The Love Lockdown

Couples lock down their vows over the Eiserner Steg in Germany, which stands proud over River Main linking Frankfurt’s city centre to the district of Sachsenhausen. Another lover’s bridge marked with everlasting passion symbolized by the act of locking with a sense of resilient security and firm, unyielding permanence. The irony of these very metalContinue reading “The Love Lockdown”

Schloss Leopoldskron, Salzburg

A glimpse of the rococo villa from the bank across, while surrounded by a gorgeous bevy of swans. Contrary to popular belief, the Schloss Leopoldskron palace was never used as the Von Trapp villa in Robert Wise’s Sound of Music! Leopoldskron Palace is privately owned and not accessible to the general public, unless you’re aContinue reading “Schloss Leopoldskron, Salzburg”

Travel-diary: Red Square, Moscow

Hello from Moscow! It’s been raining a lot when we arrived, unfortunately we chose a damp, drizzly and cold summer day to go to Red Square at the heart of the city.

Built circa 1080 Milan, Northern Italy The walls of the Basilica The confession chamber. Speak the truth, even if your voice quivers.

Travel-diary: Melbourne

Perhaps I’m not too much of a winter person. Hiding from the incessant drizzle in the heated warmth of the hotel just shows what a coward I am! Checked in at Rendezvous Melbourne in the evening.
