Welcome Back From Winter Break

Welcome Back From Winter Break!  I was in Spain and France and had a great time explore Barcelona, Figueres, Bilbao, and Paris over the break.  It was great to visit creative locations such as Antoni Gaudí's famous Park Güell in Barcelona seen above.  The food and culture is tremendous, one of my favorite Spanish foods is churros y chocolate seen below.

I also visited Salvador Dalí's house and museum in Figueres which was like visiting the mind of the artist himself with surrealistic room designs where the artist lived and worked later in his life and were he was buried.
It also houses one of his coolest pieces, a room seen below which is a portrait of actress Mae West when viewed from the right perspective.

I also had the chance to visit the amazing Guggenheim Bilbao Museum designed by architect Frank Gehry which also houses Jeff Koons iconic 'Puppy' sculpture.
