Well, friends, I have decided to start a blog series. I feel like an official blogger now, because I am committing myself to an on-going project; an on-going project with the goal of inspiring and getting to know other bloggers a little bit better.
This series will not be posted once a week, or any specific time at all, really. The idea is, you email me when you feel the urge to do so, and tell me about (one of) your favorite places. Include 1-3 pictures, and write 1-2 paragraphs about what makes this place so wonderful.
You don’t have to say Paris or the top of Mount Kilimanjaro (but you sure can). In fact, the place you chose just has to be somewhere, anywhere, you have been that you love. This includes your favorite cashmere sweater, your favorite college class, the front seat of your car when you had the best idea ever, or the place you fell in love.
I’ll start today, with a place I know will make this girl shed a tear or two. And, in accordance with my own rules, I really cannot say this is my absolute favorite place in all the world, but it certainly holds a special place in my heart: Salzburg, Austria.
It may not surprise you one bit that the aforementioned girl was my tourguide to this city back in 2009. She did a really good job at refraining from telling me she would not be my friend anymore if I did not say this was my favorite European city. But, much to her pleasant surprise, I fell in love with the beauty of this historic place without any outside prompting. So many little cafes (including ones where Mozart and Christopher Columbus hung out), so many colors, delicious food, history (did you catch the Mozart/Columbus thing? Let me also include WWII), and outdoor markets.
I left a tiny little piece of my heart there, to insure I would return one day.
And now, I would love to know: what is your favorite place?
