Day 21: Something Pretty

IMG_1705

This picture is something pretty to me because of the peace it conveys. It was taken early in the morning when everything seems quiet and peaceful, and I think it really shows in the photo. It’s nice to be able to have those moments of peace when our daily lives are complex and always busy.

This photo is also pretty to me since I love being near the water, especially near harbours with nice boats. It was one of those unique opportunities to catch a lot of the sailboats before they were out and about, which was awesome.

Plus, Nova Scotia is just pretty in general. This was taken in Lunenburg, while my family and I were waiting to take a trip on the Bluenose II. The small community feeling and connection to traditional industries and nature embodies some of the things I’ve really appreciated while living out here. It’s definitely a corner of Canada that is special to me, and I’ll always take a bit of it with me wherever I go.

What’s something pretty you’ve seen recently? Drop me a comment, and I love to see pictures too!

Day 20: Your Favourite Place

One of my¬†favourite places that isn’t in Canada is London. I’ve been lucky enough to travel there twice already, and every time I fall a bit more in love with the city. It’s one of those places that always has something new for you to discover, and it’s an interesting mix of old and new.

So, I thought I’d share some of my pictures from my trip(s) to London today, including some of my favourite parts of the city, in order to show off my favourite place.

The British Museum. I love the ceiling and could spend days in here.

Let me know what your favourite places are in the comments, and if you’ve been to London, let me know what your favourite thing you saw there was!
