  1. Fish and Chips

    17 Oct 2017
    It was Canada Day and I was in London enjoying some art museums. To get away from the crowds I went to a restaurant in Westminster. I knew I had to get some authentic Fish in Chips while in the UK so today was perfect to check that off my…

  2. Pato Taquito

    17 Oct 2017
    I’m starting a new series on the meals I enjoyed in Europe over the summer. While in London my friends introduced me to a chill, Spanish restaurant in Bloomsbury. The main course (Super Nachos) was very good but it was actually the appetizer that stood out to me. I glanced…

  4. Barcelona: Arc de Triomf

    13 Sep 2017
    After getting to know the Navas neighborhood in Barcelona I walked to Passeig Sant Joan to see The Arc de Triomf. I was fascinated by the arc because there is an Arc de Triomphe in Place Charles de Gaulle and there is also the Washington Square Arch. The Arc in…

  5. Barcelona: Via Laietana

    08 Sep 2017
    The Gothic Quarter or Barri Gòtic was probably my favorite location in Barcelona. (La Barceloneta is a close second) It’s the center of Barcelona’s “old town” and stretches from La Rambla to Via Laietana. I actively avoided La Rambla for a few days because of pickpocket activity (The terrorist attack…

  6. Barcelona: Jazz Sí

    01 Sep 2017
    After walking through Park Güell and hiking to the top of Parc del Carmel I needed to rest my legs. I discovered there was a jazz themed Tapas bar in Tamarit. Ever since I got back from New Orleans last year I’ve had a great appreciation for live jazz. The…

  7. Barcelona: Platja de Sant Sebastià

    30 Aug 2017
    When I got to Barcelona, Spain for the tail end of my trip to Europe I knew I had to visit the beach. I spent my first day brushing up on my Spanish and walking around the neighborhood I was staying. (Which was called Navas by the way) The Metro…

  8. Avignon: La Manutention

    28 Aug 2017
    One of the more difficult aspects of planning my first trip to Europe invloved figuring out the places I was going to. Initially it was going to be London and Barcelona. Paris was a late addition because getting a train there from London was very cheap. My friend and art…

  9. Une Nuit À Paris

    24 Aug 2017
    My last night in Paris was especially memorable because I spent it with new friends. We walked around a while before discovering several groups of people enjoying music and wine near the water. I think it was near La Seine. I brought my iPad because my friend, Will wanted to…

  10. Basilica of The Sacred Heart of Paris

    19 Aug 2017
    My adventure in Paris felt like a dream and I think that sentiment came through in the paintings I made there. After the painting of Square Louise Michel was finished I walked up the hill and found a series of staircases leading to the incredible Basilica of The Sacred Heart…
