One of my favourite things to do when I travel is to visit religious buildings.
My best memory from my Paris trip is actually Notre Dame. After a long day of sightseeing and shopping, we went into the cathedral, and it was like someone turned of a button or something. Or maybe they turned it on.. We came in there and all of a sudden everything was quiet and peaceful. Such a contrast to the city outside. And then there's something about that gothic architecture, that makes you feel very humble.
I think it's so fascinating to see how much they put into the churches back in the day, even though a society might have been poor, the churches was rich. So much art and beauty in one place, it's like you can feel how important the building was for it's people.
After that visit to Notre Dame, religious buildings are somethning that I always have to visit on trips. And when I'm there I light a candle for a special person, and maybe I buy a little thing, like a cross.
The rosaries on the pictures are memories from good travels. The black one is from a stunning basilica in Malta, called The Mosta Dome. And then there's a couple from the St. Stephen's Basilica that we checked out on our Budapest trip.
