The thing about road trips

The trees have lost their blossom and I can see little pink dots on the pavement. It’s jasmine’s time to spread its perfume, along with the rain and the grass.

I was trying to remember if I had seen spring in the countries that we visited a few weeks ago. If we did see it, it was nothing like here, otherwise it would have stuck to my mind. We saw the coldness of Denmark, the speed of the German highways, the heat of Eastern Europe and the beauty of Czech Republic’s capital.

“Life is a journey, not a destination.”

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Between looking for gas stations, places to sleep, places to pull over, places to eat, getting lost because of a faulty GPS, being stranded in the middle of a highway with little gas to go and speeding like at the races to catch the ferry back to the mainland, I’d say that we fared well. The result were 300 photos and two scratches taken by the car in the attempt to pull out of a parking space. I drove in most of the countries we crossed, except Denmark and Sweden. And I think I did well, considering the pregnancy and the not-so-fit jeans.

Of all the places we’ve seen, we really liked Prague, even though we visited it for only 1 hour. I liked Budapest too, while Copenhagen and Malmo close the pack. I wish we had more time though… at times, I felt we were rushing to get somewhere, to get back or to go forward.

On a more local note, I am planning a photoshoot with my husband. Of course, what I plan doesn’t usually happen the way I want it to, so we shall have to wait and see how it goes.

Until the jasmine’s perfume wears out, see you next time!

  1. Lovely photos :) I loved Prague, too bad you only spent an hour there – I hope you will be able to go back with more time someday.
    & Congratulations on your pregnancy!

Have your say!
