I did a Christmas Tour of Homes in our historic downtown of my hometown. There is so much history here in Madison. Our city was founded as a railroad depot town. The first town lot was founded by James Clemens (my youngest daughter graduated from the high school here named after him). He is also a distant cousin of Mark Twain. . There were 5 homes on this tour. . Anderson - Sensenberger home. Built in 1904. Mr. Anderson was the Merchant and Director of the Bank of Madison. He sold it to Dr. James Allen Kyser in 1926; who was recognized by the US Government for helping bring the 1918-19 flu epidemic under control in North Alabama. Now this home is owned by the Sensenberger’s, who also own a favorite restaurant in downtown Madison, Main Street Cafe. . Thorson - Haas home. Built in 1900 and owned by a farmer. . Lewis - Wann - Powell home. Built by Arthur Holding Lewis in 1873. He owned a store on Main Street and had ancestral lineage back to George Washington’s grandfather. . Thomas - Wheeler home. Built in 1910 by Dea Thomas. He was a proprietor of the mercantile store on Main Street. . Pride - Bashmore home. Built between 1907 - 1911 by Dr. William Thomas Pride and his wife Mary Fletcher Pride. Dr. Pride was Madison’s second physician. This home is a hidden treasure in downtown Madison that I never knew existed and I’ve lived here 39 years. They have a beautiful landscape with horses. . . . . #madisonal #madisonalabama #history #historic #historichomes #historicdowntown #historicdowntownmadison #christmastour #christmastourofhomes #madisonstation #historicalpreservation #historicalpreservationsociety #jamesclemens #celebratechristmas #maplestreet #churchstreet #frontstreet #mainstreet #mainstreetcafe #martinstreet #35758

ANGHIARI ~ A STREET COLLED “CORDONI” . In the past this street did not have proper steps but transverse kerb stones which helper horses, mules and other animals to walk up and down around the town. This street leads to the bell tower and to the so-called “sportone”, a passageway which leads outside the walls. Halfway up there is also a alley leading to palazzo Testi, a remarkably well-preserved 14th century building. This is one of the most picturesque part of Anghiari a hidden medieval village in Tuscany. . . . . #Anghiari #amazing #tuscany #historic #town #architecturephotography #architecture #antique #antiques #magic #old #past #spectacular #scaletterosse #topbrokers #hiddenitaly #hiddentuscany #art #architettura #viaggiare #discover #hiddenbeauty #beautiful #toscana #monument #🇮🇹
"Monolithic" is the only way to describe the 72-foot pillars of Hypostyle Hall, a chamber so large it can house the three largest Notre Dame cathedrals and still have room to spare...and that is just one section of Karnak. . . . . . #egypt #egyptian #luxor #karnak #temple #ruins #ancientegypt #historic #historical #architektur #buildingporn #architecturephotography #vsco #gameoftones #passionpassport #travelersnotebook #wanderlust #exploretocreate #natgeotravel #digitalnomad #nomadlife #igtravel #instatravel #travelgram #picoftheday

[Sep 2018 Chiang Mai, Thailand 🇹🇭] From Bangkok I headed north to Chiang Mai. Even though it the second biggest city in Thailand after Bangkok, it’s tiny in comparison. I found this place way more enjoyable. It’s more chill, way safer and cleaner. . Chiang Mai is a digital nomad heaven. There is a lot of foreigners living here for long periods of time. And the city adjusted itself to the visitors. A lot of people speak at least a bit of English. There is one big area where you can find any cafe imaginable, so all the nomads have a place to work and sip fancy cappuccinos with a latte art on top. There’s also plants of trendy restaurants for any taste. However, the Thai culture still holding strong. Chiang Mai offers amazing Thai food at markets all around the city and the center still features a lot of amazing temples, some of which are extremely old. Overall I think this modernization really did something good for Chiang Mai. It was able to preserve amazing its traditions but also got some side of western culture. The blend really works, so one can find everything he or she needs in the city. . . . #travel #traveling #chiangmai #chiangmaithailand #thailand #asiatrip #thailandtravel #temple #old #tradition #traditional #traditionalarchitecture #architecture #historic #modern #culture #architecturephotography #travelphotography #traveller
