Oops…I Ended up in Paris Again

I have been to Paris a few times since my first time in 2001 when I was 17. Every time I go I have a totally different experience because I am a different age and with different people.  Reid and I did SO much in just a few days and my feet were definitely yelling…

Auschwitz

I want to start by saying that I will be describing an experience from a tour I took backed up with internet research to fact check. I’m also aware that people who actually experienced this are relatives of the survivors and those lost and may potentially read this. I want to think of this as…

Miró in Barcelona

Although Barcelona is hugely influenced and overpowered by Gaudí, there are plenty of other artists that have left their mark in the city. We decided to step away from Gaudí and head to the Joan Miro museum. I love Miró and have a print from MOMA that I fell in love with a few years…

My Tour of the PNW…Fairbanks

My next stop on my PNW was to Fairbanks, Alaska. I really didn’t know anything about Alaska and even when I booked the ticket, I was not quite sure where I was flying in the United States. After looking at a map, I realized I was very far north and not anywhere near where I…

I spent my time in Munich at museums

Having just come from Berlin, I didn’t expect Munich to be sooooooooo much hotter! AC is not very popular here except for cooling the beer, so I spent my time in museums to stay cool. I went to the BMW Museum, Bavarian National Museum and the Pinakothek. In the middle of my museum going I treated myself…

Museums, museums and museums

  Today was a Prague museum crawl day. It all started with an Andy Warhol exhibit at the Gallery of Art Prague. I have seen Andy Warhol plenty of times in various museums, but I have never seen a Warhol exhibition. Many of the famous pieces were there as well as a few that I…

An art filled day in Stuttgart

What do you do when you wake up and there are ominous clouds in the sky? Walk around a museum of course! I took myself to the Kuntsmuseum Stuttgart where the regular collection was closed but the two special exhibitions were open; Luisa Richter and Gego. I found that I was very interested in the…
