architectural elements and things that strike my fancy as I travel
"Gargoyles & Graffiti"chronicles architectural elements that I find interesting or unique in my travels. Gargoyles are my passion, but today graffiti (which I hate but am learning to love as it is everywhere) is as much a part of architecture as the gargoyles and decorative railings that thrill me.

Girona: Here I Come
Riverside area of Girona from Wikipedia
Starting to get super psyched about my upcoming cruise from Rome to Rome. I will visit Palermo, Sicily, Tunisia, Barcelona, Monte Carlo and Portofino ... back to Rome. (I know I have mixed up countries and states, but this is how I think of them.) As I have been to Barcelona twice in the last 3 years, I plan to go to Girona, Figueres and the Dali Museum. Don't get me wrong. I love love love Barcelona, but this time I want to venture out and how better to do it than on a Holland America ship tour.
Above is a photo from Girona, Spain. Looks absolutely amazing! Girona Cathedral sounds awesome too. More information from wikipedia can be found here.
