24 hours in los angeles

Los Angeles, like many cities, is not one that you should plan to visit for only 24 hours. But, if you're traveling on business or have a lay-over on a longer trip you should definitely make the most of the time you have and see what the city of angels has to offer.

a paris must see: musee de l'orangerie

We're not sure why this museum does not come up higher on the Top Ten lists - because it should. After a day trip to Monet’s gardens in Giverny we were on the hunt for all things Monet in Paris. Our first stop was Musee de l’Orangerie. This museum located in the Jardin des Tuilleries, houses Monet’s crowning work, the water lily series or Nympheas. Painted in his garden at Giverny, seeing these large format paintings up close immediately takes you back to his beautiful gardens.

When traveling to Barcelona one can expect to be constantly surrounded by art through its spectacular architecture and sculptures. Barcelona has many world-famous museums that should not be missed. Here are just a few: 

gaudi in barcelona

It is impossible to wander through Barcelona and not see the influence of Antonio Gaudi. The world-famous architect was a loyal Catalan. His work was not always appreciated by citizens or critics. However, his work is now showcased and respected throughout Spain and the world.

Gaudi’s modernist (art nouveaux) style is extremely unique and contains highly individualistic designs. Gaudi’s work always included forms from nature within his designs. Sea shells, leaves and wandering vines were often interwoven in his structures.
