SUMMIT COUNTY — I know, it seems random, but sometimes, that’s what travel is — a series of random moments, linked together in a journey through space and time. Kind of like life, if you think about it. Following are a few more random scenes captured as Leigh and I rambled through Europe on trains, ferries, buses and on foot. Some of the photos link to specific stories, and others are, well, just … random, but you can always visit the Summit Voice travel section to get inspired for your next journey. If you have a random travel photo, or even an photo essay with a theme, that you’d like to share, send it to

This couple in Piran, Slovenia, almost seemed to become statuary parts of the seawall as the sun set behind them.
