Trip Rewind Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, Mill Run Pennsylvania

As a child I dreamed of being an architect, often building entire cities out of Legos. I also drew more floor plans of “dream” houses than I could ever live in, in one lifetime.

One day I shared with my mom a house that I had created with a glass floor over a creek. My mom took one look at the drawing and pulled out the encyclopedia (if anyone can remember what those are) and showed me a photo of Fallingwater, a house built over a creek.

Fallingwater is probably one of the most famous houses Frank Lloyd Wright ever designed. Although architectural fame was not in my future I still admire architecture anytime I travel. I also occasionally pull out the Legos as well. One because I need to justify why I still have them and two because I still love building houses.

Trip Rewind: 4 things not to be missed in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania

Pittsburgh is a fun city to visit, and very livable according to a few of my friends who are current residents there! What I like best about Pittsburgh is that it has a town like feel even though it is a city of 306,000+ people. I have visited Pittsburgh a couple of times as a friend of mine lives there and I always have an enjoyable time. Below I have created a list of can’t miss spots!

Trip Rewind: Frank Lloyd Wright Kentuck Knob, Chalk Hill, Pennsylvania

Some people collect coins, others baseball cards, but I collect Frank Lloyd Wright House Tours. Sure it’s a little weird. It’s not like I can take the house with me once I finish the tour but when ever I travel if there is a Frank Lloyd Wright structure in the area I try to find a tour.

As of 2013 I have been to and/or on tours of 10 structures. Not all structures allow tours much to my dismay. 10 is a mere blip on the radar but I hope to make it to Chicago on day (hopefully soon), which is an area heavily saturated with FLW structures.

Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Trip Rewind: Andy Warhol Museum, Penn Brewery, PNC Park

As usual I had befriended someone at work and they had decided to move on and I was being left behind. I am not trying to throw myself a pity party, but I am just bringing up the point why I now say “I don’t bother learning their names, they’ll be gone soon” when referring to a new coworker.
