While walking near the Olympic Park in Barcelona, we were afforded this view of the city!


This is the entrance to the Madrid Historical Museum, formally known as the Museo Municipal. It was originally built in 1673 as the Real Hospice Ave Maria and San Fernando. Generally the building is very striking, but this entrance is what really caught my eye! You just don’t see architecture and detail like this in Canada!!



This is the monument to Miguel de Cervantes at the Plaza de España (“Spain Square“) in Madrid. Not only was Madrid beautiful to walk around during the day, the city was just as amazing to walk around at night!



… drink as the Spaniards do! Sangria, lots and lots of amazing sangria!!


These boots belong to Mesut Özil, a German international that currently plays for Real Madrid. What drew me to take this picture was the colour of the boots. To the people who know me, it is no big surprise that a bright green pair of boots would grab my attention! The light boxes that each pair has below them gives off the perfect light!


This photo represents 1/4 of the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, home of Real Madrid. It is hard to depict the try scale of the stadium, but if interested, you can read more about it here.



While in Madrid this past summer, we took a stadium tour of the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, home to Real Madrid. It is the most grand and beautiful stadium that I have ever set foot into! The trophy room contains the football boots of all the current Real Madrid players, two of which are pictured here.

My parents went to visit my brother in Ecuador over Christmas and brought us back this hand carved gourd. It is approximately 6 inches tall. The work is so intricate that every time that I look at it, I see something new! This photo only represents 1/4 of the work.



The symbol of England, the Three Lions. This is one set of gates that lead to Buckingham Palace. It was a madhouse, I was surprised that I was able to get a clear shot of anything!



A little piece of information that I received while in London is that Big Ben is actually the name of the housed in this tower. From that point on I referred to it as “Big Ben’s House”!
