I’ve always felt the best way to get to know a new place is to learn about its history.One of my first stops when I got to Nashville was Belmont Mansion.
This month one of the most famous churches in the world received a building permit a mere 137 years after construction began. Even though it is still under construction, La Sagrada Familia, designed by Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí has been dropping jaws for a century. Dubbed as one of the greatest modernist architectural feats this Roman Catholic basilica now has a permit….to be built!
The first time I visited the Hamptons it was cold, super windy and completely covered in snow. It was miserable to be honest. There were not many businesses open and it just seemed so desolate. All these big beautiful homes, completely empty.
In October, Jennefer and I were invited to visit Quebec City to learn about the full process of producing the highest quality hardwood floors; and as a plus, we were also able to explore this beautiful city!
A few years ago I was lucky enough to invite myself to visit with friends who were at the time living in Switzerland. I was ecstatic! I spent a full week walking around with my mouth and eyes wide open. While I could literally spend hours talking about the history, the architecture, cobblestones, and the ALPS! I won’t. Today I want to share some of the spaces I didn’t even get to go into!
