What do you suppose it is about Europe, exactly, that is so compelling for so many of us?


  1. Love the photo of the woman with the candles in Florence. I think Europe's greatest features are the sidewalk cafes and pedestrian only areas.

  2. I think we're lucky in Europe to have such a richness of culture and history that brings a beauty to the everyday environment. Nevertheless I do find myself longing sometimes for a white sand beach with palm trees swaying in the beach

  3. Wow, stunning photos, Monna! The light in the Krakow photo is really something.I've never been to Europe, but I really want to go. Its beauty and history intrigue me…and then of course, there is all the food! In the end, it's all about the food 🙂

  4. @kerry dexterFlorence, Vienna and Nice are good choices. Thanks for stopping by.@Dim Sum, Bagels, and CrawfishI'm glad that you enjoyed the photo essay.@Amy @ The Q Family I am also a wild fan of the way that many Europeans love the small pleasures of life. The good news is that it is contagious.@Kymri Thanks for your comment. Sidewalk cafes are the best thing since sliced bread.@CJThat's three votes for Florence.@Heather on her TravelsThe great news for you, of course, is that white sand and palm trees are just a quick flight away… in our beloved Spain.@RosiecatI do hope you have the opportunity to visit Europe some day. There is so much amazing food… for me, the best food is found in Italy, France and Spain.@SharleneThanks for your comment. That's the fourth vote for Florence… a winner!
