Beautiful as it may be, I got the feeling it would be an utterly boring place to be a teenager.
Top 1000 Village Pictures
>They were originally warehouses that were later converted into private residences in the 17th century. Due to the lack of space, they built the kitchens “hanging” over the Damsterdiep canal – a practical solution which also allowed the housewives back then, to collect the
Absolutely gorgeous little village. Walking through there at night to see a play was wonderful, the river was lit up with fairy lights and the whole place had a magical vibe. Something really quirky about it that I couldn’t place my finger on, it’s
I lived and traveled around specifically Bavaria for about 3 months last summer. One thing I learned is that as soon as you are out of the tourist hot spots (meaning international tourists) like Munich, Neuschwanstein, and Nuremburg people get pretty cold pretty fast.
I’m originally from Vermont. The towns (mostly) look good from far away, but they suffer from the same development problems as the rest of the US, namely they force you to drive everywhere. As a result, when you get angles like this you don’t
I’d be glad to recommend some places! 🙂 * Konpirasan (locally famous shrine with 785 steps to the main building and a beautiful view) * Zentsuuji (it’s a town, but also a temple and is the birthplace of Kobo Daishi/Kukai) * Shodoshima and Kankakei
Kaysersberg is a great place to visit. There is a bakery there that has the best pastries that I have had in France. Don’t know the name but it is on rue du general de gaulle and they have incredible escargot (the pastry not
I live in VT. Stowe is nice but it isn’t really like most of the state. The people in Stowe are mostly wealthy transplants from other places, which is fine. Its just that in the state’s other small towns there seems to be a
I’m thinking of going to Tisno for Electric Elephant music festival. Have you visited there?
I don’t know what Spain you are talking about, but in the one I live there are actually more than 30 ski areas or resorts, including one with more than 100 km (60 miles) of runs from where you can almost see Africa ([Sierra
It could be really difficult to pinpoint the precise village unless OP knows, but the southern provinces of China have quite a number of picturesque villages like this one, particularly in Yunnan and Guangxi where this kind of landscape is frequent – most iconically
Great photo, fascinating place! I guess without snow the place is more gloomy… I did a bit of searching for more images on the place, not sure about the names of the villages, but the summit in the middle looks like Bow Fell, [here’s
Oh, my favourite ski town made it to the frontpage! Never seen it in summer.
Everything in this picture is modern Dutch architecture. This also is a suburb of the city of Groningen and not a village. It’s a nice picture though.
Honestly, I’m not sure. I tried looking it up, and found several similar spots in the village that were cemeteries. Perhaps the crosses in question in the photo are another such spot? If anyone knows for certain, I’d love to know. Greenland fascinates me.
If we lose this village gets burned to the ground, beautiful as it may be.

I loved Colmar when I visited! Such a gorgeous little town. I studied in Strasbourg a few years ago while I was in college and got the chance to go to several little villages like this in Alsace. This area produces lots of lovely
Another great view: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/94/Burg_Hohenzollern_mit_Schwarzwald2.JPG
Seeing stuff like this really makes me love the world. I mean, if this view exists, imagine all of the views this world has. Think about all of the unknown/unseen wonders of our planet. There are places on earth that have never been seen
Perhaps closer to [Staverngul](https://www.google.no/search?q=staverngul&espv=2&biw=1052&bih=1044&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=fT6JVbq7HYboUvquktAH&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAQ) A pretty common yellow for houses in Norway.
This is so incredible, thank you for sharing! I had never heard of it or seen it. I would love to see what the interior of that top house (house?) looks like.
[Here’s](http://www.panoramio.com/photo/17271345) more information from the source, and [more](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upernavik) information about the village itself at Wikipedia. I had no idea the Vikings ever went this far north and apparently there are only a few villages in Canada and Siberia that are further north than this.
I’ve been to Naarden (Vestingstad)…great little place with very friendly people. I had been living in Holland for some months at that point and this was the first time a local approached me in Dutch. “Een uur in de buurt meneer?” he asked. “Toch,
