A couple of summers ago, as a graduation gift, my mom took me to Québec City after visiting family in Chicoutimi. I had already seen it several times, considering I was lucky enough to have landed a job as a tour guide for the city a while back, but it was great seeing it again through the eyes of my mom. The old city is so beautiful and rich with history and culture. If you ever visit Canada, make sure to stop in Québec City; it is well worth it.
What can I say about Pérouges? It's a hidden gem, that's for sure. When we visited this Medieval village it was shocking to discover that we were but a few members of the small crowd that decided to visit this beautiful place. Fortunately for us, the empty streets provided an excellent backdrop for the hauntingly picturesque architecture and surroundings. Enjoy!
This city is incredible. During our second visit to Annecy a few years ago I found out a friend's family owned a house near by. I told him that I would marry him just so I could live here... if you look at the pictures, you may agree with me hahaha. We were extremely lucky because, during this first visit, carnival was happening so we had the opportunity to see the masquerade in action... so cool!!! What a gorgeous area.
Northern Ireland is absolutely beautiful. Five years ago I visited with a few friends and we traveled the country side to see Giant's Causeway. We all know that Ireland is very green; well here are a variety of pictures I took (the top one excluded) that prove how truly beautiful and green it is. Although Northern Ireland is stunning, its history is a turbulent one. Some photos you will see are of the peace wall in Belfast located between the Protestant and Catholic neighbourhoods; many people sign the wall to show their support in a peaceful existence between the two religions. The murals in Belfast are also dedicated to remembering its history.
