  2. Love the villages and towns. I notice there's nothing from Australia. I guess Grimm didn't travel this far.
    A Feminist Fairy Godmother? I like her!

  8. I love "the menu has changed" one. And I have actually been to two of the towns you pictured. I love towns like that and they are one reason I miss living in Europe, they are just too far away from here.

    1. Perhaps if we got rid of the Atlantic Ocean...?

  9. I could look at those all day! I'm not a world traveler, but at least I can appreciate their beauty from afar. I think the snow scenes are my favorites, and the Swiss village by the waterfall.

  10. These places really do look magical! People can build some beautiful buildings once in a while...and some that don't seem to overtake nature. ;)

    1. But if you wait long enough, as in "Mother Nature takes over this abandoned fishing village in the Shengsi Islands, China." nature takes it back!!
