laurenepbath Here's the other lavender shot that everyone asked for. I think I shot these fields literally from every single angle. Lol. @flightcentreau #flightcentre_france 22h

laurenepbath I posted this on my Facebook page yesterday and was asked to post it here as well - Provence bee hives, so pretty! @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_France 1d

laurenepbath ​And this picture basically sums up why we travel, for me this is absolutely ​worlds apart from what I see daily in Australia. Costa Brava was just ​lovely and I’m glad we made the effort to venture out of Barcelona. See ​you next time Spain! @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_Spain 1d

laurenepbath ​I had to go for the classic through the CASTLE WALL shot in Costa Brava. ​That’s right – there’s a castle. And an adorable little bay. *Sigh.

laurenepbath ​On my second last day in Barcelona mum and I decided to hire a driver ​and venture up the coast to popular coastal region Costa Brava. It was an ​early start so I could make my sunrise. (I’m such an addict, haha) Early ​morning scenes like this always justify the alarm. @FlightCentreAu

laurenepbath I've literally just posted 25 full sized lavender/ sunflower shots on my Facebook page - "Pirie Bath Photography". The link is in my bio if you want to see some pretty shots. :) 2d

laurenepbath ​I stumbled across this little alleyway close to tourist hot spot “Las ​Ramblas”. I don’t know why but I felt compelled to shoot here and my ​patience was rewarded when this adorable little girl ran past me from ​nowhere. Check Facebook for loads of European photos!

laurenepbath ​One of my favorite days spent in Barcelona with mum was definitely the ​day we explored Boqueria Market. As an ex chef I love markets at the best ​of times but these ones were insane! I couldn’t decide between sharing a ​photo of piles of fruit or piles of candy! Lol. (I went with the healthier ​option) @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_Spain 2d

laurenepbath ​More sightseeing! On our sightseeing days I didn’t like to use the camera ​too much but I couldn’t resist this shot of mum at Park Guell. For those ​planning to visit Barcelona don’t forget to book your spot to enter the ​park – I wrongly assumed there would be spots left if I just arrived and ​had to go back the next day. Oops. Definitely worth the effort though. ​@FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_Spain 3d

laurenepbath ​And what trip overseas is complete without some epic skyporn? I woke
​up on my first day in Barcelona and caught a taxi to the beachfront to see ​how it compared to my Aussie beaches. Pretty well as you can see. Haha. ​@FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_Spain

laurenepbath ​Barcelona, Spain! This was my mum’s dream destination and we are
​definitely planning our next trip to Spain! A few short nights in Barcelona ​was nowhere near close to being enough. This is the Fonts de Montjuïc, ​which wasn’t running on the day I went. Instead I opted for a great ​reflection shot of the impressive details. @FlightCentreAu#FlightCentre_Spain

  •   laurenepbath @nicckers I'm sure you will, you love to travel!! :) 2d
  •   laurenepbath @markhanlon72 I will definitely return! How does the UK compare to Australia? :) 2d
  •   laurenepbath @jpuntas I'll let you know - I had @ovunno showing me around a fair bit. :) 2d
  •   laurenepbath @whereswiwi haha. I was lucky in that respect. I totally loved Barcelona! :) 2d
  •   xiahua24 Lovely :) 2d
  •   alessandra_ginefra Y love 2d
  •   markhanlon72 @laurenepbath The UK is good for me work wise. Being here 11 years now I am settled, but I'm definitely still an Aussie. Travel wise it's fantastic being on Europe's door step and I've made full advantage of it. I'm currently in Florida on holidays which is a manageable 8 hour flight from London - another perk of living on this side of the world. I do however miss Australia and that will always be my home. 2d

laurenepbath ​And here she is – my mum! Arguably the best person in the world! Mum
​has been a big supporter of my work, my career transition and still looks ​after me when I need it. It was my privilege to explore Europe with her ​and I hope it’s just the first of many overseas trips for us. ​@FlightCentreAu makes dreams a reality – there is absolutely no way I ​could have organized a trip this size with my busy schedule. ​#FlightCentre_France

laurenepbath ​In addition to the lavender and sunflowers Provence is actually still really ​beautiful with the regular colored crops. I was especially interested in ​photographing this cute falling down barn lost in a field of wheat. I just ​needed another Instagrammer there with me to pose. Haha. ​@FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_France 4d

laurenepbath ​For those that don’t believe me – this is lavender NEXT to sunflowers. And
​just to make the entire scene even more beautiful – quaint little wooden ​bee houses. I think I would love to eat that honey! @FlightCentreAu

laurenepbath ​I may have also forgotten to mention that the lavender fields in
​Provence sit side by side with sunflower fields!!! I mean can this place be ​any more “Instagrammable”? And hey, I love our Aussie sunflower fields ​but this place has LAVENDER NEXT TO SUNFLOWERS! Haha. ​@FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_France

laurenepbath ​Sooooooo, did I mention that mum and I went to Provence so that I could ​photograph the flowering lavender fields? I’m not going to lie; this was ​kind of a photography high point for me. Imagine that in every direction ​you look the views are so stunning you can’t take a bad picture if you try?! ​This was a great day for me because it gave mum a chance to see me in ​“landscape photographer” mode. She was suitably impressed. Lol. @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_France 4d

laurenepbath ​Like every tourist that visits Paris I took about a million photos of the ‘
​Eiffel Tower. Rather than bore you with every one of them I have chosen ​my favorite – because it’s an angle not many photographers go for, the “underbelly of the beast” haha. Shot on dusk with my Paris friend ​@juanjerez keeping me company. @FlightCentreAu #FlightCentre_France

laurenepbath ​I really like this scene, it’s a street in Montmartre where mum and I took a ​guided walking tour. The area has a lot of history and we spent a very ​enjoyable 2 hours learning more about it. See! How would I have had time ​to Instagram when I was enjoying this? ;) @FlightCentreAu#FlightCentre_France 5d

laurenepbath ​What trip to France would be complete without some sightseeing? Mum ​and I had to hit all the usual spots – the Louvre (pictured), La Basilique du ​Sacré Cœur de Montmartre, Notre Dam and the Eiffel Tower were ​amongst a few of the places we hit. Even though it’s busy and there are ​lines and people it’s all just worth it. Paris is the most historical place I’ve ​ever visited and I loved every minute. @FlightCentreAu#FlightCentre_France 5d
  •   laurenepbath @christinesalz I've heard Rome is amazing - my mum went after I went home :) 5d
  •   laurenepbath @mrk60 thanks a lot - it's a bit different :) 5d
  •   laurenepbath @sd_shereedornan absolutely - it's really so wonderful. No other way to describe it! 5d
  •   laurenepbath @cardenas_morgane thanks for the great advice! I did get to Provence but only quickly- shots to come :) 5d
  •   neat0304 Chloe has loved every minute, lucky thing! I can't wait to see her photos and give her a big arse hug when she gets off the plane! I can only imagine your photos there! 5d
  •   cardenas_morgane That s great! Cant wait to see the pics :) hope you enjoyed being in that part of France 5d
  •   anaiisweimer Paris is not my favorite city, even the architecture and the louvre are really really beautiful ! I spent a good time in that museum. But if you get a chance to travel in the east part of France, you should go to Strasbourg where there is the European Parliament. (In case, my mum has a B&B not fareway from this city). Anyway, enjoy your time in this country :) 4d
  •   ciara_cat It's a very pretty city, and easy to get around. Love the old French towns too. 3d
