No Place Like Home – European travel photography

No Place Like Home is sounds always so good, and I like it, because I feel at home in almost all theΒ  places I travel. I also like to take photos of what other people’s homes look like, or places that inspire home to me. I’m proud to say that many of my pictures got featured in the respective group’s gallery. I have quite a few homey looking images from my travels – too many to fit in one post. Therefore, this time I will stay with only European homes. As a matter of fact, Europe was my first home place, so I have special feelings for it. Click on them for a larger view:

One of my favorite pictures that says home to me is the swallow and her nest under the balcony of an old home-building in Portugal (the top image). Here below there are some more:

I also liked to see this elderly lady in Faro, Portugal hanging clothes to dry in the sun. Apparently she didn’t have another place to do that, so she went out in the small plaza πŸ™‚ I think this is a nice homey scene πŸ™‚ Some of you may know from my previous posts, that I also like to take photos of laundry

Spain

This rusted but artistically made keyhole, obviously belongs to a home door. That home was in a small town in Spain πŸ™‚

I saw these clay pots in an old traditional country house in Spain. We spent a night or two there ,as it had been transformed into a guesthouse.

France

The french countryside is also known for it’s homey feeling. I had this impression especially in the Southern part of the country, the “Sweet Provence”.Β  When you visit this place you just cannot stop taking photos of everything. There is a special unique atmosphere there. That, along with the beautiful sunlight made so many artists go there for their paintings…

Here we are at a small winery in an old country house in Provence.

We spent one night at this place in a guest room upstairs. Look at that french home window bordered by heavy grown ivy!

A very homey French and very French breakfast was included.

But in the South of the French Alps on the Mediterranean coast, you will also see many urban homey areas. Here for instance is a narrow street with old beautiful buildings. It is in the historic famous city of Monaco. I made a post on our Monaco one day visit a little while ago.

Germany

In Germany the guest-houses look totally different. This is the inside of the room in one where we stayed near Friedrichshafen, on Lake Constance πŸ™‚

House-boating is quite common in Europe, and I saw this one in a small harbor of Bremerhaven Germany. I was impressed to see how well equipped it was…

Well, I guess that home can be any place where you have the feeling for it πŸ™‚

I will end this post with a candid photo of my husband feeling at home in one of the guesthouses in Germany πŸ™‚

  1. You have some photos of beautiful homes. My s-i-l and b-i-l used to live i Provence and the houses were often quite beautiful. I especially liked the shutters in such lovely colors.
