This year again, as in 2017 before, I had the chance to visit one of the most picturesque countries in Europe and also my former home – Portugal. Most of the pictures I wanted to share with you from these particular two trips I did so already, you will find them here, here or here. However I did not share them all. There are some shots I didn’t yet put on the website. I combined them into the series below titled “Details of Portugal”.
Capri in the Bay of Naples is also known for being the island of the sun. Because of its natural beauty and the favourable weather conditions already Roman emperors used to come to Capri to spend their summers on the island. But even the most sunny island in the world can have a bad weather day of course and that’s what happened when I visited the place in 2018. You don’t see Capri very often in myst and even in poor weather conditions the island proved to be immensely beautiful.
Third just to Sicily and Sardegna Elba is one of the largest islands belonging to Italy. Historically it was important for its iron production and mining. Today it is a hotspot for tourists, but not as run over as other parts of Italy. Luckily the islanders were able to succesfully maintain the authenticity and quietness of Elba.
