The clouds look more powerful than the lion.

From Ikea:

While looking for ideas for furniture, my boyfriend and I decided to check out Ikea. And since we’re here, we might as well get their famous Swedish meatballs!

I crave for these babies.. especially with their lingonberry sauce!

Cost: $5.99

Where should we take you next?

My unpaid advertisement for British Airways. Haha.

Our shuttle stopped in front of this runway and I took a picture of the planes with the beautiful blue sky.

My views from the Atocha Train Station in Madrid, Spain.

I can oversee the tops of the botanical garden inside the train station, and looking outside the windows of the top floor I can see the roof’s clay shingles.

I love playing with the different settings on my Lumix LX7.

I have to get the names of these off my camera.. but I took pictures of the same scene while waiting at the airport in Morocco.

Bahia Palace.

05.14.2014

It just so happens that I wore my bright red Vans while visiting the Bahia Palace, with its brightly colored mosaics.

The first picture I took against the green squiggly lines.. and the following picture shows where that path leads. Then the bottom picture.. I looked down and was just amazed by the colors.

My following posts will (hopefully) show how beautiful this palace was. Though, the story of this palace is that it was supposed to be so grand and beautiful that they wanted it to be the greatest palace of its time. But it was so rushed in the making that it didn’t end up living to its reputation. Even so, I thought it was still beautiful.
