oh, the places you'll go...

i have been knitting, i really have. but for some reason, i haven't been able to force myself to snap photos of the latest creation. soon, my pretties!

so since i'm not feeling good, damn flu, i've been putzing around the house in my pajamas all night. i decided to start doing a visual inventory of the places i want to see on my trip to europe. so many of the itineraries online have "go here, do this," but without pictures. i am a visual person, people! i need pictures.

so i thought i'd start putting my own together. this inventory will undoubtedly grow substantially over the next few months.

stop 1: barcelona!
la sagrada familia.

catedral de barcelona.

la barceloneta beach.

parc guell.

casa batllo.

la pedrera. oh, that gaudi.


more montjuic.

side trip - montserrat.

stop 2: valencia!
city of arts and sciences.


plaza de la virgen and barrio del carmen.

stop 3: paris!
sacre-couer basilica and montmarte.

arc de triomphe stairs.

the eiffel tower, of course.

notre dame (and the roof, of course).

musee d'orsay.

the iles... ile de st-louis.

stop 4: venice!
just venice being venice.

basilica di san marco. my hotel is halfway between here and the rialto bridge - and right on a canal, of course.

the grand canal.

palazzo ducale (doge's palace).

the view from the campanile tower.


stop 5: rome!
the colosseum, of course.

st. peter's basilica.

the vatican.

the pantheon.

museo e galleria borghese.

janiculum hill.

then... then i will drag myself to the airport, most likely very, very sad to leave.

Christy that looks WONDERFUL. I'm so jealous. I know you'll have a great time.

My cousin just spent a semester in Rome. I can email her and ask for any little known gems if you want me to. Just Myspace me if yer interested.
