Windows can be an interesting part of a building both from the outside and the inside. When I travel I like to look for windows that are unique in some way. I always notice flowers that adorn a window, or there may simply be laundry hanging to dry.
It’s also nice to be on the inside of a building and look at the view from the windows. I always wonder what I’ll see from my hotel window when I’m on a trip. Once I stayed in a hotel in Venice on the Grand Canal that had a window where I could see some of the boat traffic during the day. Later on things quieted down and I saw boats lined up and parked for the night. But the next morning at dawn the first delivery boats came through and soon it was busy again.
I had a memorable view of Lake Maggiore from a hotel window in Baveno, Italy. When I looked out I had a glimpse of the lake.
Wherever I’m staying I like to look out the window right away and see the view. Sometimes it’s just another building or a parking lot, but once in a while it is something special.
