Now here I go xD Just sorry for these much pictures...but I can't decide xD


Here's Wolfsburg, which is the next big City from where I live:

The Autostadt

"The Autostadt is a visitor attraction adjacent to the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg, Germany, with a prime focus on automobiles. It features a museum, feature pavilions for the principal automobile brands in the Volkswagen Group, a customer centre where German customers can pick up new cars, and take a tour through the enormous factory, a guide to the evolution of roads, and cinema in a large sphere. It is also home to the largest glass doors in the world and the longest printed line. The line starts from outside Wolfsburg and travels through Autostadt to a point on a farm. It is about 4 miles (6.4 km) long."





In the glass-towers (which you can see on the pictures) are the bought cars and wait for their pickup.




The Volkswagen Factory
(This is also where I work ^^ )




The Volkswagen Arena (Stadium from the VFL-Wolfsburg)






The Wolfsburg Castle





And now here's Gifhorn, which is my birth town and closer to me than Wolfsburg:

The "worldwide unique" Mühlenmuseum




The Gifhorn Castle



There's a museum in it too ^^


The City Centre








And now some photos I just took around my house ^^













PS: All of your photos looked so pretty....I love them all <3 This is just a really great idea =)

OMG! all your cities are so awesome!!!!! all them are so beautiful...the castles and the lakes and mountains and the big cities!!...
Midnight Germany is AMAZING!! at least where you live..

but...where i live is so boring and we don't have all the amazing buildings you have...my city is very common and yeah
here some pictures....i'm from Campeche, Mexico;


This is the "malecon" there i go and run...but is also a nice place to go and sit there..and my friends and i go there saturday nights xDDD


This is the Main Park..and you can see the church the catedral...


This is like a castle we have...it was built many years ago...because it was like a protection people used...to protect of the pirates...i went there 3 days ago and took some pictures of me xDD
and also if you lay down on the grass, you embrace yourself and low rolling and its very funny Razz



And that's my school...pretty boring...i posted it in two photos 'cause
i couldn't find a picture which showed the whole school so
one photo for each part xDD

Adams County, IL:

Sits on the Mississippi (which seems to flood yearly):



Lots of old German houses:


Before Prohibition we were home of one of the largest breweries in the nation:



I live really close to Hannibal, MO so Mark Twain is huge here (they crown a new Tom & Betty every year):


I'm also close to Nauvoo, IL which is important to Mormons:


Brigham Young's house is still there too. Therefore I also live really close to the town where Joseph Smith was killed which lead the Mormons to leave Illinois and head to Utah

I live in the country though:


We have some of the best white tail deer hunting in the world:


We're rednecks at heart so stuff like this seems like a good idea in the middle of winter:


And we have our international serial killers:



^^Michael Swango, aka Dr. Death, convicted of 4 murders and believed to have 60+ other victims. He went to my high school (not our proudest alum)

Quincy, a serial killer went to your school? I find that awesome in a twisted way.

This is what we call, the castle which is near where I live.
Click click
Lol I think it's just an ordinary house but everyone thinks it is a castle Razz

u know, im looking at all these pictures and thinking that we should be so proud and happy that we are living on this planet and in all these gorgeous places. its something we daily forget to think - being thankful of our surroundings.

i know i often look at hastings with a look that 'oh my god, there are so many things that are wrong' but occasionally when i remind myself to be thankful, i open my eyes and see the beauty of the place.

I agree. Sometimes I look around and think, man, this is so boring. There's nothing to do here. *want to leave*
But then I look at a photo like this,

And it's just like, dude, I get to LIVE here. Ya know?

^ Wow, nice Smile There's so much beauty around us we take for granted, it's nice to stop and really appreciate it once in a while.

Oh, cool! I know where that is, I had a friend who lived there. I'm from the Plano/Richardson/Garland area Smile I think it's so funny how everyone from here just says "Dallas" even if they live in the suburbs. But if you're from here you get it, the city just goes on and on and on.
