They don’t call Prague the City of a hundred Spires for nothing. This nickname came about in the 19th century when there were 103 spires. Today Prague has more than 500 hundred spires! -

The famous Nyhavn Canal in Denmark. The brightly coloured buildings that line the canal were constructed in the 17th and 18th centuries. -

This is probably my favourite photo that I took the whole of my Europe adventure. This, if you haven’t guessed it already, is of the famed canals of Amsterdam. In the background you can see the Rijksmuseum. -

The good thing about a sea of people and selfie sticks is that it not only forces you to get creative with composition, but it gives you the opportunity to see some beautiful architecture that would otherwise be overlooked. 
This was the entrance to the 16th Century Sponza Palace. Nowadays it it used to house important state documents, some dating back to 1022.

Bougainvilleas are back baby! Just when you thought you escaped from them in Greece here they are in Croatia! I personally wish they were everywhere. 
This quick snap is of the Ploce Gate, one of the main gates into the walled city of Old Town Dubrovnik.

Walking the walls of Dubrovnik gave some incredible views of the old town and the beautiful Mediterranean that borders the city. The photo just does not do this view justice! You will just have to go there and experience it yourself. 
In this photo you can see Fort Lovrijenac or St. Lawrence Fortress. It was first built in the 11th century in an incredible 3 months before the Venetians arrived to build a fort for themselves. When they arrived with their building supplies, they were kindly asked to leave. If the Venetians had been successful in the race to build the fort and ultimately have control over the city, who knows what Dubrovnik would be like today.

There’s no mistaking this view of terracotta roof tiles, we’re in Dubrovnik! 
A beautiful walled city where it’s an off day if you don’t overhear someone say ‘where are my dragons?’
Old Town Dubrovnik is surrounded by fortified walls built between the 12th-17th century, with peak construction in the 15th and 16th centuries. The walls are so well built that they withstood the 1667 earthquake which killed 5000 people and flattened the city.

Just a pretty little riverside town. This was on the ferry crossing over Kotor Bay on our way through Montenegro.

Meteora, Greece. When the main monasteries were constructed, the monks of the area fled there because of the rising invasion from the Turks. How did they survive up there? Well, goods and produce and also people were winched up the 300 meter sheer cliff in what is called a windlass. Basically a rope basket. Sounds terrifying, but not as terrifying as knowing that they only ever replaced the ropes when ‘the Lord let them break’. #Greece #Meteora #Monasteries #DontLookDown #Solitude #Amazing #Unfathomable #Winched #Monks #WhyWouldntTheyBuildASecretInnerStairwell

Today we look at one of my top bucket list places - Meteora Monastery in Greece. 
A group of hermit monks in the 9th Century moved up into the cracks of these natural pillars to seek a life of solitude and reflection, only meeting on Sundays and special religious days. The monasteries we see today were built by the 14th century. Those days to get to the top you needed to brave the rope ladders and windlass’. These days we can access the monasteries via steps that were carved into the rock in the 1920’s. There are six remaining of the original 24 monasteries.

So I heard that the Sunsets in Santorini are out of this world. The sunset Gods knew I was in town and they heard my prayers. I was there for one night only and it was THE BEST Sunset I have seen to date - and I have seen a lot of sunsets. 
You think this is a good photo of a sunset? Make sure you check out tomorrow’s photo for what happened next.

A simple photo of the Anastasi Church with accompanying bell tower. This one has no Bougainvilleas (shock), but I think it’s a beautiful, simple image of a beautiful, simple church.

A bonus photo of the Anastasi Church but a slightly different angle and honestly I love them both. This photo is of the top of the beautiful Anastasi Church in Santorini, and it’s not hard to see why it’s gained a following with those perfectly placed Bougainvilleas (they knew what they were doing 50years ago when they planted that tree!) #Greece #Santorini #Bougainvillea #Pretty #WhiteAndBright #Cliche #AnastasiChurch #picturesque #VibranceOverload #OwMyEyes

I seemed to have replaced Mykonos doors with the Santorini steps. But since the steps of Santorini are as iconic as the doors of Mykonos, I’ll allow it.

The winding steps and alleyways of Santorini were irresistible to me. I know I promised no more doors, but this one is white so does it really count?

