This week, share an image of your happy place, a secret spot you love, or a faraway location you return to again and again.
Do you have a favorite bench in your neighborhood? A secret spot that you seek every now and then to reflect or reset? A viewpoint overlooking your favorite town that you climb to whenever you visit? A location in a faraway city that brings you joy? We all have connections to these kinds of places: places of solitude, of refuge, of wonder. For me, one of these places is Neal’s Yard, a little plaza tucked away from the crowds of busy Covent Garden in Central London, England.
No matter how often I visit London to see family and friends, I always seem to find my way back to this colorful spot, often on my own. And even though I’ve taken this exact photo from this very angle so many times over the past two decades, I still take it on each visit. The shops and businesses have changed over the years — I remember getting one of my first piercings here — but these days I’m content with ordering a slice of pizza at Homeslice or coffee at 26 Grains and sitting quietly on one of the benches, gazing up at the painted walls and windows.
What’s your favorite place, near or far? Share an image in a new post!
