Another year is almost over, so it’s a prime & optimal time to review what we’ve both enjoyed during these past few months we’ve been traveling & the months that preceded them to see just how lucky we’ve been.

We’ve seen the fantastic change of autumn in the leaves & trees of Nikko National Park, we’ve experienced hot modern art and hotter hot springs in Beppu and found the forgotten Belgrade Museum of Contemporary Art.

Building For The Future

Together with Franca, we’ve looked through our photos, posts & diaries and pulled together lists of our favorite architecture, art, design & music from these previous months so we can see just how lucky we have been in our journey thus far.

This week we’ve already showcased our favorite street art in 2012, now we’re doing the same for all the buildings – old & new – that we feel need more attention, or are simply too amazing to pass over. However, after all the collecting we’ve still just too many to leave aside, so, we’re going to post our huge huge list in two parts; this first part and then a follow-up later in the week with part 2.

So here it comes, enjoy!