A Hop, Skip and a very long ferry ride away is Santorini! Goodbye coloured doors, Hello coloured church domes. 
This beautiful church unfortunately cannot be named, as honestly I have no idea where it was. Long story short is that I was riding on the back of our quad not paying attention to where we were going but instead watching my NRL team play (and win) a finals game on my phone (I’ll include this in a behind the scenes post). It was half time when we pulled into this lookout and by the time I had taken this photo, half time was over and no time to mark the location! Just because I’m on the other side of the world doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy my footy right?! #Greece #Santorini Church #Beautiful #WhiteAndBright #Cliche #picturesque #NoMoreDoors #NRLFinalsWaitForNoOne #NRL #CronullaSharks #NRLFinals

Boni’s Windmill. It was bonny alright. A beautiful view with little bits and pieces of left over machinery to explore. I shared this space with another photographer who was a bit too keen at getting ‘the shot’ and actually fell into the cactus pit. Not going to lie, I laughed. Of course I asked him if he was ok and helped him. He was fine and managed to avoid being pricked, just got super dirty and I laughed again as he emerged, because he was wearing white pants.

Another day, another Mykonos scene. Fun fact about this photo: it seems like a secluded street, in fact it was bustling with guided tours from cruise ships and general touristy crowds. I waited more than 15 minutes for people to pass by and get out of the shot longe enough before I managed to get this photo. I had one chance to take this shot and just as the stragglers of a tour group walked around the corner, I snapped this quick one as there were people literally walking past me from another tour group with milliseconds to spare.

If you didn’t pick it by the photo, we’re still in Mykonos. I cannot promise you this is the last door, but I CAN promise you, this is the only photo I have of a door with doggos.

Bring on the door photos. The classic shots. No matter how ‘alternative’ you want to be, these photos are irresistible and those doors are begging you to take their photo. I even had one scream at me to take its photo (jokes). My inner gardener was furious that I lived in an apartment and immediately started planning my future house covered in a bougainvillea rainbow.

We’re finally here, the land of sun, Bougainvilleas, wind, colourful doors, Gyros and more sun. Yes, we are in Mykonos!! If i was going to get some good cliche photos, I knew Mykonos would deliver. And boy did it deliver. Let’s start of with the iconic windmills. A simple snap, but encapsulates the moment (which was ‘did I pack my sunscreen?’) Built by the Venetians in the 16th century using the strong northerly winds to their advantage, they were primarily used to mill wheat, only ceasing production in the middle of the 20th century.

Had to go the alternative angle route to avoid all the selfie sticks and people’s heads at the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence, Italy. It translates to Saint Mary of the Flower. The tile work on this cathedral and adjoining baptistery and tower was absolutely beautiful. The tiles are made of different shades of pink, green and white marble. Construction started in 1296 and structurally  completed in 1436 however it wasn’t until 1887 that it was completed to how we see it today.

Auf Wiedersehen Switzerland - Ciao Venice! We made our way down to Venice to warm up after our way too short of a stay in Lauterbrunnen. 
Couldn’t pass up this iconic shot of Santa Maria della Salute from the Ponte dell’Accademia.

Ok let’s get off this mountain and back into the Lauterbrunnen village. So pretty, So picturesque, so Swiss. 
This absolute beauty of a village comes with its own waterfall named Staubbach, which sprays the town with a gentle mist. Albeit a cloudy day, it doesn’t take away the beauty of this village.

The glacier Ischmeer (translates to Ice Sea) is the view from Eismeer train station on the Jungfrau railway line up to the Top of Europe. Can’t think of a train station with a better view. Maybe Circular Quay in Sydney would come in at a close second (honestly I haven’t been to a lot of train stations haha), but Eismeer station definitely takes the cake so far!

We are making our way up into the clouds to reach the Top of Europe - Jungfrau! On the way we find some of those famous Swiss cows! A true “how’s the serenity” moment watching the clouds go by and the distant tune of the cowbells as the cows move through the mountains. The hills really ARE alive with the sound of music - cowbell music.

Last day in SanSebastian, so let’s have squiz at Santa Clara Island, this photo is of the uninhabited lighthouse. 
It is a popular spot in summer with a beach appearing at low tide. During the 16th century, residents of San Sebastián who had contracted the plague were transferred to the island to prevent the spread of infection. -

It is the largest reflecting pool in the world! - - - - - #France #Bordeaux #WaterMirror #ReflectingPool #Miroir d'eau #Francefr #UnAirdeBordeaux #VisitBordeaux #CarringtonGoesToEurope #carringtonphotographics #EuropeanAdventure #SoManyTourists #IWasOneOfTheTourists #SnapHappy #topdecker #LandscapePhotography #wonderful_places #planetfervor #earth_shotz #NatGeoYourShot #LP @earthpix @canonaustralia @natgeo - 2 months ago

