Ship in Miniature, and two local events



We visited the The Museu MarĂ­tim (Maritime Museum) in Barcelona on our trip to Spain. My husband is a boat lover and I decided to tag along. He is introduced me to ship models quite 
awhile ago.  

I love things in miniature and fascinated by all the work that goes into these models. Ship models have been made since people took to the water. Love seeing all those tiny details. I can't imagine how long they take to make and perfect the craft of model making. I have to admit I didn't appreciate ship models but have come to love them

More on that architecture


Barcelona has varied and fantastic architecture. It is fun to walk in the city center and take roads and streets most tourists don't take. On our trip, we took many walks and purposely made the road less traveled a priority. Drink and food breaks were a must as well.

For the love of Barcelona's architecture

Barcelona Cathedral
Love the buildings in Barcelona! The Gothic Quarter (Barri Gotic) is my favorite and of course Gaudi. Walking and photographing is one of my favorite things to do in this beautiful city. More photo to come from my past trip

Thinking of Barcelona Today


Thinking of Barcelona! I have just visited the city and sat eating and drinking on the Ramblas. Watching all the people walking by. 

Barcelona is a vibrant and lively city but also laid back. This was my second visit to
Barcelona. I love this city, the museums, the architecture, 
the food, the walks and the fun vibes. 

What happened this week is very sad to me and my prayers go out to the people 
of Barcelona and the people visiting this great city. I don't understand the people who
carry out these attacks and never will.
