I stayed there too! Super chill. Just showed up in the evening and someone came by to take our payment the next day. People staying in the house were responsible for firing up the (coal) stove and all that jazz. Very peaceful.
Top 1000 Village Pictures
Holy crap I used to work here. There was a morning shuttle that ran from the residence to the lodge, but I’d always walk. I’d take a shortcut through the woods and it would let out right before the bridge, which was like a
From [its Wikipedia page](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whiteley_Village): Whiteley Village, in Hersham, Surrey, England, is a retirement village. It was formed as the result of a bequest of £1,000,000 in 1907 upon the murder of William Whiteley. The village is owned and administered by the Whiteley Homes Trust,
In case anyone’s curious, I figured out where this is: [bike trail along the Erewash canal](https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ll=52.934014,-1.282058&spn=0.001403,0.003248&sll=52.925256,-1.281281&sspn=0.046,0.103941&fll=52.933299,-1.28313&fspn=0.000719,0.001624&ecpose=52.93404293,-1.28224452,51.53,-146.499,80.792,0&t=m&z=19&lci=com.panoramio.all), overlooking St. Giles’s (Church of England), in Sandiacre. There are a couple similar pictures there, but none nearly as good as this.
I like the over-saturated look in this, personally. As I said, it looks like how being in St. Wolfgang on a summer day feels. (That one’s from personal experience.) This desaturated version just doesn’t seem as alive to me. It’s just my personal opinion
No but the dog is close by. I took a pic of him in the window as I’m the only person that’s ever done that. http://i.imgur.com/PsZBdhD.jpg
Incredibly beautiful but the town seems artificial to me, as a guy who lives in another small Illinois town. It is really hard to organically regrow old mining towns…perhaps Galena is as good as can be, in which case I’m not complaining.
I was there last summer! The [Aiguille du Midi](http://www.imustgothere.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/aiguilledumidi5.jpg) on the slopes of Mont Blanc right above Chamonix is a highlight. One of my favorite places.
I got 10 stitches at the bottom of that hill after I gashed my leg falling down a waterfall. Everyone is so nice and it’s beautiful even with no filter 🙂

Hey I’ve been there! There’s a cool old cog railway that goes up the mountain and some nice hiking. Absolutely gorgeous.
There’s a place around that corner with really good spätzle; you should try it out one day 🙂
Ahh, beat me too it. I was going to post this! I’m planning my second Europe trip and have this as one of the destinations. You need to take a boat in from the train station, super excited to see this astoundingly beautiful place!
I can imagine. It just breathes nostalgia. I imagine myself to one day cross the pond and tour the states and see all these small towns. Authentic Americana has always fascinated me.

>On the other hand, flowing with water coming from glaciers of the Chamonix valley, light brown and muddy from its high levels of silt is the Arve River TIL, indeed.
not that mountain top in the background, but one right above these house, i’ve been on. you can kinda see the [background in one of my pictures!](http://imgur.com/DgxApfT) Aurland is my favorite town in the world! EDIT: more pictures to share because i can! (i
Thanks to Google Earth, I found where this is: 47.90\* N, 17.15\* E is the lake. The way the light shines so early in the morning shows the picture was taken looking south, which means they were approaching from the east since the landscape
Yeah, I was having such a good time imagining that every morning everyone here just goes to work and at the end of the day they all just come home and share the products of their labor. Then I wiki’ed it, and I was
The walls [protected the city](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walls_of_Dubrovnik#Yugoslav_army_siege_in_1991.E2.80.931992) from shelling during the war in 1991. It’s like an Adriatic Disneyland to visit in August though. (Edit: It’s also ‘King’s Landing’ in Season 2 of HBO’s Game of Thrones for those that don’t know).
This is great. Just curious: what would people guess is the height difference between the terraces? About a metre? Edit: just spotted a person on one of the lower terraces. Must be more like 1.6m or 5 feet or so.