Tuileries Gardens, Paris, France - Walking around the beauty that is Paris, the Tuileries was a garden originally designed by Catherine d’Medici as private garden in 1564. As time went on, other monarchs developed the gardens to their tastes. After the French Revolution, the gardens became a public space where the Parisians went to relax, take a stroll and enjoy the greenery. As the years have gone by many things have been added to the park like the beautiful sculptures we see today. 
I absolutely love the Parisian way; people watching and relaxing by the water - and that they can just leave chairs in the park knowing that they will still be there in the morning. In Sydney if word got out that chairs weren’t chained down they would last two hours tops! 
Next Stop - Bordeaux!!! -

Palais Garnier, Paris, France - I couldn’t go to Paris and not visit the Phantom. We got in and surprise surprise, the place was PACKED full of people. I couldn’t get a photo from any angle that didn’t include people or selfie sticks. The grand staircase was indeed super grand, but the best surprise was the grand foyer which I had no idea existed, and it was so full on it made my eyes hurt. It was beautiful in all its baroque glory and I want one.
Designed by Charles Garnier, construction started in 1861 and was completed in 1875. 
Disaster struck in 1896, when one of the chandelier's counterweights broke free and burst through the ceiling into the auditorium, killing a patron. It is said that this incident inspired Gaston Leroux’s novel, the Phantom of the Opera. -

Arc de Triomphe, Paris, France - Yep we are still in Paris! An amazing architectural masterpiece and is actually pretty huge. Smack bang in the middle of the busiest,craziest round-about ever created, the Arc de Triomphe was built to honour those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. It was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806, and he had hoped to pass under the arch on the way home marking his victories. This however did not happen, as when he returned in 1810, construction was still incomplete (he had the arch temporarily completed in wood so he could pass under that instead). When Napoleon died, his remains were passed through the arch on the way to his burial tomb in 1840. -

Sainte Chapelle, Paris, France - I can without out a doubt in my mind, say that I will never ever step into a more beautifully breathtaking church - until the day comes when I step into this church again. Holy Moley I cannot put into words how remarkable, beautiful, awe inspiring this church was. 
Finishing construction in 1248, this magnificent gothic chapel was commissioned by King Louie IX to house his collection of holy artefacts, including the Crown of Thorns. The stained glass windows are the finest examples of intricate stained glass in the world, and depict stories from the bible in chronological order. The chapel has gone extensive restorations over the years including after the French Revolution and even a protective varnish layer added to all the windows to protect them from scratches caused by dust and debris from WWII bombings. The latest restorative works finished in 2015, just in time for King Louis IX’s 800 year anniversary of his birth. 
If you are ever in Paris, you must see this chapel. You may not be a fan of religious beliefs, but you just cannot deny the craftsmanship and the architectural masterpiece that is this chapel. -

*sigh* The Louvre. A place that conjures up art historians and/or claustrophobia in our minds. 
I unfortunately did not get to go inside and experience the claustrophobia first hand, but as the saying goes - I’ll be back (I hope you read that in my best Arnie impersonation).
A little bit on the Louvre - 
Originally Louvre castle, it was built as a fortress, and over time came to look how it does today from French kings constantly expanding the palace. In 1682 King Louis XIV decided that the Louvre palace just wasn’t doing it for him anymore and was a little on the small side. He decided to make Versailles his permanent residency and therefore decided the Louvre will serve as a place to display the royal collection. After the revolution it was decided that the Louvre would be turned into a museum to hold the nations’ masterpieces. Currently, there are 380,000 objects housed in the museum, but only 35,000 on display. If you were to look at all 380,000 objects non stop for 60 seconds each, it would take you 9 months!

Next stop is Paris! Paris was amazing and lived up to all the hype. Here’s a photo of the Eiffel Tower I took from a river cruise. An amazingly unoriginal and cliche photo, but it was beautiful, and seeing the Eiffel Tower was when I truly realised that I really was on a dream adventure. Also here is a video of the sparkle 😍
Built by Gustav Eiffel’s company and completed in 1889 (after Barcelona rejected the design - sucks to be them), it was built as the entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair. It wasn’t meant to be a permanent structure, and the tower was to be demolished after its 20 year permit had expired. The Parisians hated the tower, they even started a partition to tear it down for scrap before it was due. It wasn’t until after it became a useful building when an antenna was built on top that the Parisians decided they liked it, and because of that it still stands today igniting romance in all of our hearts 💕

Join me in reliving my epic travels of 2018! First stop on our adventure is the Chateau de Chambord in the land of wine and cheese (aka France). It was absolutely magnificent. 
Built as a humble hunting lodge for Francis I, it started construction in 1519 and completed in 1547. Rumour has it that Leonardo da Vinci had a hand in the design of this lodge too. The roofscape of this building is incredible in itself having being modelled to look like the Constantinople city skyline. During the French Revolution it was stripped of furniture and finishings to be sold and today remains largely bare except for a few replica rooms that have been set up to see what life was like in this humble hunting lodge. -
