In 2007, we went to Italy, to Ravenna to look at the gorgeous mosaics the place is famous for. There are about six places (mostly chuches) with beautiful mosaics, but this one - St Apollinaire in Classe - made the biggest impression on me. I remember just standing there, gazing at the beautiful colours, the shades of green, the scenery - I was breathless. I wanted to take a photo of the mosaic with my eyes and head.
Luckily, we have the internet :).
