Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller – Ibn Battuta
As you’ve probably guessed, I’m a writer who loves to travel, or a traveler who loves to write . . . anyway, the pictures shown here are from three of my favorite places.
Catherine’s Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia. This amazing blue and gold confection is gilded with over 100 kilograms of gold. Interesting fact: Catherine’s palace was torn down and rebuilt from the ground up three different times during the 1700’s – an era when the average Russian citizen struggled to feed their family.
The Cathedral De Mallorca is found in Spain and the magnificence of this angelic architecture is hard to wrap your mind around. Rows of Gothic towers reach for the heavens and dwarf the tiny people standing nearby. It took 400 years to complete, which is hardly surprising when you see the result.
Clon Macnoise in Shannonbridge, Ireland was founded in the year 544. This ancient monastery rests on the banks of the Shannon River. It’s a captivating place, and its haunting beauty stays with you long after parting.
If you love to travel or just love to read about traveling, you’ve found the right place. Enjoy!
