Everybody who knows me knows I love Italy. Well why not? Everybody loves Italy and for good reason. This country is world renowned for being the place to be for romantic getaways, history adventures, art lovers, fashionistas, adrenalin junkies and so many more. We all have our thing and for me Italy has it in a big way! Italy apparently has more UNESCO world heritage sites than any other country. The iconic structures and great works of art in this country are almost on every street corner. There are random little churches in obscure little towns in Italy that in most other countries would be national treasures. Italy is so full of jaw dropping sights, one might get a slight case of shell-shock. It is almost like a bonbon, the flavour is so potent and at first its amazing but it can overwhelm you quickly. Luckily Italy has such a variety of flavours that your palette won't get over saturated very quickly. You can go from gorgeous medieval hill-top towns to stunning beaches and then into high alpine mountains before finishing up with some Roman or Greek ruins all while enjoy the latest fashion trends. It is no wonder I seem to keep going back. The country that made me decide to get into photography keeps me coming back for more time and time again.

What a year! 2017 started off slow but picked up fast and by the end I had checked off a few of the most incredible places on our planet. Starting off on one of three trips to Barcelona, I had the privilege to experience Spain's famous Easter Week, Semana Santa, as I traveled through the Southern region of Andalusia. After that I went back to Amsterdam for a short time as I was headed to Dubrovnik, Croatia for the first time. May came faster than I was expecting and I spent the early summer with friends and family in Washington D.C. and Seattle. Then I was on my way back to Mexico. This year I started off in my favourite City, Guadalajara, and then went to Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende. Then a short trip to Puebla before finishing off in Mexico City. August came and I took some time to gear up for the big finale as I left for New Zealand in October. I have been wanting to see Milford Sound for many years and it did not disappoint! Just as I had thought things would quiet down I had one last little trip to Naples, Italy to take care of. No year is really complete without a trip to Italy. In all it was a great year and I am so happy to have been able to do what I did, and go where I went, and as always, the best is to be able to share with my friends and family. I have high hopes and big plans for 2018 and I wish everybody a happy and exciting New Year! Love to all!
