A - Blog Your Name Out!

All right, so, my little friend Stephanie Montenegro, whose fun, happy-go-lucky blog What's So Random? literally hit my random list one fine day, is hosting her first blog challenge. It's a fun one, too, if I do say so myself. Here's her terms: Using your first, middle, or last name (any of which must consist of 5 or more letters), blog about something each day, starting with the first letter and continuing on consecutively until you've used the last letter.

Since my name is Alyssia, and today's the first day of the challenge, I'll start with the letter "A".


Now, I could go into some extensive exposition of what kind of architecture appeals most to me, why I love it, and so on, but I figured I'd keep it simple. And just show you.

The Collegiate Church of St. Peter at Westminster,
otherwise known as Westminster Abbey
London, England, UK
Neuschwanstein Castle
Bavaria, Germany
Caisleán Bhaile Shláine,
otherwise known as Slane Castle
Slane, County Meath, Ireland
The Library of Congress circa 1898
Washington, D.C., USA

These are just a few, because really, I could go on like this for days upon days. I would like to know, however... What are some of YOUR favorite architectural masterpieces and why?

Peace, Love, and Junior Mints,

Those are indeed grand buildings. I don't think I would be too inclined to live in them. Here in Guelph we have some lovely old limestone buildings that were designed and built by a Scottish architect. The city has preserved them nicely. They are smaller and more human in scale.
Nice to meet you on the blog your name out challenge.

I'm following from Stephanie's Blog your Name. We're off to a good start. Good choice for A and grand buildings.

I don't recall you asking for a permission from me to publish the picture of my Neuschwanstein Castle :))

A charming blog, Al!

@DEZMOND Haha! Oh, I'm sorry, do you live there? Might I drop in for a spot of tea some day? Thanks for the sweet props to my blog. ;)
