Markets & Stores

Markets are my favourite places to experience a new (or familiar) city, of learning about the food and culture, to immerse myself in it all. I also love to seek out great little shops, and bookshops in particular, where I can pick up some unique trinkets to either remember my travels or to inspire me to live a full and happy and exciting life. Here are the places I love 🙂
