By |2019-05-25T12:06:39-05:00May 28th, 2015|Categories: Europe, Must-See|Tags: , , , , , |

St. Peter's Basilica is a must-see.  Breaking ground in 1506, it was completed in 1626.  St. Peter's Basilica is located in the smallest country in the world, the Vatican.  There are only 800 residents that call the Vatican their home. St. Peter's Basilica’s monument to Catholicism is gargantuan.  It is 730 feet long, and the dome reaches 450 [...]

I am occasionally spellbound by man’s will. His sheer determination. Bewildered and even confused. How did man accomplish this? Moments of wonderment come to mind when I think of Petra in Jordan, the Taj Mahal in India, the temples of Bagan in Burma, or the Tiger’s Nest Monastery in Bhutan. I had a similar sense of [...]

If there is a must see in Dubai, I believe it is the Burj Khalifa.   TheBurj Khalifa is the tallest man-made structure in the world. It checks in at 829.8 m (2,722 ft). There are 164 floors and over 24,000 windows. It took 10 years to construct this beautiful monstrosity. Over 100 km (62 mi) of pipes snake [...]
