Somewhere Over The Rainbow

Stop the World, I do NOT want to get off. Well I guess this is the official "launch" of  this blog THE NOMAD ARCHITECT. I am not exactly a techno-geek, so I am sure I have made many technical mistakes putting this thing out there. But, I am boldy going where I have never gone before - the blogosphere. The real idea behind this blog is actually twofold: 1) We have done a fair amount of traveling and will be sharing our experiences past, present and future and 2) Here's what makes this blog different - Some people think that where they stay when they travel isn't important, as long as it's clean, has a good bed and good water pressure. Well, if you subscribe to that philosophy, then this blog is probably not for you. I believe that where you stay, the uniqueness of a place and the quality of the environment can actually change your mindset, even your reality of a country, its people and its culture. And I am not just talking about 300 count Egyptian cotton bedsheets! I am talking about places that have a unique architectural and even artistic quality that make traveling transcend the idea of a vacation.

In the interest of full disclosure and in deference to my wife and best friend who has been married to this architect for thirty eight years, I invite you to read an article from Travel & Leisure, which will give some insight into how weird - and I mean that in a good way - traveling with an architect can be:
