Ferrara Balloon Festival

Every year, in Autumn Europe’s hot air balloons descend upon Ferrara, in northern Italy. The 2013 festival has just started and as much as I would like to be there, I’m not. However, here are some of my photos from the 2008 festival.

Andalusia in 10 mobile phone photos or less

I have returned (reluctantly) from my Spanish holiday and mini inter-railing experience through Andalusia via Seville, Cordoba, Granada and finally Gibraltar, “Britain in the Sun.” I’m still going through photos from my proper camera, so here is a review of Andalusia in 10 mobile phone photos or less.

It's the weekend! But I'd still rather be back in Spain. #travel #granada

Mantova, Mantova

It’s the prime time of year for getaways. Unfortunately, my holiday is now over and I will be sharing the photos very soon. (Promise!) In 2008, I was lucky enough to spend a semester abroad and one of the day trips we took was to Mantova (Mantua).  Typical of many tiny towns in Italy, Mantova is absolutely packed with history and culture, but has it’s very own ‘feel’ to it. Another powerhouse (along with Florence and others) of Renaissance art and architecture in the Palazzo Te, Palazzo Ducale, and the great church designed by Leon Battista Alberti.
