Wifey B: Yes, it does, and drives my hubby crazy. If it was his tower, he'd have someone devising a plan to fix it. He can't stand crooked wall hangings, much less that.
One of the joys of traveling Europe is the architecture and it's not just in landmarks. In the US, if you're west of the Mississippi, old buildings are something like the 1970's it seems. On the East coast of the US, the late 1800's or early 1900's with a few here and there older. So, to travel to Europe and find yourself surrounded with buildings built centuries ago is so extraordinary. Some incredible Italian architecture displayed by Scott. However, I think last summer we were shocked as early on our cruise we went to Croatia and were amazed with all the war and strife they've been through, how much was preserved.
The waterfront in many areas tends to bring together history and the accompanying beauty, modern beauty, and natural beauty.
It's also similar at first glance from area to area, but you quickly learn to enjoy the uniqueness of each area. Scott is a true connoisseur of beauty and his sharing made our trip so much more enjoyable, but now makes our memories and those areas we haven't seen even more so. Always appreciated.
