Only 19 days until I leave to the land of Gaudi!

I can't believe it is only 19 days until I take off, then one plane sleep until I set foot in the land of Gaudi! The pictures above are on the SoulTravelers3 blog, a family of 3 living on the road (take a look at the site, there are adorable pics of their little girl amongst the Gaudi architecture in Barcelona). Or take a Gaudi virtual tour here: Casa Batllo: Get Your Gaudi Fix With This Barcelona Beauty

Practically unfathomable that I have only 19 days left in Vancouver, and less than 2 weeks until I leave my apartment (spending my last week in a friend's apartment while she is on vacation)... my how time flies!!! Tempted to write a long, thoughtful blog entry, but, alas, I have contract work to do, and I'd better get to it!

Post-script: just struck me how many phallic symbols there are in Gaudi's architecture ;-)

Are you leaving to travel around the world in 19 days?

Roberta said...

Yes!! I am giving up my apartment, getting rid of almost everything I own, and I anticipate being gone for a year.... very exciting! I start off with a month in Barcelona, followed by a month each in Paris, Rome, Berline, Rhodes, Athens and Lisbon... then who knows... ;-)

Hola from Barcelona! Thanks for the link love!


Time will really start flying fast now for you! Smart to go slow and take your time, but don't forget to add a trip to Santorini while you are in Athens.

Enjoy! Slow world travel is the best!!

Hola, and you're welcome. I feel the fast in my countdown, but I am looking forward to really slow travel once I set off.... the benefits of a month in each place.

Hmmm.... is Santorini even "open" in December? I expect it will be quiet, but yes, I shall go ;-)
