Travel for me is the ultimate freedom. And even though I feel like I've taken more 'beautiful' photos while travelling, this particular image comes close to perfectly summing up why I love to travel.
I've lost count of the amount of balmy summer evenings I've spent wandering the old towns of European cities. An amazing meal and a few drinks settling in my belly, and probably with a gelato in hand. The sky cooling to post-sunset tones, contrasting with the warm glow of street lamps and light spilling from windows. The uneven cobbles underfoot, worn smooth over hundreds of years from feet and wheels. The happy sounds of the laneways bustling with locals and tourists alike.
These are some of my happiest memories while travelling, and I hope this little laneway, bathed in the soft glow of street lamps in the Croatian city of Rovinj while inspire you to make your own amazing travel memories.
