Barcelona

In 2006 I took my daughter on her very first trip outside the UK, in fact her first aeroplane flight anywhere!
The destination? Barcelona, we stayed in Vilinova La Geltru, but it was so very close by train to Barcelona we could not resist showing her the amazing sights of Gaudi's Barcelona.

This video will show the Casa Mila.
When Gaudi built the Casa MilĂ  in 1912, most people had no idea what to think of it. The shape of the building is completely unique and like nothing the city had ever seen before. It is covered in limestone, glass and marble, and shaped by several waves that have an amazing effect on the interior of the building. Originally it was built as an apartment complex but now it functions as a museum and a venue that hosts several different art and cultural events.

An early look at Stolkholm

Back in 2006 when I had a owned a Canon EOS Rebel XT / 350D camera
I had a short weekend trip to Stockholm and I am so impressed with how crisp and clear the images are, but then again the air is super clean there!

You will see The centre /Palace/Government buildings as well as a ferry trip out to Skansen and the Islands.
