HOME SWEET HOME
There is nothing more comforting than coming home, whether this is for the country English walks surrounded by the beauty of nature, the family spirit at Christmas or just the strongly brewed British ciders. I have caught just a few of favourite memories spent at home, in England.
The César Manrique Foundation is located in the studio-home that the artist lived in, situated in Taro de Tahiche (Lanzarote). It is probably the work that best represents Manrique’s artistic and personal ideals. Built in 1968 on top of a volcanic trail from a volcanic eruption that occurred in 1730-36. It uses the natural formation of five volcanic bubbles to make an unusual and exemplary living space within a natural space.
Lanzarote is the easternmost island of the Canary Islands and has a volcanic origin. It was born through fiery eruptions and has solidified lava streams as well as extravagant rock formations. From the spectacular volcanic landscape of the Timanfaya National Park, the intricate cave formations of Jameos Del Aqua to the action packed surfing beaches of Famara, Lanzarote has a depth and beauty which makes it a totally unique place to visit.
Prague, capital city of the Czech Republic, is bisected by the Vltava River. Nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires,” it’s known for its Old Town Square, the heart of its historic core, with colorful baroque buildings, Gothic churches and the medieval Astronomical Clock.
