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. The white spire on the Town Hall trimmed with gold in the Grand-Place of Brussels, Belgium. The pot maker and repair sign on a workshop in the 1864 village of the large open-air museum in Aarhus, Denmark.The white church in Tlaquepaque, Mexico. White monastery with monks dressed in bright orange robes, Luang Prabang, Laos. A white building with a red tile roof in Córdoba, the second largest city in Argentina.Boat racing down a canal past a row of houses in Melaka, Malaysia.
White decorative walls lead into the Centre at the Sun Yat Sen Garden in Vancouver’s Chinatown, Canada.
White lighthouse on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path near Porthgain in Wales. The Star Ferry terminal in Kowloon with ferries going to Hong Kong.
On the road to Ribadeo in the pouring rain, the buildings often with glassed-in areas where one can sit and watch the rain. (Galicia, Spain) Grundsund harbour on Bohuslan Coast of Sweden. White houses built along a klong (canal) in Bangkok, Thailand. An old abandoned wooden church on our way home through the wilds of Oregon…The most famous of all white buildings, the white marble Taj Mahal in Agra, India.The ‘Lotus’ Art Museum, an interesting architectural feature on the Singapore’s harbour.

I like your capture and colour of the two men and the Taj Mahal.
The two Sikhs were tourists at the Taj Mahal the same as us but were very patient about posing for us…
Oh your white building gallery so quite extensive. I really like 😀 😀
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…
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.”
