    I’m not a huge observer of architecture, especially in the “modern” sense of the word. Being around here, everyone talks about Frank Lloyd Wright, who had a house in the town next to mine. Seriously, that place is maybe fifteen minutes from my house.

    I think I’d have to go with the castles in Europe. It amazes me how they were homes and fortresses at the same time, and that so many of them not only survived the ravages of war and time, but some of them thrived and are still standing and magnificent today.

    When I start thinking of beautiful buildings I like, I start thinking maybe their more landmarks. That’s okay isn’t it?

    I’d love to see the Sistine Chapel and the Eiffel Tower. I’d also love to see the Louvre.

    I would love to visit both Italy and England, all of the old world architecture is something that I could really just engross myself in.

    I love gothic architecture (cathedrals, etc.), but I think my biggest love is the Taj Mahal. And yes, I have been inside of it.

    Good question. I love old houses 1900 era and we do local tours of old houses all the time around here. I also love old churches. I would love to see St. Peter’s in Vatican City.

    Wow, there is so much here in Charleston. It is very difficult to say which is my favorite. With all the Historic Plantation homes, antebellum homes, civil war erra homes, slave market,….. But if I HAD to pick a favorite right now it would definately be the Old Charleston Jail. I walked through there a few months back with my Blackberry and took a bunch of photos. If you are one of my Facebook friends you can see the pics I took. I took the liberty of posting a couple of links of some of our rich architechture. But the Old City Jail is the coolest. I especially like the old rusty paddy wagon they have in the back of the place.

      I love that wagon too Michael. I love stuff like that. I’m looking now for an old cart or machine of some kind to put down next to my drive-way and plant flowers around and or in. They’re either falling apart or they’re “antiques” and they want an arm and a leg for them.

    Very old houses….I love them. Old Victorian ones are my favorite.

    We haven’t done this in some time, but we used to go drive around and Jason would show me all these big beautiful homes, those are fun to look at too. I really love the old ones down in St.Paul. I could walk up and down the streets all day, just admiring the homes.

      I like doing that in the boat. Some of the houses on Clearwater and Lake Sylvia nearly take your breath away. Saddest part in most cases is that those “cabins” aren’t lived in year round. Who could have a “cabin” like those?? It really makes you wonder what those people do for a living.

      • Nikki says:

        I loved that part of being on our boat too. You see all these houses from the front, it’s fun to see the back of them. We haven’t put the boat on our lake (Pulaski) yet, but I want too. There are million dollar houses, I’d love to see the backs of. Sometimes, more times than not, they are even nicer than the front.
