I just won a contest from our local library, and when I picked up my gift basket it was filled with a variety of books. I instantly thought of writing this blog post when I read the title on this one. My husband and I took a road trip 8 years ago before we became parents, and it is one of my favourite holidays to date.
When my husband and I told our friends and co-workers we were planning on driving to Pittsburgh for a holiday, everyone asked if we were visiting family. The main highlight of the trip was to see Frank Lloyd Wright's "Falling Water" but we also wanted to see another smaller residential home he designed named "Kentuck Knob". We both love architecture and design & were excited to see these landmarks in real life. Books are great but you cannot imagine what it is really like to step onto the grounds at Falling Water & see the structure and how it was built amongst its natural environment. Our photos are not professional; but they show you some of our favourite elements.
I'm sure Pittsburgh has more to see and do since we last visited. Do yourself a favour & consider it while planning your next vacation. We also visited the Zoo which would be a great place to take our kids if we ever go back. We have hundreds of cute animal photos, I tried to stick to design & architecture. One of the best things about a road trip is finding new inspiration and looking at your surroundings with a new perspective. Relax & take it all in. Photos are a great way to help document and highlight your favourite parts.
