From The Desk Of M. Ward: Boboli Gardens, Florence, Italy

M. Ward: When I finished my first record back in 2000, the first European companies to support my music were based in Brussels (62TV) and Paris (Le Disque Mange Tout). So I spent a lot of time traveling around western Europe playing music and trying to learn French, but also finding time to play le touriste américain. I feel fortunate that I’ve had the time to see some of the greatest museums and public spaces in the world. They have blown my mind too many times to mention.


Ward: No words to describe except that this is easily the greatest landscape architecture I’ve ever seen. Pack a water, though, because it’s vast. Also, lots of climbing. There’s nothing close to it that I’ve seen anywhere else in the world.
