Casa Batlló is a building restored by Antoni Gaudí in 1904-1906. The building looks very remarkable — like everything Gaudí designed. The local name for the building is Casa dels ossos (House of Bones). Much of the façade is decorated with a mosaic made of broken ceramic tiles (trencadís) that starts in shades of golden orange moving into greenish blues. interior design, hotel interiors, antoni gaudi, home interiors, design interiors, architecture interiors, place, barcelona spain, bedroom interiors

St. Pancras Hotel, London ~This grand double staircase, with its original wrought-iron balustrade and vivid patterned carpeting, swirls up three stories of this Gothic Revival hotel adjacent to St. Pancras Station. It was lovingly restored in 2011, but much of its original late-19th-century character remains, from the vaulted gold-leaf ceiling to the red hand-stenciled wall designs.
Aerial View of the Seven Mile Bridge, Florida Keys, Florida USA. Traveled this bridge many times going to Key West. Island to the left is Pigeon Key where the workers in the early 1900s stayed while working on Flagler's Railroad which runs through the island. Today, it is not used other than part of it is used for running and/or jogging and I think fishing. Beautiful clear aqua water. mile bridg, florida keys, beauti, key west, travel, aerial view, place, bridges, florida usa

Lovers bridge, Paris This is a bridge in Paris. You hang locks on it with the name of you & your boyfriend/girlfriend/bestfriend then throw the key into the river. So even though the friend/relationship may end, you can’t remove the lock. It stays there forever, as relevance to someone once a part of your life. paris, romanc, the bridge, art, luxury travel, locks, places, key, bucket lists

Cloud People of Peru. The figures' gazes are fixed where the first rays of the rising sun will appear over the vast Utcubamba Valley. Known as the Warriors of the Clouds, the Chachapoyas (a name given to them by the Inca who conquered them shortly before the arrival of the Spanish) were an ancient Andean people who inhabited the rain forests of northern Peru. Their civilization was decimated in the 18th century but they remain as a strain within general indigenous ethnicity in modern Peru. clouds, cloud peopl, easter island, peru, south america, stone walls, place, people, rising sun
Cloud People of Peru ....The figures balance aloft on the ledge of a cliff, their gaze fixed where the first rays of the rising sun will appear, waiting for a new day to dawn. Known by the name Warriors of the Clouds, the Chachapoyas were an ancient Andean people who inhabited the mist-swathed rainforests of what is now northern Peru. They were wiped out some five hundred years ago, and looking out over the vast Utcubamba Valley, these figures stand as remnants of their once great civilization.
Dragon on the Neues Rathaus, München/New Town Hall, Munich, Germany; this part of the building is called the Wurmeck ('Dragon/Worm Corner'); the dragon association may be due to a fabled plague-causing lindworm killed there or to the heraldic arms of the Schönecker family, who once had a house on the site.
