In my travels around Europe, I am often attracted to unusual things, details that sometimes mean so much to me, but other people just walk on by and ignore them. Last year I was visiting Genoa, a beautiful Italian city with rich history. From all the photos I took, my favorite by far is this one, the name of the street in the center of the city. I was born on the 20th of September, so when I stumbled upon this street, I felt like I somehow belonged there and as silly as it sounds, this place will forever occupy a special corner of my heart.
For, there is no greater love affair than the one you have with yourself.
