New Muesem, Bowery and all the in between.
I think I probably saw about 25 churches during all my travels. Obviously I don’t remember all of them but here are some of my favorites.
Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, Spain.
We’ve all seen the photos of the outside, but how often do you get a peak inside? not very often. It’s full of beautiful stain glass, vibrant colors and a lot os tourists. This Cathedral is one of the largest I’ve ever seen and fun fact; after 100 years (?) it’s still not complete.
St. Patricks Cathedral, Dublin, Ireland
St. Patrick’s Cathedral early on a Monday morning. Another gem.
Various Churches, Oporto, Portugal.
Disclaimer: these photos aren’t as good because well you weren’t really supposed to take photos inside these churches but my friend, being the sneaky lady she is took a ton on her phone, sent them to me and alas, here we are. Another disclaimer: the photos cannot capture the beauty of these cathedrals. Yet, another disclaimer; I saw so many churches here that I don’t know the names of all of them, but here they are!
By far my favorite city I’ve visited this far. Keep in mind I’ve only been in Spain for about one month and only visited 3 or 4 places but once my program ends I for sure want to come back and spend some more time in Ireland. Despite the shit weather the sun was (normally) always shining, the fish and chips were banging and let me just say I feel in love with a bartender who had the greenest eyes I’ve ever seen.
I moved into my host families house about a week ago (week agooooo). It’s located in a the small town or pueblo of Talavera de la Nueva – closest city Talavera de la Reina (10 mins by car) – closest city you’ve heard o Madrid (1.5 hours by bus, train or car). So far I’ve had a chance to walk about the town (takes about 20 mins) it’s filled with Ceramics, Orange trees and sprawling blue skies. I love it, but I also miss New York.
