Like most things in my life, my love for architecture was spurred on by books.
At age 9, I received a book about the world's architectural landmarks and so for the next years onwards, I covered that book in post-its, reading, "Must see!" and soon the whole book was covered post-its about places to see, buildings to visit.
Oops. So much for being selective about the places that I want to visit.
In reality, I've yet to visit 10% of those places, a problem that I chalk up to time, specifically lack of time. That's a struggle, that particular cliched response about traveling, it's never the right time, maybe later when there will be adequate time. A friend sent me a link to Kate from the State's post about traveling, without planning or savings, and while I don't necessarily agree with her stance, I do agree with her comment about how we're always waiting for the right time to travel.
Fallingwater, arguably Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece, surpassing the Guggenheim, was one of the places that I wanted to visit. Past tense, because I've crossed it off my list of places as I just visited it. A house cantilevered over a waterfall? Yes, please!
