Ah...Italy: the food, the beaches, the weather, the 'crumbling chic' architecture....no matter what region we visit, it never disappoints. And our time in Sardinia this summer was no exception to that rule. Below are some of our favorite photos from the small town of Bosa, on the western coast of the island of Sardinia.
This summer we spent a day floating down France's Dordogne River. Though we were technically 'canoeing,' we definitely let the river do the work. And as we melted down stream in the Dordogne's generous current, we couldn't help but agree with the River Rat's timeless credo:
'Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing — absolutely nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.' Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
'Home is the sailor, home from the sea, and the hunter home from the hill.'' Robert Louis Stevenson
It has been a busy summer of travel, but we are home and excited to share photos from our journeys with you. In the coming weeks we will post photos from our time in Poland, Sardinia (Italy), the Bordeaux Region and Paris, France as well as Holland and Croatia. But in the meantime, here is a little preview of things to come, with much more on the near horizon.
We hope you will continue to travel the way with us this fall.

Hello and thanks for visiting Wayfarer's All!
We're logging off for a few weeks as we go out wayfaring this summer. Lots of photos and exciting news to follow. But while we're away, you can follow us Instagram.
More snapshots from our weekend on the Island of Hven last month. This time around, all the photos are from the iPhone 5. But still, wow, oh how we love Hven!
After two years living in Scandinavia, we have finally set out upon a quest to see more of the islands and countryside in Denmark and Sweden. Our first stop on this adventure - the tiny island of Hven, Sweden. With a year round population of around 300 people, this place is the essence of quaint. And, as you will see below, our new favorite day trip from Copenhagen. In the sun, this place is breathtaking.
The weather is still a mixed bag, but the days have stretched out long again and the winds have calmed; and a whole new spirit has settled in upon the Danish capital - a wide-open, ever smiling, ice cream infused spirit. The spirit of the first days of summer.
After a long, dark winter, Spring has arrived in Denmark. And we couldn't be more grateful. So, here are a few shots from around the neighborhood - a photographic celebration of this warming season and the (hopefully) even warmer summer to come.
The Church of the Sagrada Familia is a wonder to behold - simple as that. It is at the same time sacred architecture, modern art sculpture, act of worship, national symbol, expressionist experiment....and on and on the adjectives flow. All fitting. All falling short. Perhaps Antonio Gaudi's church is best described by the builder himself:
'The creation continues incessantly through the media of man.' Antonio Gaudi
Amen. Now go visit it for yourself.
Barcelona is a feast for the eyes, the imagination, and the taste buds. Here are some of our favorite finds from the capital of Catalonia. Special thanks to Marta Greber for all of her impeccable cafe / bar / restaurant suggestions.
How do you photograph a place like Antoni Gaudí s magical Park Güell? How do you capture the Dr. Seuss-like whimsy, the impossible intricacy - the romantic sense of place? Maybe you can't. Or, maybe by zooming in on the details of the place we can interpolate just a bit of the genius behind such a strange, magical creation. If only we could have had it to ourselves.
