I would describe the holiday as a quick but enjoyable dash, eating and driving our lil hearts out through both countries. We picked the car up in Geneva late one Friday night with Camera equipment in tow. I was photographing a lovely wedding in Todi, Italy in 7 days time.
Sunshine and crisp cool air filled our hearts and lungs whilst we climbed the Queen of Mountains of Switzerland in record time, camera with me at the ready. At the top we ate chocolate and croissants and rested on the fresh green grass feeling pretty good about ourselves. For 2 very work oriented Aussies living in London, we did alright :) more climbing to come in the future.
Another highlight was when we visited the small seaside village of vernazza on the cinque terre coastline of Italy. Bloody beautiful was the Mediterranean so simple peaceful and lovely/ Im sure we dreamed many times about never returning to our lives in London and staying there forever with the locals fishing off the waters edge every day x
Um, I feel I should confess our mistake for others to benefit from. Gt and I drove all the way down to Vernazza, along the dodgy coastline (me with my fingernails planted firmly in dashboard), without any signs to stop us along the way. the next week, four people were injured driving on those dangerous and overly decayed roads. Thanking our luck stars we got out of Vernazza alive - we realised there was a lesson learnt - that was to use the train next time :) So after escaping near death.. we hit the road again x
I feel so blessed to have visited these 2 amazing countries, Italy for the second time. I kept pinching myself when standing on the waters edge in a small Swiss township at the base of a majestic Swiss Alps Mountain, - early in the morning just before the hum of the day began...feeling so present and so alive. I have selected a few picks below for you to see our adventure. Also keep watch on the blog over the next week for the Wedding Photography of Mike and Kellie's Destination Wedding in Italy.
Shot Gun Road Trip / Geneva Switzerland to Umbria Italy / 14th Sept
It's funny, I always love holidays don't get me wrong, but I always seem to love them even more going back over the photos I take, they makes me smile, so preparing this blog post from the holiday I had with my man Grant in Switzerland and Italy in September was fun.
