As I settle back into school here in Copenhagen from my two-week travel break I am overwhelmed by the amount of pictures to surf through. Two weeks and 1000+ pictures!
A bit more manageable is my sketchbook. Although we were constantly moving, I tried my best to take time to sit down, soak up the experience and sketch.
I will remember sitting on the ledge of a roof, sketching skylines and having nosy tourists or funny old men peek over my shoulder to take a look at what I am drawing. Oftentimes these curious strangers would strike up a conversation. These conversations are some of the best memories of the trip.
To introduce my travels I will give you a peek into my sketchbook. I added some watercolor paint after so this qualifies as watercolorWEDNESDAY XI.

Clock Tower in the center of Old Town in Prague. Every hour a clock show would entertain mobs of tourists, ending with a live trumpet player announcing the hour with his horn.
