Daily Prompt: Stranger in a Strange Land

Daily Prompt: Stranger in a Strange Land 

What’s your favorite part about visiting a new place — the food? The architecture? The people watching?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us NEW.


I love EVERYTHING! Their architecture, their people, their customs and definitely the people watching.

Architecture: I marvel at the architecture that have stood the test of time. I would love to have been there when the buildings were being constructed centuries ago. When you think of the lack of tools, automation and resources they had to make the buildings with, not only were they geniuses but tradesmen in the true sense of the word. I have nothing but deep admiration and respect for our predecessors.

People: I admire countries that have held their own heritage for centuries unmoved by the influx of travellers visiting and staying in their land. I think it gives them a certain strength in their identity, a belief on who they are and the values they hold.

Food: This part, although I love it, I tread with caution. Not because I’m not curious or enjoy different cuisine, but because I’m a Coeliac!

People Watching: Just pull up a chair in a café or a bar (what ever floats your boat) sip your drink and enjoy the view. Depending on your location, you might find parents interacting with their families, friends sitting together texting someone else, (this fascinates me :), couples in conversation – I love watching their body language! There’s a myriad of activities going on and if you scan around, there’s usually one that attracts your attention.

Try it yourself!

All in all, I LOVE travelling!

About Retired2Travel

My passion has been for many, many years landscape photography so when the chance came up to retire early, in order to travel, I took it! It made sense then to marry the two (travel and photography) and create this blog. I hope you enjoy it :)

    Love your part on architecture. I find myself staring at historic buildings in awe. Love the background stories behind all the monuments that still stand today.


    • Thank you for visiting and your thoughts. If I can find a quiet spot within these majestic buildings, my imagination takes over and I wonder what it was like back then. Have we portrayed history as it was or as we’d like to remember it?
