Thanks to all who visited recent photo posts highlighting the educational traveling tour to Madrid, Toledo, Seville, and Barcelona. Here’s the last set. Which one do you like best?
Spain’s architecture is dizzying, but by some miracle, the shapes and patterns blend together in harmony. The ornate details are draw-dropping. Thank you for accompanying me. Next June’s trip is Southern Italy….
Traveling to Madrid, Toledo, Seville, and Barcelona was filled with heat (35-44c), bright colors, fun food, and boundless patterns everywhere. Here are some pictures highlighting the colors and patterns from the trip. You decide which is the best shot.
I’ve just returned from traveling with students and new friends. Here are clues for my traveling blogosphere buddies. Can you place me in the right country? Give yourself a point. Another for guessing the city. Award yourself a final point if you can guess the famous location/building.
Which shot would you jump into? How many points did you get?
Six months ago, our educational traveling group went to Athens and island hopped in the Aegean Sea. I’m sure I took over a hundred photos, but only shared a few. If you missed the original posts, I linked them at the end. I enjoy looking at summer shots during the winter and vice versa. They always stir a memory. Here are 5 + 10 shots you haven’t seen.
Which ones resonate with you?

Okay, last photo post about Greece and the islands. Thank you for allowing me to share them with you. It’s a magical place and none more so than the island of Santorini. Someone on the trip said that in 2014, Santorini was voted “The prettiest place on Earth”. I’ll let you decide. Here are some of the pictures taken on this volcanic island in the southern part of the Cyclades Islands in the Aegean Sea.
The largest church of Santorini is the Orthodox Cathedral. It was founded in 19th century and in close distance is the Catholic Cathedral dedicated to Saint John the Baptist. During the Byzantine times was built the famous church of Panagia Episkopi that has survived many invasions and is well-preserved up to this day. The Dominican Convent is inhabited by 12 nuns. We found a chapel where mass was about to begin. They are behind the curtain behind the altar. We sat and listened to them sing.
Time to head back to the ship.

One last picture of a meal. My favorite. The authentic Gyro!
