Travel Diaries : SWEDEN + COPENHAGEN

In April, I was fortunate enough to travel to Gothenburg, Sweden and Copenhagen, Denmark with one of my best friends! It was an amazing week of exploring local neighbourhoods, being by the water (you know this Newfoundlander can't stay away for long), and experiencing the local culture.

Usually when I travel, they are definitely TRIPS- a constant go to pack in as many things as I can muster. This time, me and my friend Maggie took it slow like an actual vacation for once, haha! Who else is the kind of traveller like me where you need a vacation from your vacation?

Looking at these photographs takes me back to the cobblestone walkways, vibrant houses, music in the streets, and the bustling yet peaceful vibe of the cities that surrounded us. It wasn't all a perfectly executed experience though, keep scrolling for a few funny stories that only I could get myself into!

I hope you enjoy this look into our adventures and the life that pulses through these cities. Until next time, Sweden and Copenhagen. XOX

And that's the end of this travel story! Thank you so much as always for sharing in this experience with me and reading along. Have a beautiful day and I can't wait to keep sharing weddings & love stories with you here all summer!

Travel Diaries : SCOTLAND

TRAVEL DIARIES INSTALMENT II : SCOTLAND

Let me begin this by saying I am SUCH a die-hard Newfoundland girl, and in me is a very strong passion for our island that not many places even come close to rivalling. However, If there's one place that's felt like home away from home, it was Scotland.

I was surprised to be hit with this deep feeling of home once we arrived at our flat in Edinburgh, and now almost a year later I still feel so moved by our experience when I look back on my photographs.

Every time I go through the memories you're about to see, I reminisce on a place where a big piece of my heart still remains. I can still feel the historic charm and warm culture of Edinburgh, the enamouring beauty of Glen Coe and the Scottish highlands, the whipping wind that greeted us at every loch.

It means I can close my eyes and be transported back to the time where my soul felt its most ablaze with passion for our world and the magic it holds, and I can’t wait for the day I can once again face into Glen Coe with the wind at my back.  

I think about Scotland constantly, and am so lucky that I have these photographs to remind me of the best week of my life. I hope you enjoy this little look into it.

Me and my girls standing at the most breathtaking place I've ever seen. Experiencing Scotland with them was the trip of a lifetime and one I hope I remember forever.

Off on another adventure this Friday to Sweden and can't wait to explore somewhere new. Stay tuned for that travel diary in the coming weeks, and keep your eyes to my Instagram @maddiemillsphoto for live updates!

As always, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading, sharing, and supporting my passions. Love you all so much!
