It has been a while…So to kick off an amazing summer we as a family took a little trip to Italy to see my baby sis; who just left London with her husband to embark on an epic European Adventure before returning home to Oz.

Splendour and Rouge

If you have the travel bug but haven’t had the time to get away, I have a great place for visual stories from europe and the world over.

Fellow magazine addict, Sarah of Splendour and Rouge has a passion for all things creative and is inspired by traveling. These views below are just breathtaking, so I had to share them.
