Daily Prompt–Stranger In A Strange Land

What’s your favorite part about visiting a new place — the food? The architecture? The people watching?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us NEW.

I love going to new places. They thrill me.

I love everything about a new place. I love the new sights, the people, the museums, the food, the architecture, the parks, the scenery, everything. I take it all in.

Casa MilaWhat do I love the most? I think I enjoy the architecture of a place the most. I love seeing the unique buildings in a new place. Each area has its own style and its own distinctive architecture. Various masters have left their mark on the buildings of the area and I love to see these buildings. The churches, homes, museums, stadiums, parks, are all beautiful to me. One of the new places I went to that absolutely thrilled me to no end with its architecture was Barcelona. The buildings and parks of Antonio Gaudi are absolutely marvelous. The city is filled with his beautiful buildings.

The other thing I love about a new place is the food. I like to try new foods when I go to a new place. The foods of an area are always intriguing to me. I find it exciting to try the different foods of a new area and to find that I like new foods. That’s how we learn about new foods–to try different things in new places.

I also like to watch the people of the new area. The people are the key to the life of an area and it is always enjoyable to be able to watch them as they go about their lives. It is pleasant to go to a café and watch the people of an area as they go by.

Going to a new place is always exciting. The new place has many things to explore and things to do and see and taste. I enjoy a new place. I especially like its architecture and its food. And the people. Heck, I like it all!

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

  1. Well said. I like almost everything I see when I go to a new place. The ugly stuff I just shove out of my mind. 🙂

  2. The Hook says:

    That is one incredible shot.
    Great post, beautiful.
