Wanderlust : Spain 2007 - Valencia

Confession:  I have an obsession with seeing the world.  I read blogs daily written by expats or those two travel constantly.  I am jealous of them and their opportunities to travel this amazing planet.  Therefore I am starting a series that will document my travels.  Some are exciting, some are not.  I intend to make a life of it and will continue to add to this as I go.

Our last stop in Spain was in Valencia.  Again, we took the train from Barcelona for the day to visit the City of Arts and Sciences, designed by Santiago Calatrava.  The purpose of this entire trip was to study the different types of architecture that Spain has to offer (as my husband was studying to become, and now is, an architect).  Therefore, along the way we had seen mostly Antoni Gaudi's work and Roman ruins.  Imagine my surprise (not being a student of architecture) when we came upon some of the most futuristic looking buildings I have ever seen.  They are truly amazing works of art in and of themselves.

See the door opening?  I can't make this stuff up.  So cool. 


 And so ends our stay in Spain.  This walk down memory lane was fun, but also painful (visually).  I missed so many opportunities for amazing shots if only I would have had a DSLR then.  And also, if I had known how to use it.  Guess we have to go back!
