Pics from the town where you live :)
« Thread started on: Mar 8th, 2007, 3:10pm »

So, I've been thinking about starting this thread for some days, and I'm finally doing it Well I'm pretty sure this has already been started in the past, but I couldn't find it! So let me know if it's already there!

Well...Hi everybody!!! My name is Sonia and I'm from Italy! I've never been very good at geography and I don't have many occasions to travel : so, as here on IHJ we are from all around the world, I'd be really really really glad to know something more about the place where you live and see some pics too, if you don't mind

i'll start with some pics from Genova (Genoa in English, Genua auf Deutsch, Genes en Francais!): it is a not very big town in the north west of Italy, it's on the sea and it is famous for its old harbour - which now hosts a promenade, an open air theater and one of the biggest aquariums of Europe - and its symbol is the lighthouse





I'll look for some clearer pics, maybe with daylight too

Hope you'll join and enjoy this thread

We already have a topic about this, but I can't find it anymore.

Anyway this is where I live, it's very boring, nothing to do!

I live in a really small town about 25 km from Rotterdam






My house, where the window is closed I have my own place, my bedroom LOL

I believe sometimes we hardly like the place we live in, but for me it's amazing knowing you all and every pic of your town makes me travel somehow! So thanks!!!!

P.s. may I ask you a little help? how can you put more than one "quote" in a single post? Sorry, I'm helpless with computer

You all live in beautiful places!

I live really close to Columbus, Ohio so I'll see if I can find some pictures of that.

Sonia, this is a fab thread idea, I'm very proud of you for thinking of it, even if it has been done before, this one can be for the Newbies

I think Genoa looks lovely, very cosmopolitan. Here's some pics of where I live.

I live in a village called Methley, just outside the City of Leeds in England, this is where it is,



and here are some pics of Leeds, old and new




and here are some pics of Methley,

I grew up in Newark, Ohio, which is just 30 minutes from Columbus. It's really close. Since college (graduated now) I've lived in Columbus a lot too.

Newark was settled by the people from Newark, NJ so that's why it shares the same name. It covers a large area but here are just the downtown photos. I prefer to live in Columbus though b/c I like bigger cities.

So... *hehe*

That's Frankfurt



OMG...i have no idea where i should start to tell you about Frankfurt. It's the 5th biggest city in Germany and a lot of people with many different nationalitys. Frankfurt is the Birthplace of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe...and my Birthplace too.
There are a lot of Museums, Cafès, Bars, Clubs, Stores and Skyscrapers.
During the whole year there are some great events in Frankfurt. Not only Musicfestivals like "Sound of Frankfurt". Frankfurt has also a lot of Sport Clubs...for example there are the Frankfurt Lions (Icehockeyteam), Frankfurt Galaxy (Footballteam), Frankfurt Skyliners (Basketballteam) etc.

Uhm..yeah *lol* I like Frankfurt

I'm loving all the City Pictures at night that people are posting, I think the bright lights make places look so exciting, unlike the vilage I live in , it is a pretty village though, I cannot complain and Leeds is an exciting City, which is just a short drive away, it has one of the best Night Life's outside of London.

this is the town where I've born and where I'm living now, Porto:



this is the town hall of Porto:

when Portugal's football team plays European or World Championships everyone goes to celebrate here :


we have a long avenue for walks near the beach:



this is a new building for music concerts:


was very controversial cause some Porto's citizens are very conservative and they don't wanted a contemporary construction on that place.. maybe another place, but not that one lol here's the place:

see the contrast?

and finally the city where I lived for 10 years with my parents before they divorced, Viana do Castelo, a small city on the North, 70 kms from Porto:

Thanks Kat I'm truely glad you like the thread and truely glad you guys are joining it!!! *hugs everyone*
I love your village and Leeds too! You lucky! Genoa has not a very exciting night life

I looooooove your places!!! I love both modern buildings and historical centres too, I love visiting old palaces and churches when I travel *__*
And all the things you write and the pics make me wanna travel so much! If I only had the money and the time!

I'll look for other pics from my town and neighbouring places, the problem is imageshack is really slow with uploads so as soon as I have a little more time I'll do that!
