This is the most beautiful structure I've ever had the honor of stepping into. The Church of Our Savior on the Spilled Blood (or, Church of the Resurrection) is a church in St. Petersburg, Russia. Named for Alexander II, a tsar that was murdered...

3645 LA-18, Vacherie, LA 70090, USA
Standing on the porch of Oak Alley Plantation and looking out at the hundred-year-old oaks, I imagined I saw into the past.

Sultan Ahmet Mahallesi, Atmeydanı Cd. No:7, 34122 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey
In the summer of 2006, my family and I went to Turkey for about three weeks. We started out in Istanbul, then spent the rest of the time on the coast in Turunç and Knidos. I can really say it was a great family vacation, there were 13 of...
Save Place
Sultan Ahmet Mahallesi, Ayasofya Meydanı, 34122 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey
first night in Istanbul, summer breeze cool and uplifting, local beer in hand - cold, delicate on the palate - food ordered... the sun setting, casting shades of peach and blue and glowing shadows across Hagia Sophia. I felt like I could reach out...
Save Place
14, Újezd 420, 118 00 Malá Strana, Czechia
I never would have happened upon this monument if it weren't for some friends who were studying in Prague. It's sort of off the beaten path in Malá Strana, Prague, but had I not seen it, I might not have any thing else to say about...
Save Place
Stephansplatz 3, 1010 Wien, Austria
Stephansdom is the most beautiful leftover of the mighty Austro-Hungarian Empire of the Hapsburg family that I've ever seen. It stands in the middle of the luxurious Viennese historic district. An architectural marvel, the church also holds the...

Save Place
6 Parvis Notre-Dame - Pl. Jean-Paul II, 75004 Paris, France
On top of the famous cathedral our one rainy day gave just right amount of gravitas to the day. I love the feel of the photo as so many people recognize this place but no one has yet told me they got a better shot of it.
Save Place
On the way to Ouarzazate, perhaps after you see the Hollywood movie sets, visit the ruins of a real Kasbah--slightly off the beaten track. I was struck by the beautiful doors and how the walls held us in the past...
Save Place
Boulevard de la Corniche, Casablanca 20000, Morocco
In the Hassan II mosque in Casablanca, you walk, barefooted, into the past. The quiet and beautifully marbled walls and intricate tilework echo the prayers of hundreds of years. Make sure to see the baths in the basement. The size of this mosque...
Save Place
Adare, Co. Limerick, Ireland
Adare is known as Ireland's most beautiful village and I saw why when we got there. There are such beautiful houses there. I adore thatches! It is absolutely charming. If you do not believe them or me, check for yourself :)
Save Place
Front Lodge, Front Lodge, Blarney Castle, Shean Lower, Blarney, Co. Cork, Ireland
I had red somewhere that kissing the Blarney Stone is one of the 99 things one must do before he/she dies so while in Ireland we could not miss it. I was very brave at the bottom of the castle but up there I almost did not do it. Luckily my...
