Newport is a beautiful town on the southern coast of Rhode Island – perfect for a day of wandering around checking out little boutique stores and drinking homemade lemonade! This place – Frazzleberries – sells a wide range of home decorations and is a great place to pick up something new for your place.
Covered bridges have a romantic appeal to me – hard to explain, but the nostalgia and history they evoke somehow draws me in! This one is the Flume Covered Bridge, located on the way up to the Flume Gorge in New Hampshire in Franconia Notch State Park. It was built in the latter half of the 19th century.
After a cloudy afternoon in Boston, I didn’t have much hope for a remarkable sunset. Still, I wanted to check out the harbor area for blue hour, so I got there a little early and wandered around looking for a good spot. A few minutes later, the clouds thinned out – and were lit up by the most beautiful pink, orange and red hues!
The Bo-Kaap area of Cape Town was the first area where freed slaves settled after they were liberated. As a result it was a real melting pot of cultures, predominantly Muslim, and became a center of cultural life of the city. The houses are all very colorful, probably as an expression of freedom and individualism.
While most of Europe has been blanketed in snow this week, Berlin has managed (for once in winter) to stay sunny – but it’s misleading since temperatures have dropped to as low as -13C at night with highs of -5C or -6C during the day! Whenever there are several consecutive days of sub-zero temperatures, chunks of ice collect on the river Spree upstream of the Oberbaumbrücke in Eastern Berlin, as shown here shot earlier today during blue hour.
