Giving Thanks in 7 Languages

The pumpkin pies are out of the oven, Mr. TWS is starting on the sweet potatoes, and a turkey will be roasting soon. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays here in the United States. We indulge, watch some football, work on a seasonal jigsaw puzzle and think about how grateful we are for friends, family and travel!

Barcelona: Scenes from Eixample

I’ve been back from Spain for a month and a half, but I’m still thinking about the cities, the sea, the food and the people! Many of you have already seen my postcards from Girona, snapshots of Madrid, posts about Barcelona’s “Block of Discord”, Catalonian wine country and more. For Travel Photo Thursday, I want to share some photos of Barcelona’s Eixample Disrict, the heart of the city’s “raux i seny” design culture and most of its Moderniste architecture.
