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!
More Mish Mash!!
I realized I left my camera in Spain when I left 😦 so I have nothing new to add so for now some more mish-mash.
This first one is pretty typical in London, its the red double decker bus. Which I thought was honestly only a myth or a legend but no it’s for real. All the buses are actually like this and it’s so cool and so British and super posh. The point of this photo is, I thought it was super cool and wanted to remember. Plus the timing was perfect because there were no cars and/or people obstructing the shot, which seems to be almost impossible to do.
This is Malaga, Spain. I came here after my program ended for a little decompression time after a
stressful trying 3 months of teaching. (I say that with the most sarcasm I can possibly muster) Anyways, there’s nothing particular special about this photo, it’s just like any other beach photo but a Spanish beach therefore, automatically making it 490903 cooler than any old normal beach photo. (also said with lots of sarcasm)
Isn’t this kind of creepy?
So this photo was taken in the Canary Islands, this little chain of about 7 islands off of the coast of Africa that are owned by Spain. I love this photo because the forest looks sooooo creepy. Like not something you would expect to see on a tropical Spanish Island, but rather in a forest in Oregon or somewhere else. We were driving up Mount Teide which is also a huge volcano and were stopped by some police since it was raining the mountain was closed for 10 minutes while they cleared the rubble. It was super eerie to be up so high, with fog and a light rain and look out the window and see these creepy ass trees with eerie fog so I snapped a photo so I could be
haunted reminded of the beautiful site forever.
