Hanging kitchens in Appingedam, the Netherlands

>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

Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire

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

Uchiko, Japan

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

Alsace, France

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

Stowe, VT, USA

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

Segovia, Spain

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

Kulusuk, Greenland

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.

Colmar, Alsace, France

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

Sakrisøya village, Norway

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.

Turenne, France

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.

Upernavik, Greenland

[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.
