Our last trip to Europe was five weeks long, spanning September and October 2011. Before we embark on our 2015 return visit, I’ve delved into the archives for photographs from four years ago. There were a lot of special moments, and the ones I remember most fondly were almost always a result of getting lost, or at least getting off the tourist highway.
Here are some of the images that remind me of those experiences. They range from southern France to Barcelona, from northern Italy through Tuscany to Rome.
