Mt. Etna erupts again!!! This time we got in the car and drove all the way up the mountain! Unfortunately, my nice camera is broken so I could not take the best pictures. The lava was spewing so high and the sound of the eruption was amazing.

Me with my favorite volcano, Mt. Etna <3

This is a shot from when we got to the top of the mountain

This photo was taken from someone on base near our town of Aci Trezza

We went to Barcelona over President's Day Weekend which was amazing. The architecture was spectacular and different from any we have seen. The tapas were delicious and the Sangria was how I had hoped it would taste. :)

Sagrada Familia at night

Sagrada Familia. This church began construction in 1982 and is anticipated to be done in 2026! It was opened in 2010 and is the most amazing sight to see. It was designed by famous architect, Gaudi, from Spain.

Inside the Sagrada Familia

The architecture inside is as amazing as the outside
