It was early morning when we captured this photo of Ponte Vecchio in Florence.Thia shot is taken from the side of the bridge that most people don't venture towards.
We returned on a walking tour today which gave us a refresher on the history behind the passage over the bridge and the rule of the Medici family. And, we discovered a few new places in the city we had never seen before. It's never ceases to amaze us how often we can return to a city we've been to before and find places we have never seen!

Our little find today was the sleepy and laid back town of Tellaro on the Ligurian coast of Italy. Colourful houses perched on the cliffs overlooking the picturesque Gulf of Poets. You'll find no foreign tourists or souvenir shops here. However, the town is full of little alleyways to explore. Not to mention the views.
It is ranked by Italians as one of the prettiest villages in Italy. The village and panoramic vista provided inspiration for many poets and writers including Shelley, Byron and D H Lawrence who all lived here for a time.
Today's shot is of the famous fountain in Piazza De Ferrari in Genoa, Italy.
A few years ago we stayed in Genoa. It didn't hold a great deal of attraction for us at the time of planning our stay, being more of a stopover for a couple of days on the way to the more popular Cinque Terre. Instead, we found the historic buildings and the maze of alleyways in the old town where we stayed captivating. We stopped in the city for a couple of hours today. It is still a little rough and gritty around the edges but has a wonderful charm about it. Not to mention the exquisite architecture. We have agreed it deserves a longer stay. We'll be back.

With views of the stunning Swiss Alps as we drove, we passed through beautiful Swiss towns surrounded by green pastures and hills to Lucerne. Nestled between the mountains by Lake Lucerne, the city has a serene and relaxed feel about it. Chapel Bridge dating back to the 14th century is one of the main attractions. However, it's delightful to walk in the historic centre with its cobblestone streets and squares with painted houses. And, a walk along the tree-lined promenade around the pretty lakeside is definitely a must.
Dr Lee Lenton has considerable expertise in vision correction, having performed over 15,000 LASIK procedures during his career. Book a consultation with Dr Lenton to see how he can help you – link in bio.

One of the things we love about our self-driving holidays is having the choice to go wherever we want, whenever we want. Because we could, we slipped back into France from Germany for a short time to stroll around Strasbourg and drive through French countryside. France has some of the prettiest villages in Europe. We drove through many in Alsace region today.
Our find of the day was the captivating town of Colmar, a medieval town with small canals andhalf timbered houses. Simply beautiful!
There’s something so peaceful and reflective looking out the window of a plane. You realize how small you are, and how big the world and universe is. #deepthoughts
I’ve begun reminiscing about San Francisco. I still believe it’s a romantic city. It’s all about where you go and what you do. There are beautiful sights everywhere. @Rocio_Huesca and I went for the Cherry Blossom Festival this past April. We stayed in the Financial District and absolutely loved the hotel we stayed in! It was so lovely! We walked everywhere. Like seriously walked so much. We saw so much. Experienced so much. Ate so much yummy foods. It was a beautiful trip. I want to go back again next spring! There is still more that I haven’t seen!
Tucked away behind a busy shopping street near the Dam in Amsterdam's city centre is this tranquil courtyard surrounded by beautiful homes and gardens, the Begynhof. Dating back the the 17th and 18th century, the houses were fomerly home to the Begijnen, a group of single Catholic women who wanted to perform good deeds without taking vows or living in a convent. The homes are stil inhabited only by women. The last Begijnen passed away in 1971.

In a healthy eye, the clear crystalline lens focuses light onto the retina at the back of the eye to form a clear image. With age, the lens becomes more cloudy, preventing light from passing through, causing hazy vision, much like looking out of a foggy window.
A cataract occurs when the natural clear crystalline lens of your eye becomes cloudy or opaque. It is a natural part of the aging process and is a common cause of gradual deterioration in our eyesight as we get older. In some cases, such as in diabetes or in eye trauma, cataracts can also affect younger people.

The turrets and walls of the 12th century Gravensteen Castle.
We spent the greater part of today exploring the fascinating university town of Ghent. The town is a little underrated and not as popular as the more sophisticated Bruges.
We found it to have a more relaxed and almost alternative atmosphere about it. The Ghentse Feesten, a 10 day music and theatre festival, was in full swing when we arrived with multiple stages set up around the historic town centre.
We would definitely recommend spending some time here. We'll be coming back again to stay. Where else would you find a castle sitting in the centre of town these days?
We have literally lost ourselves in Bruges! The centre of the medieval town is easy to navigate however. Beautiful squares, the famous belfry, cobblestone streets and canals are some of the highlights. This photo was taken in the centre of the UNESCO protected historic town where we stayed. We ventured out further to the canals and waterways to explore a little more. It was worth the effort on the day on which Bruges is experiencing their hottest day (40°C) in 50 years.
