For us, the beauty of traveling is not that much about going to all the cool spots, must sees or touristic sceneries - we feel most alive when we can explore and soak up the moment fully. When we go to a new place, nothing excites us more than just to be there and blend into local life. Yes, we'll always try to find that perfect spot overlooking the sea (and dive in:), cute coffee place or where to soak up the dreamiest sunsets. And with a camera in hand (usually just our iPhone and analog cameras!) we're there to capture the moment and share our best tips with you.
So we thought it would be sweet to take you on a little visual vacation through the lens of our 35mm camera, to all the amazing European destinations we were lucky to visit over the last years. Sometimes for work (mainly photoshoots that we produced for brands) and sometimes for a real vacation.
PS. What's your favorite European travel destination? We'd love to hear!

If we're picturing the perfect European Summer, for us that's only one place in the world: Biarritz. Pris spends every Summer here with le fiancé Arnaud, who grew up in this stylish French surfer town and founded Biarritz's first Acai Bowl cafe: Bali Bowls (with now more than 4 locations in France, só proud). Biarritz is not only the go-to destination for European surfing and beach vacations but also home to the cutest cafes, boutiques, vintage markets and picturesque streets.
If you're planning to go, check our 50 x Biarritz tips: from the best coffee, acai bowls, where to book your surf lessons to where to sleep.
