Six Years of Easter in different cities around the world

Its Good Friday and I’m currently in Moscow, Russia, reflecting on where I’ve spent the last six Easters… it’s always been a good excuse to check out another city for the traveller in me! Downside is that many of these places don’t understand the importance of chocolate Easter Eggs and Hot Cross Buns!

Easter 2008: Florence, Italy

I’d been travelling through Prague and Venice leading up to Florence while studying in Austria as part of my University scholarship exchange.

Easter 2009: Auckland, New Zealand

Back in the land of the long white cloud I was saving up for my OE (Overseas Experience).

Easter 2010: London, UK

After a bit of a scary journey through Thailand getting sick and ending up in hospital, then a short stop in chilly Sweden to visit one of my best friends, I then landed in London. Below is one of my first photographs that I took once I’d settled in London.

Easter 2011: Cinque Terre and the Amalfi Coast, Italy

Kicking off an amazing Easter I ventured through the five little villages of Cinque Terre in Italy, hiking between each village admiring the incredible views.

Finishing up Easter of 2011 on the stunning coast of Amalfi, in particular the lovely Positano.

Easter 2012: Istanbul, Turkey

After trekking and hot air ballooning through the stunning Cappadocia, Easter 2012 ended in Istanbul. It was a city similar to London, it had parts which I loved and aspects that drove me crazy.

I may not have had Easter Eggs, but this cake and Icecream were a pretty good substitute

Easter 2013: Cornwall, England

Deciding it was time to check out more of the UK, I ventured to one of the coasts that English people rave about: Cornwall. It was nice, but it was freaking cold. So cold. However, the Eden Project meant a warm rainforest!

Easter 2014: Russia

Well you’ll just have to wait for that one! Hold tight photographs and posts will be on the way!
