One of the things I love about travel are the places of worship that we visit. I’m not spiritual by any means, but I do find an enormous amount of peace and calm whenever my husband and I seek out various religious structures in the places that we visit. It’s like our unspoken rule of hitting every major skyscraper we can or how we always make sure we do two things off of each other’s travel wish list. That’s just what we do when we travel.
These are some of the places of worship around the world (churches, cathedrals, synagoges, temples and mosques) that we’ve visited in the last eight years. They’re all my images, by the way.
