Alex Garcia, an editorial photographer’s top 10 photos from his European vacation.

I hope you enjoy, these are some of my favorite photos while in Europe. We planned the trip for about a year, booked things such as the flights and lodging as much as 6 months (February) out and had everything booked and ready to go before we left (August). My wife and I started in Copenhagen, to Switzerland, Munich Germany, then Italy for 10 day, and ended in Paris for 3 days. While I didn’t get much editorial, or any work in, I managed to get some Great landscapes and worked on my selfie photography. All our planning and late nights paid off when we walked passed the hour or two long lines and straight for the entrances. Our longest wait time in line was only about 15 minutes, like I said, everything was planned. Rick Steve’s books, videos, audio guides and maps saved us so much time with the hints and tips, I don’t know how we would have managed our time without them. We kept under budget by shopping at the local markets and making the most amazing picnics while using the freshest fruit we’ve ever tasted. Tomatoes were vibrant red, greens were all greener, organic wasn’t a word they used, everything has always been organic. We did eat out, usually for dinner, in Rome we packed a lunch every morning, ate out for dinner and had the best Italian dinner for about 6 euros each.  Our Airbnb host showed us where to (and not to) go for dinner, he also showed us the market that was literally outside our door step, it had a bakery, flower, and coffee shops, fruit, vegetable, meat, cheese and seafood stands. We could get used to eating fresh food every day, it was like a supermarket right outside our door steps! In Paris our Airbnb host was a chef, so we had a 6 course meal complete with 2 wines and home made liquor that his grandmother made, it’s safe to say it was one of the best meals I’ve had.

We can’t wait to go back! Germany was one stop that took us by surprise. We fell in love with how amazing everything was, the efficient trains, buses, the cleanliness of the whole place and how nice everyone was to us. We plan to crash Oktoberfest one day very soon!!
