I (may) have answers.
Do you take all the photographs?
Sometimes, but more often than not my talented boyfriend and frequent travel companion Ken Grunberg does the picture taking.
Where is the header photo from?
The original image of the woman on a swing is by German photographer Sibylle Bergemann, but it has been altered to suit this banner. You can see it in context or learn more about her stunning photographs.
The background map is of the volcanic island of Santorini, Greece.
Does your blog offer advertising opportunities?
I am currently considering opening up ad spots to selected advertisers. I will not however, include paid links or sponsored posts. For more info and rates please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What’s been your best trip to date?
I should probably say that every place is unique and beautiful in it’s own way, but actually my happiest travel experience thus far has been Iceland. It blew me away. If you have a chance—go! Iceland seemed to enjoy our visit too.
Here’s a short list of some places I’m convinced are magical:
1. The Skywalk Trail in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada. A boardwalk leading to a heavenly spot overlooking shimmering blue waters and rolling hills of Cape Breton National Park.
2. Dyrhólaey cliffs in southern Iceland. The favourite nesting spot for colonies of puffins surrounded by columns of lava, black sand beaches and ocean as far as the eye can see.
3. Monteverde cloud forest in Costa Rica.
4. Banyan Tree Park, Lahaina, Maui. The park is comprised of a single tree with a dozen trunks. It shades a 200-foot area.
5. Plitvice Lakes, Lika, Croatia. A national park surrounded by mountains and dotted with waterfalls and small lakes of everchanging colours, from grey to aqua depending on the sun’s angle and mineral content.
1. Sagrada Familia Cathedral, Barcelona, Spain. Gaudí’s unfinished artistic masterpiece.
2. Kalemegdan Fortress Roman ruins in Belgrade, Serbia.
3. Old British Reading Room, British Museum, London, England
4. Studenica Monastery, central Serbia. UNESCO World heritage site.
5. Piazza del Campidoglio, Rome, Italy. Michelangelo designed this public square.
Why is there no guide to Toronto?
Ah, well it’s the place that I live, so it’s hard to see it through tourist eyes and do a generalized post. I am however working on a series of posts by locals on their favourite spots, so watch for that soon. If you are interested in anything specific (restaurants, arts, or even dog parks) contact me and I will definitely send you some recommendations.
