Ten Of My Favorite Places And Spots to Photograph Around Europe: My Best Kept Secrets

Here is my recent travel photography from around the world. I have collected some of my favourite places to photograph around Europe over the last few months featuring my own pictures and thoughts. Eat well, travel often!

San Fruttuoso, Liguria, Italy – San Fruttuoso is a hidden paradise on the Ligurian coast with lots of sunshine, deep blue sea, great food and a submerged underwater statue of Jesus Christ called Christ of the Abbys. Perfect diving spot with hardly any phone signal which makes the entire experience even more magical.
Seljavallalaug Swimming Pool, Iceland – This pool was built in 1923 which makes it one of oldest swimming pools in Iceland. How to get there? It is quite a bit of drive. Once you found the car park passing Þorvaldseyri – you need to walk and follow the river and path for about 25 minutes. This pool is in a hidden valley and the road is quite rocky to begin with, but once you get there you will be left in awe.
Topping & Company Booksellers of Bath, United Kingdom – I love bookshops but what I love even more is an antique bookshop. This one I have discovered during our stay in beautiful Bath. I could have spent hours browsing the shelves standing on the ladders.
BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, London, United Kingdom – A slice of India on your doorstep. This place is incredible. I still can’t believe that this beautiful Hindu temple is in London.
Avenue de La Bourdonnais, Paris, France – If you are looking for the best Eiffel Tower close-up photo spot in Paris – this one is for you. There are many great spots to get a good, original shot but this is the one closest to my heart. My best friend lives in Paris and I’m always looking forward to visit her whilst having our beloved pain au chocolat & trip to Maje.
Portofino, Italy – The real postcard location. This little fishing village on the Italian Riviera coastline is famous from its pastel-colored houses, ice cream and high-end boutiques.
Dyrhólaey, Iceland – This humongous arch that the sea has eroded from the headland is close to the small village of Vík. We have visited this place during the biggest storm I have ever seen which made it look even more dramatic, wet and windy. I can’t wait to return during spring and summer.
Scottish Highlands – Hands down the best road trip I have ever had with wild ponies, horses and plenty of hikes. Scotland is an incredible country with surreal landscapes and impressive history. The driving and road trip itinerary looked like the following: York – Edinburgh – Inverness – Caingorms National Park – Drumnadrochit – Loch Ness – Isle of Skye – Portree – Dunvegan – The Old Man of Storr – Neist Point Lighthouse – Mealt Falls Waterfall – Glennfinnan Viaduct – Glencoe – Fort William – Loch Lomond – Glasgow.
Sky Garden, London – I love visiting the Sky Garden. Sunset drinks at the top are the best. It’s free and you can see some of the best views of the city.
Bruges, Belgium – What a lovely and surprisingly quiet place for a weekend getaway. During the colder months Bruges is free of tourist masses which can definitely contribute to a slow weekend.
