White Buildings from Around the World

The instructions were, “If you’re coming from Skibbereen look for the white house, go left and that’s the Glen Rockview.”

“How on earth are we going to find THE white house?” Al groused.

But just in town I saw it, ‘The White House’ and our B&B was just to the left of it. Easy! Especially since it was the only white house in otherwise colourful Kinsale, Ireland.

    • It’s good to ‘travel’ through all one’s older photos every so often. I lost a 2TB drive last year and in the process of putting together this post found a folder from our South East Asia trip that hadn’t been backed up properly. Fortunately I had copied everything onto 12 DVDs and was able to restore the bulk of the photos – the shots from Laos, Hong Kong and Thailand came from this newly-restored folder…

  1. Was looking at answers as to why most buildings in southern Portugal are white and it is for the properties of keeping the building cool but also because the materials are even antibacterial in nature though white wash can often rub off on your clothes. Hence the saying “Too proud to whitewash and too poor to paint.”
