I newer camera would capture colour better, but I do my very best. I'm probably my own worst critic, haha! I just want it to be perfect, that's all! Sometimes I use Ken's pictures if I didn't take any or they are of me, but this time all the pictures are mine. There will be some of Ken's pictures in other posts from the vacation, but they will be specifically credited. So all the pictures are mine unless stated otherwise.

I'm always trying to improve my photography so I enjoy long days in new cities a lot because I spend quite a lot of time photographing the things I really want to capture and find interesting.

I will tell you more about what it's like in Lisbon in part 2, but for now the pictures will have to tell their own stories. It feels amazing to be able to blog again! I will have a little bit of time to update my blog tomorrow as well before heading to New York. See you then <3

Dublin Tribute Part 3

Here is my third and last part of the Dublin Tribute series.

I think Dublin is such an under rated city with a lot more beauty and gorgeous spots than it ever gets credit for. I visited for the first time in 2008 and had such a great time. I had no idea I would ever live there at the time, but even then it had a special place in my heart. If you ever have the chance, you should visit. Although tourism is a big part of Dublin city as well, but I don't think it's half as bad as London and New York. You can experience Dublin's authenticity without fighting your way out of the crazy tourism prices yellow and red stickers and much too pricey deals.

When Travel Ready

I took these pictures before we left Wexford. All my old suitcases were torn up, missing handles, missing dragging handle thingy and so on so a new suitcase was in order. I loooved this spunky one that I had my eyes of forever. Ken also has new suitcases which was pure serendipity. His previous carry on suitcase broke and the flight company had to pay for a new one as they were the ones who broke it. Much later, while browsing a suitcase store, Ken found a matching suitcase to his new one of a great discount! That was so lucky and cool!

As you may know Ken and I moved out of our city apartment recently and this is what my key chain currently look like. No house keys whatsoever, only suitcase keys, bank chip, my 'luck' key chain with a horse, my Vienna Stadthalle key chain from where I saw Muse in Vienna and last, but not least my half-a-heart key chain that says Ken. Ken has the other half that says Emily. Needless to say I was very ready for my travel.
