The Most Beautiful Building I Ever Did See: Barcelona’s Palau de la Música Catalana

Oh. My. Days. If there is one thing the stunning city of Barcelona is known for, it's the city's unique architecture, and mostly the architecture of Antoni Gaudí.

Welcome to Antigua and Barbuda! (Arriving in the City of St Johns)

What a place this is, you guys!! Antigua and Barbuda is part of the British Commonwealth, with old Queen Liz as head of state, but with its own Prime Minister who governs the islands independently of the UK.

The Village of Saint-Émilion (Aka Wine Central Station, please mind the gap. Also, who needs a tour anyway)

The medieval village of Saint-Émilion is a tiny but world-renowned kind of a place, pals! Located in the Aquitaine region of South West France and a mere hop skip and a jump away from the wine capital city of the world, it was pretty much a given that as I was staying in Bordeaux anyway [...]
