I love to travel. I like the Tudor buildings in Germany. They are white buildings with brown beams. I like to see mud huts in Kenya and thatched beach huts in the South pacific. I think the bright colorful houses of the Caribbean are lovely looking. Have you see an attractive building on your travels? If so can you describe it? Where is it? Thanks.

I like old cottages made out of pebbles. I love to see old palaces with gorgeous looking gardens. I have been to a few that are rich in history. I tried to imagine King Henry VIII living at one of these wonderful buildings.

Yes, from the air the pyramids look amazing. Climbing up the Eiffel Tower in Paris is fun. The tower in Kuala Lumpur is huge.

I also like the Tudor style buildings in Germany, particular in the North of Germany where they have paintings and inscriptions as well. I also loved the architecture of Barcelona, in particual the over the top ornate uildings by the famous architect Gaudi. I can't describe them but they are eye popping.

Yes, eye popping is an excellent way to describe them. I haven't been to Barcelona yet but would really like to do so. The Tudor style buildings in Germany look wonderful with the Christmas markets.

To be honest I don't really take that much notice of the architecture, however one city stands out for being impressive for it's wonderful and awe inspiring architecture and that is Prague, I was very impressed by the architecture there and there is so much to see, bridges, old churches, houses, the list goes on and the views are breathtaking too. I also think that Amsterdam station is a wonderful piece of architecture too which is a pivotal landmark.

Yes, there are some lovely old train stations in the world. I agree that Prague is a pretty city full of old houses and churches. I so adore breathtaking views. To climb a tower and see over the beautiful landscape is wonderful. I went to a town in Romania and saw an old staircase from a school on top of a hill down to the medieval citadel. In Amsterdam I saw Anne Frank's house. I like Dutch architecture with the interestingly shaped roofs.

how i wish i could travel. i love old castles and medieval buildings. they hold an enigma to them of all the great people who built them and lived there. i also like the building style in Prague. its magical to me. here in south africa you dont get much unique building styles except for the cape dutch farmsteads in the cape area. its quite beautiful in its own but not a style that i like that much. any ruins interest me as well. like those in south america and italy. still the castle style is on top of my list.

The KINGS HOTEL in TAIPEI is a very good example. It is all decorated in RED and GREEN. It is magnificent. Of course I live in Sydney, Australia. Here, you cannot go past the SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE. You have to see it ,it is not easy to describe. It is situated on the harbour very close to THE SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIDGE .
