This edition of Photo Friday are about some places and things that are paradise to me.
Paradise often brings up the image of beaches and warm weather, but I like finding paradise wherever I go. I love visiting parks in the middle of cities. This is from Suomenlinna Fortress, an island fortress just outside of Helsinki. While this UNESCO world heritage site was pretty busy with tourists when I was there, I didn’t have to go too far to find a quiet and beautiful spot for myself.
Paradise in Madrid is food, like this plate of Huevos Rotos (it’s basically French Fries topped with fried egg and Iberico ham). Yum.
As a theatre nerd I have to say anytime I can see a live show (especially if it’s a Tony Award Winning production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch in New York City) well I’m all in.
New Orleans is paradise. It combined some of my favourite activities eating a lot of delicious food, and then walking around, snapping photos and taking in the vibe of this unique city.
I live in a landlocked province so I love any chance to be by the ocean. This is a photo I took last summer in Vancouver. The mountain and sea views in this city are always amazing.
I love going on a road trip and hitting the open road. This photo was taken in Northern Ontario when I was doing a solo road trip across Canada in 2013.
Montreal became one of my favourite cities. I loved wandering the streets and taking photos.
Paradise in my hometown of Edmonton, Canada. A nice view of the North Saskatchewan River Valley from the Hotel MacDonald.
