The first rule of travel is to find all your happiness and adventure wherever you happen to be — Pico Iyer 

Hello, Tuesday. I’ve got so many phone calls to make, but nothing I can’t handle. 🙂 I came across this wonderful quote from the writer of one of my favorite travel essays, and I felt like digging up photos from last year’s trip.

Spent only two days in Amsterdam, but made the most out of it! Such a colorful city, and everyone is just happy. Haha. I vow to return someday, like I always do.

Invader Spotting!

I need to sort through 4000 photos from my month-long trip (plus edit photos from my sister’s wedding) on top of work and just getting back into the daily grind. I have a lot of stories to share (and photos, of course!), but first–the Invader sightings!

My first encounter with Invader was in Exit Through the Gift Shop (which you should see, by the way). Stuck in traffic on our way to Taksim Square from the airport, I saw a small burst of color against the stone walls. I was too excited I forgot to zoom in:

I didn’t see any in Amsterdam, but in Paris, while making our way to the Notre Dame from the metro, I saw another one:

Another one in Paris:

In Blois, France:

Gotic Quarter, Barcelona:

When in Rome:

And the biggest one at the Vatican:

Lucky! I guess it wasn’t that hard because according to Wiki he puts these up in places where there are lots of people. It felt like a treasure hunt!
More on the trip soon 🙂
