5 weeks in Italy, 5 days in Barcelona. September-October 2013
I'm back from 5 weeks in Italy and 5 days in Barcelona. These are slideshow videos from the last day in Spain featuring a visit to La Sagrada Familia, Gaudi's masterpiece of sacred but highly whimsical architecture.
I scattered a bit of my Mother’s ashes in the Garden adjacent to the Cathedral.
Also shown are photos from a visit to La Boqueria Mercado, Barcelona’s centuries old market.
The Italia Video consists of the 129 best photos from Italy culled from several thousand pictures taken in Milano, Bologna, Cinque Terre, Pisa, Siena, Toscana, Orvieto, Assisi, Padova, Vicenza, and Venezia.
I was fortunate to have been hosted by several Italian friends especially at the 12th Century Castle, Montechino, originally built by the Knights Templar, and upgraded and improved every century or so by whomever had the power to possess the castle.
With the help of friends I also scatted a bit of my Mother’s ashes in Italy and in Spain.
