Sagrada Familia - mind officially blown.

I'm dreaming of Europe again tonight and just had to share with you the genius that is Gaudi.

The Sagrada Familia was definitely a highlight of our trip in Barcelona. Construction of the church began in 1882 and is still under construction today. It was amazing to walk through those doors, watch the men at work and be a part of such an incredible piece of art. I can only hope to go back one day and see the finished masterpiece.

Seriously, it was unlike anything I have ever seen, Gaudi's design and aesthetic is just unreal. I'm pretty sure this guy dreamed in cartoons ;)
