At my inner core, I think there’s must be a smidgen of gypsy DNA that gets aroused after returning from a wonderful trip. As I’ve been organizing the Puerto Vallarta trip photos,I have gone down the rabbit-hole looking through other photos from trips longing for even more travels. So today should come as no surprise for the”Wish I Was There Wednesday” post which pays homage to one such trip. During a trip to Northern Germany, I spent a number of days visiting Germany’s fashion capitol, Düsseldorf. While some old seaport towns fall on hard times, Düsseldorf is a shiny example of vibrancy that captivates visitors with its display of old and new architecture.
The Rheinhafen centre of arts and the media consists of three contrasting building complexes and appears like a gigantic sculpture along the riverfront. Each one of the “Neuer Zollhof” buildings is made with different outer materials with the central building reflecting the buildings on its northern and southern side, creating a visual link between the three. It’s truly a fascinating view as one travels down the busy Rhine River. Created by the renown architect, Frank O. Gehry, these buildings were built in the late 1990’s and are a beautiful landmark in the city.
